The Robertson family’s popularity has sparked a plethora of “Duck Dynasty” products. From books to mugs to bobble-heads, the famed reality show stars have much to offer adoring fans.
And now it seems houses of worship, too, will be able to benefit from Robertson family wisdom with the coming release of “Faith Commander: Living Five Values from the Parables of Jesus,” a five-week church curriculum.
“Faith Commander” was written by Korie Robertson, wife of Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson, and her mother Chrys Howard and will be released this coming May.
The book and DVD set is targeted to adults and children of all ages, as the curriculum mainly focuses on five themes found in the parables of Jesus. Those themes are as follows: faith, forgiveness, obedience, prayer and kindness, according to a press release from Christian book publisher Zondervan.
Robertson said that “Faith Commander” takes common themes depicted on “Duck Dynasty” and shows how those motifs operate within the famed reality show family. Considering the Robertsons’ close-knit nature, she said that their faith is key to keeping everyone together.
“This faith is behind who we are as a family and what keeps us together and strong,” Robertson said.
Howard — her mother and co-author, — added that she believes the parables of Jesus aren’t always studied as they should be, claiming that the book and DVD set will include stories from the Robertson clan intended to help churches explain the parables to their congregations.
“We really believe that this is going to benefit the entire church family — kids, adults, and teens,” Howard said. “It’s something families can all study together just like they watch the TV show together.”
“Faith Commander” studies for adults and teens will be available May 6 and the church-wide curriculum will be on sale May 20. The full church kit will include books, discussions guides, DVDs and other resources for adults and teens alike.
