Like a rollercoaster, our #LentChallenge has led us up a steep climb the past three weeks. Clicking us to the top, we’re about to take a whirlwind, spiraling adventure through the remaining books of the New Testament—all of which have one thing in common: the early church.
Beginning with Acts and winding through the epistles, we are about to catch a snapshot of church history, witness the power of the Holy Spirit, and fall even more in love with God along the way.
Are you in?
I hope so.
Even if you’ve fallen a wee-bit behind, that’s okay! Keep reading. You’ve got this.

Do you ever come across a verse, passage, or parable and say to yourself:
What in the world does that mean?
I don’t understand what Jesus is saying in that passage.

Every week during the #LentChallenge, we’re asking New Testament scholar, Dr. Craig Blomberg to weigh in on your questions—even the trickiest, strangest, and most random. Check out his answers to 5 difficult Bible questions and leave yours as a comment below: Continue Reading...
We had no idea so many people would want to join us for this #LentChallenge—reading the entire New Testament in 40 days. More than 40,000 people from around the world have joined us. We’ve seen fun photos, insights, comments, blogs, and more appearing throughout the web.
But let’s be honest. It’s easy to fall behind in bible reading. I know I’ve slipped a day (or more).
But that doesn’t mean you should quit.
That doesn’t mean you should give up.
That means it’s time to buckle down and get ready because Resurrection Day, Easter, is coming!
No matter how many days you’re behind—whether 3 or 17—keep reading! Keep crossing off the boxes and diving into Scripture. I double dog dare you to continue pursuing God in his Word. Like rifling through a treasure box, gems are waiting to be uncovered. God has something big in store for you and for me during this Lenten season.
