Today on the show:

  1. The first part of an interview with Dorothy Miller, Director of The God's Story Project
  2. Sample audio clip from a cool training resource: Wake up to Orality & Literacy - part of of a Seven Module audio series on the subject of Making Disciples of Oral Learners (see more detail below)

The first module (of 7) in the CD series entitled Following Jesus - Making Disciples of Primary Oral Learners, from which we played today's audio clip on Orality and Literacy, 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 first dip into this resource serves to get our feet wet. We shall revisit this material in future podcasts.

Four of the specialists - each with a key role in promoting the use of oral strategies to reach oral learners - and who can be heard on today's show are:

  • Marcus Vegh - President of Progressive Vision an international digital publishing ministry focused on producing resources for discipling nations in strategic languages of the world. He is the producer of the audio series and leads with interview questions in the quoted segment on today's episode.
  • Avery Willis - President of the International Orality Network - was on our first podcast. He has served as a missionary for 14 years in Indonesia, and is loved and known the world over for his classic book and process of discipleship entitled Master Life
  • Jim Slack is Global Evangelism and Church Growth Consultant/Analyst in the Department of Research at the International Mission Board (IMB). He has had 25 years of missionary service in the Philippines, including church planting consultation with 18 evangelical groups throughout Asia and has done doctoral research on orality and literacy.
  • Grant Lovejoy has taught on storying in more than twenty countries and has been a keynote speaker at international conferences on orality. A storying-based leadership training process that he helped develop is in use in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. He has also taught preaching and Chronological Bible Storying at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas.

We hope that you enjoy today's show and find it enriching and helpful.
