The highly anticipated new project from Bill & Gloria Gaither, The Gaither Homecoming Bible, released today by Thomas Nelson, Inc. and has already experienced a very supportive early response from the public, media, and retail. Fans are exclaiming; “an absolutely beautiful Bible,” “will make the Bible come alive for those seeking truth in the twenty-first century,” and “Bill & Gloria did a great interpretation.” The Gaither Homecoming Bible is presented in the New King James text and features 75 hymns and gospel songs that fully describe their connection to Scripture, 230 exclusive devotionals from Homecoming artists, 20 original poems by Gloria Gaither, and a custom Gaither Homecoming Bible reading plan that will guide readers on a Homecoming journey through the Scriptures.
“The early response to the Homecoming Bible is overwhelming,” says Gloria Gaither. “To know that there is such excitement over this practical and useful edition of God’s Word, with its emphasis on the way believers over the years and to this very day have used music to sing our history with God, brings us such joy! Each generation has to learn all over again how the Bible is light for its path and hope for its future. May this new Bible encourage all who hold it in their hands to let it speak Life into their regular days. Thank you to all who have contributed to the rich resources of The Gaither Homecoming Bible and to those of you who have chosen to take it home or to give it to a friend.”
