The Soul Surfer and The Holy Bible

The Hamilton Family became upset when they found out that the movie's producer had digitally removed the words "Holy Bible" from the cover of the Bible in order to appeal to non-Christians.   The Holy Bible was in a scene where Bethany's father Tom read passages to her at her hospital bedside.  As a Christian family this was very important to them so they fought to have the words "Holy Bible" put back on the cover of the Bible.  The Hamilton family have won a fight to have the Holy Bible reinstated in the film about her life.  After she lost her arm in a shark attack in 2003, Bethany Hamilton continued to surf and achieved her dream of becoming a pro-surfer.  They were so happy to see that the words "Holy Bible" were put back on the cover of the Bible, and Mr. Hamilton said "Thank you God, they put it back”.   This looks like an inspirational story and I can't wait to see it when it comes to the theaters in April.  

Here is the movie trailer:

Removing the title from the Bible is extremely silly. Where did they think that audiences would think the readings were from? Readers Digest?
