National Truth For Youth Week Kicks Off Today
TUPELO, Miss.—The National Truth For Youth Week with American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net), including American Family Radio’s affiliate stations across America, is under way. The campaign, beginning today, gives free Bibles to all teenagers who commit to give the Bibles to their unsaved friends at school.
The vital project will continue through this Friday, Aug. 14.
The “Truth For Youth Bible” consists of the entire New Testament in the God’s Word translation, along with powerful full-color comics that are packed with “absolute truths” regarding issues young people face, such as: evolution, sexual purity, homosexuality, abortion, pornography, drugs, drunkenness, peer pressure, school violence, suicide and many others. God’s wonderful plan of salvation is incorporated into each of the stories.
Students’ legal rights on public school campuses are displayed on the back cover of the “Truth For Youth Bible” to inform school administrators and young people that they have the right to give Bibles away on campus during non-instructional time.
The “Truth For Youth Bible” is the result of evangelist Tim Todd’s passion to reach young people with the Gospel. Todd is president of Revival Fires International, based in West Monroe, La.
“Responding to the ill effects on young people of the liberal agenda, which is being promoted aggressively in America’s public schools, we are distributing the ‘Truth For Youth Bible’ to every teenager,” Todd said. “America is in trouble! We must reach a generation of young people that can turn our great nation back to God!”
Added AFA Senior Vice President Buddy Smith, “Each year, AFA is proud to work with Revival Fires to get the word of God into the hands of thousands of teens across the nation. These young people are America’s hope, and the God of the Bible is the only hope for our young people.”
Teens wanting a free Bible to give away can visit http://timtodd.org/freebible/signup.php. Additional copies may be purchased for a special discounted price of $3 each from the outreach’s web site or by calling (800) 733-4737. There is a limit of one free Bible per teenager in each home.
The popular Bible has been enthusiastically endorsed by Michael Reagan, Dean Jones, William J. Murray, Pat Boone and many other prominent leaders.
More than 2 million copies of the “Truth For Youth Bible” have already been distributed to teenagers in an effort to bring salvation to young people and restore religious freedoms in public schools. As a result, more than 25,000 young people have sent decision coupons, emails or letters confirming they have surrendered their hearts to Christ for the very first time.
