I read a lot of books, and I have a lot of experience with Bibles. I remember getting my grandmother a fancy Bible made just for her when I was a little kid that was huge in downtown Hamilton, Ohio, which she cherished all her life. I went to Sunday school, then catechism until the 8th grade, and read the Bible many times over during that duration. And the Bible has come up a lot for looking up research specifically over the last 40 years at least once a week. To go along with my Bibles, I have a very unique set of books that my grandmother gave me which is the Encyclopedia of the Bible, published in 1968, the year of my birth that extends into many volumes, which goes into explicit detail about the events and characters of the Bible which I have rifled through for over 45 years now. They are some of my most cherished books. But I’ll have to say, after all the experience and exposure to the Bible, I have never had one that I like as much as the new Lee Greenwood King James American version. I wasn’t sure what to think about it because it has the American Constitution in the back, along with the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Pledge of Allegiance, along with a signed page with the Lee Greenwood song, “God Bless the USA.” I bought it because it reminded me of this period in time when election fraud postponed the MAGA movement to some extent, and that song reminds me of Trump because he plays it whenever he does a public event. “God Bless the USA” has become the song of the Trump presidency, so I thought I’d give the Lee Greenwood Bible a chance.
When it arrived, it felt magical. It is built well; it’s compact yet very vast like you expect Bibles to be. But it’s made of a very durable vinal with images of the American flag, which takes the religious feel of Sunday church services that are too ornate and puts the document of western civilization comfortably in your hands. It far exceeded my expectations, and I have found that I love it very much. I love the way it feels in my hands. I love how soft the pages are. I have a thing for well-crafted books with especially high-grade pages. I have a complete works of Shakespeare book that my wife gave me three decades ago that I love a lot. I often get it down just to rub my fingers through the pages. I also like the smell of books, which is a running joke with my grandchildren. I never hold a book without smelling the pages because I like how books of fine quality smell. And this Lee Greenwood Bible is made of some really good stuff that makes you want to interact with it. I was astonishingly impressed with its quality. If you were going to make a Bible representing Trump, MAGA, and the overall America First Agenda, Lee Greenwood impressively hit the target.
I’ve spoken many times about keeping copies of The Federalist Papers and The Anti-Federalist Papers next to my reading chair, which I reflect upon often. Both copies have the Constitution and Bill of Rights in the back, and I find myself reading them all the time, just for fun and reflection. But the way this Lee Greenwood Bible is set up, it’s very easy to read the Founding Documents, which is quite purposeful. Not only is the extensive story of the Bible there for reflection, but connecting it to the American Founding documents is immensely satisfying. It’s very easy to read them; the spacing is well done and clear. It may be the best presentation I’ve seen of the Founding Documents outside of a museum, such as what you can see at the National Archives. But these are in the Bible, so everything that gave birth to America is right there to study in a very troubled time. And no matter what anybody thinks of religion, there wouldn’t be an America without the Bible. The attacks on that relationship with the separation of church and state arguments, the Larry Flint Hustler challenges in the Supreme Court, the foundation of America is the Bible, a collection of philosophy that is the root of all western civilization that has led to the most prosperous nation in the world. It’s nothing to be taken lightly, and the Lee Greenwood Bible doesn’t; it’s very respectful and offers itself as a good friend when the mind of mankind needs it most. I absolutely love it. Living in Cincinnati, I followed the Hustler case, and eventually, before his death, Larry Flint managed to get a Hustler store put in near my home in Monroe, Ohio. It bothers me every time I see it. It’s a spit in the face of Christian values and a mark on my community, like some dog pissing on the values of America. And there has been a lot of that going on, where the world has been working hard to destroy America by removing it from its foundations. So in many ways, Lee Greenwood understood the need for an American Bible that put everything in one place. And it works far better than I would have thought.
I’ve been thinking about this problem for a long time, the long progressive war that has not involved bullets and troops but the essential values of our families and personal intellects. So many people are beaten up intellectually; they are addicted to porn and have had their childhood curiosities destroyed by the empty promises of a progressive society. And people need to turn off the TV more often and read a book of some kind for their own good. Because if people lose the ability to think or have fundamental values, there is no way to have a society of any kind. If we are ever to Make America Great Again, people need to learn to read again and have the fundamental values that church on Sundays typically provides. But Lee Greenwood has made it easy, he has put in that one Bible the essence of Making America Great Again, and as we are ready for the Midterms and the long march out of a time of great sadness, characterized by the Biden administration and its criminals of misconduct, and globalists insurgents, and hostile Liberal World Order maniacs, only a sharp intellect can fight the mischief of the vast evil intentions displayed in front of us to assault our senses, and to make fighting back seem hopeless. I can report that holding the Lee Greenwood Bible and reading from it will help solve these ills. It will restore you in ways that you probably didn’t know you needed to nurture. And it will undoubtedly positively enhance your life. I think it has the potential to restore America to a greatness we previously took for granted, such as when I was little, and we were buying a Bible for my grandmother, a grand endeavor that she loved dearly. I’ve seen the positive effect Bibles can have on people firsthand. But now we need it more than ever, and Lee Greenwood certainly has delivered. I have all new respect for him for doing what he has done, and this Bible is undoubtedly one that will be near me at all times as we fight the battle that is before us now. And it will make such a battle much more endurable.
