Aitken Bible Project for Congress
Eleven years ago, Awake America shook Capitol Hill by taking the Aitken Bible - the first Bible printed in the United States - to every member of Congress.
In 1782, the Aitken Bible was approved and endorsed by the United States Congress for the American people:
RESOLVED, THAT the United States in Congress assembled highly approve the pious and laudable undertaking of Mr. Aitken, as subservient to the interest of religion, as well as an instance of the progress of arts in this country, and being satisfied from the above report of his care and accuracy in the execution of the work, they recommend this edition of the Bible to the inhabitants of the United States, and hereby authorize him to publish this Recommendation in the manner he shall think proper.
While the Bible contains the text of the King James, Americans did not want their Bible to bear the name of the English king. The Bible was referred to as the "Aitken Bible" because the publisher was a man named Robert Aitken. More info at theamericabible.org
In the last ten years, many new members of Congress have come into office. For the 2023 Capitol Connection, our goal is to take this presentation of the Aitken Bible to the 118th Congress.
The fences around the United States Capitol are down. The Senate and House are now opened for you to move freely through the office buildings and come speak to your legislators as in the past.
We are calling on pastors, churches, and believers all across the country to help us with this tremendous undertaking by praying, giving, and helping to distribute the Aitken Bible presentations.
