English is an international language of communication and there is an increased interest in learning it all around the world among people of different ages. Teaching English offers unique opportunities for spreading the good news of the salvation and for making disciples of Jesus Christ. For this purpose, "Precept Ministries Eurasia" launched "English for a New Life". project in 2000. A team of English teachers who had been studying the Bible inductively, combined their efforts and composed the teaching manual "English for a New Life - Book 1". Using chapters from Gospel of John as main texts, this manual teaches the student English phonetics, grammar and vocabulary at beginner and intermediate levels. Thus, those who study English using this manual and method have the chance to learn both English and Gospel of John.

Later, the project was launched in Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan, Nepal and other countries where other English teachers were trained to use it. The manual has been translated into Russian, Nepali and Urdu languages so far.
