New Year’s Resolution: Read the Bible in a Year

“The One Year Bible guides readers through God’s Word with daily readings from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs.”

By Isabella Graunke

My husband recently suggested that we try reading the Bible in a year together. While there’s no right or wrong time to start a Bible reading plan, the start of the year always feels like a good time to put new goals and plans into place. If you’ve been contemplating reading the Bible in a year too, take this January as an opportunity to put your plan into action. Here’s a list of One Year products on sale now:

The One Year Bible NLT

The One Year Bible, which helps you read the entire Bible in one year in as little as 15 minutes a day, has a fresh, new look. The One Year Bible guides readers through God’s Word with daily readings from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. This edition features the clear and understandable New Living Translation.


The One Year Pray for the Persecuted Bible

With The One Year Pray for the Persecuted Bible, you will read through the whole Bible in one year as you also pray daily for believers around the world who are suffering because of their faith. This Bible provides the structure to help you read God’s life-changing Word in the trusted New Living Translation in just 15 minutes a day. It includes daily prayer prompts to help you intercede for people who are persecuted because of their faith in Jesus Christ and full-color designed pages that feature the stories of six persecuted Christians who boldly witness for Christ amid great risk and adversity. A full-color fold-out map highlights the restricted nations and hostile areas where The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) serves persecuted Christians. This Bible also includes short summaries of each month’s prayer theme as well as photos from VOM’s work around the world. These insert pages will inspire you to a deeper commitment to Christ and help draw you into fellowship with persecuted believers. The One Year Pray for the Persecuted

Bible will help you apply the principles of God’s unchanging Word to effective prayer.


The One Year Chronological Bible NLT

The One Year Chronological Bible offers a fascinating way to read through the Bible in one year! Gain a better understanding of the order of biblical events and the historical context in which they unfolded. The entire Bible text—books, chapters, and even verses—is arranged in the order the events actually happened. Prophetic books are interwoven with the historical accounts they accompanied. Psalms follow the events about which they were written. Proverbs are placed in the time they were compiled. The life of Christ is woven into one moving story. And Paul’s letters to the young churches in the first century are integrated into the book of Acts. The New Living Translation is an authoritative Bible translation, rendered faithfully into today’s English from the ancient texts by 90 leading Bible scholars. The NLT’s scholarship and clarity breathe life into even the most difficult-to-understand Bible passages—but even more powerful are stories of how people’s lives are changing as the words speak directly to their hearts. That’s why we call it “The Truth Made Clear.”
