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!
