UPDATE- 2011 edition coming, but basically you can add a day and it’s done …
NOW IN ENGLISH, ONE CHAPTER EACH WEEKDAY!
You can start any day! Here are the characteristics of the new plan, now translated for you into English:
- Readings are done only on weekdays, beginning January 4.
- One chapter per day takes care of 260 total in the New Testament for the 260 weekdays of 2010 (not counting Jan. 1).
- The readings are well distributed between larger and smaller books, since the plan does not follow the biblical order.
- The four gospels are distributed throughout the year, giving space between them.
- The plan leaves Saturdays and Sundays free to use for other readings, if one wishes, or to catch up on readings missed during the week.
- For the more dedicated, this plan allows for other readings, such as the Old Testament during the year. Many plans are available, such as those offered on this site.
- The plan is published on a single sheet of paper which facilitates its handling and use.
- The PDF format guarantees that the printing comes out right.
- Though not possible with every book, the plan forms groups of books which start on Mondays and end on Fridays to better flow in the reading.
So join me in this reading plan for 2010, as we take the New Testament slowly and carefully, and rejoice in the revelation of God for man and in the knowledge of salvation in Jesus Christ.
Differently from years past, in Brazil we’re encouraging a (sort of) daily Bible reading plan for 2010 that covers only the New Testament. For people who feel overwhelmed by the whole Bible, we’re paring down.
I’ve advised the churches here that much of my teaching, preaching and writing will be based upon these readings. That will also be strongly reflected in my English writing as well.
This works also in hand with a Secret Project I’m considering, in these last days of the year. We’ll see if it comes to light/fruition or not.
