In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I talk with Michael Horton of Westminster Seminary in California about his book and biblical teaching campaign called Core Christianity. In addition to being the author of many popular and academic books, Horton is the editor-in-chief of Modern Reformation magazine, one of the hosts of the White Horse Inn radio broadcast, and a minister in the United Reformed Churches.

In our conversation on his book Core Christianity: Finding Yourself in God’s Story, we discuss why those we teach need training in doctrine, the way God speaks to us today, and whether the purpose of our lives as Christians is to change the world.

But Core Christianity is much more than a book; it’s a new resource for Bible teachers. In a day when many of those we are teaching live largely online or on their smartphone, Core Christianity harnesses technology for teaching Scripture. Leaders can create a group online, track the personal Bible study work of their group members, interact with their questions, and even send reminders when they haven’t done the work for the next group meeting.
