Bible 2.0: Helping Adolescents to Read the Bible
Featuring JP O'Conner • Princeton University
When Johannes Gutenberg smithed his first printing press, did he realize the radical shift in worldview that would begin? Did he know that he was pushing a tiny snowball off of a very tall mountain? Could he have envisioned a tiny Bible App with 100s of translations of the Biblical text in the pocket of one’s coat?
However, how has the rise in electronic media changed the way we teach the Bible to adolescents?
Has accessibility to electronic Bibles helped students become more literate in the scriptures?
Join us in investigating the questions and come to breakout sessions to see how you can use Science, Adolescent Literature, Art and more to get students into the text.
