It was back in 1941 that Dr. J. Vernon McGee was persuaded to begin a Sunday radio broadcast called The Open Bible Hour on a single station. That little program aimed at "Mr. Average American" was the foundation stone for what would eventually become Thru the Bible Radio.
Dr. McGee was an active participant in this radio ministry for 47 exciting years. When his health began to fail, plans were made in advance to decide how the program would continue in the event of his homegoing. The message would remain the same and the "voice" of Thru the Bible Radio would continue to be Dr. McGee, through the use of the taped 5-year program.
After our Savior called Dr. McGee home in 1988, the program's reach continued to grow. Today, Thru the Bible is a worldwide ministry airing on over 800 stations in the U.S. and Canada, and heard in more than 100 languages around the world. Our mission is simple and the same one Dr. McGee himself embraced: To take the whole Word to the whole world.
The continued success of this ministry, even after the death of its founder, gives testimony to God's abundant blessings.
