2021 5 Day Bible Reading Program

  • Read the entire Bible or just the New Testament in 2021!
  • Chronological reading plan helps the Bible make sense!

This special Bible reading system allows you to read the entire Bible (or just the New Testament) in one year while only reading five times a week.  Five readings a week gives room to catch up or take a day off to focus on other Bible reading or spiritual disciplines, and makes daily Bible reading practical and do-able.  Many people have successfully reached their goal of regular Bible reading using the Schedule and you can too!

The Old Testament readings are placed as chronologically as possible (even the Psalms are read where they belong in Israel’s history when feasible, and this is why some prophets appear to be “out of order”). The only exception is Job, probably the oldest book in the Bible, but placed at the Schedule’s end because it is hard to fit elsewhere. The New Testament readings space the Gospels out throughout the year to keep the reader constantly coming back to the life and teachings of Jesus.

Always do the reading in the order it appears on the Schedule.  For example, if a reading from Chronicles appears before Kings, read from Chronicles first. Check off each day’s reading, and then check off each week in the Weekly Progress Register.  You will be amazed at how soon you are deep into the year and still reading your Bible regularly! God’s blessings rest with those who will read, understand, and live by His Word. May this guide help you to that noble end. “Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path” (Psalms 119:105).

Serenity Prayer – Full Version by Reinhold Neibuhr

God, grant me the Serenity
To accept the things I cannot change…
Courage to change the things I can,
And Wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
Amen.
