    Funny what Twitter brings ... I think I'll follow along too. 90 days to get the whole thing done? Sounds good to me.

    I read through the bible once, maybe twice, back in the 80's. I don't really care whether I never do it again.

    What I've done lately has seemed much more profitable to me. I read John then Chronicles, Ezra, and Nehemiah and the books of the prophets as they referenced them. That gave me the history of the kings of Israel along with God's commentary on the subject. Then I read Malachi and picked up with Luke and Matthew. So immediately after reading God's commentary on Israel, I read what He did about it by taking matters into His own hands in Judea. The same God Who'd been busting His pen trying to redeem Israel stepped down to Earth to finish the job, and that feel was retained by following the history up that way.

    I have to admit I was surprised by how many good kings there were.

    Now I'm reading Deut/Joshua/Judges to get His works in eventually setting up the kings.

    We do what we think is important. I like to read through the Bible because I know Jesus did. I also like to read through the whole Bible because of my view of inspiration . . . I don't think there is one jot or tittle that isn't important (and I'm thinking of what God deems important; not me or you).

    Hi Jonathan! Glad to have you aboard. You must let me know how you're getting along. One down - 89 to go!

    Hi Code,
    Mostly I just flit back and forth between books. I'm looking forward in the next few months to getting a concentrated hit. Then I'm sure I'll flit again.

    Hi Bobby, what's your bible reading style? Do you just read through, get to Revelation and start again?

    I did this last year, only it took me 148 days, at 8 chapters per day - about 15 minutes of reading if you read the Bible as you'd read any other book.

    Yes. But as I am reading in the OT I also like to concurrently read random books/epistles in the NT (which means that by time I've made to the NT from my OT reading I've already read the NT through multiple times).

    I think the main thing we need to do is ask the LORD to give us a thirst and desire to read His Word, and He will!!

    When I bought the box-set of The West Wing, a brother challenged me quite seriously that it would be pretty appaling if as a Christian I had seen all of the West Wing, but not read all of The Bible.

    Having now watched just about all of The West Wing, the rebuke has hit home!

    Count me in on joining you chaps.

    Nice to have you aboard Graham.

    I've just realised that 16 chapters is about the most you'll ever have to read. It's usually between 10-14 chapters a day. At some point today I'll get to Genesis 28.

    I'm tracking :) The one problem for me lies in the fact that for the first time I'm reading large chunks in a Study Bible. The pace is therefore pretty slow and all those footnotes and charts add to the load ... but it does make it fun.

  10. Glen

    Ah yes - I've read about your free study bible. I passed by my favourite ever study bible entry yesterday. In the NIV study bible the footnote for the LORD promising Abram seed like the stars (Gen 15:5) it says "Over 9000 stars can be seen in the near eastern sky."

    How dumb is that! The LORD says "If indeed you can count them..." - the study bible says "Yes we can."
