A generation in the Bible
Only half the story of the Bible is being told today. Yes, those claiming to be religious and “Bible-engaged” are declining. But there is a new wave of truth-seekers not content to hear second-hand information about God’s Word. While many see only negative statistics when it comes to faith, we believe there is a Bible revival unfolding. From 2016 until today, those using digital platforms to engage God’s Word has exploded from 200 to over 400 million people worldwide, and the numbers are growing. Imagine if the world found its 2020 vision from the Word of God. Imagine more people, in the Bible more than at any other time in history.View Stats
Awakening began with a book…
It has happened before. The story of Josiah in 2 Kings offers a blueprint for what we pray will happen in 2020. When things were at their worst, the Book of the Law was rediscovered, and the nation was changed. Change didn’t come from an eloquent speech, but simply by the public reading of Scripture. From the least to the greatest, an entire nation recommitted themselves to God on a single day. Imagine what God can do with an entire year as we commit to elevate Scripture across the nation.

Declaration: I read the Bible.
It is the inspired Word of God, and has the power to change lives. I recognize that the more I engage with Scripture, the more I encounter and know Jesus. Throughout history, the Bible has offered wisdom and hope to all who are willing to read, and apply it in context. Toward this end, I am adding my voice as one of many who are both committing personally, and calling others to engage the Bible this year more than ever before.
This campaign does not begin with a marketing launch or promo stunt. It begins in a quiet room as we willingly submit ourselves to God. Year of the Bible is inviting believers to start 2020 by fasting and praying for God’s vision for their lives.
