Tolle Lege Challenge
Take Up and Read
St. Augustine (354-430 AD) was one of the great figures of the early Church. The story of his conversion is told in his Confessions, in which he describes how God used a single verse from the epistle to the Romans to suddenly convert him.

While bitterly wrestling with his sin and questions about God, Augustine heard neighboring children chanting, "Tolle lege, tolle lege" or "Take up and read, take up and read." Augustine took these words as a command from God to take up his Bible and read. After reading Romans 13:13-14, Augustine gave his life to Christ.

Just as Augustine's life was changed by reading God's word, we too can be changed by the inspired word of God. Students at Arma Dei Academy are immersed in scripture and quality literature every day. In honor of Augustine and the power of the written word, students in Kindergarten through 5th grade will participate in Arma Dei Academy's Tolle Lege Reading Challenge each weekend in February. Stay tuned for details!
