CAN YOU HELP US IMPROVE BIBLE LITERACY?

Over the past four years a group of leading New Testament scholars has been developing Underground Story, a new translation of the New Testament for reading ages 9-13 years. The aim of the project is to counter biblical illiteracy, so that God's word becomes known to young people from all backgrounds, communicated in a way which they can understand and relate to. This project provides a unique opportunity for you to be part of a great national endeavour to raise the profile of the Bible in the eyes of kids and the role of RE in the school curriculum.

To date the project has operated through the generous donation of time and resources by the team of scholars and others. Many will continue to donate time and energy but, to complete the development project, we urgently need to raise £15,000 to cover the cost of printing and delivering copies of the Gospels to 600 schools where they can be tested and feedback from young people and their teachers obtained. St John's College Durham is leading the project and urgently needs donations from Christians who would like to be part of this unique opportunity — whatever you can give would be much appreciated.

You may donate online or send a cheque to St John's College Durham DH1 3RJ (Charity number 1141701) marking your cheque "St John's College (Underground Story Account)". If you wish to gift aid your donation, please send with your cheque your full name, address and confirmation that you are a UK taxpayer.
