Summer Bible Reading

Summer means time to read my Bible a lot! If you're serious about building your Bible knowledge and growing closer in fellowship and likeness to the God of the Bible, maybe THIS Bible reading plan is for you. It first came to my attention late last year over at Between Two Worlds. Here's the gist of it:
1. Choose a book of the Bible.
2. Read it in its entirety.
3. Repeat #2 twenty times.
4. Repeat this process for all 66 books of the Bible.

Christians often talk about having a Biblical worldview yet most have only a rudimentary knowledge of the Bible. They attempt to build a framework without first gathering the lumber and cement needed to create a solid foundation. The benefits of following this process should therefore be obvious. By fully immersing yourself into the text you’ll come to truly know the text. You’ll deepen your knowledge of the Bible as a whole and be able to put each book into context.

Read the entire post for some practical pointers to get you started. I suppose it would take a few years to read every book of the Bible twenty times, but imagine reading a half-dozen of the shorter New Testament letters twenty times this summer. Imagine the difference it could make in your life . . .
