Prepare for College: Read the Bible

A friend pointed me in the direction of yesterday’s addition of Chuck Colson’s Breakpoint. Colson suggested that one of the best ways to prepare for college is to read the bible. That may not surprise you, but what might is that some leading English professors, many of whom are not Christians, agree! From Breakpoint:

“The relationship between biblical literacy and education was the subject of a survey conducted by the Bible Literacy Project. The study, whose subtitle is 'What University Professors Say Incoming Students Need to Know,' found that every professor surveyed agreed with the following statement: 'Regardless of a person’s faith, an educated person needs to know about the Bible.' Every professor!”
