The Bible & Scripture Union

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path" Psalm 119:105

Scripture Union seeks to encourage people of all ages to meet God daily through the Bible and prayer so that they may come to personal faith in our Lord Jesus Christ
; grow in Christian maturity; and
 become both committed church members and servants of a world in need. To this end Scripture Union across the world has produced Bible Reading Guides for many years.


Here are THREE great ways to help you open God's Word regularly:


1. Get Started (or restarted) with E100

E100 is 100 carefully selected readings to give you the big picture of the Bible. This 100 day reading guide is an initiative to encourage your Bible reading discipline.


E100 Planner and Book
Buy the E100 Reading Planner and Companion Book. The 'Big Bible Challenge' is a beautifully illustrated version for children, or families to read together.




E100 iPhone App
Head to the App Store to get the e100 App for your iPhone to get into God's Word wherever you are.




E100 Challenge

The E100 Challenge makes it easy to be encouraged in your progress – in your church, as a group or individually. Just grab the planner and book and away you go.

IT'S FLEXIBLE: Some groups read through one section per week, doing the study in groups. It takes them 20 weeks. Other hard-core readers do one reading per day and make it a "100 day challenge." Some simply pick it up whenever they can and read the next one that they are up to.

IT'S ACHIEVABLE: Most readings are 1-2 chapters long and take around 10mins. If it takes longer or you need an extra day, no problem. There are no dates or deadlines.

IT'S GROUP-FRIENDLY: The E100 Discussion Guide is perfect for small groups.
