In 1939, the technology of the day was radio, which captured the imagination of a young preacher from Oklahoma named Theodore Epp.
Seeing the power of radio to reach people in a new, powerful and personal way, Dr. Epp stepped out in faith in 1939 by moving to Lincoln, Nebraska to launch a visionary ministry on the local radio station KFOR. That ministry was Back to the Bible. And from that humble beginning, a global ministry emerged that has seen countless lives transformed for eternity.
Embedded deeply in the DNA of Back to the Bible is the passion to harness the latest technologies to reach the world with the life-transforming power of God’s Word.
Today, in keeping with that vision, Back to the Bible is putting its energy into using the latest web-based and mobile technologies (goTandem) to reach people with customized biblical content which will help the individual grow more effectively in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Center for Bible Engagement (CBE) serves as Back to the Bible’s research and development division and seeks to answer this question: Why do so many people own Bibles but so few read them? To answer that question, they go beyond statistics and consider the attitudes and behaviors that significantly transform a person’s relationship with God, in order to develop tools and resources that cultivate spiritual growth.
Back to the Bible is seventy-five years strong with an eye to the future and a commitment to walking with people daily into a living, growing and passionate relationship with Jesus Christ by equipping and motivating them to engage in Scripture daily.
