Will Kim Jong-Il get 'Shocked by the Bible'?

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
just floating around on clouds in heaven! Find out what you’ve never
been told,

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.”

really says, but also what it doesn’t say. It’s a massive news report
exposing common misconceptions and answering questions that have
endured for centuries.
