Reply To: In Lecture 2, Dr. Dru Johnson mentions that there has been a decline in biblical literacy in the Church. After taking this course, what are some recommendations you would give to church leadership to increase biblical literacy?

I think your suggestion is a solid plan. As Dr. Dru mentioned the goal is not necessarily to read your Bible everyday, but to read large chunks of it regularly. This enables the reader to get a full grasp of the theme of the scripture which is vital for understanding God’s character. I agree that smart Christians are not biblically literate whether in High school, College, Graduate School, or the Professional arena. However, Dr. Dru also mentions that being Biblically literate is only half the battle. The other important piece to the puzzle is to be biblically fluent which is how we as followers of the Bible can apply it in real time. The most profound thing he said in his lecture is that the Bible tells us whether or not we should own an I-Phone. Wow.
