Read Through the Bible in a Year

Have you ever read through the Bible cover to cover?  If not, you really should try it.  It is amazing what a different perspective you get on God’s word when you see things in context.  If you have done it before, but haven’t in a while, or aren’t doing it now, you should try it again.

Here is the schedule I use.  For 2013,  I started week one on Sunday, December 30, 2012.  You can start it at any time – the biggest thing is that you do it.  The thought behind this concept is that you read a different section each day of the week.  Sunday is from the Psalms, Monday from the law, Tuesday old testament history, Wednesday poetry and wisdom, Thursday from the old testament prophets, Friday from new testament history and Saturday from the letters and epistles.

This plan was designed by my sister, Julie Link, a number of years ago.  I have used it a number of times, and still like the perspective it gives.
