  • I have done it a few times and anywhere from 9 months to a year. I usually use a schedule that is already made up and read some each day and then check it off on the schedule.

  • 35 years...LOL. I've listened to audio of it - because reading it from start to finish bored me to tears - which only took a few weeks. Now I read it as reference only.

  • We reread our Bible in weekly study, we started Genesis in January and will only be up to Joshua by December, so when we finish we just start over again. but as Shaneagle says you can read it in a years time by reading a set amount each day.

  • It takes me a year to go through the Bible. I used to have a chronological Bible, but for the last year I have been reading the One Year Bible. It has a section from the OT, the NT a psalm and a proverb. It is a nice balance.

    I thought it would be confusing at first going back and forth, but it actually is cool. If I end up getting a geneaolgy in the OT I still can read something really awesome in the NT. I love it.
