The Forum of Bible Agencies has launched a new website today called Scripture Engagement: Encountering God’s Word in Life Changing Ways. The content and focus of the site is primarily on resources produced by and for field Bible translators working in minority languages. This means that most of the resources available on the site can not be found anywhere else – this makes it a very attractive place to bookmark. As a brand new site, it hasn’t quite developed its own niche yet and I expect that over the next few months it will start to sharpen up and have a more defined focus. I would also like to see a much more extensive links section that ties it in to the wider online Bible and mission community.
The site promises regular updates and you can subscribe to these by email, which will be useful for those who live in areas with limited internet connectivity. You can also get updates via an RSS feed, but there is no Twitter or Facebook group associated with it yet. All in all, this is one to watch.
