Reading the Bible

      Robert E Smith 4 years ago from Rochester, New York

      My Pastor and friend advised me to read the book, "How To Read The Bible For All Its Worth." It spoke of the familiarity of frequenting passages and reading them even when you do not fully understand. With each reading the verses begin not only to take shape in a tight focus of certain passages but an awareness begins to form of chronology, of genealogy, of the continuity of Scripture. The Bible is one book that is made up of 66 books, written by about 44 different authors from all walks of life, most not even aware of the other author's contribution to what would be a literary impossibility. No other book has had so much diverse compilation and still be without contradiction. I have followed the advise of the book and took one of its reading plans and found all of its benefits showing up in me. Plan 1. Read through in 30 days. (It is not what I personally do. I am not that much of a speed reader, in fact I have learning disabilities so I follow while a recording reads the section of the day to me.) Plan 2. Read through in 2 months (6o days) Plan 3. Read through in 4 months (120 days) Plan 4. Read through in 8 months (240 days) I have done the 4 month plan that means I have to read only 10 chapters per day. It is not as daunting a job as one would think. I have done this 11 times and in 7 days my 12th time through will be complete. I have learned so much and it feels like I am aware of every nook and cranny of Scripture. This was a wonderful article. I enjoyed it immensely. Bob.
