A creative new experience in using the Bible launches on New Year’s Day. Scripture Union’s WordLive website goes live.
The free resource will allow online users a wide range of creative approaches to God’s Word, including audio Bible passages, video clips, worship songs and prayer activities, as well as a daily Bible reading and reflection.
Known for its wide range of printed Bible reading guides, Scripture Union has developed its first digital Bible experience to make engagement with God’s Word easier and more accessible to more people.
Chief Executive Keith Civval reckons WordLive is probably Scripture Union’s most significant development for a generation.
‘Our vision is for every 21st century Christian to be engaging enthusiastically with the Bible and growing in their faith,’ says Keith. ‘WordLive engages with today’s generation, who live a lot of their lives online, so we’re meeting them where they are.’
‘We believe WordLive will help to bring God’s Word alive across the generations,’ says Keith. ‘We’re able to give people access to whole range of multi-media ways into the Bible that we haven’t been able to do before in print.
‘The beauty of WordLive is the freedom to use a whole range of different approaches to the Bible, however, whenever and wherever you want to use them.’
