A Journey with Luke: The 50 Day Bible Challenge
Join a journey with Luke this Advent!
A masterful storyteller with the compassion of a physician, Luke paints a picture of Jesus as healer, full of mercy, forgiveness, and love. The Gospel of Luke features the lovely Magnificat, Mary’s love song to God, and the nativity story heard in Christmas pageants around the world. Luke includes three parables not heard in any other gospel: the prodigal son, the good Samaritan, and the unjust judge. Luke, also believed to be the author of the book of Acts, emphasizes prayer as central to the life of faith.
Join the journey with Luke with fifty days of scripture readings, meditations, and prayers written by dynamic spiritual leaders from around the world. A Journey with Luke is part of a series of fifty-day Bible studies and is an extension of The Bible Challenge, a global initiative to encourage daily engagement with the Word of God.
Endorsement from Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop Elect of the Episcopal Church: “The Bible Challenge is a challenge worth taking.”

This past Easter Day we gave out 500 copies of our new The Journey through Matthew: A 50-Day Bible Challenge to each household that joined us for worship. It was extremely well-received. For us, it was another important step in helping our church become much more biblically literate and helping our members to develop a daily spiritual practice of engaging the Bible. Nothing is so transforming for the Christian soul.
I encourage you and your church, cathedral, school or diocese to participate in the 50-Day Bible Challenge. You can start at any time of the year that you desire. The Journey with Matthew contains Matthew’s Gospel divided into 50 segments. I invited 24 colleagues from across the United States and around the world to write meditations, questions and prayers to accompany each passage. They did a great job. You can purchase copies for $15 directly from Forward Movement. We hope you enjoy it.
Our goal is to help our individuals, churches, schools, cathedrals and dioceses engage God’s Word each day. There is nothing that builds a stronger Christian than a daily conversation with the Holy One that occurs as we prayerfully engage Scripture.
With Easter blessings for your loved ones and you,
