Explaining the Bible Reading plan

The Bible reading plan we are promoting at our church this year is a slight modification of the classic M'Cheyne reading plan. His has about four passages each day designed to have you read through the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice. It is broken up into two passages for family reading and two passages for personal reading. It begins with Genesis 1 and Matthew 1 and just moves to the next chapter each day.

Our modification is basically to just use the first two passages for family reading this year, and then next year use the second two passages. If you follow it you will read Genesis through 2 Chronicles, Psalms, and the New Testament this year. Next year you would read all the Wisdom books and Prophets, Psalms, and the New Testament.

A wonderful resource to give great insights into the passages each day is DA Carsons "blog" For the Love of God. It is basically his 2 volume devotional book that follows the M'Cheyne reading plan. He provides reflections on one of the four passages each day.  You can follow it here.

Hope you have a wonderful time reading!
