Reading Blind: The Urgent Need For Christians to Understand the Bible

Confused. Angry. Apathetic.

That was how Clay Crofford, a recent graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University, characterized his experience with the Bible. Like so many others in his generation, he knew that the Bible is supposed to be important, but every time he opened it he ended up with more questions than answers. “What am I supposed to do with this?”

In response to his struggle, Clay produced a new documentary, Reading Blind, which features IFBR’s Glenn Paauw as one of many voices speaking into this epidemic of Bible illiteracy.

The first two minutes of Reading Blind do a great job of capturing the essence of the problem the Institute for Bible Reading is working to address. People have Bibles. They know they’re supposed to read them. They simply don’t know how.

Watch the documentary below, and check out our conversation with Clay about the process behind creating Reading Blind.
