Listening to the translated Scriptures: a review of today’s digital audio players
Author: Richard Margetts (2019)

Fourth Edition – Revised for 2019

Scripture Engagement Guide

The Scripture Engagement Guide (SE Guide for short) is a web-based tool for local communities to explore a variety of topics to consider their needs, then find the resources to help them get there.

We exist so that local communities everywhere are engaging with Scripture in transformative ways.

This is more about the process than the products that may be created or utilized along the way. The journey through the site can be expressed in four general stages:
