I recently came across Prof. Grant Horner’s Bible Reading System in this post by Nathan over at Cal.vini.St. Basically, this system divides the Bible into 10 lists and you read one chapter from each list each day. Dr. Horner says “The goal of this system is simple, and twofold: To know scripture, and to love and obey God more!”
I often become convicted of the fact that I don’t read my Bible enough. I am reading it almost on a daily basis (most of the time) but often it is not just to read it. I am usually preparing for a class that I am teaching. There is an abundance of Bible reading systems available and I have tried some of them before. I have never stuck with one for very long because I get bored with the system and want some variety. Also, sometimes I get distracted with reading other books and spend all (or most) my available reading time on them. Please don’t misunderstand me, I don’t think it is wrong to read other books as long as you are not reading something inappropriate.
So, I have decided give Prof. Grant Horner’s Bible Reading System a try. I just completed Day 5. I can so that so far it has gone well. I can recommend that you give it a try. Dr. Horner also has a Facebook page where you can also check out the system and read comments by people who are using the system.
If you give it a try, let me know how it works for you.
