Bible Reading Plans for 2012
I encourage you to make a “New Year’s Resolution” to methodically read your Bible in 2012. Here are some reading plans to help aid you in that effort:
Read the New Testament in a year (only 3 to 4 minutes a day, Monday – Friday only)
Read the Old Testament in a year (about 10 to 12 minutes a day)
Read the Entire Bible in a year (about 12 to 15 minutes a day)
Monthly reading plans (only 3 to 4 minutes a day)
The least effective way to read the Bible is to start on page 1 and read straight through to the end. The different sections, or “books,” of the Bible are grouped by category and not so much in chronological order, so a sequential reading does not make much sense.
If this is your first time reading the Bible, we recommend starting with the New Testament. If that seems a bit overwhelming, check out the monthly reading plans. (Save the Old Testament and entire Bible plans for later.)
Peter DeHaan writes about biblical spirituality. He seeks a fresh approach to faith and following God through the lens of scripture, without the baggage of manmade traditions and practices. Read more in his blog, books, and personal weekly email updates.
