“Duck Dynasty” Family Publishing Five-Week Curriculum for Churches
The Robertson family of “Duck Dynasty” fame is now wading into the world of Christian publishing with the release of a new book and DVD, Faith Commander: Living Five Values From The Parables Of Jesus, which is a five-week church curriculum.
Written by Korie Robertson and her mother Chrys Howard, the content focuses on the five themes of faith, forgiveness, obedience, prayer, and kindness. Robertson, the wife of Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson, explained in a press release from Christian publishing house Zondervan that “There are some things that the Bible tells us are God’s guidelines.” She continued, “He gives us examples throughout the Bible so that we may live a better life and those are the lessons that we have tried to cover in ‘Faith Commander.’ We hope that people will bring these lessons into their own family through this curriculum.”
Casey Francis Harrell, director of corporate communications for HarperCollins Christian Publishing, told the Huffington Post that the curriculum isn’t geared to any specific denomination, but is aimed at all Christians. Robertson and Howard drew on their own ministry background for the content, and did not work with any pastors, explained Harrell.
The curriculum includes a book and a DVD with accompanying stories told by the Robertson family, with separate versions for adults, teens, and children. For children, the curriculum is only available on DVD, and features a five-day bonus Vacation Bible School Program called “Willie’s Redneck Rodeo: Lassoing the Heart of God.”
John Raymond, a publisher at HarperCollins Christian Publishing, commented, “The Robertsons’ authentic faith and love for Jesus was evident throughout our time working with them.”
The Christian faith of the Robertson family has always been an important part of their lives as portrayed by “Duck Dynasty.”
