“Why Knowing the Bible Isn’t Enough”
Harold discovered that although it is essential to know God’s word, being able to relate it to different aspects of God’s world doesn’t happen automatically. It took over 20 years in a Christian school for him to recognize two symptoms of a debilitating problem with his view of the world which undermines the role of the Bible in his teaching. Harold will share a simple tool that has helped him understand what God has revealed about His view of His world. It can be taught to little children and yet serve as a visual organizer for the continued exploration of Biblical integration by a mature learning community.
