The Word for Life Video Series
Where Scripture Comes Alive
An interview series with Canadian Christian Leaders.
In today’s fast-paced world, as distractions pull us in many directions, the Bible is often the most overlooked resource that we have at our disposal. Church and ministry leaders are faced with the challenge of helping their congregations read the Bible, engage with it, find hope in it and understand it for themselves.
In this video interview series, we delve deeper into perspectives on the Bible as shared by Christian leaders and how it has influenced them over the years. We also hear about how they engage with the Bible and help their congregations and constituents stay connected to the Word to enrich their spiritual lives. Join us as Scripture comes alive!
