In the world of Bible translation, Scripture engagement workers develop creative methods and materials that help people understand and integrate God's Word into their daily lives. These include videos like the "JESUS" film, audio Scripture, study guides and oral Bible stories.

In this issue, you'll discover how Scripture-based study manuals and workshops are helping millions to apply God’s Word to heartbreaking issues in their lives like war or natural disasters. And in Africa, farmers are gaining a biblical perspective on their vocation and a new sense of calling. 

You’ll also learn how mobile phones and CDs are making it possible for people in countries once considered “closed” to the gospel to read the Bible—and discover God’s gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.
