Highly Anticipated Gaither Homecoming Bible To Release October 9, 2012
Cannot imagine the hodge-podge of theology from this mess. Oh, my. :BangHead:
Why in the world would anyone want that bible?
If I understand correctly, the Gaithers are COG, Anderson- so yes - could be some hodge podge of theology.
But should we get a good analysis of this study Bible? Should 5 or 6 respected members of BB do so and report to us, or do we just assume it is a "hodge-podge of theology"
I will probably, actually purchase this. Not for the version, as it's well know I am KJVP, but for the songs and testimonies.
Study notes and historical explanations interspersed in a Bible are one thing. But a Bible, first, with someone else's name primarily attached to it (and yes, I feel that way even about any theolgian's name) and someone's personal favorite songs and hymns, and life stories and devotionals etc, is in my very own humble opinion, inappropriate. Why don't they publish a separate book with all these things? That could be really interesting and a big blessing to those who have followed them throughout the years, doctrinal issues aside because I really don't know what that might entail. But God's Word is God's Word and doesn't need to be "personalized". It's His. Ok, I'll be quiet now.
Just another book for sale to raise money!!!

I kinda like the Gaithers music. wow how quick we are to judge.
They should stick to music.
Among contributors to the Gaither Bible are Baptists Kelly Nelon (Trinity Baptist, Jacksonville), Squire Parsons (Trinity Baptist, Asheville), and Mark Lowry (Thomas Road Baptist, Lynchburg, also associated with Tony Campolo).
