A Biblical Marathon

The 24th annual U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon began Sunday evening as a way to celebrate First Amendment freedoms, encourage Americans to read their Bibles and prepare for the National Day of Prayer later this week.

Pastor Michael Hall, who has co-directed the event with his wife, Terry Shaffer Hall, for the last 20 years, told The Christian Post that the Scripture is read non-stop "without commentary or comment" until every verse, from Genesis through the Book of Revelation, has been read aloud.
