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.)
