Christmas Break Bible Reading Challenge

Two weeks. 85 chapters a day. One extraordinary Bible reading challenge.

That's right, today's the kick-off for Generation Joshua's annual Christmas Break Bible reading challenge. The challenge is a student-organized, student-led project that was organized online via our official Generation Joshua forums. Since its inception in 2008, a number of students have seized this opportunity to keep Christ as the center of the Christmas season.

The students have kept a blog over the past several years. Head on over there to take a look at past stories and interviews of students who have completed the challenge.

From Brianna:
What did you find most profitable about Christmas Bible Reading? 
For one, it keeps your mind where it should be around Christmas: on Christ. And it was a great way to just see the Bible as a whole, not just as a chapter here, or a verse there.  You notice things you never noticed before when you read it all the way through in a short period of time.
From Amy:
What would you tell people looking into doing this?
Reading the Bible through is something you will never forget or regret. Its an experience that will change your life, simply because God is life-changing. You will never be able to look at it the same way!
So go ahead and take the challenge! Head on over to the Generation Joshua forums (if you're a member) and check out the Bible reading challenge thread.
