"As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, O God." Psalm 42:1
Reading through the entire Bible each year is a vital faith-building discipline. If you have made that commitment for 2017, here are four helpful reading plans to choose from. Just print them off 2-sided, fold in half, and keep handy in your Bible:
This is a great plan if you've never read through the entire bible. It begins with the basic foundation of Scripture through historical overview starting with the dramatic narratives in Genesis and Exodus. It provides a solid structure to then move through the Old Testament, weaving in the books of the prophets, wisdom literature, and the poetic books. The New Testament readings begin in Luke with the birth of Christ followed by Luke's sequel (the Book of Acts), then the book of Ephesians, which introduces us to Paul's teachings. Again this provides the basic foundation and historical structure on which we can better understand the rest of the New Testament. You will read through the entire Bible in one year with this plan.
365-Day Reading Plan
This plan moves you through straight through the Bible as it is printed.
90-Day Bible Reading Plan
This plan moves you through the entire Bible on 90 days, reading it like a novel. This plan allows you to discern overarching themes and understand flowing story lines without interruption. This is a great start for more indepth Bible study later.
The Bible at Your Own Pace
This plan allows for more indepth study time at your own pace, investigating tangent themes as the Lord leads, and spending as much time as you need in each verse of Scripture. Just check off each chapter as you finish.
