Bible Reading Plans for 2011

Receiving daily intake of the Word of God is vital for the spiritual health of any Christian. One of the ways to create the habit of being in the Word and also to expose yourself to all of the Word of God and not just your favourite portions is by using a Bible Reading Plan.

January 1st marks the beginning of a new year and the beginning of a new decade. It is the perfect time to evaluate your current reading habits and determine to dig deeper into God’s Word during 2011.

Here is a list of Bible Reading Plans that may help:

What Are Your Bible Study Goals For Next Year?

Do you sit down and plan what you will be studying in your Bible study for the upcoming year?

Do you plan which Bible books to study?

Books on Biblical topics to read?

Sermon topics to listen to?

Questions to find answers to?

Do you plan verses to memorize?

What about a Bible reading plan?

Or like most have you not even thought about it?

I usually do some planning and preparing during the last week of the year, although I haven’t felt well and haven’t gotten a round to it yet.

Give some thought to where you are headed in your Bible study just as we would plan ahead for anything else important.  That doesn’t mean you won’t get led off into some other direction sometimes but goals are important.


Here are some Bible reading plans:

  • ESV Daily Bible Passage – I have used this one for years. I get an email/feed of the text (with a click link for audio if online) and I get a podcast of the audio. I have really enjoyed this method. I’m less likely to get distracted with cross references and writing notes when I have the audio going.

  • M’Cheyne Reading Format – All I can say is this is a method that those fond of M’Cheyne really like, I haven’t tried it.

  • Dr Horner’s Bible Reading Plan – This has you reading 10 chapters a day from a variety of books in the Bible. The amount of days rotate but this means that what you are reading together changes also. I have read lots of compliments of this reading system but it is a little too haphazard for me. However, I have done a modified version of reading maybe five of the different areas a day. Works better that way for me.

Bible Reading Plans for 2010

It is time to think about your Bible reading plans for 2010, if you use a Bible reading plan. It is always better to decide on some method before Jan 1st arrives and it is so busy you find yourself trying to start your yearly Bible reading at 11:30 PM so you can go to bed. (Surely very few have done that, right?)

Anyway here are some Bible Reading / Bible Listening Plans to contemplate.

  • ESV Daily Bible Passage – I have used this one this past year. I get an email/feed of the text (with a click link for audio if online) and I get a podcast of the audio. I have really enjoyed this method. I’m less likely to get distracted with cross references and writing notes when I have the audio going.

  • M’Cheyne Reading Format – All I can say is this is a method that those fond of M’Cheyne really like, I haven’t tried it.

  • AIG – Audio only – This is NIV, so might not interest some.

  • Dr Horner’s Bible Reading Plan – This has you reading 10 chapters a day from a variety of books in the Bible. The amount of days rotate but this means that what you are reading together changes also. I have read lots of compliments of this reading system but it is a little too haphazard for me. However, I have done a modified version of reading maybe five of the different areas a day. Works better that way for me.

  • Bible Reading Record – Not a reading plan per se but a check list to mark what has been read.

What methods have you used? Any that I left off?
