The Invisible Bestseller

If the Bible truly has gone missing in America, Kenneth Briggs knows how and where to look for it. Briggs, the author of The Invisible Bestseller: Searching for the Bible in America, has enjoyed a long and venerable career as a journalist, editor, and journalism instructor at places like Newsday, the New York Times, and Columbia University. His religion reporting and subsequent books on religion in America led to broad travel and deep exploration of communities and issues of faith in America.

Kenneth A. Briggs

In The Invisible Bestseller, Briggs offers a journalistic but still personal inquiry into the disappearance of the Bible from daily American life. How can a book—one that's found in courthouses, libraries, and millions of households across the land—be everywhere and nowhere at the same time? The quest to answer that questions takes Briggs on a two-year cross-country journey.

Briggs lives in eastern Pennsylvania, where he has taught journalism and religion at Lehigh University and Lafayette College. He worked for many years as religion writer for Newsday and the religion editor for the New York Times, and his previous books include The Power of Forgiveness and Double Crossed: Uncovering the Catholic Church's Betrayal of American Nuns.
