Most Christians know they should read God’s word. They understand that it is God’s message to them and He expects them to read it. However, for various reasons, many Christians find this duty a daunting task. It is a mountain they fear they cannot climb. The Bible seems so big. They do not understand how it is organized. The vocabulary and grammar are challenging. Many Christians just give up and never read the Bible—or at least never read it through.
Day 1 Start Genesis 1:1 and finish Genesis 16:16
Day 2 Start Genesis 17:1 and finish Genesis 28:19

This Bible Reading Plan is designed for those that enjoy reading and are strong readers.

Plan 10 Bible Reading 170 days Plan for Beginners.

Bible Reading Plan for Beginners is a plan for reading about 40% of the Bible in 170 days (about six months). In this plan, you will read much of the Old Testament story, every chapter in  Psalms and Proverbs, the two gospels of Mark, and John and several of the New Testament epistles including Romans, Philippians, Titus and others.  You will not read the details of the ceremonial law, lengthy genealogies or difficult prophecies.  Instead of 1,189 chapters (the entire Bible), you will read 513 chapters.

Just to be clear all chapters are an important part of the Bible.  But some portions are better for beginners to read.  Then, you can go to a plan that includes the entire Bible.  At that point, much of it will be familiar to you and the rest will make more sense.
First day: Mark 1-2; Proverbs 1
Second day: Mark 3-4; Psalm 1
Third day: Mark 5; Psalm 2; Romans 1


Plan 11 Bible Reading Chart Plan in 6 Months.

Read through the Bible in 6 Months doing approximately 7 chapters a day. This Classic Bible Reading Plan begins "In the beginning..." at Genesis 1:1 and concludes with the very last in the Book of Revelation. If you have never read your Bible from cover to cover and would like to then this Classic Plan 11 is right for you.

IMPORTANT: Recommend this plan for strong readers that enjoy and can read a lot in one sitting. If you are like me a slower reader would recommend plan 10 or plan 12 or a two year Bible Reading Plans. Please pick a plan that you as an individual will be successful at finishing.

Are you new to the Bible or like me a slower reader or a new and younger Christian, and are eager to survey highlights of the Bible. Beginner’s Bible Reading Plan #12 is a great way to start to have a successful journey with God with reading His Word (the Bible).

What parts of the Bible will I read? Readings are included from every book of the Bible. This plan includes about 4472 key verses out of 31,103 verses in the whole Bible. (That's over 14% or 1/7th of the Bible.)

How were the verses chosen? Passages were chosen that (a) trace the big story of the whole Bible with some of its central themes, (b) reflect the literary and topical diversity of the Bible.”
Example: This plan has 25 readings per month, with about 15 verses per reading.
God creates the world, but humans sin
Genesis 1:1-19................Creation week—Days 1-4 on Creation

Tips on Reading the Bible Daily
1. Start reading the Bible today -- there is no better time, and there's no reason to wait. Set aside a specific time each day. Set your schedule and then stick to it. Mornings are great, but feel free to use any time that works consistently for you.
2. Read the Bible for the sake of learning, not simply to accomplish your next reading. Say a short prayer to God before you begin, asking the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and understanding, then be refreshed by the words you read!
3. Highlight verses, take notes and bookmark your Bible!
