For the last several years, I have been reading the Bible through each year. I’ve used several different plans, and there are elements of each that I’ve really enjoyed. A couple of years ago I decided to do something different. I like the idea of reading each book through so that you get a good feel for the flow of the book. But I really don’t like to wait until the last third of the year to read the New Testament. I love reading the Wisdom Literature, but I think I appreciate them more in smaller portions.
So, after looking through the various Bible reading plans available, I decided to create my own. There’s a decent chance that someone has made one just like this already. If so, please let me know. I’d be glad to share it.
My plan alternates between Old Testament and New Testament books but completes one book at a time. On the weekends, my plan has readings from the Psalms on Saturdays and a chapter from Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, or Song of Songs on Sundays.
I attempted to portion out the readings so that it wouldn’t be too much for any one day, but I may need to adjust the readings as I go through it again this year. Below you’ll find a link to the pdf document with the full reading plan.
I’m also going to be using the Journibles from Reformation Heritage Books to slow down and focus on a chapter or smaller portion of Scripture each day.
