Be careful - this is powerful

'80% of the work to bring Brazil from a dictatorship to a democracy was founded on the Bible' Paulo Ueti (Anglican Alliance)

So if we read the Bible well it can bring life. But are we tackling some of the most sensitive subjects?  In a recent report from Peru (Within Four Walls) 7 out of 10 evangelical adults say that they have suffered, at least once in the last three years, some form of domestic violence.  That's shocking and needs to change.

How can change happen?  Part of the answer, according to Paulo, is training ordinary people to engage with what the Bible really says about men and women, as 'popular Bible scholars'.

If you want to find out more about addressing gender based violence you may want to see Restored or Anglican Alliance
