Bible Reading Plans 2021

I was planning to compile a list of plans, with lots of links, but the following link on the Ligonier site is so robust that I don’t need to include so many links after all. Most of the major Bible reading plans are here, including a tool to generate your own reading plan.

For something a little different, Religious Affections ministry offers a Bible Narratives Plan.

An assortment of Bibles are available at a friend’s shop, including One Year Bible’s that are already set up for a daily reading schedule. Browse the selection or call to request a specific Bible at Truth N Treasures.

Finally, if you are able to do a Bible binge reading challenge, why not try a swift reading through the whole Bible in a month or less? I did this last year and recommend everyone do it at least once! Here’s a link to some condensed reading plans that I shared in the past.

Bible Binge Reading

I’m wanting to continue posting as I read through Genesis, but before I get back into that, I wanted to encourage anyone who had read about the 25 Day Bible Reading Plan to seriously think about doing it if you haven’t already.

It doesn’t have to be 25 days. There’s my 35 Day Plan. You can even make your own schedule.

In this article from missionary Tim Berrey, he gives lots of practical advice and encouragement for completing a fast read through the Bible and why you really should consider it. He links to another good article about binge reading the Bible, too.

Think of all the time spent with social media, tv, and being distracted by advertisements and mindless web surfing. If you can trade that time for Bible reading, you can truly be redeeming the time, and being a better steward of it.

Instead of binge watching a tv series or movies, binge read the Bible! If you do it, please share with me about your experience.

35 Days Through the Bible

As noted in a previous post, I was editing someone’s 25 Day Bible Reading Plan. I added 10 days to my own plan to make a five week long plan instead. I have linked to the 35 Day Reading Plan here.

Sometimes the reading got very difficult to work through in the 25 day plan, especially in the Old Testament, so I added 10 days to spread the reading out, while still (hopefully!) preserving the experience of getting a great overview of the Bible in a short period of time.

In my plan, I didn’t write it with specific dates, so you can start it whenever you want. I would highly recommend setting a date to start and then counting ahead to find what the end date will be if you don’t miss any days. Try to go by those dates! If you don’t, it becomes too easy to miss a day and restart the plan over and over. Set a specific date in mind and stick to it!

I am often starting projects that I don’t finish. It was SO satisfying to finish this short, fast-paced reading plan. By God’s grace, I even finished a day early. My husband is doing the plan, but at a slower pace. He is using a Bible app with narration. He listens to the narration as he reads along. This has kept him from becoming distracted and slowing down too much.

May God bless all your efforts to get into His Word. Happy 2020!
