Bible Reading Help

For those of you who do not read the whole Bible and want to but haven't gotten started because the prospect is too daunting, let me make it easy for you.

If you are a very slow reader, you will be able to read the whole Bible in 80 hours. How do I know? You can listen to an audio Bible in 72 hours with nothing left out.

If you have a smartphone, you can read the Bible in many different versions by downloading a Bible app.

If you prefer paper, here is a painless and profitable way to read the Old Testament and New Testament. You can also view this Bible reading plan online here. Each day you read one chapter in four different places (two if they are short chapters). Start with Genesis 1, Ezra 1, Matthew 1, and Acts 1. This will take you no more than 20 minutes. The next day, read chapter 2 in each of these four books. At the end of one year, you will have read all of the Old Testament once, the New Testament twice, and the Book of Psalms twice.

You will want to read it again.
