The spiritual discipline of journalling has become increasingly popular in recent years and this book shows how it can fruitfully overlap with creative writing to provide an original way of engaging with the Bible. 'Bible study' is usually taken to mean 'reading and discussing' - but writing offers a different way of interacting with the text, generating new insights and application even from the most familiar of passages. Journalling the Bible offers 40 writing/journalling exercises that have been tested in workshops around the country, providing an imaginative resource for individual and group work and a refreshingly different way to become better acquainted with scripture.More info Add to basket
