It is through her passion to share God’s word that manifested so much success and miracles in her life that she was inspired to create Ignite Bible Project Hope Journal. Dr. Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino, the author who happens to be the President of Eton International School is also the Nuestra Senorra del Perpetuo Socorro Parish (NSPS) Sampaloc, Manila Coordinator, Biblical Apostolate Head.
Ignite Bible Project Hope Journal is a practical daily guide to either kick-starting or revolutionizing a Catholic’s personal time with God in our contemporary lives. You don’t need t be a devotee or a preacher to have one. As long as you are eager and your heart is open to knowing more about God and His plan in your life, you have free access to what God is about to reveal to you.
Our time is so full of hardships and failures, add to that the underlying influence of the social media, connecting to the Word may seem tedious to many. Without them realizing how powerful the words of the Bible is and can be a tool of success in our lives.
“The Bible is a story of salvation from Genesis to Jesus and Ignite allows a person to reflect his life story with different stories of faith from Old to New Testament,” shares Tolentino.
Incorporating daily Bible reading plans, a Bible reflection system, prayer guide and help with a range of other Christian disciplines, Ignite is tapping into a growing interest in disciplined devotional time of Catholic, both young and old.
“It offers readers a new way of encountering the Word of God—our true source of hope and inspiration, in a fun and personally engaging way,” shares Archdiocese of Manila Biblical Apostolate Director Rev. Fr. Antonio Navarrete, Jr.
Turning a new leaf in doing daily journals, Navarrete added some kind of a question and answer method, or ‘slogan-like statements’ to describe a particular topic or bible teaching, and a journal material where readers can easily jot down notes or reflections, truly aides the imagination of readers, helps them become comfortable with the Word of God again, or even for the first time, making the Bible once again a handbook of hope and a guide for daily living.
Tolentino says she has seen the need for CChristians to have a personal revelation from God and not solely on borrowed revelation from other people. In Ignite, they can find out directly what is God saying to them in all aspects of their lives—personal, career, financial, physical, and spiritual, and help them have a new depth of Bible reading and prayer using the journal.
Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) President Archbishop Socrates Villegas shares that the journal will greatly help catechists and youth ministers, teachers and educators, priests and missionaries, in their apostolic tasks, as the book is aimed at spreading love for the Word of God.
“This is new evangelization, a fresh and refreshing proclamation of the Word of God. Use Ignite and discover the joy of the Word of God and write the joy of the Bible by our lives,” adds Villegas.
This book publication is one of the 500 years countdown activities of to the 2021 Catholic Faith, which will begin on December 8, 2015. Proceeds of the book will go to the rebuilding of NSPS Sampaloc, Manila church.
