True stories about The Peace Officer Ministries Bible: 5.0 Tactical Edition
In the POM office we once had in Colorado Springs, there was a map of the United States on the wall. We put pins on the map in every place we shipped Bibles or provided some other kind of ministry, and the map was full of pins – except in two noticeable areas. At that time, Utah had only one lonely pin, one stuck on I-70 in the eastern part of the state (where I gave a Utah state trooper a Bible . . . but that’s another story). The other place with few pins was the northeast United States, especially the New York area. I prayed for two years about New York, because there are so many officers in that area, and I knew they needed “GOD’S WORD for Peace Officers.” In June of 2001, I was finally able to send some Bibles to Police Officers for Christ at NYPD. Then 9/11 hit, and we eventually gave 13,000 Bibles to New York. Our 9/11 ministry there turned out to be our biggest ever.
These are just a few of the many stories and testimonies I often hear that illustrate the impact this unique Bible edition has had over the years. There is no other edition like this Bible in the world. We need to place even more of these in the hands of officers.
