Complete Year of this Reading Plan
Up until last month I has posted the reading schedule for the months of March thru November. I have added a new category (Bible Reading) to make it easier to find the reading plans in the future.
As promised I have completed the reading plans for December – February. I have had a few requests for the entire year in one document. I am still working on the other formats. I will produce this reading plan in a couple of formats. I am also in the process of writing a DailyBible.pdb file for the Bible Reader application produced by OliveTree Bible Study Software. This file will be usable on the Bible Reader application for Palm handheld devices and will be free for download once it is complete.
History and Tips for this reading plan
A good friend recommended this schedule. It was published back in 1983 by Fullgrowth Ministries of Tulsa, OK. Here is how that publication recommends you use their schedule:
If you follow this plan devised by Fullgrowth Ministries of Tulsa, Oklahoma, you’ll read the New Testament through twice and the Old Testament once during the next 12 months.
The plan recommends that you do your reading at a specific quiet time each day. If you miss a day, continue with the current day’s reading and catch up when you have extra time. After you finish your day’s reading, mark off that day.
The Old Testament portions are presented as nearly as possible in chronological order. Passages from prophets are included in the historical narrative where they were given, they are often given in a single day’s reading.
You’ll encounter Psalms throughout the year. Frequently, a Psalm that fits a particular passage has been placed with that passage.
As you enter the New Testament, you’ll read Luke and Acts first, then the letters – with periodic passages from other Gospels – and, finally, Revelation. Thus, the story of the life of Christ is constantly related to your Christian life.
I want to add how very important it is that you follow the guidelines given to read the passages for the date given and catch up when you have time. I have tried reading catch up stuff before the current day’s reading after a family crisis took me away from reading for a couple of days and it just didn’t work.
I have provided here the reading for the month of July. The photocopy that I have says that this schedule is copyrighted by Fullgrowth Ministries, but it also says, “feel free to re-print this chart for use in your church, Sunday school, or just to give to friends.” You are my friend if you got this far into this post. I hope this blesses you as much as it has my wife and me. I do plan to post each month’s schedule from the chart before each month begins in the future.
