WASHINGTON, April 30, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- For the 29th year, the annual U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon is underway on the West front of the U.S. Capitol.

It began at Sunday at 6:00 p.m. with the reading of Genesis 1:1 and for the next 90 continuous hours, every word of the Bible is read aloud without commentary. It culminates at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 3, with the reading of the final chapter of the book of Revelation.

During these five days and four nights, hundreds of volunteers, who honor the Bible, travel to the West Front of the U.S. Capitol to read a portion of the Bible, to listen and to pray.

Readers come from diverse cultures, ages, denominations, races, languages and political parties. The sponsor, Bible Foundation, has on hand Bibles in 100 languages for people to read. Many branches of faith: Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, Messianic and Jewish, set aside their differences and come together around the Bible once a year at our U.S. Capitol. They hope to bless the Nation by providing an example of unity.
