(PSSST, here’s something extra today: It’s Billy Graham’s 90th birthday! CLICK HERE to check out our special birthday tribute. And, now, on with our regular coverage …)

Bondcover4emailAfter a year of preparation, we’re proud to introduce: “Ian Fleming’s Seven Deadlier Sins & 007’s Moral Compass: A Bible Study with James Bond.”
    We can guarantee this: The new study will draw a crowd, including younger adults and people who may never have attended a Bible study before.
    We all know that the basic idea is popular. There have been lively Bible studies with “Peanuts” characters, Andy Giffith, the Simpsons and Frodo, too! People love to make connections between the tales that light up their everyday world and the scriptures that light their spiritual pathway.
    However, unlike many “Gospel According to …” Bible studies that add a biblical analysis after the fact, Ian Fleming truly did set out to explore a range of powerful spiritual themes in his stories about secret agent James Bond. Author Benjamin Pratt—a retired pastor and a lifelong literary scholar—has tracked down the connections between Fleming, James Bond, Bond’s colorful villains and timeless biblical wisdom in this new book.
    It’s geat for groups! And, starting today, our brand new Web site, http://www.BondBibleStudy.info, is the global “home” for men and women eager to take this new adventure.
    We’re already road testing the Bible study with pilot groups—and it’s turning out to be a wonderful experience. Soon, we’ll be sharing more ideas from one discussion group to another.
