One-Year Bible Blogs
post date: January 3, 2009
The One-Year Bible Blog reports that 8000 people in 55 countries have already signed up. Each day there is a reading from the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs. The blog makes liberal use of pictures and videos to help you understand and apply the biblical text.
Bruce Smith has started the Chronological Bible Blog based on the Chronological Bible from Tyndale House Publishers. The advantage here is that you read the Bible not in textual order but as it happened in history (as much as we can reconstruct) so that while reading 1 Samuel, for instance, you read the psalms tied to specific events in David’s life.
Back in 2002 I challenged the congregation in Oak Park to “get on the Bible Bus” and ride it all the way from Genesis to Revelation. Believe it or not, two weeks ago someone wrote me and said, “I finally finished the Bible bus.” It took that person six years, but it was well worth the effort.
Most of us need some help if we’re going to read through the Bible this year. These two blogs offer a practical way to stay on course so that when December comes, you can say, “I read the whole Bible this year.”
