Time Magazine Cover Story on “Religious Literacy”

“The Case for Teaching the Bible”: April 2, 2007 “Time Magazine” cover story by religion writer David Van Biema explaining “Why We Should Teach the Bible in Public Schools (But Very, Very Carefully).” Van Biema is a great reporter, and this piece is well researched, well written, and timely. “Religious Literacy,” writes Van Biema, “presents a compelling argument for Bible-literacy courses.” He then devotes the rest of the article to exploring that argument.
