This plan is for those of you who are new to reading the Bible or have limited time. You will usually read one chapter per day.

It will take you a little more than a year to read the main story line of the Old Testament and some other important chapters.

The Medium Plan covers two chapters per day. With the Complete Plan, you would read about three chapters daily and finish the entire bible in a year.

Since we’re studying in the order of writing, Job follows Genesis.
