Out in Scripture
"Out in Scripture" - by the Human Rights Campaign "Out In Scripture is a collection of over 175 conversations about the Bible. With the skilled help of 100 diverse scholars and pastors, from over 11 different denominations, you will discover a fresh approach to Scripture. Here you can be honest, question and go deeper." http://www.hrc.org/resources/entry/out-in-scripture
"Hearts Unbound: Engaging Biblical texts of God’s Radical Love through Reader’s Theater" - by David Weiss "HEARTS UNBOUND invites you to explore ten of those inspiring stories of radical love and welcome. Entertaining, thought-provoking, and participatory, each session looks in-depth at the story, the historical context out of which it came, and some of the insights to be gained. Designed to be used as a small-group Bible study, HEARTS UNBOUND uses the format of Reader's Theater. But fear not... no costumes, sets, or refined acting chops needed! All you need are six to eight people around a table, reading the script, having fun, all the while learning a great deal in the process." http://www.welcomingresources.org/heartsunbound
