Interactive Bible reading event coming to downtown Birmingham

BIRMINGHAM (TAB) — A different kind of Bible reading event is coming to Birmingham in November. On Nov. 5 the Birmingham-based audio Bible ministry Your Working Copy Inc. will host The Nehemiah (812) Project.

For the project, the entire Book of Revelation will be read aloud by participants of all ages. The idea is to help people interact with Scripture like the ancient church did, where crowds gathered to hear scribes read before them.

Susan Bates, the primary narrator for Your Working Copy, said, “I believe that Your Working Copy and The Nehemiah [812] Project are so important to us today because it is no longer enough to attend church, read a daily devotional and engage in light Bible study.

“The project is an idea whose time has come … again.”

The event will take place at St. John African Methodist Episcopal Church, Birmingham, and will begin at 1:30 p.m. It also will be live streamed at
