Click here for today’s feature:

Worldwide, 1 in 5 people cannot read, and while it’s difficult to measure, nearly half of the rest of the world’s population, read very poorly or choose not to read at all. So how do we reach these people with the truth of God’s word? Some ministries focus on literacy, and others are encouraging the church to consider new approaches to sharing the scriptures with non-readers.

This feature with Dr. Viggo Sogaard, Senior Professor of Communication at Fuller School of Intercultural Studies, and Theo Asare, Founder and President of TheoVision International, examine reaching these people with the Bible.

Dr. Sogaard recently wrote an article entitled: Advancing Bible Translation for Non-Reading Audiences for the Lausanne World Pulse publication.
