We often hear people ask, “Can I read through the whole Bible in a year?” And the answer is yes! But the length of time it takes you to read through the Bible really isn’t what’s important. What really matters is that you are spending daily, consistent time in God’s Word. For some people, having a Bible with a reading plan can help them stay on track. Having a goal of reading through the Bible in a year might be the motivation they need to push through some of the more difficult passages (yes, like Leviticus). There are lots of good reasons to read through the Bible in a year, but the most important reasons are to gain a better understanding of who God is and of his relationship with us and to experience his full story of salvation. Like any great book, it’s important to read the beginning, middle, and end (yes, even Leviticus). You don’t want to miss out.
If you think a Bible with a year-long Bible-reading plan would be helpful, we have a few ideas for you:
The One Year Bible is the #1–selling reading-plan Bible. And there are a variety of different formats and types so you can pick which one is best for you.
Daily Readings from the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs
The traditional daily reading format includes a passage from the Old Testament, the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs for you to read each day. This daily reading format is also available in large print and Spanish.
The One Year Pray for line of Bibles uses the traditional daily reading format and includes daily prayer prompts that focus on a specific topic to help connect your Scripture reading and prayer time. These are available in The One Year Pray for Life Bible, The One Year Pray for the Persecuted Bible, The One Year Pray for America Bible and The One Year Pray for the Family Bible.
The One Year Bible for Women and The One Year Bible for Men also use the traditional daily reading format. Each day’s reading includes a short devotional that connects a truth from one of the daily Scripture passages to real-life issues men and women face. They can be used for personal or couples’ devotions.
The One Year Bible Expressions adds wide margins and Scripture line art to the traditional daily reading format, allowing plenty of space for notes, art, and more as you creatively interact with the Bible and read through it in a year.
If you want to go on a historical trek through the Bible in a year, the chronological reading format arranges the Bible into 365 daily readings that help you experience the Bible events in the order they actually occurred. It tells God’s story like you’d expect it to be told: from beginning to end.
The One Year Chronological Study Bible uses the chronological reading format to create a more robust experience. The Bible text is also divided into groupings by era using the innovative 14 eras timeline and includes articles and charts to establish context and connection. With study notes introducing each day’s reading and discovery questions following the reading, it allows you to read, reflect on, study, and apply God’s truth as you read through his big story.
