The Bible: God's One and Only Published Work

This is an interesting article concerning the lack of Bible reading amongst church members. I would also add to the author's assessment too many people are reading such bilge as Your Best Life Now or the latest Joyce Meyers book and think they are getting biblical stuff.

This is is my favorite part,
There are many who feel that church has become an irrelevance. Music dominates. Sentimental jingles have replaced largely doctrinal-teaching hymns which prepare people for the uncertainties of life. The messages are often pick and mix affairs with the Bible treated like a Promise Box full of goodies with everything nice inside. Much of the resulting doctrine is built upon little more than clever observations and personal experience rather than upon the timeless revelations of God.
