Talbot alumnus challenges Costco Bibles labeled as "fiction"

November 20, 2013

Caleb Kaltenbach, the pastor of Discovery Church in Simi Valley, California and Talbot alumnus, was shopping at Costco last Friday when he discovered all the Bibles were labeled as fiction.

When he couldn’t find a Costco employee willing to answer his question regarding the labeling, the pastor snapped a photograph of the Bible and tweeted it to his flock.

Pastor Kaltenbach said he’s not one to speak out on such slights, but seeing the Good Book labeled as fiction was bit too much to take.
