Bible Reading Plans for 2013

Nathan Bingham:

Many Christians take the beginning of a new year to evaluate their Bible reading habits, and then change or begin a Bible reading plan. For your convenience, we’ve compiled a list of Bible reading plans for you to choose from. Maybe this year you will read more of the Bible each day. Perhaps you’ll slow down your reading and instead spend more time considering what you read.


The Bible Eater: A Plan for Feasting on Christ in 2013

Trent Hunter:

…what should it feel like to hear and read the Bible? Jesus said it was like eating food, and in several places in Scripture we’re given the imagery of eating as a way of getting at the effect of reading the Bible. God fed his people with manna from heaven in order that they might know that “man does not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God,” and believing this is how Jesus persevered in temptation before the start of his public ministry (Deuteronomy 8:3; Matthew 4:4).


The Danger of Theological Novelty

C. Michael Patton:

I have been a theological swinger. In fact, I am only now beginning to graduate from this way of thinking. I am only now beginning to see that this method is itself naive. For a time, I would not read anyone who fit the mold of my conservative evangelical theological culture. I felt that was my duty. I loved to quote those who were less known and exotic. I still have the tendency to belittle (at least in the back of my mind) people who reference and quote theologians, biblical exegetes, and philosophers who are too popular within the evangelical sub-culture. I am ashamed to say that many of my heroes, who inspired me so much before, became to me an embarrassing distant relative who only discredits my “scholarship” and reputation with others whose respect has fueled my swinging habit.
