Engage exists to help you plug into your Bible. Through Engage's pages we want to plunge into God's awesome word: discovering who God is and what He's like; seeing what God's done for us through Jesus; and exploring practical ways of living for Him. The Bible is packed with amazing stories and life-changing teaching. It's time to dive into the Bible and see God change our lives...
'In more than twenty years of youth ministry, I have not found a better resource to commend to students with confidence that they will engage with Scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that hundreds of students in our diocese will use Engage to spend time daily in God's word. We know that this will have a lasting impact on their lives and establish life-long habits of personal Bible study.'

Great for teenagers looking for a short but challenging devotion(Review written for 'Engage: The Collection')
I used this as a teenager, and now recommending this to the youth group at my church. Each devotion can take 5-20 minutes and I like that there was no dates so no pressure. Perfect for teenagers to decide how much of time and effort to give.
excellent bible study aids(Review written for 'Engage: The Collection')
Find these bible study aids very helpful for my teenager. They involve thought about the passage and are in manageable daily portions.
Excellent resource(Review written for 'Engage: The Collection')
I was excited to find an undated bible reading resource that covered the whole of scripture - I have purchased this for a secondary school library so that they can be used by pupils aged 12-18 and the RE department are thrilled. The books are suitable for younger teens all the way through to adults and the first keen borrowers were school support staff. I have told friends about them and one said it was just what she had been searching for as a daily reading help for her 11 year old son.
Direct and engaging(Review written for 'Engage Annual Subscription')
I use this with my teenage children. It's written in an engaging and relevant style and this is what I find useful. Also useful are the more open-ended questions.
Good(Review written for 'Engage Annual Subscription')
My teenage sister has found 'Engage' helpful and very suited to her age and situation.
Engage Books(Review written for 'Engage: The Collection')
The Engage books are well presented and very eye-catching with excellent material going through the Bible in language that is easy to understand without compromising the core principles. I would certainly recommend these books without hesitation. My only other observation is that it is a shame that there isn't a DVD to go with course similarly to the Christianity Explored.
At our church we are evaluating as to whether we purchase all 20 of these books for those attending the course, but this may be too an expensive route to take, nevertheless, excellent well presented material
Great resource(Review written for 'Engage: The Collection')
Great resource to have on hand. Good to have bible studies in stock for when youth express interest in bible reading, engage is the best for teens I have used.
