hands closed praying on a Bible

I will be reading through the Bible differently from now on

Reading through the Bible each year.

I have been reading through the Bible each year for most of my life. For about twenty years I was a member of a church that used the One Year Bible and sermons and group discussions were based on recent readings. For the last four years I have been a member of a church that uses the Scripture Union program and the pastor meets monthly with a group of readers to discuss their insights for the last month. Both programs work very well and I strongly recommend them or some other program that encourages Bible reading and corporate discussion in every church.

An addition daily reading I’ve started recently.

A few months ago in my Links to Begin the Weeks post I said that I had started reading the ESV Church History Study Bible: Voices from the Past, Wisdom for the Present. I read one chapter each day with its readings.
