Engage: Issue 1
The first issue of Engage - daily Bible reading notes for teenagers. This issue looks at Psalms, John, Genesis, Amos, Colossians and Jonah!
It also examines questions like 'has Science disproved Christianity?', 'what's the bible anyway?' and contains articles on the Trinity and looking after the planet.
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...
'There is a huge need for this resource! Most daily reading material is of a more devotional nature where a passage is read and someone has written comments on what it means and how we live accordingly. But Engage actually engages young people in scripture and helps them explore and discover the meaning themselves.'
- Dave Wright, Coordinator for Youth Ministries, Diocese of South Carolina

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.
Helpful starter for church kids who are bored with 'samey bible reading notes"
Get these for the 10-14 year olds to help them get into regular bible reading. Enthusiastic uptake and we are now into week 7 and still going strong. Girls seem to like the extension section at the back which allows them to dive deeper into the passages.
personal use or small group use
Great for personal use, or also in a small group setting. Occasionally pushes some conservative/evangelical theological points that aren't natural to the text (this is coming from an evangelical!), but overall it is very good!
I was given this at a church camp i wnet to, it is soo great. I recommend it to any teenage who finds the bible confusing or boring. Its amazing!! :)
Great Aid for Teens!
Great wee book, encourages you to read about 15 verses per night and has helpful summaries and prayer guides. Also explains the key points of the verses read to further your knowledge. If you are still wanting more there are several more verses to read on the subject which can be found at the back. Is relevant to situations teenagers (like myself) face everyday. At £4 it is a bargain as you get about 90 days worth per book. Can't wait to receive the next issue!
this is good
i picked this up at my youth serves and loved it the next day i turned off everything and sat down and flipped the page open and it was so oganized of me it was greeat
Engage is very encouraging to read and easy to understand, especially for young Christians, prehaps maybe if you write another engage you could leave enough space one each page so we could actually write in the book itself. overall excellent, this will be not be the last time i buy engage, and will be certainity recommend this to my christian friends, great job!
Hits the right notes with my 13 yr old...
Having completed all the XTB study books with my 13 yr old we had to progress to something else. She'd really enjoyed XTB and was reluctant to move away from that style of study. However, now we've got into it 'Engage' has got a real thumbs up from her.
