Curiosity and about 30 minutes a day required. This reading plan covers the entire Bible in a year, but only the Old Testament passages are in chronological order. The New Testament chapters are all over the place, as they fit in some way with the OT passages. This plan would probably be enjoyed more by people who have previously read through the Bible in a more consecutive way and have some context to begin with. You can find different plans for a more linear reading over on the right.

~ Four or Five Chapters a Day, Six Days a Week ~
It's six days a week of four to five chapters per day (occasionally fewer). All the New Testament (NT) passages relate in some way to the Old Testament (OT) reading of the day. Sometimes they include direct quotes, other times they provide appplication, context, depth, or contrast. You can just explore and enjoy each passage for itself, or look for how each NT passage relates to the OT passage of the day.

~ Time Off to Reflect/Connect on Sundays ~
On Sundays no reading is assigned, so you can use that day to catch up or reflect, pray, ponder and connect with other readers to share favorite passages or insights from the week. Ask a friend or two to read along with you in 2016 so you can keep each other accountable to finish! A weekly planned check-in can help to achieve your goal.

~ Ends Early ~
The read-through of the entire Bible ends already on December 7th, before the busy end-of-year holiday time arrives. Readings from December 8th onwards are optional meditation verses on how Jesus fulfilled prophecies, which are duplicate passages from earlier in the year.
