Reading the Bible Through

"When was the last time you read the Bible from cover to cover?

When that question was asked of people across the country in a 2013 survey. . .one in five American adults said they’ve read the Bible from start to finish!

Martin Luther wrote in 1532: “For some years now, I have read through the Bible twice every year. If you picture the Bible to be a mighty tree and every word a little branch, I have shaken everyone one of those branches because I wanted to know what it was and what it meant.”

John Quincy Adams, our sixth President, wrote his son: ". . .in reading the Bible, remember that it is for the purpose of making you wiser and more virtuous. I have myself, for many years, made it a practice to read through the Bible once every year.”

Today, hundreds of Bible apps make reading through the Bible easily accessible!

Read the Bible—all the way through! Discover its timeless treasure!"
