Bible Reading Plans
Discipleship Journal Book-at-a-Time Bible Reading Plan (PDF) – This plan provides two readings for each day. The first reading alternates between Old and New Testament books, giving you three or four chapters a day. The Gospels are spread throughout the year. The second reading takes you through a chapter or so of the wisdom literature and Isaiah. Combined, these readings will take you through the entire Bible in one year.
