Reading through the whole Bible ought to be a basic discipline for every Christian.  This is the Book we love.  It is our basis for life and godliness.  How can we live in the way God wants if we don’t read it?  This year,  I chose the chronological schedule, and loved it!  Years ago I had read through a printed Chronological Bible but had forgotten how helpful this method was.   Job is read toward the beginning of the year since Job lived...
