“These online Bible studies come from my popular Dear Theophilus series of devotional Bible studies,” DeHaan said. “Though they’re already available in e-book, paperback, and hardcover, I’m excited to share them online to facilitate group discussion.”

Use the online Bible study for your small group, Sunday school class, or Bible study, on whatever day you meet.

Groups can adapt the study for whatever schedule works best for their meetings.

As a former small group director, Peter also shares meeting tips to help users maximize their time together.

In addition, the next four studies have been announced. Each one will follow online as soon as one study wraps up.

Read the Bible in 2023

Form a Habit of Daily Bible Reading Next Year

Every year I intentionally explore the Bible, reading it each day. Some years I focus on the New Testament, other years, the Old Testament, or even the entire Bible.

Will you join me this year?

I’m pleased to announce that the 2023 Bible reading guides are now available from ABibleADay.com. Get your 2023 Bible reading plan today.

Bible Chronological Plan

Now it its third year is the chronological Bible reading plan. This year it’s been tweaked and improved even further, based on user feedback.

This is an approximate chronological reading guide that puts the books of the Bible in order, since a comprehensive chronological reading of the Bible requires a lot of details that won’t fit on a concise handout.

This Bible reading plan only takes 12 to 15 minutes a day.

And each Tuesday throughout the year, I’ll blog about a passage from that day’s reading.

Download your own chronological 2023 Bible reading guide.
