This is something I’ve been doing regularly over the past 10 years, and God has taught me so much about Himself and His purposes through this simple practice.
In my research for the new book, I’ve come across a couple blog posts I recommend you read. They present two perspectives on the question, “Should a Christian read the entire Bible?”
Blog Post #1:
Why You Don’t Need to Read the Whole Bible
By Amy Julia Becker
Blog Post #2:
5 Good Reasons to Read the Entire Bible Every Year
By Jeff Robinson
The first post is quite intriguing to me. I encourage you to take time to read not only the post, but the many responses, especially the one by Eliot Lugo-Hernandez, who says “I am sorry but the author is dead wrong.”
If you’re been reading my blog posts for a while, you probably know how I feel about this. I’ve benefited so much by reading the entire Bible. I’m currently following a 2-year Bible reading plan (Old Testament in 2016 and New Testament in 2017). I just finished Ezekiel yesterday. I love engaging God in the Scriptures this way!
But you need to decide for yourself both how, and how much, to read the Word of God.
So do yourself a favor and check out these posts.
