Biblical Literacy is a class taught on Sunday mornings by W. Mark Lanier in Texas, US. Mark is a top 10 US trial attorney who also holds a B.A. in Biblical Languages from David Lipscomb University. He is both a committed student of Scripture and an excellent communicator of its truths. The Biblical Literacy class began in 2003 with a vision to complete an overview of the entire Bible and his since expanded to include other biblical and scholarly topics. The founding idea was to create a class that provided “core material” that would offer anyone, including a novice, a working familiarity with the Bible.
