LifeWork Study Guide

This study guide is designed to help you reflect and apply what you are reading in Lifework: A Biblical Theology For What You Do Every Day. It is designed for both individual and for small group work. We recommend that you read through the study guide questions for each chapter before you read that chapter. Sometimes there are questions that need to be answered before reading begins. If you are using the study guide in a small group setting, you could set a goal of reading and processing one chapter each week. Please take time to pray and report on the action steps from the previous week’s “to do” assignment before discussing new material. The Greek mind was interested in knowing the truth. Ancient Greeks wanted to fill the mind with knowledge, but had little interest in application of what they were learning. In contrast, the Hebrew mind was interested in both knowing the truth and in doing the truth. Today many Christians are more like Greeks than Hebrews. This study guide will encourage you to be a Hebrew. Therefore, in this study guide there are two parts to each chapter. In the section marked know you will be challenged with questions that will help you reflect on what you are reading. The section marked do will challenge you to put into practice at least one thing that you have learned during that week’s study. May God richly bless you as you process the material in LifeWork.

Seed Project Planning

Developed by Bob Moffitt, Disciple Nations Alliance co-founder and President of the Harvest Foundation, seed projects are short, small, simple ministry activities. They are done by local churches, use local resources, and demonstrate God’s love to those outside the church—whether in a South America shelter home, an Asian rice paddy, a densely populated slum in Africa, or suburban America. They are small efforts, but their combined impact has enormous potential.

Biblia, Babel y Balbuceo

Los efectos de Babel continúan y no solamente entre los modernos “constructores de torres”. Los malentendidos que surgen por la naturaleza de todo idioma también confunden a la iglesia, ya sea en su trabajo misionero, en el diálogo entre culturas o en el uso de la Biblia misma. Desgraciadamente se han esparcido muchos “balbuceos” con respecto a la traducción de la Biblia. Dentro de la misma iglesia se dan luchas, a veces encarnizadas, como consecuencia de la confusión de Babel. Este trabajo, que es el resultado de un estudio de numerosos idiomas y culturas, intenta aclarar un poco esa confusión.

Bible, Babel and Babble

Babel's effects continue, and not only among modern "tower builders." Misunderstandings related to the nature of language also confuse the Church, whether in missionary work, cross-cultural dialogue or the use of the Bible itself. Sadly, there is a great deal of babble spread around concerning the essence of Bible translation. Intra-church strife, and even carnage, result from Babel's confusion. This work, drawn upon the study of numerous languages and cultures, is an attempt to dispel some of that confusion. That is why it was called Babel—because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth. (Genesis 11:9, NIV) After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. (Revelation 7:9) Lack of knowledge about the nature of language continues to trouble the Church, especially in relation to translation of the Bible. The following pages provides a foundation for that vital task. The author served with International Bible Society and is a member of Wycliff Bible Translators. He has an MA in Linguistics from the University of Texas at Arlington, a Ph.D. in Bible Translation from the Free University of the Netherlands, and has assisted in Bible translation projects in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas.

The Politics of Gentleness: Random Thoughts for a Conversation with Jean Vanier

Sept. 2006
Gentleness is usually the last thing most of us would associate with the rough and tumble world of politics. Politics, we assume, is about conflict and/or getting your interests satisfied. Gentleness is a characteristic of personal relationships having little to do with questions of power or rule. That is, of course, exactly the dichotomy I want to challenge by calling attention to the role of gentleness in L'Arche.

United We Stand

Sept. 2004
Over the last ten years there has been an explosion of mission activity in the UK. Churches, organisations, networks and individual Christians are engaging with their communities more than ever before. We are learning again the importance of seeing everything we say and do as part of our worship to God and witness for Him. With the increase of this integral and holistic approach to mission there have also come challenges. These challenges revolve around deeper issues of partnership, trust and collaboration. This report is a call to explore these things together. The challenges it raises are opportunities for the Christian community to stand together to serve those who are on the edges of our society.

Cohabitation: An Alternative to Marriage?

June 2011
The popularity of cohabitation continues to increase in the UK. Following the rapid changes of the 1960s and 1970s, in the early 1980s cohabitation overtook marriage as the most common form of first live-in relationship. Today, six out of every seven first live-in relationships is a cohabitation. The purpose of this report is to provide an accurate and up-to-date analysis of cohabitation in the UK. Such a reliable analysis is critical in developing properly informed public policy.

Hope for London

July 2003
Hope for London reports on dramatic transformation in ordinary, everyday communities in London and beyond. At the heart of these initiatives and many others are Christians committed to prayer and a practical expression of God’s love through their lives and work. Although London’s bad news makes the news, that’s not the whole picture. There are extraordinary stories of hope to be found too, in the capital and in cities around the UK. Hope for London is an introduction to what can happen when Christians pray for their neighbours and communities, and act on those prayers, to address the challenge of crime in their part of the city. Included are models from outside London which can be replicated in the capital.

Revista Imagina, Idea 5, 2004

Revista de la Alianza Evangélica Española. La idea central de IMAGINA es mover la iglesia de adentro hacia afuera para poner el mundo patas arriba. ¿Por qué las iglesias evangélicas en España han tenido un impacto tan pequeño en nuestro país? ¿Por qué después de muchos años de libertad seguimos siendo una minoría casi desconocida y con una presencia social irrelevante? ¿Hay alguna estrategia que nos pueda ayudar a salir de esta situación? ¿Qué podemos hacer cada uno de nosotros y qué podemos hacer juntos para conseguirlo? Estas son las cuestiones que intenta responder este documento originalmente producido por la Alianza Evangélica Británica, y adaptado a nuestro contexto social y eclesial por la AEE.

Bases Científicas de la Clonación y Cuestiones Éticas

Desde hace años, la ciencia-ficción consideró la idea de la clonación humana como un tópico sobre el que construir historias, generalmente tétricas. Esos relatos eran vistos como una pura fantasía, nadie consideraba posible echar marcha atrás el "reloj celular" para transformar una de nuestras células en un embrión. La obtención de Dolly sorprendió tanto a profanos como a expertos, aunque la clonación a partir de células no diferenciadas llevaba años perfeccionándose. Las primeras barreras que se pusieron para considerar la clonación humana técnicamente posible han venido derrumbándose una tras otra sólo un año después de Dolly. Clonaciones con ratonas y vacas empiezan a no ser ya noticia. A la vista de todo esto, cada vez parece más creíble que pueda ser técnicamente posible clonar seres humanos. Los cristianos hemos de ser vigilantes en el respeto hacia los seres humanos en cualquier etapa de su vida. Niños o ancianos deben ser especialmente protegidos. Dentro de ese esquema debe considerarse el desarrollo embrionario como el primer tramo de la vida (en algunos aspectos el más decisivo). Hay que evitar la torpeza de que la sensibilidad se mida con una regla: cuanto más pequeño es el ser, menos sensibilidad nos despierta. Es un error no ver en un embrión humano más que una, cuatro, treinta y dos o varios cientos de células y olvidar que allí está originándose una persona como nosotros. Debe evitarse el juego con los orígenes de la vida humana. Los cristianos hemos de mantener la consideración de la persona como ser único e irreemplazable. Cada ser humano es una creación única, que no puede ser sustituida por una fotocopia.
