Engage the Word, Sunday School and Discipleship Ministries International's Scripture-engagement emphasiswill begin this weekend. The 40-day emphasis lasts from September 30 to November 1. It is a partnership between the American Bible Society and Nazarene Publishing House.

Available in print, online, and via smartphone, the Engage the Word reading plan designed for individuals, families, and church groups. In addition, the 40 Scripture passages are digitally available in multiple languages through ABS.

Engage the Word was a great way read an overview of God's story in 40 days," said one user. "On Sundays our pastor would preach from a portion of Scripture we read during the week."

Research by the Center for Bible Engagement revealed that those who engage in Bible reading four or more times per week experience life much differently than those who do not regularly connect with God’s Word. 

"This program was fantastic and created wonderful dialog in Sunday School classes and small groups on Wednesday," said a Nazarene pastor.

Regular Bible engagement has a statistically proven impact on a person’s world view, attitudinal habits, behavioral choices, and ability to deal with some of life’s toughest challenges.

"The impact of this program was tremendous to me because it caused my congregation to interact with the Word in casual dialog with questions and answering times shared as we met together during the 40 days," said another Nazarene pastor. "I have seen the changes the Word made in at least 10 of my members. Praise the Lord."

Resources are available through Nazarene Publishing House and online. For more information, visit engagetheword.nazarene.org.
