Bible in 90 Days

Bible in 90 Days- join in July 2010


I am very excited that the Bible in 90 Days program is starting up again. If you haven't signed up yet, it's not too late to join! The reading starts today but there are also two grace days built into the schedule.

Reading the Bible through so quickly is challenging but very rewarding. Sometimes it's difficult to read the Bible for 45 minutes to an hour each day, especially during some of the "hard" books like Leviticus and Numbers. But reading so quickly gave me a new perspective on how God has worked throughout history. It shows how God has had His hand guiding His people. It's really amazing to see that the God who created and taught Adam is the same God who protected His people during the 40 years of wandering. That is also the same God who guided David and the judges during Israel's rocky history.

I'm not reading the entire Bible during this 90 day period but I am going to be doing some intense Bible study. I have a list of questions from my last read through and I want to try to answer some of those during this 90 day challenge. I'm also looking forward to the opportunity of praying for and encouraging some of the participants.

I cannot recommend this challenge enough. If you have never read through the entire Bible, please prayerfully consider joining. It will be a worthwhile experience!

Cassandra,

You read the entire bible in 90 days? I don't think I could do this. I am currently attempting to read my entire bible by the end of this year. I've read all of the new testament with the exception of Revelation, and I'm now reading Proverbs in the old testament. I read SO slow that I don't think I could effectively do this challenge.

Hello to my fellow mentors! :)

Mrs. Lady Sofia - I did indeed read the entire Bible in 90 days earlier this year. It was an experience! Some days went really well (Genesis, Exodus, the Gospels, most of the New Testament) and other days were really hard (Leviticus!, some of the long chapters about all the different Israelite kings). But it was worth all the time and effort I put into it.

You can read the rest of the Bible by the end of this year! I think it's wonderful that you're trying to complete it. I love reading Proverbs. It's such a great book.

I really don't think it's important exactly how fast we read through the Bible, just that we do so at least once. I think it's important to see some of the larger themes instead of getting caught up in the nitty gritty detail.
