Let Scripture Speak for Itself by Don Fleming. This book gives guidance and practical examples of how to explain a Bible passage without boring people with technical discussions and how to assimilate and pass on the Bible’s message faithfully and without introducing one’s own personal views. Let Scripture Speak is a fundamental training resource for those studying the Bible with a view to Christian service.
Handbook for the Sending Church – published by the Kairos Agency in collaboration with the Union of Brethren Churches. This handbook deals with subjects such as the Biblical basis for sending out missionaries, how to encourage a missionary vision within the local church, considerations regarding the sending of missionaries, the responsibilities of a local church towards its missionaries before they leave for the mission field, while they are there (emotional, financial and logistical support) and when they return home, etc. The handbook also contains two questionnaires, one for use by the elders of the church when interviewing missionary candidates and one for the candidate. The price of the handbook is 5 lei and it may be ordered by e-mail: [email protected]
Persecuted but not Forsaken – This guide is an encouragement to persevere in prayer and intercession for God’s people suffering persecution. In 2008 millions of Christians experienced persecution because of their faith in Christ. This prayer guide focuses on 50 countries in which persecution is harshest and lists them in order of the severity of persecution. Some believers face violence and death, while others are unjustly imprisoned and/or are not allowed to worship or to share their faith with others. They are discriminated against in the education system and when looking for work. All these facts should have the effect of encouraging us to pray and thus support our brothers and sisters in Christ. Persecuted Christians are strengthened when they know that they have not been forgotten and abandoned by the family of God. The prayer guide and its accompanying World Watch poster (if required) may be obtained free from the Kairos Missionary Agency.
