National Bible Week 2011

Pulpit Bible, FindhornThanksgiving week is always National Bible Week, a time to raise awareness of the importance and relevance of the Bible to our nation and to the individuals who live here.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. ~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV)

BLESSED Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning; Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of thy holy Word, we may embrace, and ever hold fast, the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. ~ 1928 Book of Common Prayer, Collect for the Second Sunday in Advent

This year I am reading the English Standard Version chronologically, using one of Bible Gateway’s Bible Reading Plans. I try to vary my Scripture reading to experience a variety of versions and ways of reading. Bible Gateway has a variety of plans (beginning to end, chronological, Old/New Testament daily readings, New Testament in a year, and more). Sometimes I like to read the entire Bible in a year, and other times I prefer to study shorter daily readings in more-depth.

Of course, the Daily Offices (Morning and Evening Prayer) in the Book of Common Prayer, include a Psalm, an Old Testament reading, and a New Testament reading each day.

What is your plan for the reading the Bible regularly?
