Jim Elliff, founder and president of Christian Communicators Worldwide, will address the theme: "Book Tribalism: A Call to Emphasize Serious Bible Reading."
According to our guest, "We read too many books and don't read the Bible." Jim is very concerned that too many schools and Christian leaders that proport to teach the Bible are not living up to their claim, teaching more of the extra-biblical thoughts of popular authors than of the Scriptures themselves. You can read more about Jim's thoughts on this in an article on the same theme here: www.CCWtoday.org. For further impact, see this video.
Since The beginning of CCW in 1985, Jim Elliff has addressed organizations, groups in educational settings, churches, and pastor's fraternals of various denominations in almost every state of the United States and in numerous foreign countries. Jim has been privileged to address groups in all kinds of settings—everything from a witch doctor's hut to a Communist meeting hall!
CCW has also begun a study center, The Muller Center for Biblical Studies, through which they do serious Bible reading. For instance, their first group of students last year read 132 chapters each week......They ended their year with a trip to Israel to see places they had read about.
Jim has a passion to communicate. He is the author of four books that have been published in the US and overseas, Led by the Spirit, Pursuing God—A Seeker's Guide, Going Under: Discussions on Baptism and Wasted Faith. He has written or edited many booklets which have been published by CCW. Jim’s articles also appear in a variety of periodicals and his messages are frequently heard on radio. He was featured in a seven-part interview called How Children Come to Faith in Christ with FamilyLife Today hosted by Dennis Rainey, and in a five-part series on Revive Our Hearts with Nancy DeMoss. Jim has contributed chapters in several other books, as well as writing extensively for the web. Many of his articles may be found at http://www.ccwtoday.org/.
In addition to his writing and travel, Jim began Christ Fellowship of Kansas City in 2003. This unique church is made up of home congregations in the Kansas City metro area.
