Americans sure love to talk about religion. And many are riled about about whether or not they think the U.S. is, or should be, a “Christian nation.”

If they knew what they were talking about, they might even make a difference. How many of those in the debate have ever actually read and studied their scriptures?

First Things is blogging about the appalling religious illiteracy that is epidemic in America in the 21st century.

I wrote about this a while ago because it’s become a mission for me and my colleagues here at Seattle Pacific University to address this very issue.

In fact, several of our SPU theology scholars are now leading a free, open-to-the-public Bible study, working through the scriptures in a new online forum. You can be a part of that free of charge. I’ve signed up for the email updates.
