Bible reading plans

At the start of this year I started a reading plan to read the whole bible in a year. There were four readings a day: an Old Testament one, a Psalm or something from the wisdom section, a gospel and a New Testament passage. This reading plan was good, it even had 25 readings a month so it was easier to catch up if you miss one or two. But when winter came around (and early in Canberra) I started to stay in bed longer in the mornings and that reading plan kinda became non-existent. Instead I just stuck to a single book to get through and listen to sermons on the book in my lunch hour.

Anyway I found a few more Bible reading plans that come in the form of RSS feeds, which is right up my ally. I spend too much time in front of my PC and the readings get pushed out to me, so I am with little excuse to not read the Bible. I'm going with this chronological one because it is interesting to see where they think in history each events took place. Job is before Genesis 12 as Job was before Abraham, the book of Acts is cut up with the letters from the New Testament, etc..

Also there is the SOAP (read Scripture, Observe what the passage says, Apply it to our lives, Pray about it) site that you can subscribe to to get your weekly reading sent out to you.

These links maybe helpful for the new year.


  1. Hey, here's a really cool site with Bible Reading Plans that I'd think you'd like. Bible Study Tools They not only have some personalizable Bible reading plans, but an amazing set of tools, and you can also highlight text, save your own notes, use a split screen panel so you can see two translations, a translation and a commentary, etc. Definitely check it out!

  2. Thanks kristie for that link. There is a wealth of information and tools out there, I just need to know where to find them.

  3. I just came across the post mate, and it's cool especially because getting a Bible reading list is on my to do list. Can't wait to get into it, thanks!
