Bible Reading: Update


A few weeks ago I mentioned upcoming changes to my Bible Reading plan.  Now that I’ve implemented most of these changes, I see that what works on paper doesn’t always work as well in the actual reading.

The three chapter grouping for Wisdom books is more difficult to get through, at least while reading Proverbs.  Having several lists to read through, I’ve found that reading only 1 or 2 chapters does help move the reading along at a quicker pace.  Certainly, reading 2 chapters instead of one takes extra concentration, but it is do-able.  At the three chapter point, though, my attention wanders — especially so, perhaps, when reading Proverbs, in which each verse is an independent thought unrelated to the verses around it.  So, despite my best intentions in that plan, I’ve made a slight rearrangement that should work much better:

List 4:  Job and Proverbs — 1 chapter a day — 73 days
List 5:  Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon — 2 chapters a day — 85 days

I’m now finishing a reading through Proverbs, reduced to two chapters a day for the next few days.  Then I’ll start over with these two lists.  This same modification can be updated to the proposed “Bible in 90 days” plan, for a total of seven lists instead of six.

Here is my current modified Horner Bible Reading Plan (see detailed list here):

List 1:  Gospels  — usually 1 chapter a day, double up on shorter chapters — 71 days
List 2:  Pentateuch — usually 2 chapters, only 1 for longer chapters — 115 days
List 3:  New Testament Epistles (Romans through Jude) — 2 chapters per day — 60 days
List 4:  Job and Proverbs — 1 chapter a day — 73 days
List 5:  Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon — 2 chapters a day — 85 days
List 6:  OT History (Joshua through Esther) — 2 chapters a day — 124 days
List 7:  OT Prophets (Isaiah through Malachi) — 2 chapters a day — 125 days
List 8:  Acts and Revelation — 1 chapter a day — 50 days
