Jude: Now we’re launching a digital Bible study program where we’ll read scripture through a lens of justice, equality, diversity and inclusion.

Liana: Maybe you’re just looking for a different perspective on your faith.
Rachel: We invite you to join us. In this video series, we’ll talk about how to read the Bible on your own terms.
Jude: We’ll start with the most basic question: which Bible should I read?
Liana: In part two of this video, we’ll talk about the vast number of Bibles available to you, and what makes them different. So be sure like and subscribe!
