The year 2012 is only days away and, with it, Ken and I will be restarting our annual practice of reading-through-the-Bible-in-a-year. This will mark our fifth year of reading through the entire Bible in 12 months and we are amazed at all the insights God has given us through this wonderful Bible-reading habit (listen to Ken and I talk about it on a recent radio program). This past year, we used a chronological reading plan, and Ken and I both agree it really made the redemption story come alive in a fresh way.

We challenge you to join with us in 2012 by committing to use the chronological reading plan I've posted on my radio page. Should you decide to take the challenge, let me know either by posting a message on my radio page or Joni's Blog – this way, Ken and I can be praying for you as together we get deeper into God's Word in 2012!

I plan to do this in 2013. I have never read the Bible through and think chronological will bring the Bible to life in a way that it will help me to know the order of things. I like order.

I heard you talk about this on the radio yesterday. I have never read through the Bible Chronologicaly. It gives me hope to read the Bible again. Thanks for the offer to read through with you.

Thank you for this amazing plan of reading the Bible. I have read and studied the Bible for years and yet never knew the lay in this way. It is truly a blessing and rewarding to read this way.

Thank you for posting the Chronological Bible-in-a Year Reading Schedule. I just heard from a friend today that you had it on your web site. I now can sit down each morning and start out my day with reading it in the proper order. Again, thanks.

I just wanted to let you know that using this chronological reading plan was the boost I needed. I'm having a super time reading each day early in the morning. Thank you Joni and Ken for being such an encouragement for me.

Do you have a plan to read the Bible through chronilogically in a year or where can I purchase one. I heard the offer on a recent program. Thank you very much.

I live in Gold Coast, Australia and often listen to your podcasts. Heard your recent radio program on reading the bible in a year and the challenge of doing it with your husband. My husband Ben and I thought it would be a great to do this together so we started following your reading schedule this week and we are loving it. Please pray for us because every time we have tried to start something like this before we soon get overwhelmed by our daily activities and we never finish. It would be such a blessing and joy if this time it would be different and we accomplish what we set out to do in this area. I just thank the Lord for your life and the inspiration you are to me. Blessings Elizabeth
