Women and the Bible

… It influenced their lives. The Bible’s history is rich with stories of those who’ve discovered it over the centuries. Consider a couple of examples … Helen Keller was blind, deaf, and mute — the result of an infection when she was very young. She became a symbol of courage. A voracious reader, people would, at first, form letters and [...]

For Centuries, and Still Today

From Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek to more than 2,900 languages … and still counting! Over centuries, across continents and oceans, into many diverse cultures, and to multiple generations, the history of the Bible’s translation is a remarkable story of distribution!

The Bible’s Influence…Everywhere

There it was — in black and white in the Wall Street Journal. A picture of Moses holding the tablets of the law. It appeared on the lead page of the Markets and Finance section of the popular daily, with the headline: “The Ten Commandments for Wall Street Interns.” Obviously, the article wasn’t promoting the Bible’s Ten Commandments, but the [...]

Before There Were Text Messages

Thumbs clicking on smartphones and tablets with texts and emojis … It may feel as though pens and paper — and attention to grammatical detail — are becoming extinct. LOL! For the first 4,500 years of written communication, texts were copied by hand. It was a tedious, time-consuming process. In spite of this, the Bible became the most widely disseminated [...]

Which was capped off by a day at Tel Shimron; the site Museum of the Bible is heading up a huge excavation on in the coming years. Tel Shimron has the potential to uncover some significant findings regarding what we already know about the Bible. As I sit here [...]

When They Know You Want Their Money

Donors need relationship and ministry far more than you need their money. If you don’t see ministry to the donor as your higher calling, your donors are destined to be mere objects in your life and organization — and the connection between you and them will be sadly unsatisfying. One of the questions I’m most frequently asked is about trust: [...]

In Their Own Words

What was it like? Brought together from around the world, spending two weeks rubbing shoulders with renowned experts in their field of study, dining and living together … I’ll let them tell you briefly in their own words: “We get this opportunity to interact with scholarship on a whole new level.” —Rebecca McMartin “We worked on a Leviticus fragment.” —Joseph [...]

Reflections

The turkey has been eaten, the Christmas tree is up and the holidays are here.  Before we know it, we’ll be ringing in 2016! Wow!

Since then, we have conducted 50+ awareness events in approximately 26 [...]
