His Word...Not return void

...even in China

Tourists visiting Beijing for next year's Summer Olympics may find Bibles in their hotel rooms.

China's state-run news agency quotes the vice president of the China Patriotic Catholic Association as saying his group is willing to gather Bibles to place in hotel rooms.

The Beijing games are expected to attract more than a-half million people.

Beijing has about 700 star-rated hotels and should have about 800 by the time the Olympics open August Eighth, 2008.

China's communist government strictly monitors religious practices and allows worship only in churches, mosques and temples run by state-monitored religious groups.
