It appears demand for the real truth of the Bible goes far beyond the English language.
It has just been announced that “Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You’ve Never Been Told” will be translated into Korean.
According to Nashville-based publisher Thomas Nelson, a licensing agreement has been reached with Cana Books to translate and publish the book by WND Executive News Editor Joe Kovacs within the next 18 months.
“This is great news in the worldwide effort to shatter the fables and spread Bible truth,” said Kovacs. “I’m truly humbled by the positive reaction to ‘Shocked by the Bible’ not only here in the United States, but in other countries as well.”
“I hope someone can get the Korean version into the hands of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il, or at least one of his minions pretending to be him.”
Bible is completely true, but you may never have heard the spectacular,
ultimate destiny God has in store for you. It’s far more glorious than

Matt Baugher, vice president and publisher of Thomas Nelson, said: “People around the world are challenged and uplifted daily by the stirring words in the Bible. So many, though, are operating on half-truths and misinformation. Joe Kovacs’ book clears up many of these misconceptions in an accessible and fun presentation. We’re thrilled to see it take hold in the influential Korean marketplace.”

mentioned visiting baby Jesus in a Bethlehem manger (They saw Jesus for the first time as a young
child in a house).
- The Bible never specifically mentions the day, month, year or even season
Jesus was born.
- There’s no mention of a Christmas
or any tree in the gospels recording Jesus’ birth. However, there is a custom
mentioned in the Old Testament that shows people decorating trees with silver
and gold. You might be astounded to find out what God says about such a
- The Bible does not say Eve bit into an apple
- There were not just two of each animal aboard Noah’s Ark
- Jesus did not come to make everyone understand His message
