I’ll lay out the steps to comfortably read the entire Bible in less than 150 days in this case study. I know you want to. I know you’ve started and stopped (like me) more times than Leviticus has rules. And now you think it’s impossible or at least way too hard. Or maybe it’s just for people more holy than you.

Stop that nonsense!

I was a 53-year-old Christian and never read the Bible from beginning to end. That admission is embarrassing. I tried many times but always got bogged down somewhere between Deuteronomy and 2 Samuel.

In this case study, I’ll give you:

  • a unique plan
  • a definitive strategy
  • a few simple hacks
  • a way to track your progress.

This plan builds a habit you don’t want to break, and you might read the entire Bible in less than 150 days. To encourage you, I read the Bible in 107 days. 150 will be a cakewalk for you if you use this system.

I’ll also give you a bonus hack, but I don’t want you to use it.

Are you ready to get started?

Strategies for Reading Through the Bible in 150 Days or Less

I didn’t have all of these strategies when I started reading the Bible every day. Through trial and error, I adopted a few along the way. My pain is your gain.

Let’s go.

Make a SMART Goal to Read the Entire Bible

SMART goals are not fuzzy. Fuzzy goals are daydreams pulled along by a wet noodle. You inch forward, but at the first setback, the noodle snaps, and your goal evaporates like steam from a pasta pot. You need more than a wet noodle.
