There is a paradox in American Christianity. According to Gallup, nearly eight in ten Americans regard the Bible as either the literal word of God or inspired by God. At the same time, surveys have revealed gaps in these same Americans' biblical literacy. These discrepancies reveal the complex relationship between American Christians and Holy Writ, a subject that is widely acknowledged but rarely investigated. The Bible in American Life is a sustained, collaborative reflection on the ways Americans use the Bible in their personal lives. It also considers how other influences, including religious communities and the Internet, shape individuals' comprehension of scripture. Employing both quantitative methods (the General Social Survey and the National Congregations Study) and qualitative research (historical studies for context), The Bible in American Life provides an unprecedented perspective on the Bible's role outside of worship, in the lived religion of a broad cross-section of Americans both now and in the past. The Bible has been central to Christian practice, and has functioned as a cultural touchstone From the broadest scale imaginable, national survey data about all Americans, down to the smallest details, such as the portrayal of Noah and his ark in children's Bibles, this book offers insight and illumination from scholars across the intellectual spectrum. It will be useful and informative for scholars seeking to understand changes in American Christianity as well as clergy seeking more effective ways to preach and teach about scripture in a changing environment.

Summer theme: Toward a New Creation Genesis, Psalms, Zephaniah, Romans This summer, lessons in Adult Bible Studies follow the theme, “Toward a New Creation.” The student book writer is Clara Welch; Mark Price is the writer for the teacher book. Judgement and Salvation The quarter’s first four lessons deal with the concept of the day of the Lord, the consequences of disobedience, assurances and joy for the faithful, and the consequences of ignoring God’s truth. Scriptures come from Genesis, Zephaniah, Psalm 8, and Romans 1. A World Gone Wrong The first lesson in this unit leads us to consider God’s truth within us, while the second lesson reminds us of sin’s power. The third lesson celebrates that God has set things right, while the next lesson reminds us that we are not without hope. Scriptures come from the Book of Romans. Left on God’s Terms The five lessons that conclude this quarter’s study lead us to discover how death becomes life, how we are safe in God’s love, what it means to live under God’s mercy, how God prunes and grafts us into God’s family, and how love fulfills the law. Scriptures again come from the Book of Romans. Based on the Uniform Series, this quarterly study presents stimulating lessons that explore the biblical message and how to apply it to daily life. The curriculum helps adults move from a focus on the Word to reflection on personal, family, church, and community concerns. Ideal for a variety of settings, lessons are Bible-based, Christ-focused, and United Methodist – approved curriculum for use in adult Sunday school classes, mid-week Bible study, and small-group studies. Available in regular and large print or as an eBook. Free Extras!
