Max Mclean on how to read scripture aloud in a church service, and how to start a Bible reading ministry in a church.
  rbclibrary | Jul 1, 2013 |
NCLA Review - Max McLean is a professional reader and dramatic presenter of Scripture on stage and radio. You may be familiar with his narration of The Listener’s Bible, his Listen to the Bible radio program, and his readings of Mark’s Gospel, Genesis, and The Screwtape Letters recorded on DVD. McLean observes that during worship, reading of Scripture is not engaging when read by untrained, ungifted readers. Passionate reading of Scripture during worship prepares the congregation to engage with the message of the sermon. For this reason, he paired up with Rev. Dr. Warren Bird to write an outstanding how-to guide for selecting gifted speakers and training them to read Scripture aloud and elevate God’s spoken Word to a higher level. A DVD located inside the back cover includes: examples of readers reading Scripture, discussions of how to choose people for a Scripture Reading Team, explanation of how to prepare for readings, three readings and six dramatic presentations of Scripture by Max McLean.
