I have never posted a comment before in my life; however, after reading some of the comments regarding the American Patriots Bible I feel compelled to share a couple of quick thoughts from a regular guy. Give it a rest already! My wife and I have purchased three AP bibles. We are giving two as gifts (one to my 86 year old father in law and the other to our nephew who is a Navy Lt Commander in the Middle East). The third one we are keeping for ourselves. We won't use it as a study bible or carry it to church on Sunday (we have a well-worn NASB for that). Instead we'll keep it in our family room, along with other books. I've already read through the many stories and accounts in the AP bible that focus on people and events that helped shape our country and how God and His word helped shape their thoughts and actions. Not once did I feel compelled to wrap myself in a flag or go out and buy a gun. Nor did I become hypnotized into believing God's word was written only for Americans, that America was God's Promised Land, or that God loves only Americans. And the simple fact is the vast majority of other regular guys and gals who purchase and read the AP bible will feel the same way. Some of the high-minded bloggers who have gone to great lengths to speak negatively of the AP bible, and condescendingly to those who would dare to offer a different view, remind me of the youngster in the school yard who would stand there with his arms folded, stomping his feet, screaming "Listen to me" to anyone within earshot. Creating a big fuss - yes. Being overly dramatic and annoying - definitely! For those of you contemplating whether or not you should purchase the AP bible, may I recommend you not be swayed by the comments of those who act as if their hair's on fire. Check it out for yourself. I am confident you will fine that it's a fine bible with interesting accounts of people and events that contributed to making America great.

The American Patriot's Bible is chock full of interesting facts on American history. It is a New King James version, which is okay, but I personally would have preferred a New International Version or an English Standard Version. The only other thing I would change with the Bible is to have thumb tabs...simply a personal preference of mine! The texts are easy to read and I enjoyed the mini history lessons inserted in the beginning of sections and books in the bible. This bible is certainly set up to provide a family history in the beginning and could easily become a family heirloom. The bible includes pages to record births of children and grandchildren, the family tree, the family church record, special family history, ancestors of interest, Military service records, and family deaths. There is a comprehensive subject index dealing with outstanding characteristics of the American patriot, a decent sized concordance, and colorful bible maps to end the bible out. I would certainly recommend this bible for homeschooling families.

The American Patriot's Bible (Thomas Nelson, hardcover, 1,620 pages plus maps) is an attempt to demonstrate how absolutely intertwined American history and culture are with the Word of God. I would not call it a study Bible (although it does contain a decent concordance at the end). Rather, it would probably fit most readily into the category of "novelty Bible". The easy-to-read NKJV text is peppered with callout boxes and glossy-paper articles all having to do with the influence of Scripture on the United States. At the very beginning are maps, lists, and a family-records section. This Bible is very well constructed and quite readable.

I have to admit that I approached this Bible with some degree of ambiguity. I love the Bible, and I love America, but my line of work has pretty much cured me of any vestiges of the so-called "American Exeptionalism". The God of Scripture is not American, and I do not believe that America has any special prerogative in the Divine Plan. Under no circumstances can the promises given to Israel be applied to the US.

Having said that, it takes but a precursory look at history to see the unique role America has played, and continues to play. The US is unparalleled in its foundation on Christian principles, its progress in human rights, its support of Israel, and its support of missionary work around the globe.

And there most definitely is room for the Christian American to be patriotic, so long as he remembers where his true citizenship lies.

The fact that I read The American Patriot's Bible during the 9-11 commemorations--a time when my own patriotism is at a hightened state--may have made me more charitably disposed to this Bible. It has many good features.

I had the opportunity to read and review this new Study Bible. I have to say after reading some other reviews I was curious about this Bible. The articles in this Bible blew me away. There are all sorts of articles that were of interest to me. There is a page that contains the names of all fifty states in the order they were admitted into the United States along with the days of admission. There are several full color featured articles that captured my attention. A few are on the following subjects; The Bible and American Presidents, Christianity in Colonial America, Faith of the Founders, The Great Awakenings, and The Bible and Famous Americans, One of my favorite features is the Presidential Oath Feature. This Bible shows you where our Presidents have placed their hands on the scriptures as they took the Presidential Oath of Office. Some of the subjects that are addressed in the American Patriot's Bible are John Quincy Adams; Buzz Aldrin, Communion on the Moon; Todd Beamer; Winston Churchill; Columbia University; and Christopher Columbus; There is something in this Bible for everyone. This is a hard bound Bible and will last for generations to come. No matter your political affiliation, you will love this Bible.
