Here some context from
I have written about these Bible classes before. So has Southern Methodist University professor Mark Chancey, who is an expert on such classes.
I would refer you to these posts:
A post on Kentucky’s attempt to start Bible classes in public schools. It draws from my own work on the Bible in America, including The Bible Cause: A History of the American Bible Society (Oxford University Press, 2015).
A post on Mark Chancey’s work.
Finally, I have written extensively about this idea of “turning back” in Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump.
