God's Words of Comfort


 Read the Bible in One Year


Various Options

        There are various options out there for reading the entire Bible in one year, including books, calendars, and reading plans. There are even some two- and three-year Bible reading plans out there as well. You might want to try reading different translations in subsequent years, to get different, fresher approaches of God's Holy Word.


One Example

        One example is the New Living Translation Bible published by Tyndale House which reorganizes the Bible into 365 sections, one for each day of the year. Each section consists of portions of the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs. If you decide to read the Bible beginning on January 1st, you will read the first chapter of Genesis, followed by the first chapter of Matthew, the first book in the New Testament, then some verses from Psalms 1, and then conclude with a few verses from Proverbs 1. You continue reading through all the books of the Bible in this fashion during the year, so that on December 31st, you will finish the last chapter of Malachi, the final book in the Old Testament, followed by the last portion of Revelation in the New Testament, then the six verses of Psalms 150, the last of the Psalms, and conclude with the final few verses of Proverbs 31.
