The Bible Cause

John Fea

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the American Bible Society (ABS) presidency of Eugene Habecker and his attempt to do three things at the ABS: establish a new CEO organizational mode that completely changed the way the ABS operated and placed a single person at the head of the organization, move the ABS toward a mission of scriptural engagement which meant that teaching people how to “use” the Bible would replace distribution of the Bible as its highest priority, and move the board and the Society as a whole in a more evangelical direction by challenging the mainline and liberal Protestants who had dominated its membership for much of the twentieth century.
