Plan Your 2016 Devotions with a Bible-Reading Calendar

A new year is fast approaching and with it 365 366 (leap year!) opportunities for daily devotions. That makes this the time to plan what you will do in the year ahead. As is the case in so many areas of life, those who plan do. The reason so many of us fail to be diligent in our devotions is that we do not diligently plan.

To that end, we have prepared a selection of Bible-reading calendars that may help you. These beautiful wall calendars display the entire year and show every day’s reading. There are 3 versions available, each of which will guide you through the entire Bible over the course of the year.

  • M’Cheyne One-Year Reading Plan. This classic and much-loved plan provides 4 readings each day, each approximately a chapter in length. In the course of the year you will read the Old Testament once, and the New Testament and Psalms twice. (Combine it with D.A. Carson’s For the Love of God!)
  • Chronological Reading Plan. This plan has one or two daily readings and arranges the Bible in chronological order, proceeding through the Old Testament and then the New in the order the events occurred.
  • The Daily Wisdom Plan. This plan has 4 daily readings: Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. You will read the Psalms twice and the remainder of the Old and New Testaments once.

These calendars are available at our Visual Theology store. You can purchase the posters themselves or, if you prefer, purchase the high-quality file to print it on your own (or at Staples, etc).

(Note: If you know of a Bible-reading plan that would do well in this format, please let us know.)


Our gratitude goes to Jesse at NeuYear for the design inspiration.
