Bible reading plans

Read Scripture/The Bible Project: following the story of the Bible a few chapters each day, as well as one Psalm per day to pray through. Since it’s easy to get lost or overwhelmed, each day you come to a new biblical book, there is a short animated video on YouTube about its design and message and what to look for as you read.

Professor Grant Horner's Bible reading system: if you're looking for a good challenge, this read-through has you reading 10 chapters each day, one from each of the ten lists from different areas in Scripture. Check it out!

The Discipleship Journal Bible reading plan: by reading from four seperate places in the Scriptures every day, you should be able to better grasp the unity of the Scriptures, as well as enjoy the variety of four different viewpoints. This plan is scheduled for 25 days out of every month.

52 week Bible reading plan: this plan functions by week instead of by day, drawing a couple chapters each week from the following categories: Epistles, the Law, History, Psalms, Poetry, Prophecy, and the Gospels.


Reading & tools for learning

New City Catechism: Throughout the history of the church, Christians have used catechisms--collections of questions and answers designed for memorization--to teach others the core doctrines of the faith. The New City Catechism is a modern-day resource aimed at reintroducing this ancient method of teaching to Christians today. The short book lays out 52 questions and answers related to God, human nature, sin, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and more. Whether used devotionally, recited orally, or memorized over the course of a year, families, churches, small groups, and Christian school will treasure it as a valuable tool for teaching the core doctrines of the Christian faith to children and adults alike.
