    Rolling Stone Magazine Refuses To Run Ad For Bible
    2:22 am EST January 20, 2005

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Rolling Stone magazine declined to run an advertisement for a new translation of the Bible aimed at young people, the nation's largest Bible publisher said Wednesday.

    Zondervan, a division of HarperCollins Publishers, bought space in the magazine months ago as part of an ad campaign for Today's New International Version, said Doug Lockhart, Zondervan's executive vice president of marketing.

    "Last week, we were surprised and certainly disappointed that Rolling Stone had changed their mind and rejected our ad," he said.
