DAILY BIBLE READING SCHEDULE

It is amazing how many people who have been Christians for years, have not completely read through the Bible. They've read portions of it — the Gospels, Psalms, Acts, some of Paul's Epistles — but there are many parts that they've never touched. This is certainly understandable. The Bible can be a rather intimidating book. After all, it has hundreds of pages — 1,189 chapters; 31,101 verses; more than 750,000 words. That's enough to make anyone think twice. And although Bible scholars tell us that the Bible can be read in just 70 hours, that still seems like a lot of time. Besides, let's face it — some portions of the Bible can be really slow going and, for some people, just plain boring.

There is, however, a lot to be gained by reading it completely. You get much more of a sense of how the various parts fit together into a complete story of how God has revealed himself to us. By committing yourself to just 15 minutes a day, you can read through the entire Bible in a year. That's not too hard — most people can devote a quarter-hour to Bible reading every day. (After all, we're told we spend an average of 4 hours a day in front of the television.) And by doing this in 15-minute chunks, if you miss a day, it's easy to get caught up.

If you are interested in doing this, here are a couple of suggestions:
There are many different daily-Bible-reading schemes. The one below, while not my favorite, is easy to follow. And if you'll commit yourself to it, we can guarantee that you'll gain a new-found appreciation for God's Word. Simply select the date on which you want to start, and print the results. If you decide to do this, we'd be happy to hear about your progress.
