Bible Reading

After the West Coast Chinese Christian Conference (WCCCC), below are a few Bible reading plans you might consider for the new year.

Book of Common Prayer calendar

This one-year plan (pdf), for a chapter of the Old Testament and a chapter of the New in the morning, and again a chapter of each in the evening, fits into the daily use of Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer (optimized for mobile phone) according to the historic structure of the Book of Common Prayer (1662). In one year, saying Morning and Evening Prayer daily, you will read through the Psalms once in a month, almost all of the New Testament twice in a year, and most of the Old Testament once in a year.

For those who want to deepen their devotional understanding of Morning and Evening Prayer, a highly detailed commentary (404 pages), from the Rev. Thomas Comber’s multivolume book A Companion to the Temple; or, A help to devotion in the use of the Common Prayer, is available online. Mr Comber wrote this book to help reconcile English dissenting Christians to the Church of England by explaining the biblical worship system of the Book of Common Prayer.

The Navigators also offer three downloadable plans, two for the whole Bible and one for the New Testament only.
