Bible for Dummies

Ray Ortland posts this list of 6 things that we can do to combat the Biblical illiteracy that runs through our churches. I especially appreciate the emphasis on reading the Bible in the worship service. Years ago, a friend mentioned to me that a certain church was "liberal" because they read the Bible publicly. This illustrates how foreign the public reading of Scripture is to many people in the church.

If we are, as we claim, people of the Word, why does it not hold a more prominent place in the worship of the church? Food for thought!
