Have you read the Bible and found it in need of a little "juice"? Ever wish the Good Book were, well, Better?

Behold! This fall Christian publisher Thomas Nelson is publishing The Duck Commander Faith and Family Bible. The book, due out on October 28, will be a King James Bible with added commentary by Phil Robertson and his son, Al.

The reality TV stars will write 30 “life-changing testimonials” and 125 “Set Your Sights” features to flesh out the Holy Scripture for those who find the Word of God a bit on the dry side or can't get past all the "thees", "thous" and "begats".

Phil Robertson, you may remember, was suspended by the A&E network from the "Duck Dynasty" television program late last year in response to controversial comments he made about homosexuality and slavery in an interview.

Will it sell? Probably. There's a market for just about anything in this country. But just imagine the fireworks on certain news outlets if, say, Alec Baldwin or some other liberal television star had the audacity to put out his or her own personalized Bible.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
