January is the standard month for starting a Bible reading plan. [February is the standard month for giving it up.] But I know people who have started and finished a plan. I read through the Chronological Bible once before, but since that was over five years, it’s definitely time to do it again.
I like the idea of starting halfway through the year. And if you start today, you’ll get four days in before July begins, which makes a nice cushion.But keep in mind that it’s not a race. There’s always grace if you fall behind or put it aside for a few weeks.
By the way, I’m not the only one who has struggled with reading plans. Over at Ransom Fellowship, Margie Haack has a great post about her experience trying to get through one.
She eventually made up her own plan with the wonderful title: Bible Reading Program for Shirkers and Slackers.
Jack’s reading plan, reading the New Testament in one year while reading the Old Testament in two can be found here,
Here’s a plan that intersperses the Old and New Testaments Bonus: it gives you Sundays off.
Plans galore at this site, including the Chronological Bible online. There a box on the right where you can choose which month you start with, in case you want to begin at the beginning.
If you don’t want to buy the Chronological Bible,you can print out the plan here.
Is there another plan you’ve enjoyed?
