Trek Thru Truth is Tackling Bible Illiteracy

In the Bible belt, it is easy to assume that Bible literacy is high throughout the United States. Recent studies have shown that Bible literacy is decreasing.

According to a study done by Barna Research Group, 60 percent of Americans cannot name five of the Ten Commandments. It was also discovered that fewer than half of all adults can name the four gospels or more than two or three of the disciples.

The Trek Thru Truth board has recognized this problem and has begun moving to tackle Bible illiteracy with the creation of an interactive Bible encounter. The museum will showcase 52 Bible stories in engaging areas that will spark children’s and adult’s interest in the stories of the Bible.

“What would normally take three years of Sunday school classes, can be told in one day at Trek Thru Truth,” said Douglas Caywood, President. “We hope the community and churches of Cleveland will help us tackle Bible illiteracy.”
