About Roots guides

Roots guides help Christian development organisations in their work. Each guide focuses on a topic relevant to development work such as project cycle management or advocacy. Many case studies from Tearfund partner organisations are included. Reflection questions are used throughout the books to help readers relate the information to their own situation. The books also contain Bible studies to help Christian organisations carry out their work according to biblical values.

Ways Roots guides can be used

  • as the basis for running training workshops – many of the books contain suggested workshop timetables
  • by individuals wanting to increase their own knowledge
  • as discussion-based learning for a group of staff members during regular meetings
  • in colleges and universities
