Bible Reading Plans

The reading plans below represent a variety of different approaches to the same goal, developing a life giving habit of daily Bible reading.  Each of the plans take a slightly different approach and therefore require more or less time to read the passages.  There are also additional plans made available as part of the Our Daily Bread and Tabletalk devotionals which PBC is making available in our lobby on Sunday mornings.

The particular plan you choose is less important than your commitment to grow in the regularity of your Bible reading.   As you read, remember that the goal is not to complete the plan but to interact with and grow deeper in the knowledge and love of God as you read His word.

Scripture Union Bible Reading Plan

If you’re newer to walking with Jesus, you’ll grow and change with Discovery.
Each daily, dated reading guides you through prayer, offers a simple explanation of the day’s verses and leaves you with a practical question. You’ll discover (yes, it had to be said) what we’ve learned: God wants to speak into your life, everyday.

Duration: Discovery covers key portions of every book of the Bible in a four-year cycle in 10-15 verses a day. Published 4 times a year, delivered to your home*.

Encounter With God
If you enjoy wrestling with God’s Word you’ll love Encounter with God. Specifically written for believers with a more established background in God’s Word, Encounter with God® leads you through meditations on God’s Word that are more challenging. You’ll find the daily comments to be a thoughtful exposition of the biblical text and we don’t let you off the hook with application. You’ll also find a question or two that will apply the reading insights to daily life.

Duration: You’ll follow a systematic daily Bible reading schedule that will cover the New Testament twice and the Old Testament once in a five year cycle. But if that’s not enough, each issue also includes a “Through the Bible in One Year” feature. Published 4 times a year, each issue contains 3 months of daily Bible reading*.
