The annual “Bible Reading Marathon” is on the steps of the U.S. Capitol this week. Scripture will be read aloud, uninterrupted, for just under four days straight.

“Because the Bible is at the heart of America’s founding principles, it should be voiced at the heart of our Federal Government, exhorting our nation to return to God’s precepts,” the vision statement on the website for DC Bible Marathon explains.

“Therefore, it is our desire to publicly read God’s Holy Word on the steps of the nation’s Capitol, every year, for ninety consecutive hours.”

Established in 1990, the marathon brings hundreds of Christians to Washington D.C. to the front of the Capitol Building to read aloud the entire Word of God publicly from cover to cover, with no commentary. The marathon is a ministry of Seedline International, headquartered in Brazil, Indiana.
