Bible Reading Plans

Four readings per day: The plan found in For the Love of God involves four readings each day and comes with a daily commentary by New Testament scholar D.A. Carson. This plan will have you read through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the rest of the Bible once in the course of one year. This is a big goal. You can find the reading plan here. You can print a copy of the plan and check it off as you read. If you miss a day, simply pick up where you left off. If you would like to get a daily email with the reading plan and the commentary by D.A. Carson, you can sign up here.

Two readings per day: Redeeming Grace Church’s Bible reading plan divides the above plan into two years and it involves two readings each day. If you follow it you will read the entire New Testament and Psalms and half of the Old Testament each year. In the following year, you will read the rest of the Old Testament, and the New Testament and Psalms again. You can find that plan here.

Book-at-a-Time Bible Reading Plan: The Book-at-a-Time Bible reading plan takes you through the entire Bible in one year. It provides two readings for each day. The first reading alternates between Old and New Testament books. The second reading takes you through a chapter of the wisdom literature and Isaiah. There are five or six days each month with no designated reading to allow time to catch up on missed readings or to spend extra time in meditation.

5x5x5 Bible Reading Plan: If you want a more modest goal, this plan by Discipleship Journal will allow you to read through the New Testament in 5 days a week, 5 minutes a day.

One Chapter a Day: Read through the Bible in three years by reading one chapter per day. You can find the plan here.
