There are many different ways to read through the Bible, and here are a few we have found to be helpful:
- The 5-Day Bible Reading Program - This plan is 5 (instead of 7 days a week). It covers the entire Bible in a year and is pseudo-chronological in nature. Looks like a great option and less intense than the M'Cheyne Plan.
- Robert Murray M'Cheyne Plan - This plan takes you through the Old Testament once and the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs twice in one calendar year.
- This blog is a web-based version of D.A. Carson's excellent devotional commentary that follows M'Cheyne's plan. It's an excellent companion resource.
- Chronological Plan - This plan follows the chronology of Scripture rather than the canonical order of the books.
- Discipleship Journal Reading Plan - Commonly known as the 5x5x5 reading plan, this plan will lead you through the New Testament in a year by reading 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week. It will also suggest 5 ways to dig deeper as you read.
- Plan for Shirkers and Slackers - This is a more relaxed plan to read the Bible in a year.
No matter what plan you use, reading your Bible is important, and Matt Smethurst has some good advice on how to approach reading the Bible this year.
