Recommended by a close friend; I looked briefly at his and decided I had to have one of my own. The Bible is even better than I imagined. Full of many thought provoking comments and facts; besides being a beautiful Bible... Since I received it, a day has not passed that I have not picked it up and read some and just like my friend, have started bookmarking pages. I highly recommend this Bible to anyone that believes in God and our country.
The American Patriot's Bible is a very well-designed Bible. With a definite focus on history, the Bible includes a beautiful dedication page, and several pages on which to write family records (marriages, births,) and "significant church events" in your family's history. Also included in the beginning pages of the Bible are a map of the U.S., and a list of the fifty states and dates of statehood. A few unique features of this Bible are a place to record military and public service of friends and family, a Call to Action, and a piece on the seven principles of the Judeo-Christian Ethic, including the dignity of human life, the right to a God-centered education, and our personal accountability to God.
Each book has a medium-length introduction, which states the probable author, approximate date of when the book was written, the main theme of the book, a few key verses, and a key chapter.
Littered throughout all 66 books are character qualities accompanied by the Scripture from which they are derived, and figures who demonstrate them. Also, there is a generous helping of God-honoring quotes, pictures of significant figures, and sections on significant events, places, and movements, such as World War II, Monuments to American Patriotism, and Christianity and Equal Rights.
The design of this almost 1600 page Bible is beautiful, elegant, and wonderful. The typeface is rather large, most likely adequate for people with vision problems. It is written in the beautiful, rich King James text, but the words of Christ are not in red. There is a quality concordance and several maps of the Holy Land. This is a perfect gift for a history buff, someone in the Service, a pastor, or virtually anyone else. Over all, a terrific presentation of the Bible.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I think this is a wonderful Bible, the large print ,and the history topics such as the american revoution, the civle war, andworld war 2 mentioned makes this a must have Bible for any one wanting to understand how God has played such a great roll in the shaping of our nation.
The illistrations of the topics and the color of the pages catch your eye, also in the back of the book there is a list of Presidents, a subject index, and a concordance which are quite helpful, I can't say one negative thing about this Bible.
If you want to learn what the founding fathers really believed, pick up The American Patriot's Bible and take a look. The historical information is well researched and supported. There are state lists and President lists as well as places to put your own family history, which is really neat. This is a very cool Bible, my husband and I both really like it. It still has all the Bible maps but it includes American history blurbs, which is very nice.
