Concordia Publishing House has been in business since 1869 as the official publishing arm of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod denomination.
But apparently the Christian content of its website, particularly an ad for an upcoming Vacation Bible School, is too much for Google AdWords, the online advertising service . . .

The “Bible challenge” page has references to Bible verses such as Hebrews 10:23, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope … for He who promised is faithful,” and Isaiah 43:2, “God promises: ‘When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you.’” . . .
