How can we balance work and life in the 24-7 world in which we live? What does the Bible have to say about leadership? And can we learn from this ancient book about communicating in the 21st century? These are just a few of the themes in Fresh from the Word this year - alongside looking at a community of care, remembering with God, and the Creative Spirit. We journey through Holy Week with the Psalms and with the Gospel of John in Advent. Continuous readings from the Bible include weeks on Proverbs, Hosea, Colossians, Hebrews and the Gospel of Mark. 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, Fresh From the Word offers a set of notes, prayers and suggestions for further thought for every day of the year.
