2020 Scripture Reading Plans

Our recommended plans:

The Bible Reading Plan for Slackers & Shirkers

The basic outline of this plan dates from the time of the Puritans. It is not
tied to particular dates, but to days of the week. It is unique in that it offers
a varied diet by leading you to different parts of Scripture each day while
providing continuity by guiding you to return to the same section on the
same day of the week throughout the year. On Sundays, you read the
books of poetry, the Pentateuch on Mondays, O.T. history on Tuesdays and
Wednesdays, O.T. prophets on Thursdays, N.T. history on Fridays, and N.T.
epistles on Saturdays. Download the plan here.

5x5x5 New Testament Reading Plan

Read through the New Testament in 5 days a week, 5 minutes a day–with
5 ways to dig deeper. This plan helps you to dig into the New Testament
as you read, with exercises to encourage meditation: look for big ideas,
ask questions about the text, think about how you can respond to the text.

The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan

This plan offers special features that will aid you in your journey through
the Bible. You’ll be reading from four separate places in Scripture each
day. You can begin at any point of the year. There are only 25 readings per
month, which allows time to catch up. You can alter the plan by choosing to
read one, two, or three categories in a year, rather than all four. Download
the plan here.

Five-Day Bible Reading Plan

Choose this plan if you’d like more flexibility in your schedule, as you only
have to read five times per week, not every day. You can also choose to
read the entire Bible or just the New Testament. The readings are balanced
to take about the same amount of time each day. Download the plan here.
