Friday Photography: Inside Back to the Bible

As I mentioned yesterday, my association with Back to the Bible has been happening for a long time.  Growing up, we often listened to their radio broadcasts.  As I mentioned yesterday, my Mom worked there for a few years, and my Dad has been involved with the board for a long time.   Back when I was a classroom teacher, “Back to the Bible” was one of our field trips.

Usually my Friday photography posts have involved landscapes.  But since Back to the Bible really does not give very many public tours, I thought I would give you a peak inside this longtime Lincoln organization.

Back 2 Bible Lobby Area

A dimensional globe and Bible statue greets you near the entrance.  The large meeting room contains a welcoming seating area as well as the potential to hold many, many tables and chairs.

Back 2 Bible History

The above sign explains a bit of the history.  Originally, the organization was formed as a radio broadcast.  One of the things that I appreciated about Back to the Bible is that they do not remain stagnant.  While radio is still one aspect, they have expanded to include other parts, such as Go Tandem, which is an app that helps you to interact with the Bible in an electronic way.

B2Bible Center for Bible Engagement

An additional aspect that they have expanded to include is the Center for Bible Engagement.  Their ultimate goal is to encourage others to read the Bible for themselves.  So, they have studied what repels and draws people to the Bible.

Back 2 Bible Reminders

Their organization is multi-tiered with displays visualizing all of those who help to make Back to the Bible, including the opportunity for “you” to be a viable part.

Back 2 Bible Partnership

I have taken my kids there for tours now.  Their favorite parts: seeing the giant globe and the see through fish tank.  I enjoy reading all of the history, but I cannot say that I have ever managed to read through all of their displays.  Something to do with interruptions? 🙂

When the time gets closer to their 75th anniversary late spring, I will tell you more about the history of how Back to the Bible has made an impact in Lincoln, in Nebraska and even around the world.

    We had a busy week last week and I didn’t get to read your blog. I certainly would have gotten the Wordless Wednesday! I had forgotten this was the 75th anniversary year. Thanks for the reminder. It’s hard to believe it has been 15 years since I worked there. I can’t be that old!

  2. I did not realize that you worked there at one time. Which department? Always fun to find out something new about friends!

  3. My extended family also has a history with Back to the Bible. I would be curious if you or your family knows some of mine.

    • How fun to find connections! I think there is a good possibility that we know some of the same people. I am thinking that maybe we should move the conversation to e-mail. If you would like to e-mail me the names to odysseythroughnebraska@gmail.com, I would enjoy conversing with you that way! 🙂
