Fresh From the Word 2019 : The Bible for Change Paperback / softback

Part of the Fresh from the Word series

Description

The pace of life is unrelenting, and even the church can feel driven and rushed.

This year, consider life in the `modern' desert - a place of stillness, waiting, and hoping - which we will explore this year in Lent with our unique blend of writers from around the world.

Apart from the desert, you are invited to take the Bible with you to the movies as we explore biblical themes in recent films. Music in the Bible, cosmic waters as a biblical theme, sacred space, gossip, and familiar quotes from the Bible all feature as topics for lively reflection.

We round off the year with a consideration of `Plan B' -- when life doesn't go as planned -- and Christmas with the prophets.

This year's edition features Luke as our gospel for the year, with continuous readings from Psalms, Daniel, Deuteronomy, and other books. Fresh From the Word: the Bible for a change will inspire your reading of the Bible in a changing world.

Bringing together theologians, scholars, creative writers, church leaders, and activists from around the world, it offers notes, prayers, and further thought suggestions for every day of the year.
