Bible Across America Tour Sponsored by RV Chassis Maker, Bible Publisher

September 30, 2008


Showing just how in touch the church is with Americans these days, RV chassis maker Spartan Motors and Bible publisher Zondervan have teamed up on a coast-to-coast RV tour of America that will hit 44 states of the union. Their mission: "To handwrite and publish a new Bible one person, one verse at a time."

Efficiency, it would seem, will not be a commandment in this new Bible.

Zondervan is the world's leading Bible publisher, and this five-month, 90-city tour is being launched, they say, "to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the New International Version (NIV) translation, the best-selling and most trusted translation of the Bible."

Spartan Motors is generously donating one of its "test RV units," the 500-horsepower, 42-foot Fleetwood American Eagle motor home (not shown here--that's a teensy RV photo we had in hand), underpinned with their Spartan K2 chassis, for the 15,000-mile tour. Clearly, God put petroleum on this earth to burn while spreading--and writing--the word. So drill, baby, drill--they'll need a few extra gallons for this venture.

We ask, what will Zondervan and Spartan do about high fuel prices and lines (GA, NC) at the gas pump? Faith might not be energy enough for their journey in those areas, but it might help while waiting more than an hour for $4-plus-per-gallon gas.--Colin Mathews
