Reading the Bible

The Bible is considered a classic book. Often times people receive the Bible as a gift, but are overwhelmed at reading such a lengthy book.

For the person who has never read the Bible or is unfamiliar with most of the contents, it can be helpful to get an overview of the main storyline of the Bible.

As you read, it is helpful to ask questions about what you are reading. 

Here are two reading plans that will give the reader an overview of the Bible.

1. The first is a very minimal reading plan that covers some of the basic storyline - Core Bible Stories.
2. The second is an abbreviated reading schedule that covers about 22% of the total Bible. 

Once you have gotten an overview of the bible, you may want to read the Bible in its entirety.
