Sneak peak – FFTW 2020 sample pages. You can order the full copy online today!

Fresh from the Word 2020 provides 365 sets of notes, prayers and suggestions for action on biblical themes for just £9.99. The notes are written by over 50 theologians and biblical scholars; creative and inspirational writers from around the world.

Our Lenten theme this year approaches the changes in the world. The theme of ‘The responsibilities we share’ looks at our role as people of faith and committed citizens, regardless of where we live. And the theme ‘The Bible on the world stage’ coincides with the US election in 2020, inviting us to think through leadership from a Christian
perspective with figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr, Mother Theresa, and Desmond Tutu. In a week entitled ‘Fake news and the Good News’ we consider the Bible alongside social media and the wider media scene.

Beyond these themes, Fresh From The Word 2020 offers a diverse feast of creative and close readings of the Bible. Themes include coping with disappointment, ‘On the road’, the image of fire in the Bible, the Bible at the Olympics to coincide with the Tokyo games in July, approaching ‘the holy’ in Advent, and even an exploration of cosmic themes to mark NASA’s Mars rover mission, which is scheduled to blast off in July. We look at the theme of light in Epiphany and 20:20 vision in the year 2020. And we feature continuous readings of the Gospel of Matthew, the
Song of Solomon, Romans 9–16, Jeremiah, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, and 1 and 2 Peter.
