As Bryan and Yvette continue with their summer break, we return to letting you eavesdrop on a conversation between specialists in the field of Orality as they discuss ways in which we can make disciples of primary oral learners.

The first module (of 7) in the CD series entitled Following Jesus - Making Disciples of Primary Oral Learners, can be found online at a specially reduced price here. A world class team of eight specialists in communicating Biblical truth to primary oral learners (70% of the world's population!) came together in round table discussion to explore this subject in depth. This is the introduction to the series and as promised we are revisiting this material, some of which was touched on during podcasts in our first year of existence.
