It’s the time of year for New Year’s resolutions. Instead of only opening a new gym membership or adding books to one’s reading lists, many people are opting for another challenge in 2020—memorizing verses and books of the Bible. Many Christian leaders, such as Pope Francis, Ravi Zacharias and Francis Chan have shown their support for the movement that started the hashtag #YearoftheBible.
Nick Hall started the movement in hopes to make 2020 the year when more people read and understand the Bible. “We want people to love the Bible and desire for the Bible to get to other languages,” Hall said. “I really see our relationship with the Bible as the one thing that changes everything.”
