Evaluating Current Events Through Scripture
ON Scripture – The Bible is a weekly multimedia resource that provides insight into key issues of the day through a unique combination of Scripture, video and biblical commentary.
Tailored to address areas of social justice issues, the initiative is utilized by various faith bodies including seminaries, churches, and small groups to explore ways to work for the common good. ON Scripture – The Bible focuses specifically on six areas of social justice: economic justice, environmental justice, civil rights, immigration, violence, and health care. Online platform partners include The Huffington Post, Day1, Sojourners, Patheos, The Text this Week, The Christian Post, and Insights into Religion.
