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?

Caroline, your assertion that research and discernment are linked is crucial. This is something that can be very difficult to navigate. I find researching easy, but discernment is tough! There are a plethora of resources today that can really muddle our minds and overwhelm our spirits. This relates to Dr. Dru Johnson’s point about turning down our voices and raising the biblical author’s voices. The presence of so many outside voices can be overwhelming, but focusing on the biblical author’s voices and learning their true message brings peace as we can then understand and know God more deeply.
