Read the Bible in 2011 ◊ Overview


If you missed my post in early January, you may be wondering what’s going on when you check in and find that each day there’s a post on a different book of the Bible. Why am I skipping around? As I read through the Bible in 2011, the plan I’m using designed by Michael Coley (see the right sidebar) varies the daily readings.

Here’s an overview of the plan:

Sunday: Epistles Romans–Jude
Monday: The Law Genesis–Deuteronomy
Tuesday: History Joshua–Esther
Wednesday: Psalms
Thursday: Poetry Job–Song of Solomon
Friday: Prophecy Isaiah–Malachi, Revelation
Saturday: Gospels Matthew–John, Acts

The beautiful image gives you a visual overview of the Bible: the number of books in the Bible, the length of each book and each chapter, and the thousands of cross reference connections between the books. I want to encourage you to read through the Bible this year so you can have an overview of the content of the Bible, the Word of God.

In Paul’s farewell to the elders at Ephesus, he said,

“…for I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God.”
Acts 20:27 ESV

You cannot know God’s whole counsel if you have only read part of it. Your eyes can delight in this visual overview of the Bible; this year let your mind and heart delight in a word for word overview of the Bible.

One thought on “Read the Bible in 2011 ◊ Overview

  1. I wanted to add that I am trying to read and post on the same day; however, there are a few times that although I do the day’s Bible reading, I don’t get the post up until the next day (such as the last two Mondays!).

    In any event, don’t wait for my posts to read the Bible. Pray and ask God to teach you and then read the Bible first, always.

    My posts are meant to be an encouragement to you and to provide some helpful background or application, but not as a substitute for your own Bible reading.
