Last year, I invited readers of this blog to join me in reading the Bible through from Genesis through Revelation in 2005. I don’t know how many joined me, but I hope those who did have been as blessed as I’ve been. This is my fifth time to read through the Bible since 1997 (I’d read through it before that, too, but I wasn’t doing it on a regular basis), and every time I read through it from start to finish, I’m amazed by the new things God shows me. The word of God truly is living and active.
While at Zondervan this fall, I learned about The Bible in 90 Days, a new Bible reading plan that takes the reader through the Bible, as the title says, in 90 days, reading 12 pages per day. Of course, buying this special Bible isn’t necessary, but it is helpful because it measures out the reading so exactly. I ordered my copy from the publisher awhile back, and it arrived via UPS today. It’s a lovely thin-line, large print, hardcover NIV.
I’m joining some writer friends who are reading through the Bible in the first three months of 2006 using The Bible in 90 Days. I noticed that Mary at Rhythms of Grace blogged about it today, too, so apparently news of this new Bible and its reading plan is spreading. If any of you are interested in joining me on this odyssey, I’d love to have you along for the experience. The book is available from Amazon.com as well as all other on-line and local bookstores.
Whether you join this Bible reading challenge or not, I pray that you will be hungry for the written Word of God in the new year and that you will dine on it regularly.
In the grip of His grace,
