  • I've read it 6 times front to back... Each time took about a year. It was "required reading" in my house when we were growing up.

  • Never could. I'd always fall asleep about a paragraph in. And I tried at least a dozen times, starting in different places every time.

  • usually around 2 months to a year depending on what time i read it & which version. KJV took me a lot longer to read than the NIV.

  • Read it to complete it, or read it to understand it?

  • The first time I was 10 and read it in 6 months, about an hour before bed each night.

    As an adult, I've read it front to back 3 times and it took about 3-5 months each time.
