Reading through the Bible is difficult. The Daily Walk Bible will help you complete the journey. Drawing from the rich resources of Walk Thru the Bible’s Daily Walk magazine, The Daily Walk Bible offers a simple daily reading plan and tools to help you complete the journey and see how the Bible fits together.
Each day’s reading includes an overview to give you a bird’s-eye view of the day’s reading, several chapters from the Bible, an Insight offering an interesting fact from the day’s reading, and My Daily Walk—a short devotion to help you reflect on and apply a specific insight from the day’s reading.
Every seventh day offers a pause on the journey as you are invited to Look Back over the readings from the previous week, Look Up to God, and Look Ahead to the reading to come. This edition uses the popular New International Version text.">
I won a copy of The Daily Walk Bible (NIV translation) in a blog giveaway. By chance or not, it arrived on the first day of Lent. Therefore, I jumped right into the middle of Numbers, and was surprised how quickly I was reading Joshua. I read Deuteronomy in ten days. The size of the daily reading varies and they often end mid-verse. I made the decision to read to the end of a section if it spanned two days. The guided approach to the readings did spark several new revelations for me. The commentary was short, yet comprehensive enough to be useful. It was generically Christian; making a point of avoiding polarizing issues. For example, the commentary notes that Sodom and Gomorrah were judged for "their grievous sins." I found that because I did not have a plan for when to do each day's readings, I struggled to stay up to date. I also wanted to spend longer on some of the sections than time allowed. I suggest that the Study Bible format might be better for readers who want to read in depth and without a guided plan or commentary. I saw that The Daily Walk Bible also comes in the NLT and KJV translations. I think if you are looking to read the Bible using a guided plan, this is a good one.
