What is the E100 Challenge?

The E100 Bible Reading Challenge is an effective Bible reading plan built around 100 carefully selected short Bible passages - 50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament. It guides participants through the 100 passages over a 20 week period and enables them to see the big picture of God's Word and in the process develop a daily Bible reading habit.

The Bible passages are usually one to two chapters in length and can easily be read in 10 minutes or less. Based on the book Essential 100, the Challenge takes a reader through all of the major types of biblical writing including Historical books, Poetry and Wisdom Literature, the Prophets, the Gospels, Acts, the Epistles and Revelation. The Bible passages in the challenge are organised into 20 sets of five readings each.

The program is not dated and can be started at any time during the year. It's designed to be flexible, too; it fits any time schedule and works with any Bible translation.

On completion of the Challenge, participants are encouraged to continue to spend time with God every day and strengthen their personal relationship with Him.

You can start simply by obtaining a copy of the companion book, Essential 100, which contains helpful commentary on each reading. You might also like to use the convenient "track your progress" punch out card on the Reading Planner to keep you on track as you take the Challenge. Opt to go deeper for personal and small group study by answering the thought provoking questions found in the Group Discussion Guide. For those who are always on the go, the E00 Challenge App for mobile devices might be more convenient. You will find all these resources here.

Just find the way that works for you and commit to taking the challenge of 100 Bible readings in 100 days and expect to be transformed by God through the power of His Word.

Imagine the impact of having your entire church, Sunday school or home group network reading and discussing as they journey through the Bible... together. There are lots of ways the E100 Bible Reading Challenge can help people discover the big picture of God's Word for themselves.
