A new website has been launched combat declining biblical literacy. It is an effort led by Professor Kenneth Berding of Biola University. From the “About” section of the website:
Bible Fluency is a free learning program for those who desire to know the Bible but don’t know how to find their way around it!
Our vision is to come alongside churches, Bible societies, schools, and other groups to address head-on a growing epidemic—biblical illiteracy. We who have worked on this project believe that no one should accept the status quo where people know so little about the Bible they claim to believe. The fluency program employs high-quality music, visuals, flashcards, workbooks, small group activities, and much more to equip people to recognize and locate the Bible’s 400 most important events, characters, and themes. Someone who has gone through the program will instantly be able to recall that the story of Abraham is in Genesis, the “suffering servant” is described by Isaiah, the parable of the Good Samaritan is recorded in Luke—not Matthew, Mark, or John—and “faith apart from works is dead” is in the letter of James.
