A new novelty Bible has been released. In honor of rapper Kanye West, this new novelty Bible "The Book of Yeezus" replaces the word "God" with Kanye. The Bible has thus far raised many criticisms where many felt it was a great dishonor to God. Many felt the Bible is "offensive" and "blasphemous."
The book, which is described as a "Bible for the modern day," is not intended to mock Christianity. The author said the purpose of the book, which retails for $20 via ETSY, is to "make people think," particularly during a time when more and more people are becoming obsessed with celebrity culture.
The Book of Yeezus, which is a nod to West's sixth studio album, was initially thought by some to be a hoax when it appeared for sale online earlier this week but one of its three authors has confirmed its authenticity. The book recently sparked a firestorm of criticism and one of the authors has spoken out publicly for the first time in an exclusive interview with The Christian Post.
