Andy Crouch Joins Board of Advisors

Andy CrouchWe are excited to welcome Andy Crouch as the second member of our Board of Advisors, joining Philip Yancey. Andy is the author of Strong and Weak, Playing God, and Culture Making, as well as the executive editor of Christianity Today. He serves on the governing boards of Fuller Theological Seminary, the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, and Equitas Group, and is a senior fellow of the International Justice Mission’s IJM Institute.

When asked about the Institute Andy says, “Our world is saturated with words. And in one sense we’ve never had more access to the Word—on paper and on screens. But that very saturation makes the challenge of encouraging true reading, and transformative engagement, with Scripture far more complex than it has ever been. The leaders of the Institute for Bible Reading are among the most restless, insightful, and creative people I know. Anyone who cares about Bible engagement should beat a path to their door.”
