INTERNATIONAL ECUMENICAL PROGRAM TO BECOME BIBLIODRAMA LEADERS (2009-2011)

 

Bibliodrama is a method of Bible cognition and awareness. Its core is Bible reading in groups. The centre of attention in bibliodrama is the place where a person’s life and a text of the Holly Scripture meet. Bibliodrama creates opportunity for people to better know the text of the Holly Scripture as well as the God acting in the text and person’s relation with God in his/her personal journey of life and faith. The aim of bibliodrama is not to stage the texts of the Bible but to empathize the characters of the Holly Scripture, their situations, and their encountering Jesus.

 

Duration of the project: from 17 August 2009 until 24 February 2011.
