Mission Statement

The Bible Literacy Project, Inc., is a non-partisan, non-profit endeavor to encourage and facilitate the academic study of the Bible in public schools. Founded in 2001 by Chuck Stetson and Richard Scurry, we believe that failure to teach about the Bible leaves students in ignorance and cultural illiteracy.

Description

The Bible Literacy Project works to assist public and private schools in teaching about the Bible in literature or social studies classes. Our curriculum is academic, rather than devotional, and ensures that all students have the background in Biblical themes and references they need to approach great works of art and literature.

Our funding comes from individual donors and from several well-known foundations, including the John Templeton Foundation, the Bradley Foundation and the Shelby Cullom Davis Foundation. Our Advisory Board consists of prominent scholars who are Protestant, Roman Catholic and Jewish, including Dr. Jean Bethke Elshtain of the University of Chicago, Os Guinness of the Trinity Forum, Dr. Ellen Frankel of the Jewish Publication Society, and Dr. Mary Ann Glendon of Harvard University.
