Bible ChallengeWITH less than three weeks until the 5 January 2015 launch of Boundless – The Whole World Reading, Salvationists and friends are encouraged to sign up for weekly emails that will help to keep them on track throughout the year-long international Bible-reading challenge.

In order to read through the whole New Testament, one chapter a day, readings are scheduled from Monday to Friday. Emails will be sent out every Sunday, and will contain extra content from writers and others who are involved in the challenge. They will consider what has been studied over the previous week and will include a reminder of the readings that are scheduled for the following days. 

The first email, on Sunday 4 January, will be from General André Cox and Commissioner Silvia Cox (World President of Women's Ministries), including the encouragement to 'set aside a few minutes every day to read these life-changing words, to ponder them, to pray about what they mean in your own local, national and international context and for us as a potent Salvation Army'.

Sign up for the emails today at http://sar.my/bibleemail 

As announced previously, supporting material – including commentary and video material – will be available on www.salvationarmy.org/biblechallenge and through smartphone apps (see sar.my/bibleapp for details). Participants can follow @BoundlessBible on Twitter for daily tweets, offer insights and discussion points using the hashtag #BoundlessBible and interact online through the daily posts on the website – which has its own discussion facility – or via the IHQ Facebook Page.
