Bible in a Year – my Favorite Plan!

Never before in human history have so many people had such easy access to the Bible – or people of any faith to their sacred books, for that matter – than we have to the Scriptures.

Reading through the entire Bible in a year is a terrific goal for any year. And my very favorite reading plan is the quirkily-named, “Bible Plan for Shirkers and Slackers.” What’s to like? Most reading plans are ruined if you miss a couple of days, feel guilty or a failure, and bail out. This has a special feature: you can miss a day or even days, and still not jump the tracks of the plan! You just pick it up where you left off. Click to download!

It only takes about 70 hours to read the whole Bible, that is, an average of 1 hour and a quarter per week. That makes it about the length of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, which is to literature what the rack was to the Inquisition. The Bible is a much better read!

Happy 2020!

One thought on “Bible in a Year – my Favorite Plan!

  1. Here’s one for mathematical simpletons who don’t know where the books of the Bible are located: start with the first book (should be Genesis) read 3.25 chapters per day (actually you can alternate between 3 and 4 per day) and by the end of 2020, you’ll be at Revelation 22.21 (the very end of the Bible).
