The Bible: Invisible in the Public Life of America?

Has the Bible become invisible in the public life of America?

Journalist Kenneth Briggs says, it’s “hallowed as a treasure but enigmatic and untouched.”

Kenneth Briggs is a veteran religion reporter, formerly as religion editor at The New York Times and now a contributor to the National Catholic Reporter.

His two years criss-crossing America resulted in his book: “The Invisible Bestseller: Searching for the Bible in America.”

So what’s the problem?

Brigg’s says, “The Bible is kind of off the public grid in a way I’ve never experienced before. . .we still love it to some extent as an artifact. . .but people aren’t reading it very much.”

In Kenneth Brigg’s opinion, “. . .the Bible is the springboard to opening all kinds of ideas, thoughts, beliefs. . .about what our life is all about. . .without it. . . it narrows our perspective.”

The Bible! Read it. Start a new conversation about its impact and influence!
