It's not enough to translate the Bible; it's not enough to distribute the Bible. Our desire is to see real Scripture Engagement: people encountering God's Word in life-changing ways. On this site you'll find news, events and resources for those encouraging Scripture use and Bible engagement around the world.
Strategy and Methods, Multi-Cultural Teamwork
Sponsor: Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics (GIAL)
The Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics (GIAL) is now offering 2 online courses this Fall that are particularly useful to Scripture Engagement workers.
- Scripture Engagement Strategy and Methods will enable you to analyze a situation anywhere in the world and see what methods are more and less useful for that place. It uses the “Eight Conditions” model but goes well beyond what is in the article. Will run Aug-17 through Dec 13, 2012.
- Multi-Cultural Teamwork will enable you to work closely together with people from other countries for prolonged periods. Will run Sept 17 through Dec 13, 2012.
These are 3-credit graduate level courses, but open to upper level undergraduates. To learn more, including the new easy way to apply online, go to http://www.gial.edu/academics/gialonline-overview [more...]

How a community can love and care for people affected by AIDS
Learner's Book and Facilitator's Manual
A story-based, Biblical approach to AIDS prevention and care
Worldwide there are nearly 33 million people infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Many of those do not know they are infected with HIV and will eventually die of AIDS. Kande’s Story is a true-to-life story based on accounts told by an African pastor about children in his community. Kande is a 12 year old African girl whose father and then mother die of AIDS. She and her five siblings are left orphans and must fend for themselves. The story tells of the many problems and dangers they face just trying to live. It tells how people in their community, especially people from the local church, helped them in their time of need. They also learn that by following God’s instructions for living, they can avoid getting AIDS themselves or spreading it to others. They learn how to love and care for those affected by the disease, working for justice for widows and orphans. [more...]
An independent audio player review
Author: Richard Margetts
The Story Teller from MegaVoice is the most affordable of all the pocket-sized solar-powered audio players available at the moment. It’s also one of the most lightest and simple to use, with a single 4-way button. Sound quality is excellent as is battery life, and the volume is impressive for a pocket-sized player. Files can be copied onto it using a proprietary USB cable and MegaVoice software.
As its name indicates, the Story Teller is ideal for containing audio stories or any other Scripture content when you have less than 10 hours to distribute. It is not designed for whole New Testaments or situations where you want to arrange audio files in hierarchies of books and chapters.
