Bible Reading Journal
We recently received a copy of this Bible Reading Journal. It’s designed to help people reach their goal of reading the Bible all the way through.
Wolfgang Publishing provided this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to give a positive review, only an honest one. All opinions are my own.

This Bible Reading Journal divides the Bible into 365 daily readings and gives you half a page of space to write for each day.
Each reading is 2 to 4 chapters of the Bible. For the majority of days, you’ll read from both the Old and New Testaments. Since the Old Testament is much longer there are single days mixed in, 3 to 7 days apart, where you read from just it. These readings won’t always take you the same amount of time since it’s divided by the number of chapters more than the length of the chapters.
Each reading is labeled with a day number instead of a date so you can start at any time. This also makes it easier to keep going if you miss a day or to read on a different schedule than one reading every day.
There is a brief introduction that gives you pointers for reading the Bible through and for using this journal. This includes having a good mindset, giving yourself grace, and finding what works for you.
There is lined space included in the Bible Reading Journal to “take your reading to the next level”. Write something about what you read like thoughts, comments, or prayers. The author likes to write questions because that helps him keep thinking about the passage throughout the day.
I really like the point he makes near the end “Reading the Bible isn’t about perfection. It’s about connection.”
You can read the entire Bible on your own. But this Bible Reading Journal can help you reach that goal by holding you accountable in a nonrigid way. It also encourages you to think about and interact with what you’ve read.
