What would it look like if your family traded just 30 minutes of TV time per day for study of the Bible? Find out today with the New Testament Challenge.
Like any good bible study, this one can be easily adapted in the hands of more experienced bible readers. In fact, after going through it yourself it could make a simple source or outline for a group study, with many of the questions ideal for initiating discussions. Those who are always looking for a store of lesson outlines or thought-provoking prompts will find plenty to work with. Orr's book captures something basic to the Christian life: following Christ is a challenge; studying his Word is a challenge; persevering and trusting him is a challenge. But the challenge is never greater than the reward, and with this book you can find both.
I love that the New Testament Challenge isn’t full of fluff like so many studies written for moms. As busy moms read the assigned Scripture each day (4-5 chapters), they’ll be challenged to dig into the text and apply the truths they find there to their every day lives. Each week there is also a selection of verses to work on memorizing – ones that will inform your heart and mind, encouraging you in your walk with Christ.
I decided to take Chuck Orr's New Testament Challenge as a change of pace from my Read the Bible in a Year plans. The study covers the entire New Testament in 10 weeks through daily readings followed by a few questions. Even with a busy schedule I found the days' readings to be quite manageable, but I still appreciated the built in day off each week to catch up on reading or just life. The discussion questions were well thought out and inspired reflection and a more thorough understanding than simply racing to check off a day's reading goal. The very first week I discovered a fact I'd missed even though I'd read that passage many times before. The New Testament Challenge is easy to read, suitable for students as well as adults, and adaptable to either personal or group settings. This plan will be a valuable tool for exploring and studying the New Testament. I encourage YOU to take the Challenge, too.
