Welcome to the sixteenth edition of the Question of the Week! Please consider sending me your ideas for future questions :)
This one may seem a bit out of place, but I'm going for it anyway. Do you participate in reading challenges? Why or why not? Would you be interested in participating in more reading challenges? Perhaps Christian-related reading challenges. Perhaps Bible-related reading challenges. I've been contemplating having mini-challenges--nothing certain, nothing planned out yet. And I was curious if they'd be any interest. If there's not that's fine :) Do you have any ideas of what you'd want to see in a mini-reading challenge?I do participate in reading challenges. A lot. There are many reasons why I so easily succumb to temptation when it comes to reading challenges. But I'm always open for 'just one more' even if I *know* that one really means a dozen. As I'm the one asking the question, it's a bit obvious that I'm interested in having more Christian reading challenges. :) I haven't planned out anything yet, I want feedback before I do. But several things kept coming to mind. Like a Gospel-mini-challenge. Where readers would pick one gospel to read/watch/listen to three times hopefully in three different translations (and/or adaptations). Meaning you could watch The Gospel of John, listen to the gospel of John (I've got the NKJV Word of Promise New Testament that I still haven't listened to) and read the gospel of John. Or you could read the gospel (any gospel) in three different translations: for example purposes only, let's say NIV, NLT, and The Message. It's always interesting--at least to me--to compare and contrast and appreciate. Bibles can be word-for-word translation or thought-for-thought translation. (Not to mention all the in-betweens). And then there are paraphrases. That's just one idea I have. I am curious in reading your ideas and if seeing if there is any interest.
