Product Description

America faces a great crisis: the Book that has played an integral role in developing and forming our great nation is now the same Book that few read and even fewer understand.

Taking Back the Good Book explores how America has developed an apathetic---sometimes hostile---attitude toward biblical principles. To counter this troubling attitude, Kroll offers practical suggestions to help you develop a personal strategy to fuel your passion for and understanding of God's Word.

Publisher's Description

Woodrow Kroll demonstrates the crisis of biblical illiteracy, provides solutions to recover biblical knowledge, and challenges all Christians to take part in taking back the Good Book.


Firmly facing the fact that many people (including Christians) are approaching the Bible as if it’s just not worth reading, even though it may be God’s Word, Back To The Bible President Woodrow Kroll has written Taking Back the Good Book to alert his fellows to the problem and to enable them to do just what the title says. He states unequivocally that America is in a crisis concerning the Bible, and then gives many significant, constructive solutions.
Written with urgent immediacy, providing interest-catching, biblically-accurate text, and showing great understanding of the problem, Kroll first discusses the reader’s intimate need of the Bible, then moves on to the Bible’s impact throughout America’s history. Building momentum, he next carries his audience into the core of this book: Bible illiteracy; he discusses its causes, its horrendous impact on American life, especially in the church, and what can be done. The vivid, spiritually practical ideas given definitely connect you back with the Author of the Bible. And once you have connected, the next steps move you out to the church, the community, and the nation. The appendices supply further help getting you back into the Bible: 3 important Bible reading challenges, and modern helps to keep you in the Bible.
Within my own church, people are having a hard time getting into the Bible. I hear statements like, “It’s so hard to set time aside in my busy day for Bible reading,” and, “Well at least I hear what the pastor says on Sunday mornings even if I don’t read the Bible any other time.” Taking Back the Good Book strikes directly at the heart of our problems and gives invaluable help. I recommend this book for any Christian who wants to move closer to the Lord, and any church truly trying to energize its congregation. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
