W 177 How to Read the Bible in Church

Christians believe that the Bible is the word of God - yet often the way we approach it in church does not reflect that high importance. The readings may sound boring, be inaudible, or be read without expression or any understanding of the context of a passage.

This 'how to' booklet looks at the whole range of 'why's and 'how's of reading the Bible in church. It offers an exciting range of creative approaches - all tried and tested - as well as careful training on the basics of reading well. It will be of interest to anyone concerned that Scripture should be 'alive and active' for those listening.
