What would you do to get the Word of God back in public schools? Two young teachers join a project to create cutting-edge religious curriculum. Coming soon … What Will You Die for? What Will They Kill For?
Can they wipe the Word of God out of existence? Only if you help them.
It says that in the Bible?”
“I don’t believe that!”
Talia shook her head in frustration. The students sat with sprawled legs, crossed arms, belligerent or bored looks. “It’s true. Every word of it. The Bible is the Word of God.”
“They teach us one thing in school, and another thing in church. They can’t both be true.” Keisha wagged her head so hard her beads almost smacked Rodney’s twiddling pen out of his hand.
“Ow!” he whined.
“Naw, My temple says evolution’s okay, just believe what you want. Religion and science, they are different things.” Rajid shrugged and went back to staring at the ceiling.
“No, No,” Talia exclaimed. “The Bible has all the truth — about History, about Science, about everything! Truth is truth. How can there be different kinds?”
“Ms Rodriguez, can I see you for a moment?”
Talia cringed. The Superintendent of Schools poking his head in her classroom? This could NOT be good. She called out the page numbers of the reading assignment and the students seemed relieved to get out their books.
“Yes, Mr. Summers?” Talia asked, joining the Superintendent in the hall.
“I’m sorry to interrupt that lively discussion you were having, but we just got word that you and Mr. Bradley have been selected for a cutting edge study of electronic media development. We are hoping it will revolutionize education, and since the two of you co-teach the Bible as Literature class, we wanted you to be in on the Bible conversion aspect of the program. They’re starting with religious studies.”
