One of the best spiritual practices I’ve been led to is reading the Bible through once a year–I’m working on my 13th time through right now.  This schedule will help you to read the whole (Catholic!) Bible in one year by spending 10-25 minutes a day in the Word. It’s set up chronologically but gives you a break from the Pentateuch by scattering epistles and other more “fun” books throughout. Give it a shot! One Year Bible Chronological

I used a different schedule for a long time and while I prefer the one above, this might work better for you. It’s organized according to the liturgical year and has the advantage of giving you Gospels and Psalms/Proverbs all year to help you trudge trough Leviticus.  Print it double-sided and fold it up to keep in your Bible. ((Disclaimer: I found this online 10 years ago.  I’ve reformatted and adjusted it, but I’d like to give credit to the original author.  Unfortunately, I can’t find him!  If it’s you, please let me know.))
One Year Bible

In all my time reading the Bible, I’ve spent hours struggling to place things in context and figure out what on earth is going on.  Believe it or not, I’d probably read the Bible all the way through 5 times before I realized that Judah and Israel were two separate kingdoms!  Here’s a timeline of the Bible I put together to help you keep track.  Let me know if you see any errors.

Probably the most exciting paper I ever wrote, this (uber-academic) piece on the Reformation rejection of the Deuterocanon gives the background of the Catholic inclusion of the Deuterocanonical books and the subsequent Protestant rejection.  It’s pretty long and a tough read, but definitely worth it if you want to be able to explain why we’ve got more books.

    Meg, I want to thank you for making available to me the One Year Bible Chronological. I started it on Ash Wednesday. Wow! It’s a gift from God, and you! For some reason it has made me appreciate and understand the Bible so much better. I look forward each day to opening the Bible and reading His Word. I am sure the Holy Spirit has a lot to do with it.

    Your words have touched me and so many others. Keep up your wonderful ministry! May God continue to bless you. Mary Cho

    Awesome! I am going to set this up as a reading plan in Verbum. I’ve read the bible a few times, but it has never been well thought out.
    I discovered your blog through Brandon Vogt. I will be sure to keep checking back.
    Keep up the good work and God Bless!! 🙂

    This is a really cool concept. I like it. Thanks for posting. I do have a question, though: is there a reason you have the chapters and verses broken up as you do? I mean, rather than just reading through one book before reading the next? Also, I don’t know what you mean by “chronologically set up.” Do you mean the books are ordered according to, historically speaking, when they were written? I would like to do something like this, but sort of my own recipe. 🙂 So I’m just trying to figure out how this works.
