Do publishers ever get tired of coming up with new ways to sell God’s Word?
Zondervan has come out with new Bibles using the NIV. These various Bibles are produced under the title of “VerseLight.” The advertisement in the catalog I received from a local “Christian” book store chain has this to say about this new idea for taking in more money: “For anyone who’s wanted, or wanted to give, a Bible with verses highlighted based on the person’s need…now there is VerseLight. The complete NIV has specific passages highlighted throughout for hope, love, faith or prayer.” That’s right, four new Bibles, and probably more on the way.
How about how to study God’s word for yourself instead of letting someone do it for you?
It seems to me that Zondervan came up with a way to make money off of lazy Christians who will let Zondervan tell them what verses are appropriate for their particular need.
Thank you, Zondervan, but I’d rather study for myself and choose my own verses. How about you just publish the Bible and quit thinking up new ways to enrich yourself off of God’s Word. And while you’re at it, Zondervan, how about you quit selling heresy and Romanism in your “Family Christian Stores”!
