Introducing Bible Quest – a new online resource!
Posted by Gary O’Rourke, 01 February 2021
At Biblica we are motivated by the belief that God’s Word radically changes lives, and that everyone everywhere, deserves to experience its Truth for themselves. One aspect of that is to support new ministries who are coming up with fresh and exciting ways to encourage and enable people to read God’s Word, by allowing them to use the NIV text.
As a youth leader, Paul Lee is passionate about encouraging young people to read and engage with the Bible on a daily basis. Using his knowledge and skills working as a developer for an online advertising company, Paul set about creating Bible Quest – a free online Bible reading challenge, which takes you on a virtual journey around mainland Britain, from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
Watch this short video of Paul providing an overview of Bible Quest.When he first developed Bible Quest, Paul was initially only able to use public domain Bibles, but as he continued to develop the project further, he believed the NIV translation would be really beneficial for users because of its accessibility and familiarity. When Paul got in touch with us, we were delighted to be able to support this innovative project!
As a small–scale ministry project, I wasn’t sure of the response I would get from Biblica when I first contacted them. But I prayed about it, shared the idea with my small group, and to my surprise and delight Biblica were willing to help. Through Biblica’s support, Bible Quest is now even more accessible, and will hopefully become a valuable resource for many people.
Why not watch this short video to hear some first–hand stories of those who have used the resource, and share the project with young people and youth leaders who might benefit!
