Vladimir Putin to finally learn real Christian truth?

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to finally have the chance to learn what the Bible really says.

Can Vladimir Putin handle the truth? The real Bible truth?

The Russian prime minister will soon get that chance as “Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You’ve Never Been Told,” the Amazon.com No. 1 best-seller that champions the absolute truth of Scripture, continues to sweep across the globe, now being translated from English into Russian.

Thomas Nelson, the top Christian publishing company in America, has announced a licensing agreement with Nova Littera / Eksmo Publishing to produce a Russian-language version of “Shocked by the Bible” by Joe Kovacs, the executive news editor of WND.

“This is fantastic,” said Kovacs. “It wasn’t that long ago that the official position of the Moscow government was that God did not exist. Now, all those who speak Russian will have the opportunity to learn Bible truth like they’ve never heard it before, including the incredible destiny of all mankind to be born into the actual Family of God!”

The Russian edition will be the second foreign-language version for “Shocked,” as the book was previously translated into Korean this year.

“I really hope this trend continues,” said Kovacs, “so the greatest number of people possible can have their misconceptions shattered, and see the actual words on the Bible’s pages, the astounding verses even preachers don’t like talking about.”

Matt Baugher, vice president and publisher of Thomas Nelson, shared in the enthusiasm, saying: “We continue to be pleased with the support of Joe Kovacs’ great work, ‘Shocked by the Bible.’ This important analysis of perception versus reality on biblical content is now finding interest worldwide. It is especially meaningful to announce that it is being translated into the Russian language. For the last century, it has been difficult to get Bibles distributed into that vast country. To also now have the ability to provide a fun and highly readable analysis is exciting. We look forward to great things.”
