Bible Plans

Do you follow a plan when it comes to reading the Bible? Do you want to? Do you need to? It's not necessary by any means. But some find it beneficial. Here are some places to go if you want to set up a plan for your reading.

Here are a few resources I've found:

Here are a few offered by the ESV publishers

Read Through the Bible in a Year

Eight feeds are available. Extended descriptions of each feed... To see the text, we suggest that you use an "RSS Aggregator" program (list of aggregators).


All the ESV Bible reading plans are now available as free podcasts. You don’t need to do anything special if you’re already subscribed: the MP3s will show up automatically for you.
To subscribe in iTunes, here’s what to do:

1. Go to the ESV Reading Plans page.
2. Right-click (Ctrl-click on a Mac) the “RSS” link of the feed you want.
3. Choose “Copy Link Location” or “Copy Shortcut.”
4. Start iTunes.
5. Choose Advanced > Subscribe to Podcast
6. Paste the URL from step three into the box.
7. Click OK.

The audio is by David Cochran Heath and is available for purchase and for streaming at the ESV Online Study Bible.
Here are some guides offered by the ministry Back to the Bible.

Zondervan offers a variety of plans--at least a dozen or more--on three different levels: beginners, intermediate, and advanced. (For example: 180 Day Guided Tour to the Bible, etc.)

While you can choose to receive this plan's readings by email, you can also choose to print this plan. (And/or download it as a pdf file) What is unique about this site is that it offers different categories (or foodgroups if you've read Kroll's book) of Bible reading for each day:

Sunday = Epistles
Monday = The Law
Tuesday = History
Wednesday = Psalms
Thursday = Poetry
Friday = Prophecy
Saturday = Gospels
