The change-maker bible study series produced by SU and Tear explores God’s call to justice and peace, exploring issues of hunger, war, discipleship, poverty and injustice in the bible and asking how we, as christians can choose to respond.
I’ve found this series to be highly under-rated, the issues and the biblical and prayerful reflection that each of the guides offer are of high quality and allow groups to converse about world issues in a safe way.
The study themes are: – Awake to the World – Seeing and Praying – Eyes Wide Open – Seeing Faith at Work Prophetic, challenging, educational and live changing these studies will challenge your young people to pray and reflect on what it means to be a Christian in a global way.
But don’t trust me, here’s what others have said:
Rev Time Costello, (Formerly President of Baptist Union of Australia): “ChangeMakers! is an excellent and prophetic series of studies, tackling difficult questions from life, society and global realities. It allows the Bible to challenge our values and speak powerfully to our lifestyles. Indeed, it induces change! I look forward to using this material extensively in groups.”
Margaret Smith, Member of the Board of Tearfund (UK): “Do not embark on these studies if you wish your life to remain the same. You will meet the world’s poor. You will read God’s Word to those of use who are rich and discover how the two, rich and poor, can impact upon each other. I thoroughly recommend you take the risk!”
These studies were compiled by Steve Bradbury and Allan Harkness. – Steve Bradbury is the National Director of TEAR Australia. – Allan Harkness is currently lecturing at Trinity Theological College in Singapore.
