ICHTHUS - WINTER 2018 LWPT & METHODIST CHURCH RELAUNCH BIBLE MONTH Bible Month is being relaunched early next year by LWPT and the Methodist Church. Bible Month is an opportunity for churches and individuals to spend four-weeks engaging solely with one book of the Bible. For 2019, the renowned theologian and British New Testament scholar James D G Dunn will be writing notes on the book of Colossians. The aim of Bible Month is to improve biblical literacy and engagement within churches. The first Bible Month in 2017 focused on James, and the second, in 2018, on Jonah. Engagement with Bible Month over the last two years has spurred on the expansion of the initiative in 2018. While many churches run Bible Month in June, each church or group can choose any four weeks of the year that suits them best. The publication will be available from January 2019 to purchase. Each annual Bible Month magazine includes Bible notes, preaching ideas, small group material and ideas for children and young people. Alongside the magazine and online resources, Bible Month training days will be rolled out across UK regions. Training days give participants a deeper insight into the biblical book being studied and opportunities to delve further.
