Take the 3650 Challenge With Me
December 19, 2011
Last week I asked if you are interested in taking The 3650 Challenge with me—to read or listen to 3,650 chapters of the Bible in 2012. A lot of you said that you are interested, so today I want to launch this plan in earnest.
Through 2012 I plan to use Professor Horner’s Bible Reading System to read the Bible. This system calls for 10 chapters per day, with each chapter being drawn from a different part of the Bible. This means that over the course of 2012 anyone who uses the plan will go through all the Gospels four times, the Pentateuch twice, Paul’s letters 4-5 times each, the Old Testament wisdom literature six times, all the Psalms at least twice, all the Proverbs as well as Acts a dozen times, and all the way through the Old Testament History and Prophetic books about 1.5 times. That is drinking from the fire hose!
I’d like you to do all of this with me. It is going to be a true challenge, but a very worthwhile one. As I asked last time, don’t you think your life would change if you were to read 3,650 chapters of the Bible? Between now and December 31 I’ll give some pointers and provide a list of resources you may find helpful. But for now, let’s work on some coordination.
I think the easiest way to coordinate the group will be through a Facebook Group. I have one ready to go right here: The 3650 Challenge. Simply click on that link and join the group. That will make you aware of updates and give us a place to discuss how we are doing. We will actually begin together on January 1. If you are not on Facebook, stay tuned to the blog and I’ll do occasional updates here as well.
If you are already doing the plan and do not want to start over on January 1, no problem. Join up with us anyway.
