Let's Thank Zondervan for Stopping the "God Bless the USA Bible"
Religion Unplugged is reporting that Zondervan has announced they are backing out of this Bible project. It appears that this petition had an impact. Thanks to all who participated. Now, let's sign on as a way of saying "thanks" to Zondervan for making the right choice. For more on the story see: https://tinyurl.com/6puujv78
Zondervan/HarperCollins has a been a great blessing to Christian publishing for many years. But a forthcoming volume damages this fine record. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11 Zondervan has licensed releasing the "God Bless the USA" Bible that will include the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and pledge of allegiance, in addition to the lyrics for the song of the same name by country singer Lee Greenwood., “God Bless the USA.” This is a toxic mix that will exacerbate the challenges to American evangelicalism, adding fuel to the Christian nationalism and anti-Muslim sentiments found in many segments of the evangelical church.
Please add your signature to this petition in the hopes that Zondervan/HarperCollins will rethink this project and stop the release of this publication.
