Glad I'm Not the Only One

Justin Taylor had this to say yesterday:

"For what it's worth, I'll make a confession: I'm one of those people who has never successfully made it through a one-year Bible reading plan. This year I'm going to try to incorporate listening to the Bible as part of my daily reading."

Glad to know I'm not the only one who is in this situation. I'm not a big resolution maker, but I am making it my goal to make it through this year.

I actually started a few months back, and made good progress by listening during my trip to Dallas. I've made it as far as Jeremiah 31 so far, and I'm pretty sure if I can make it out of the OT I'll be home free.

I'm listening as part of my reading, too.

Jeremiah is my second favourite OT book, following Isaiah.

You're definitely not alone. Maybe this year I'll make it.

The best way to read more scripture is to consistently get up at 4:00 a.m. to do so - even (especially) on the weekends. If you can do it for three weeks, you will be hooked, and find yourself reading a lot more holy writ than you ever thought possible - and you will want to be in bed by nine at the latest every night too, but that isn't a bad thing... ;-)

I actually read completely through last year using M'Cheyne's reading plan -- first time i ever read completely through, and even read Psalms and the NT twice!

This year I am rereading the plan but going over it with my wife and using D.A. Carson's devotionals (Love of God Pt. I & II).

Buggy: My favorite book following Isaiah in the OT is a toss-up between Daniel and Jonah.

For books that come before Isaiah, I'd have to say Genesis in the Pentateuch, Psalms in the poetical books, and pretty much everything from the historical stuff.
