Giveaway: "The Founders' Bible"

Every evening, Josh and Anna Duggar and their kids gather for devotions. "It is a sweet time for our family to talk and share our hearts and to learn about God together," Anna told us in a recent interview. 

The D.C. Duggars read through The Children's Story Bible by Catherine F. Vos, which Anna highly recommends. Now, Josh is reading The Founders' Bible to his wife and kids. The Founders' Bible is a New American Standard Bible that features American history.

Signature historian David Barton sets the record straight, unveiling the true and forgotten history of America’s founding and the unwavering commitment our Founders had to the importance of the Word of God.
 

"Mackynzie loves history," says Anna. "It might be above our kids' level, but when you read something that wasn't written in children's form, if you read it in an excited tone with a lot of drama, the children will sit there and ask questions and catch onto quite a bit. It's amazing what kids can learn."

WallBuilders and David Barton have graciously given us a copy of The Founders' Bible to raffle off to one of our readers. Follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter widget below to enter this giveaway.

  2. I have to say, as a Christian I find this grievous. At best, this Bible represents a misguided and revisionist understanding of American history. At worst, it's idolatry. I don't believe it's our job as Christians to try and justify or glorify American history to such a degree that it promotes the idea that somehow, God was on our side as a country. Aside from self-delusion, it really concerns me how we are representing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. Bibles like this get in the way of the true message of the Gospel.

  3. I don't really like it when people add things to the Bible. It's God's Word, and I personally think it's wrong to add in other things on the side to this special book.

  7. I would love a copy of The Founders Bible. I have an NASB Study Bible that I love but I think that having American history in it would make it doubly fun to read. Thank you for giving us a chance to win one. ~~Brenda

  8. The founders were Christians who left Christian countries to inhabit an already inhabited land. I have no idea how American history and the bible are related.

    1. Because the king wasn't letting the average man have a bible. Also, there were many faults with the Anglican church at the time. So they pointed those faults out. There's a video i think you should watch (I think its called memorial.) by Kirk Cameron. He follows the pilgrims journey and shows what we /don't/ learn in history class.

  11. To those who are KJV only -- the NASB is very well respected among conservative Christians.

  12. David Barton is quite controversial and his methods should be researched before using his book as an accurate picture of history.

    It's a sweet story, and I agree that reading to children, even if the material seems over their heads, is a wonderful thing to do, though.

  14. I am with anonymous 1 and 2. I am VVEEERRRYYY disappointed that the duggars are not KJV. Everyone that reads the other versions should do their research FIRST! BEFORE they go and pick some weird version off a shelf in a grocery store. All these other versions ( other than the NKJV ) are from a book that Wesscott and Hort wrote. It had NOTHING to do with the original scrolls. I suggest that everyone get the "Jesus and His Followers" dvds from Pensacola Christian School. The teacher does a complete study on it. Thanks!

  20. The David Barton link displayed a "Sorry" message for me. I would like to have a Founders Bible to enrich my studies. However, the KJV is my main Bible and the one used at the church I attend. I like the Christian values of the Duggar family..

  21. I'm a bit disappointed the married Duggars are not upholding the King James Bible as the only version to be used. I noticed Derick Dillard quoting from another version on his blog, and it seems like their new church is different from how Jill was raised. Also that music concert they were going to is much different from their standards. I know that children will not all follow exactly in their parent's faith, but it seemed like these young people were all raised to understand what they believed and why. I hope they will not choose a more worldly direction and forsake what they once believed just because many churches are going in that direction. "Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy father's have set." Proverbs 22:28.

  22. Even the KJV isn't fully correct. Buy a Greek parallel bible.

  23. The KJV was actually translated from the Vulgate, a Latin translation of the Bible. Older and more accurate Greek and Hebrew texts have been found and been directly (rather than secondary through the Latin translation) translated using a literal translation framework. The KJV is certainly a good translation, but all this talk about it being the closest to the original inerrant Word of God is just not accurate. Dr Mark Given, among many many other conservative bright scholars, gives a nice explanation here. http://courses.missouristate.edu/markgiven/rel102/bt.htm

    Regarding David Barton, idolizing our country with all it's sin-stained history only distracts us from the Lord and his purposes. While standing up for His truth is a vital calling of all Christians, there is no need to revise history to support God's truth. God's truth stands alone without the support of distorted American History. While many founding fathers showed a strong faith in God, many were deists. God's hand certainly has used the country to spread his gospel, but God's primary concern is His glory not America's success.
