Crisis in Biblical Literacy

From Michael S. Horton in a recent White Horse Inn email . . .

There’s a crisis of biblical literacy on three levels:

1. The basic storyline – including famous episodes and characters in Scripture – meet blank stares, even with young people raised in the church.

2. Many who can identify key names and events express confusion about how it all fits together. They might have pieces of the puzzle, but they don’t know the big picture.

3. Still fewer of those who can put it together can explain it to someone else. And because they don’t understand the drama of redemptive history, they unwittingly revise the entire story.
