Reading the Bible
To look at the whole of the Bible as a story of God’s mission to save and renew the goodness of Creation. To give you some tools to help identify and understand the different styles and purposes for writing that are contained within scripture. Then to explore how you might apply what you’ve learnt about the Bible to your own understanding of the Christian faith and how you communicate that faith to others through your pioneering. This brings a new awareness of the importance of language and story as carriers and shapers of culture, such that you will use the Bible to explore Christian spirituality more imaginatively with those currently outside the orbit of traditional church.
