The New Left-Hander’s Study Bible

Nashville (JNN) – Thomas Nelson, Inc. has announced the publication of a new specialty Bible designed to appeal to left-handers.

The Left-Hander’s Study Bible is set to come out just in time for Christmas.
“I am so happy to finally have a Bible that is sensitive to my needs,” said Amanda Laevus.  “We live in a right-hander’s world, and everything is geared toward them, including the Bible.”
“Think about it,” said Thad Armstrong, the key figure behind the development of the new Bible, and himself a leftie.  “The Bible has favored righties over lefties since the very beginning.  It speaks, for instance, of right and wrong.  How is this supposed to make a leftie feel?  And this is just the tip of the iceberg.  In our new Left-Hander’s Study Bible we have kept the text of the NIV, but have made some modifications so as to be sensitive to lefties.”
Here’s a sampling of the kind of changes that have been made:
·   “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is left” (Eph. 6:1).
·   “After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the left hand of the Majesty in heaven” (Heb. 1:3).
·   “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for lefteousness” (Matt. 5:6).
“Next we’ll be developing a left-hander’s Bible for men, another for women, one for teens, and one for children.  They all face unique challenges and deserve a Bible that speaks to them.  After that we’ll branch out and do the Native American Left-Hander’s Bible then hit all the minority groups,” Armstrong said.  “We’re even considering doing an ambidextrous Bible.”
