The Bible in the future

The Bible in the future
What future is there for the Bible in our churches?
Author: Henri Bacher (2009)

“The greatest difficulty is no longer distribution, but appropriating the content of the Bible… There is a need to teach believers to meditate and, as in any learning process, you have to give regular booster injections if you want people to continue. We have often rambled on about the Bible, in sermons and Bible studies, but have we truly helped Christians to engage with the Bible in their day-to-day living?”

In this article, Henri Bacher describes some of the reasons for the erosion of Bible practice in the church and in believers’ lives. Rather than starting with communication techniques, his suggested solutions major on the value of community. The idea is to encourage group interaction, networking and mutual encouragement, helping others to enter into regular, personal meditation.
