Comment from a user: "I am loving doing the 52 week challenge! I'm into week 4 now. I love reading from a different section of the Bible every day – and it is incredible how one gets such a sense of the one-ness of Scripture as you do so. Portions or verses are quoted from all over – they all validate each other. I really appreciate the bookmarks – it makes it so much easier! Well done – it is really a wonderful way to do it – rather than feeling like you are ploughing through one book at a time – and some of the OT books, like Isaiah and Jeremiah can really get a bit heavy!"
