A practical question must follow Jesus’ call for his disciples to “abide in my word”: how can that calling be applied in ministries today? In this workshop the speaker will present bold Bible reading— reading the Bible through in as few as six to sixteen weeks—as a means to nurture the sort of spiritual fruit Jesus invites and expects (John 15). The speaker will approach the Bible as a relational resource, meant to bring about “faith working through love” in readers. By exposing volunteer readers to the narrative of God’s love, jealousy, delights, and distastes, in a more concentrated and natural manner, the Bible comes to life more than ever before. The benefits of mentoring young believers by partnership read-throughs will be considered as well. – See more quality video presentations at Focal Forum for Christian Leaders
