Googles Searches for the Bible Increased 25% in March

By Movieguide® Contributor

Google Trends revealed that searches for the Bible significantly increased in March, largely due to the release of Lee Greenwood’s God Bless The USA Bible.

Google searches for the Bible increased by roughly 25% in March. This spike in interest was accompanied by increased interest in the BibleProject, The Bible Recap, Gen Z Bible and the God Bless The USA Bible.

The BibleProject and the Bible Recap are both excellent resources for those looking to go deeper in their study of scripture. The Gen Z Bible, released in February, is a new translation that aims to connect with Gen Z through clear language and design. Meanwhile, the God Bless The USA Bible is a patriotic limited edition of the Bible based on Greenwood’s hit song of the same name.

It features a King James translation along with America’s founding documents—The Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and Pledge of Allegiance—indexed in the back. Handwritten chorus lyrics of Greenwood’s “God Bless The USA” are also included in the Bible.

“[It’s for] those people who want to discover what America is about and not just citizens of this country but somebody who wants to know how this country got started,” Greenwood told CBN in 2021. “You have all of those words you can refer to in our official documents. It gives more people and opinion, I think, about the beginning of our country and not just where we are now.”

Greenwood hopes it will help Americans better understand why our country was founded and realize that America’s values come from the Bible.

“I believe America needs faith,” he said. “Our immigrants who came here from England and the rest of the world didn’t come here to escape religion. They came here to escape persecution. You just need to believe in something that is bigger than you, and for me, it’s Jesus Christ and God.”

“We’re but a minute part of God’s plan for our earth and humanity,” he added. “I don’t know, unless you keep the faith, God will turn His back on you and I think it’s yet to be determined how important our country is to the great Almighty.”

“I couldn’t believe there’d be a better match than faith and patriotism,” Greenwood told The Tennessean of why he created the Bible.

As Americans across the country prepare for their celebration of the Fourth of July, singer and recording artist Lee Greenwood’s iconic song “God Bless the USA” is a staple for many.

Greenwood, who previously performed at the Moiveguide® Awards, recently shared his heart behind writing the anthem.

“I was raised on a farm in Sacramento, California, and my grandparents were just wonderful. I was allowed to excel in music and sports as long as I did my job on the farm,” Greenwood told CBN in an interview. “When you learn to work with the earth, you have a great respect for it.”

“I left home at 17-years-old and went to Las Vegas not really seeing the rest of the country and world through normal eyes because Nevada was kind of a bubble, but I lived through the Vietnam era.

“I think that’s when I began to formulate my opinion about the country, the sacrifice everybody has made for it, and how we will survive as a nation,” he added.
