An Invitation to Read the Bible Cover to Cover
Is it your goal to read through the Bible in 2016? Let me suggest a plan, based on my book “Cover to Cover: Through the Bible in 365 Days”, and invite you to join me each day here to share the journey. Whether or not you have the book either in Kindle or print format, you are welcome to join me each day. If you would like more assurance that this is a good goal to set you may find this helpful.
The “Cover to Cover” schedule will take us through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation in one year. We will be reading about 85 verses per day. With the daily readings being of uniform length, you will need about the same amount of time each day to complete the assignment. Keep on schedule by either reading from your own Bible using your preferred translation, or pull up this blog and click on the reading assignment. You will instantly be taken to the daily assignment in the English Standard Translation from Bible Gateway.com.
What could be simpler?
We, who are serious Christians or who are considering the Christian faith, should make Bible reading a regular part of our lives. But if you have never read through the Bible, you will see that it is a massive undertaking. It can be done and I have done it annually for many years. I do not recommend attempting a faster reading. I find it preferable to read daily at a steady pace taking some time to reflect on some of the verses.
I hope you will plan to join me here for daily reading. New blogs will be posted each day at 5:00 AM (Eastern Standard Time in the USA). I will be here each day with a fresh posting to encourage you along the way. You are welcome to make comments or ask questions on any of the daily posts.
I hope you will join me on January 1.
