Five years ago five UCCF (Universities and Colleges Christian Union) staff met with publisher Robert Hicks to discuss UCCF’s next Gospel Project. Armed with a wealth of ideas, they went on to grab a coffee at a restaurant opposite Bath railway station and it was there, on 6th April 2011, that the idea for Uncover was born. Since then 260,000 Uncover Gospels and 115,000 Uncover Seeker Bible Studies have been distributed.
Thousands of people have discovered Jesus through Uncover and many have come to faith in Him. Like this experience of a
Nottingham CU student on her year abroad: “This year I’m living with three girls from England in Madrid as part of my year abroad.
About four weeks ago one of them hit a bit of a crisis. In God’s grace I was able to pray for her in that time, as well as offer to read Uncover with her. We did the first Uncover study… and then the second and third. After we’d finished the second she was so desperate to carry on that I was hardly going to say no! When I left her last night I suggested that she write down reasons for and against becoming a Christian. Tonight we chatted through that and she gave her life to Jesus.”
20 different translations of Uncover are now being used across the world. Uncover John’s Gospels are now available.
These hardback, interactive gospels contain space for notes and reflections, links to online materials and the 6
Uncover John Seeker Bible Studies.
