New Poll: Did You Start a New Bible Reading Plan This Year?

A new poll is up and running! Look to your left underneath the archive and vote! Did you start a new Bible reading plan this year? Are you using your old plan? Do you use reading plans at all? Did you decide to go off the chain and off the plan this year? Give me your votes. Comment and give me your thoughts and opinions on reading plans, starting the new year etc. I would love to hear what plan you're using post links in your comments below.

As for me, Yes I did start a new Bible Reading Plan this year. I'm reading this plan in my ESV Wide Margin. I'm reading Dr. Grant Horner's plan in the NLT, in addition to my Jeremiah studies etc. Pray that God would give me supernatural discipline.

  1. I started Dr. Grant Horner's reading system a couple months ago. I plan on using it throughout all of 2011 and hopefully years to come. I really like this plan as it is ever changing. It's a great cross section through the entire bible and it's amazing seeing the same themes, characters, and tone appearing from cover to cover. In addition, it eliminates the stumbling blocks that I've had with typical reading plans: lineage, poetry, prophecy, etc.

  2. I, too, am doing Dr. Grant Horner's plan, and have been for a little while now. But I am using the KJV this year. Since it is its anniversary year, and I have never read through the KJV, I thought it would be fun to do it this year.

  3. Great! I'm enjoying Dr. Grant Horner's Plan too for all the same reasons. The only drawback is that I like reading larger portions of the same place usually to get context for each reading. Sometimes it can be hard to get your head into a narrative or a debate like Job when it's split up for days.

    A post is quickly coming about the KJV's Anniversary. If you haven't read ye olde King James Version, I highly recommend it, it's still my favorite translation of the New Testament. I hope to have some KJV reviews as well.

  4. I have also started Dr. Grant Horner's reading plan. I like the fact that I am reading a great variety of scripture. Since I am a Pastor, it also helps me to keep fresh in what I am preaching, not the same old passages. I beleive that it also gives me more insight as to the sweep of the Gospel across the bible, not just in the NT.

  5. I have been using a chronological plan and a through the Bible in a year plan from the back of my HCS Bible.

  6. I've been using Horner's plan in the ESV for about seven months, and love it. I'm continuing that this year, in addition to my homemade "four chapters a day" reading in the KJV.

    On top of that, I've also gotten interested in reading The Message, so I usually get in a few chapters of that a day as well.

  7. I must be the odd ball. I'm not following any plan. Read a bit everyday, just that.

    If something draws my attention I will consult a Study Bible or some online resource.

  8. I went without a Reading Plan for the first 2 years of my Christian life. I just read about 5-10 chapters per day. I read the whole Bible a couple times and read and reread the epistles constantly.
