A Message from the Executive Director
Reading the information under "About LBM" will give you
a sense of the commitment to understanding and appreciating the Bible
that has motivated this organization from its inception. As the
Executive Director, it is my hope to work with you in exploring new ways
to make that happen.
I say new ways because we live in a post-modern world
where ancient texts no longer carry the same immediate authority that
they once had. On the level where we view the Bible as literature, we
become aware that many bright, educated people have mostly technical
training and little acquaintance with the skills of literary analysis.
We can no longer assume the level of prior interest that we once assumed
when teaching the Bible.
At the same time, when serious, quality Bible study is
offered, it gains a committed audience. "Divine Drama" and other courses
developed by Dr. Harry Wendt are a case in point. We want to be part of
serious, quality Bible study.
We plan to develop study resources, but we need your
help. First, we need to know what you need that you are not finding
available right now. Second, we need to identify folks who might like to
try their hand at developing or sharing some resources. We can become a
clearing house for good things congregations and individuals are
developing and using. We’re looking forward to hearing from you. Get in
