UN Millenium Goals - a Bible Perspective
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has written one of a new series of Bible studies produced by Christian Aid to inspire, inform and challenge churches and their members.
The ‘Working Together’ series of Bible studies provides individuals and church groups with an opportunity to discuss the topics of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from the perspective of faith.
As well as Dr Williams, there are studies by people who write from their faith experience, including Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi, the Rev Dr Ed Newell, the Rev Dr Sabina Alkire, Fran Beckett, Bishop Sebastião Armando Gameleira Soares, The Very Rev Vivienne Faull, Bishop Alastair Redfern, the Rev Kathy Galloway, the Rev Graham Sparkes and Janet Morley.
In the year marking the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible, the Archbishop of Canterbury has provided the first of the studies, reflecting on the Bible in the life of the Church today.
Author Janet Morley has written the final study in which she reminds us that the teaching of Jesus has a very practical application for our lives.
The other contributors each take one of the MDGs and provide us with a biblical framework in which to consider them.
The studies are available as a free PDF - click on the source to download
