'Duck Dynasty' Bible Due in October From Phil Robertson, Son Al

The stars of "Duck Dynasty" already have their own bobbleheads and NASCAR race, and now the family can add bible to the list after partnering with Christian publisher Thomas Nelson.

Family patriarch Phil Robertson and eldest son Al Robertson are listed as executive editors of "The Duck Commander Faith and Family Bible," which will be released in October, according to The Huffington Post. The bible will be released in the King James version, focusing on the Robertson family's "core values: faith, family, fellowship, forgiveness, and freedom."

Al Robertson was the senior pastor at White's Ferry Road Church in West Monroe, Louisiana, before leaving in 2013 to join A&E's "Duck Dynasty," according to The Christian Post. The Post said he was originally part of his father's million-dollar duck call business before leaving to do full-time ministry work in 1988.

"We are honored and excited to be working with Phil and Al Robertson on this new Bible," Robert Sanford, vice president and associate publisher for Thomas Nelson's Bible group, said in a statement, according to SGNScoop.com. "The Robertson family's passion for the Word is infectious and the impact of their ministry is amazing. We see this Bible as being something people can grow with in their own personal walk with God."

The publisher said the "Duck Commander Bible" has been in the works for nearly two years and that both Robertsons were dedicated to the project and "welcomed this opportunity to work on something bigger than themselves."

"This is just one more way that we can present, as ministers, the message of Jesus to the world around us," Phil Robertson said in a statement.

Al Robertson said he hopes fans and people of faith will find comfort in the Duck Commander Bible for years to come.

"One of the things Dad and I are excited about for this Bible project, is that it's timeless because it’s connected to the Word of God," he said in his statement.

The family's reality show faced a critical juncture in December when A&E briefly suspended Phil Robertson for controversial comments he made about gays and African-Americans. The show suffered its lowest ratings during season five this spring, but still remained cable's highest rated show, beaten out only by ABC's "Modern Family" on Wednesday nights.
