The Bible in Public Schools?
The Bible is back. Just this year, five states Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Oklahoma have passed laws promoting academic study of the Bible in public schools.
The Pennsylvania House of Representatives unanimously passed a resolution in late January declaring 2012 "The Year of the Bible," and this month in South Dakota the legislature passed a resolution urging academic study of the Bible.
In light of these decisions, the Bible Literacy Project is on a mission to get its curriculum, The Bible and Its Influence, into public school classrooms. So far, it has been implemented in schools in 43 of the 50 states.
Of the seven remaining states Delaware, Iowa, Montana, Nevada, Rhode Island, Utah, and Wyoming the BLP is offering a free set of textbooks to the first public school in each of those states ready to teach the course.
