Do you struggle to finish a 1-year Bible reading plan?
Trying to squeeze all 66 books of the Bible into 12 months of reading is no easy task, especially if you don’t want to just speed through.
Here’s an alternative option:
Use a 2-year Bible reading plan instead.
- 5 days a week (no weekends)
- Alternate 2 weeks in the Old Testament/1 week in the New Testament
- No dates; start anytime
- Take several weeks off per year as needed (total schedule=95 weeks)
- Basic chronological order within each Testament
- Psalms and Proverbs sprinkled throughout
With this plan you only read 5 days a week and take the weekends off. Two weeks in the Old Testament alternate with one week in the New Testament. The blocks aren’t dated so you can start anytime. You can also skip days here and there and still finish on time. Or read straight through and finish in less than 2 years.
I created this two-year plan based on a chronological timeline of the Bible, with the exception of Psalms and Proverbs, which are interspersed throughout the plan.
So here’s the 2-Year Bible Reading Plan. If you try it, let me know what you think.
We should never have to rush as we read through the Bible. We benefit more from a steady, smooth pace.
Reading the testimonies of others’ encounters with God can awaken us to our own encounters with God.
