The rising tide of cultural indifference to traditional biblical values threatens to deny our teenagers, our youth, their inalienable right to cultural transparency, namely exposure to the Bible

Within the pages of Bob Dowell’s new book, Papa, Tell Us About the Bible($14.49, paperback, 9781498453509; $6.99, ebook, 9781498453516), readers will find a book that instructs and entertains through an engaging dramatic framework and a narrative filtered through the characters’ dialogue, thus enhancing reader appeal to both adults and kids alike.

In Papa, Tell Us About the Bible, three girls are on edge after learning their mom has enrolled them in a church camp for the summer. A featured activity of the camp, they discover, is Bible quiz competition, opposing teams competing for the most correct answers. Realizing this challenge requires major preparation, they quickly agree on a plan: begin reading Papa’s Understanding the Bible: Head and Heart. Soon the plan is modified: ask Papa to tell us about the Bible. Thus begins an engaging little drama: Papa and his three granddaughters seated around the kitchen table in dialogue about the Bible, Papa narrating and explaining, the granddaughters responding with questions and observations.

“The rising tide of cultural indifference to traditional biblical values threatens to deny our teenagers, our youth, their inalienable right to cultural transparency, namely exposure to the Bible, the book that has shaped the defining values of Western Civilization, perhaps nowhere more emphatically than in the United States, as the historical records of our founding fathers vividly illustrate,” says Dowell.

Bob Dowell, PhD, is an innovative Christian writer dedicated to counteracting the rising tide of cultural indifference to the Bible. After spending many years as a university professor teaching composition and literature, including a special class entitled The Bible as Literature, Dr. Bob felt compelled to retire from teaching in order to utilize his literary knowledge and composition skills in promoting Christian values. He and his wife divide their time between their home in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas and their family farm in East Texas, where they raise cattle.
