With an investment of less than five minutes a day, Monday through Friday, the entire New Testament of the Bible can be read in one year. For those who prefer to cover the entire Old Testament in one year, it will take a bit more time, reading about 10 to 12 minutes every day. If these options seem overwhelming, A Bible A Day has some alternate monthly Bible reading plans to help people ease into regular Bible reading.
Many people approach the Bible as they would a novel, starting at the beginning of Genesis and reading straight through to the end of Revelations. This can be discouraging because readers can become bogged down in sections, such as the law and major prophets,” said A Bible A Day founder and chief writer Peter DeHaan. "Our reading guides offer a mix of the Bible’s many genres, while still providing a logical approach.”
DeHaan notes the Bible is actually an anthology, written by many writers over a period of several centuries. It contains different forms of writing, which need to be understood as such. “The Bible is not a rule book or manual, but more of a faith narrative,” he said. In addition to Bible reading guides, A Bible A Day also provides an overview of each book of the Bible and other resources to guide readers.
