Reading the Bible in one Year

Many people benefit from reading through the entire Bible in a year. If you follow this plan, you’ll
accomplish this goal! These readings are also delineated by week rather than day. The plan begins
with the Old Testament and moves into the New Testament, but does not follow the exact order of
books in your Bible (which is not always chronological anyway). For example, the books of poetry
and wisdom literature (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs) are
interspersed into the first half of the Old Testament readings to provide some variety.
But if you find that reading the Bible on your own is somewhat challenging then we would like to
encourage you to join one of our weekly reading groups. There is a group in English, Swedish and
one in German but we also have the possibility to add other languages such as Farsi (Persian),
Thai and Romanian. The goal is to make it easy for everyone to read through the weekly Bible
reading.
Reading the entire Bible in a year seems like a daunting task. Don’t be intimidated! Stay focused,
be patient and begin to find your place in the story.
