Fresh From the Word: the Bible for a Change enables you to grow in your knowledge and appreciation of the Bible through the perspectives of 50 international writers, providing you with inspiration for your daily walk with God.

Fresh from the Word is suitable for those who are ready to start their daily engagement with the Bible as well as those who would welcome a contemporary reflection on the familiar biblical stories and messages. This fresh approach to Bible reading is aimed at new readers of the Bible from across the Church, as well as anyone seeking a faithful, creative and challenging conversation with the Bible every day of the year.

Our 50 writers have been drawn from a wide variety of contexts around the world, including the Caribbean, Africa, India, Europe and the United States. Top theologians and biblical scholars, creative writers from around the world, cutting-edge church leaders, activists for peace and justice contribute notes, prayers and suggestions for action on biblical themes for every day of the year. With a foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Fresh From the Word is for those who want to engage with a community of Christians from different cultures building a relationship with one God.

Themes for 2014 range from readings in the Gospel of Matthew to human foolishness and the foolishness of God; the greening Holy Spirit; war and peace - to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War; and God in translation.
