I spent about two and a half hours this morning editing and rewriting Chapter Four: “A Bible for Every American Family.”  Much of my time was spent trying to instill some drama into the chapter and build a sense of anticipation in my readers as I chronicled the ABS attempt to supply a Bible to every American family over the course of the two years.  Did they meet this goal? Read the book when it appears and find out.
