I'm always on the look out for a good schedule for reading the Bible -- what do you use ?

I don't try to read the whole Bible in a year, although that is a good commitment to make. I read what I can in a sitting and what I feel I can take in. The time of day is not important; it's just making time, any time, that's important.

A lot of people use different plans. I've seen plans that take you through the whole Bible, cover to cover. Another plan I've seen divides the Bible into seven genres, and the same day every week you read from that genre. So, for example, every Monday all year long you read from the Pentateuch until it is finished; every Tuesday from the historical books; every Wednesday from the poetic books; every Thursday from the prophets; every Friday from the Gospels; every Saturday from the epistles; and every Sunday from the apocalypse. Some people prefer to read the New Testament first and then the Old Testament.

At the end of the day, what's important is that you find a plan that you like, that you can fit into your schedule, and that you feel that you will benefit from. There's no one way to read the Bible, and different ways of reading can lead to different insights. We all grow at our own pace, so find something that's right for you.

I found a bunch of reading plans here:

Last year I was using the Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan (1st link) where you started reading each day from 4 spots in the Bible - I really liked seeing the way the different parts of scripture interact. This year I'm working through a chronological reading plan (2nd link) although I'm a bit behind. I don't worry so much if I get behind - try to read as often as I can. I guess I've taken a several year break from Bible study books b/c I felt a need to gain a sense of the Bible as a whole.

find a teacher to teach, chapter by chapter and verse by verse, with all the understanding of figures of speech of the times and what the names meant...like Isaiah, means Yahwehs salvation....and Exodus means the way out, and the way out means through Our Lord.

BiblePlan.org will also email you your daily Bible reading.

Best one yet, get God to tell you what to read. Churches are to egocentric to be trusted.

in fact, it's not. The Hebrew consonants in the name of God are YHWH - sometimes different vowels are included. Yahweh is one of the alternatives.
