Do you have a dusty Bible? One that sits on the shelf, collecting cobwebs, lonely, and unread? If so, that should be rectified!
Listed below are some Bible-reading plans. Or you can make your own. There are only 260 chapters in the New Testament, and you can certainly do that in a year! Or choose one of the more challenging options. You can read the whole Bible in a year by reading only 3.3 chapters per day.
So pick a plan, or make a plan, and ask the Lord to help you be diligent, and to bless your time in His Word.
Click below to see some options for you to consider. (They are in .pdf format, and will open in a new window.)
- Whole Bible, 2 readings per day – recommended! – print off 1st page on the front and the 2nd page on the back, fold in half, put in Bible, and check-off as you go – includes “catch-up” or “review” days as well, which is very helpful
- Whole Bible, 4 readings per day (similar to the one above, but 4 different sections of Scripture per day)
- Whole Bible, straight through
- Whole Bible, topical
- Whole Bible, chronological
- Whole Bible, Psalms on Sundays (print off on front & back of 8.5 x 14 paper, fold twice)
- Whole Bible, different genre each day of the week
- New Testament, 5 days/week – easy, great plan if “you don’t think you can do it” (you can!)
- New Testament + Psalms + Proverbs
- If you’re really looking for a great challenge (10 chapters/day), try Professor Horner’s system, comments on it here
There are many other plans available. Ligonier has a list of some here. The Gospel Coalition has more listed here. Find more good resources at Open Up the Bible. And give the 2-minute video below a view!
