Miner's Bible tackles common mining issues

| Share

The Miner's Bible is a new resource tool created specifically for Australian miners.

Mark Hemans, a network pastor with the Out of the Pit support network, says the pocket-sized Miner's Bible features a special 20-page front colour section containing encouraging stories of miners whose lives have been changed by God, and Biblical prayers dealing with common mining issues such as loneliness, depression, family/marriage problems, and safety concerns.

"As you can see in this photo, no matter what their background, miners are keen to have their own copy of the Miner's Bible," Mark says.

"In its pages they find the strength to face the challenges of tough mining life."

The easy-to-read, contemporary English version Miner's Bible is published by the Bible Society with the help of Out of the Pit.
