Walk Thru the Bible is a ministry founded by acclaimed Bible teacher and author Bruce Wilkinson. It aims to spark enthusiasm for God’s Word through innovative methods of teaching and learning.
Walk Thru the Bible History
WTTB began when Bruce Wilkinson, a Dallas Theological Seminary student, developed an innovative method of Bible teaching for his ThM project. He used the wide variety of God-given learning methods to teach an overview of the Old Testament (OT) in a highly memorable and interactive fashion. The teaching room is turned into a map of the Middle East with participants using key words and gestures to learn the chronological story of major OT people, places and events.
In 1976, WTTB was incorporated and began its impressive growth. Our mission statement is: “Walk Thru the Bible Ministries exists to contribute to the spiritual growth of Christians worldwide through Bible teaching, tools and training.” New seminars have since been added, including video seminars.
In 2013, Walk Thru the Bible has come under the responsibility of The Bible Society of Singapore (BSS). BSS is committed to growing this ministry work by raising more Trainers and Equippers. Together, we work towards making “disciples of all the nations” (Matt 28:19-20).
