There is a wealth of resources available to the student, teacher, researcher and practitioner of Bible and Mission.

In this top level resource page we highlight a number of key websites including blogs, e-journals and network/organisation websites. The criteria for inclusion is that they engage in some way with mission in the Bible and/or the Bible in mission. Leave a comment if there’s anything missing. It’s worth saying that the material linked to from this site does not necessarily reflect the views of the Centre for the Study of Bible and Mission, or of Redcliffe College.

The four sub-pages list other resources under four categories.

Bible and Mission Church Resources In this section you will find links to resources for local churches that help people to engage with the Bible and mission.

Bible and Mission books and articles is a bibliographical listing for those wanting to read more about the missional nature of the Bible, mission in the Bible, and the Bible in mission. In particular, we have tried to provide as full as possible a listing of material on missional hermeneutics, though there is plenty on other aspects of Bible and Mission as well.

Bible and Mission media is a portal to sermons, lectures and other multimedia presentations on mission in the Bible and the Bible in mission. Some were created by ourselves but many will just be things we’ve found on the web that we think might be interesting or useful to you.

Bible and Orality reflects our commitment to encouraging awareness of, and scholarly and practical engagement with this crucial aspect of contemporary missional engagement with the Bible. It includes websites, journals, books and other media relating to the communication of the Bible in oral contexts.

  1. Hi, Tim,

    I think you and others interested in a missional hermeneutic might be interested in this conference at Calvin Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids. It is on ‘A Missional Reading of Scripture’ with Chris Wright, NT Wright, Darrell Guder, and me as keynote speakers. There are about nine different workshops as well given by various scholars (George Hunsberger, John Franke, Scot Sherman and others) and pastors on a missional hermeneutic. You can find out more information here:

    I don’t have your email, Tim, or I’d send a poster.
