A tool which churches perceive to be of value in furthering their goals
Author: Keith Benn

What excites us most is that people who have never before led a Bible study are now having regular studies in their homes.

This article relates how Bible study cassettes on Genesis 1-11 and James have had a big impact on the Central Bontoc people of the Philippines. It outlines the format of the Bible studies and the ways they have been used both within churches and in evangelism, and how they support the development of literacy.

Benn suggests five reasons for their success: variety in the way they were recorded, the use of indigenous music, the churches’ involvement in production, the thematic unity of Scriptures, questions and hymns and finally the felt need in the churches for Bible studies.
