About

Year in the Bible is a plan for reading God’s Word throughout the year. More than just a calendar of readings, its aim is to develop communities around the Bible as we read together. This site also hopes to provide a place to interact and ask questions, as well as offer helpful commentary, reading tips, and articles.

In March 2013 we finished a year in the whole Bible, and now after taking some time to investigate what is next for Year in the Bible, I decided I wanted to slow things down a bit. Reading through the Bible with many of you last year was a fantastic experience, and I know that I learned a great deal. But how often did we wish we had more time to sit and pray over certain passages? We gained much by reading everything–we now have a great breadth of knowledge. But now we’ll change our approach. Our next reading plan will focus on depth.

Rather than read 20 plus chapters a week, we’ll be reading around 20 verses. From June through October 2013 you are invited to read 1 Corinthians.

We will slowly go through Paul’s letter to Corinth and its sixteen chapters that deal with the cross of Jesus Christ, the Lord’s Supper, spiritual gifts, sex, love, resurrection, and more. Given the slower pace and the ability to read such short passages quickly, we will try new ways to keep the Bible in front of us for these months. Given its short length, this reading plan can easily be added on to whatever current plan you may have.

In this last year I heard how helpful it is to have some plan to guide our reading, and I think this will be another enriching time to join others in the church and learn from God in his Word.
