Kenneth Briggs on “The Invisible Bestseller”
With Bible sales on the rise, and with its ongoing reputation as the best-selling book of all time, one might surmise that we’re in a golden age of Bible literacy and moral development. A quick look around today might lead one to a different set of conclusions.
Today we discuss the Bible, it’s role in the church and in society, and the curious paradox that while Bible sales are at record levels, Bible literacy seems to be at an all-time low. We’ll talk with journalist Kenneth Briggs, author of “The Invisible Bestseller: Searching for the Bible in America,” about his findings in his quest to discover why the Bible is so widely owned, but so rarely read.
