The following resources can be considered when thinking about how to shape a Bible-based course in a public school.

Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty (www.bjconline.org) is an education and advocacy organization that provides information on church-state issues.

Bible Literacy Project (www.bibleliteracy.org) offers curricula and training on teaching the Bible in public schools.

First Amendment Center (www.firstamendmentcenter.org) runs the Religious Freedom Education Project, providing education and information on religious freedom issues. Publications include “The Bible and Public Schools” and “Teaching about Religion in American Life: A First Amendment Guide.”

“The Joint Statement of Current Law on Religion in the Public Schools,” signed by 35 diverse religious and other organizations, can be found at www.aclu.org/religion-belief/joint-statement-current-law-religion-public-schools.

Society of Biblical Literature (www.sbl-site.org) is an international organization that publishes “Teaching the Bible,” an e-publication for secondary school educators interested in Bible study.
