Speaking at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day in 2009, President Barack Obama called the soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and coastguardsmen "the best of America." Indeed, these men and women move beyond narrow self-interest, volunteering to put their lives on the line for people they don't personally know. They have the same spirit as those who signed the Declaration of Independence, who, with firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, mutually pledged "to each other, our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor."
"HCSB Heroes Bibles" are uniquely designed for each military branch, with the full text of the popular HCSB translation and an extended section of essays, prayers, patriotic hymns, and spiritual guidance. The smaller trim size, durable simulated leather binding, and added inspirational notes make them easy to use in the field. Other features include a special presentation page, the words of Christ in red, the plan of salvation, and a two-piece gift box.
