Only 1/3 of Protestant teens read the Bible once a week.                                 

– National Study of Youth & Religion

“What kind of relationship do we really want teens to have with the Bible? A relationship founded on their trust of us, or founded on their trust of the Bible itself?”  

For years now, youth workers and church volunteers have lamented that teens don’t know basic Bible stories. But have you noticed more and more teens don’t know anything about the Bible at all? Even though there are plenty of teen Bible study aids available, there’s a giant gap between these tools and the total biblical illiteracy of many we’re trying to reach.

Slaying Biblical Illiteracy contains practical tips, as well as group and individual exercises, that will inspire youth to experience God’s Word for themselves. Learn to use the same creative skills you use to plan retreats and youth group games to bring the Bible to life—using the unexpected in fun ways that will grab and keep your teens’ attention. Learn how to help youth work through their trust issues with Scripture and learn Bible study methods you can try out as a group, so that your youth are empowered to study the Bible for themselves, slaying biblical illiteracy and unlocking the influence of God’s Word in their daily lives.

Science in Church and Bible Study

Share this post“And this proves the Bible was right all along!” said my youth pastor. “Here we go again,” I thought. Too often science is used inappropriately in sermons and Bible studies to prove God knew what he was talking about.

You Are Abba’s Delight

By Barry Holbrook My God is a God of intimacy. He is the Lover of my soul. He is the bridegroom eagerly awaiting His bride. His passion for me surpasses my passion for Him. In His wild and inexplicable love for me is where I find peace and joy.

Is He aware of my sin—more than aware, He foreknew it—yet He still passionately embraces me! He chose me—while I was wallowing in my hopelessness.

Relax and think about your love affair with this God of passion.
