    Christians DON'T Know The Bible: How to Fight Biblical Illiteracy

    Christians DON'T Know The Bible: How to Fight Biblical Illiteracy

    Most Christians don't read their Bible anymore and it's shocking how many lack basic knowledge of Scripture. Is this a product of our society or our churches? And what can be done about this? Brad East, associate professor of theology at Abilene Christian University, explains the critical idea of "Biblical literacy in a post-literate age" and the challenges of reaching a generation that is not reading as much as before.

    We explore the importance of Bible memory and creative ways to engage with Scripture, emphasizing the need for a new approach to discipleship and evangelism in a changing world. This thought-provoking conversation offers insights into the future of Biblical literacy.

What a brilliant resource for believers!

Josh is so bright, creative and compassionate. This podcast is a rich resource, every believer Christ needs to listen, you will be wiser and richer because of it. Thank you Josh for putting in such thoughtful effort for this resource. So grateful

Great resource for going deeper in scripture memory

Josh’s podcast meets a critical need for those who are hungering to go deeper in scripture memory. Few Christians would deny that scripture memory is a fruitful effort for a more abiding relationship with Jesus, but there are FAR too few resources available to equip believers on this journey, particularly those who want to go deep and develop systems and memorize chapters. This podcast is an invaluable resource to enable you to go deeper in your walk with Christ.

Thank you Josh for your ministry through this podcast!

Great podcast

Thanks, Josh, for this excellent podcast. You’ve had so many equipping and edifying episodes plus having so many experienced memorizers share their own journeys and encouragement. Thank you for your diligence in putting together great content for the glory of Christ. I am always reinvigorated to continue on my memorizing journey. Thank you!
