The Bible Cause
Author: John Fea
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Endorsed in its time by Francis Scott Key, John Jay, and Theodore Roosevelt, the American Bible Society (ABS) is a seminal institution for American Protestants. The group was founded in 1816 with the goal of distributing free copies of the Bible in local languages throughout the world. Today, the ABS is a Christian ministry based in Philadelphia with a $300 million endowment and a mission to engage 100 million Americans with the Bible by 2025. In The Bible Cause, noted historian of American religion John Fea demonstrates how the ABS's primary mission - to place the Bible in the hands of as many people as possible - has caused the history of the organization to intersect at nearly every point with the history of the United States. For the last two hundred years, the ABS has steadily increased its influence both at home and abroad, working with all Christian denominations in the US and internationally, aligning itself whenever possible with the gatekeepers of American religious culture. Over the years ABS Bibles could be found in hotel rooms, bookstores, and airports; on steam boats, college and university campuses; the Internet; and even behind the Iron Curtain. Its agents, Bibles in hand, could be found on the front lines of every American military conflict from the Mexican-American War to the Iraq War. However and wherever the United States developed, the ABS was there. Throughout the last two centuries ABS has never wavered in its mission, and its commitment to be the guardian of a Christian civilization has been proven many times over.

Good Christian Bitches
Author: Kim Gatlin
Publisher: Disney Electronic Content
Amanda Vaughn needs some heaven-sent help. Her husband has betrayed her in the worst possible way, and, newly divorced, she's fled with her pre-teen children to her hometown of Hillside Park, an upper-class Dallas suburb. She's happy to leave behind the shallow, Godless life she lived in California and return to the welcoming, Christian world where she grow up. But things aren't that simple. When Amanda returns to the town and church she remembers so fondly, nothing is as she remembers it. She encounters a cast of old friends, neighbors and fellow church members who are sweet and pious as can be ... until Amanda's back is turned. Then the claws come out. Amanda realizes she's encountered a group of Good Christian Bitches, or GCBs. Sharon, Heather, and Darlene are as fake as their costume jewelry. In the whirling midst of salacious rumors, Botox, and fraud, Amanda realizes that her so-called friends are out to destroy her reputation. And what's worse, it's all under the guise of old-fashioned Christian caring. Will the Good Christian Bitches get the best of her, or will Amanda find a way to rise above the drama and triumph?
