Engaging the Bible, Engaging Poverty

When we engage the Bible, we engage the world. When we engage the world, we engage poverty, both spiritual and physical poverty. 

The Bible's View of Poverty

Using Scripture and stories from my life, including one from Bihar, India, in this message I explain why Bible engagement is a critical part of transforming our world and what that engagement really means for each of us.

Translating and Distributing the Word

This message was recorded at Biblica's chapel in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Biblica is committed to making God's Word accessible to people around the world and helping them engage it. They translate and distribute Bibles. It is a beautiful vision. I am proud to be a friend of Biblica's. I pray that their example may inspire all of us to do more to engage the Bible and our world.

Engage the Bible. Engage poverty by alleviating it. Be empowered today.
