Reading thru the Bible in a year is now easy and enjoyable,

This review is from: The One Year Chronological Bible NIV (One Year Bible: Niv) (Hardcover)
I have always struggled to read through the Bible in a year. I would start out in January ok, but by March, it was pretty much done for the year. I would then start the next year all over again, always with the same results. That was before I got a Bible that actually told me what to read every day to be on schedule. And then I found out that in addition to that, there is this chronological Bible with the events more or less in the order they happened! I'm hooked now on daily Bible reading and think that if it was easy for others to do, they'd be hooked on it too!
I am now convinced more than anything else that a vigorous spiritual life absolutely requires regular reading and pondering God's Holy Word. I've always struggled with this up to now. Thanks to the daily Chronological Bible, I now look forward each afternoon when I get home from work to see what God will teach me through His word. And because it is in chronological order, the reading is more like a connected story rather than just 66 independent books strung together. Plus, you never really know what you will be reading next, depending on the sequence of events that took place all those years ago. It is a fresh look at a very familiar book, and a new adventure! And the NIV translation is accurate, relevant, and modern, which makes the reading more interesting and meaningful.
I now commit to taking the 15 minutes each day to read through that day's Word with sincerity and diligence. I'm all but convinced that my life is changing due to this commitment, and for the better! God now takes on new meaning in my life, and I have new, fresh relevance as I struggle to live every day. I feel that His Holy Spirit will speak often to me in the Word, and at least 15 minutes each day will be spent reading God's love letter to me so that I can put my priorities in the right sequence.
In the past month or so that I have discovered this, I have had new excitement about a 2000+ year old book, and now look forward to seeing what God will tell me in each day's 15 minutes alone with His Holy Word. All I need is my calendar and my Chronological Daily Bible.
For Christians out there, I'm sure that if you include daily Bible reading and prayer as an ingredient in your daily life, that you will have many rewards for that! I suggest this almost sinfully easy way for you to do daily Bible reading with the assurance that it will bless you in ways you never thought possible! It certainly has for me!

Thanks for the review, I am looking for a bible with a two year plan and wonder if this has that as well. One year is just too much.
