Read the whole Bible in 90 days

Back in 2009 a friend of mine at church created a ‘bible in 90 days’ reading plan which a group of us did together. The plan requires that you spend about an hour reading the bible each day (with no days off!) and as such, works best when done as a group in fellowship. I found it a great experience and I’m so glad to say that I have now read the whole bible from cover to cover. I wrote about this experience on this blog here.

This week I read this blog post by Jon Butler about reading the bible in a year and it reminded me of my 90 day challenge.

So, if you’re interested, here is the 90 day reading plan. Note that in week 11 you get to read all 4 gospels (this is a real highlight of this plan). I highly recommend undertaking this with a group of friends so that you can encourage each other (we met in a pub after church each week to share how we were getting on – no guilt trip, just honest conversation!)
