There are any number of ways to approach reading the Bible. We’ve provided a number of different reading plans to suit your lifestyle. If you like a plan that begins on January 1st and it’s any other day of the year, just start there and mark off each day. If you find your pace to be too fast or too slow, come back here and choose another plan. It’s not important which plan you use, but that you spend time in the Word every day.

If you’d like to read through the New Testament in one year, five days a week, check out our Word on the Word page.
