Are we a generation of “biblical illiterates”?

Christians used to be known as “people of one book.”  Sure, they read, studied and shared other books.  But the book they cared about more than all others combined was the Bible.  They memorized it, meditated on it, talked about it and taught it to others.  We don’t do that anymore, and in a very real sense we’re starving ourselves to death.  ~ Kenneth Berding @biolau

This dramatic claim has been made by a professor of New Testament at Biola University’s Talbot School of Theology.  He is the author of a just-released book, Bible Revival: Recommitting Ourselves to One Book.  Additional excerpts from this book, plus other insightful resources on this priority topic, can be found in this multi-page magazine: The Crisis of Biblical Illiteracy (click to download).

Plan to join us this coming Monday, June 23rd, for a closer look at the end of Revelation 12 and chapter 13.  Dessert will be served at 7 pm, with our study starting shortly after that.

Grace & Truth!
