    The question is, “How can you improve the greatest story e

    The question is, “How can you improve the greatest story ever told?”


    The answer is “You can’t.” Dr. Richard G. Lee, General Editor of “The American Patriots Bible, however has printed this King James Version of the Holy Bible and added throughout it's pages stories of The United States of America’s greatest patriots and their relationship to our Judeo-Christian beliefs in founding this country and those who came behind the founding fathers to keep this nation great.


    The 14 full color features include “The Bible and American Presidents”, “Faith of the founders”, “The Civil War”, and “The Bible and Famous Americans”. They all do a great job of telling how the Bible has influenced the manner in which this country was founded and continues to do so today. How many of us know or remember what the 3 astronauts of Apollo 8 read to the people of our great nation as they circled the moon?


    How many of us know who wrote the poem called “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” that went on to become on of America’s most loved patriotic anthems (ok, well most Southerner's do, as it's in our hymnals and gets sung alot, I know, the irony, huh?)? ((Answer: Julia Ward Howe (yes a FEMALE! ! ). How many of us know how the U.S. Marines came to be called “Leather Necks”? How many of us know how the “Liberty Bell” came into being? You can find these answers in any American History book, but by reading “The American Patriots Bible”, you can also find these answers, and quotes from many American Patriots such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington Carver, George H.W. Bush, John Kennedy, Benjamin Rush, Samuel Francis Smith, Martin Luther King Jr., Robert E. Lee, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and many, many more true American Patriots. All the historical information is placed with topical biblical passages, making for interesting reading and nuances!


    Of all the books I have ever read, “The American Patriots Bible" is the most important!


    This book gives us the thoughts of our Heavenly Father, and the thoughts of our American Patriots, who used His thoughts to influence their decisions on founding this great nation, and keeping it the greatest nation on this earth. I highly recommend that each family in this country keep this great Bible in their homes and share it will ALL PEOPLE.

    Great Bible

    This Bible is is made of good quality. Great stitching and pages of decent thickness, not those super-thin Bible pages. The King James Bible text itself contains both the old and new testaments in a verse by verse format (as opposed to paragraph) There are no cross-references or footnotes. The font is in the 10-11 pt. range and is well printed. Combined with opaque paper (almost like textbook paper) this bible is very easy on the eyes for extended reading.

    In the back of the bible, there is a list of American presidents, a subject index, a decent sized concordance, and some full color bible maps.

    Throughout the Bible you will find quotes, articles and study helps all relating to how Christianity and our American history go hand in hand.

    I recommend this Bible to anyone who has a love for our great nation and the Christian heritage it was founded on.

    As a person who enjoys reading history as well as studying God's

    As a person who enjoys reading history as well as studying God's word this Bible is perfect. No matter what I say my review can't do this Bible justice. From the vivid illustrations to the full colored sections that delve into different aspects of our countries history that literally captured my eye from the moment I opened the cover, has made this Bible the one that I pick up to read daily.
    To describe the quality of the Bible I would say that it is very sturdy and will easily stand up to daily reading. The large print makes it easy to read and the antique white coloring of the pages are very eye appealing. As far as navigating this one its a snap with the subject index that is included in the back. The concordance as well as the list of presidents and list of states and the date that they were admitted as a state are just added bonuses in my book!
    A perfect blending of God and country! This Bible would make a wonderful gift, for anyone who loves history and loves the Lord. The dust cover on this Bible is so eye appealing that when I am not reading it I have it displayed on my coffee table. I can honestly say there isn't one thing I would change about this Bible!

    I know, KJV is kind of an intimidating read but the American Pat

    I know, KJV is kind of an intimidating read but the American Patriots part of this is what really intrigued me. Basically, this translation of our everyday Old and New Testament has been inundated with moments of American History. Moments that were influenced early on from teachings from the Bible and the Christian faith.

    The pictures are beautiful and in color and simply show a lot of how the early decisions of America were contrived by their beliefs. I know it's easy to look back on some of America's history with a frown on your face but a lot of this made me smile. It shows how our early leaders were trying to take steps in the right direction and using God's teachings as their stepping stones.

    It's a beautiful book and so much more than a coffee table decoration.
