Reading the Bible with the Global Church

Redcliffe College Lecture in Bible and Mission 2011We all come to the Bible with our own perspectives, insights and blind spots, which is why reading it with others is vital. But often the groups we are part of come from similar cultural backgrounds. Are there things we could be missing?
Imagine being part of a Bible Study group made up of believers from Britain, Bangladesh, Brazil, Burkina Faso and Bulgaria. How might this open our eyes to read God’s Word afresh?

The Redcliffe Lecture on Bible and Mission 2011: Reading the Bible with the Global Church will take place on Wednesday 30 March from 7.00pm to 9.00pm and will be delivered by Eddie Arthur, Executive Director of Wycliffe Bible Translators who will explore what it means to read the Bible alongside believers around the world. There will also be discussion groups led by church leaders to unpack what this might look like in a local congregation context.
