The History of Walk Thru the Bible
OUR STORY BEGINS WTB Video
A young seminary student named Bruce Wilkinson realized that few people knew the whole Bible with glassesstory of the Bible and that there weren’t many ways to teach it effectively. So, as part of his master’s thesis, he created the Walk Thru the Old Testament live event to teach the story of the Old Testament in only one day. As he taught in local churches and schools, he realized the program’s impact—people got excited about their “aha” moments, when they suddenly saw the big picture of the Bible. By seeing God’s story, they understood how they fit into it. They developed a lifelong passion for God’s Word.
PUTTING IT IN PRINT
Today, we publish five devotional magazines and a wide variety of small group courses and topical studies. Available in books, workbooks, small group studies, DVDs, and CDs, there is something for everyone. Live events and small group studies like A Biblical Portrait of Marriage, Solving the People Puzzle, Raise Up a Child, and The 7 Laws of the Learner have helped people around the world apply biblical principles to all areas of their lives in a realistic, relevant, life-changing way.
Much of our story involves what we have done, but where we have done it is just as much a part of who we are. Originally, we worked throughout the Southeastern part of the United States. The impact expanded to include the whole of the United States, then the United Kingdom, then India, then Ukraine, then . . . well, it just kept going.
As Walk Thru the Bible grew, we began partnering with global leaders. Under the leadership of Chip Ingram, who succeeded Bruce, and Phil Tuttle, our current President, we’ve expanded to a network of 15 regional directors who are helping people live God’s Word in over 100 countries. From business leaders in Singapore to pastors in Ghana to high school students in Paraguay, our leaders are working each day to help people fall in love with God and His Word and find their place in His story.
