Award-winning Christian pop band Salvador has teamed up with the American Bible Society (ABS) on its “La Biblia Es Mi Guia” (“The Bible Is My Guide”) national advocacy campaign, designed to promote Bible reading among Hispanics. During concerts, the band, which has songs in both English and Spanish, and whose new album “Dismiss the Mystery” is set for release later this month, will invite their audiences to attend Bible readings and pass out booklets of translated Biblical excerpts and study guides produced by the ABS. (Personally, I’d rather get VIP passes and guitar pics, but to each his own.)

“Rarely do musical artists get the opportunity to work side by side with an organization of the caliber of the American Bible Society,” says Nic Gonzales, lead singer of Salvador, according to an ABS press release. “As the son of a pastor and a Christian man, there is no greater honor than to be a part of a campaign that promotes reading the Bible.

Interestingly enough, ABS’s “La Biblia Es Mi Guia” campaign has done much of its outreach through its Myspace page, even though the social networking site is primarily used by young people to post photos and comments about each other and by musicians to promote their work. Sadly, the ABS only has 55 “friends.” Hopefully, the Salvador partnership will help ABS find some new BFFs.

And while on the subject of Myspace, you might be interested to know that Jesus Christ has approximately 6,663 Myspace profiles, whereas Satan and Lucifer have a combined total of 4,103 profiles! Scary.
