2018 Bible Reading Plans

Our Bible reading plans for 2018 are the Read the Bible for Life One-Year Chronological Reading Plan and the ESV Outreach Forty-Day Getting Started Plan.

Read the Bible for Life One-Year Chronological Reading Plan

In this one-year plan, the material of the Bible has been organized to flow in chronological order. Since exact dating of some materials or events is not possible, the chronology simply represents an attempt to give you the reader the general flow and development of the Bible’s grand story. Some passages are placed according to topic (e.g., John 1:1–3 in Week 1, Day 2; and many of the psalms). There are six readings for each week to give you space for catching up when needed.

Outreach Forty-Day Getting Started Plan

If you’re new to the Bible and are looking for suggestions on where to start, the forty-day reading plan will help you gain an overall understanding of what the Bible is all about. It will introduce you to some the most important passages of the Bible and it will help you see the big picture of what God has done, and it’s easy to accomplish.

Pick up a free copy of the reading plans at one of our two campuses or download a PDF of Read the Bible for Life Reading Plan and the 40-Day Reading Plan. You can also access the reading plans on our Hickory Grove app.
