Learn the Bible (in a YEAR!)

Bibles For The World launches new initiative to promote Bible knowledge.

“People who READ the Bible have a greater appreciation of the power of God’s Word to transform lives overseas,” says John Pudaite, president of Bibles For The World.  While the ministry focuses the vast majority of its activity across regions of the world where God’s Word is scarce, Pudaite is concerned about the growing level of Bible illiteracy in the United States.

“Because of our focus on the power of God’s Word to transform lives we have a unique opportunity to help foster a new appreciation for the Bible — and to enlist more people in making God’s Word known to unreached peoples.”

Dr. Shane Houle, author of Learn the Bible in a Year

LBYBook3DBibles For The World is introducing a new book — Learn the Bible in a YEAR — to encourage people across the USA with the message that God’s Word transforms lives.  It’s a collaboration with the book’s author, Dr. Shane W. Houle, whose desire it is that everyone, everywhere should be able to read and understand the most important book ever published.

“When Philip met the Ethiopian gentleman riding in his chariot and reading the prophet Isaiah, he asked, ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’” notes Houle.  “‘How can I,’ the man answered, ‘unless someone explains it to me?’  That’s the premise for this book.  I wanted people to be able to easily understand God’s story from beginning to end.  And I’m delighted that Bibles For The World wants to make the book available to people, not only in the USA, but also in translations around the globe!”

‘We’ve actually launched a series of radio programs based upon the book,” Pudaite notes.  “A new program each day for 365 days walks listeners through the Bible and offers the book to those willing to help provide God’s Word around the world.  This is not just another Bible reading plan…rather it is a Bible learning plan.”  The daily 2-minute radio programs are currently airing on stations across the country and highlight a lesson from Scripture for each day.  You can listen to a sample by clicking here:

 

 

As a way for people to see how Learn the Bible in a YEAR can improve Bible knowledge, Bibles For The World is offering a free sampling of the first 30 lessons.  You can learn more here about this unique program:

Thanks for the Gift of LIGHT!

Response to the need for “gifts of light” in India was overwhelming…  Partner parents and other donors understood the need for solar lanterns to help students in India have light at night for study.  The accompanying photos demonstrate what a difference these simple solar lamps are making already for
the thousands of students enrolled in Bibles For The World’s 30+ Christian schools across northeast India.

THANK YOU to all who participated in this special campaign to provide these most practical Christmas gifts to children and their families.  Also receiving the special gifts were all school staff and administrators, students and staff at Trinity College & Seminary, and the staff at Sielmat Christian Hospital.

Day for the Unreached – May 20, 2018

Pentecost Sunday is the International Day for the Unreached

IDU_LogoBibles For The World is once again part of an alliance of globally focused ministries that is promoting May 20, 2018 as the International Day for the Unreached (IDU).  The intent of IDU is to inform, inspire and mobilize Christians to help reach out to more than 2 billion people around the world who have yet to hear the gospel.

The annual observance is sponsored by the Alliance for the Unreached, a group that includes Reach Beyond, Bibles For The World, Operation Mobilization, Missio Nexus, Mission Network News, Partners InternationalWorld Mission and ZimZam Global.

“Bibles For The World is happy to be involved in calling attention to the billions of people around the globe in desperate need of the good news of Jesus, but who have never heard His name,” said John Pudaite, president and CEO of Bibles For The World.

Each year the Day for the Unreached launches a variety of efforts to raise awareness.  Many major media networks and stations around the country promote the event for weeks leading up to Pentecost Sunday. Pastors around the country are urged to preach sermons on the topic, while small groups focus on Jesus’ command to go to the nations. Individuals have the opportunity to join a 30-day prayer movement, interceding for the salvation of the unreached.

“Last year, we participated in a Facebook broadcast of a 60-minute special program that featured leaders of the Alliance ministries and a special message by author and missions leader David Platt,” Pudaite noted. “Recording artist Phil Stacey was a guest host and provided a mini concert that was really challenging to those who saw the program.”  That program was recorded and is available on Youtube.  Click here to watch Day for the Unreached 2017.

If you’d like to learn more about the plight of unreached peoples or how to get involved, you can download a free Great Commission Action Guide from the website, DayForTheUnreached.org. An abundance of other resources are available at the site, including bulletin inserts, sermon outlines, promotional posters, web banners, videos and radio spots.
