100 Days of Scripture 2012

It's back! Thanks to some wonderful encouragement from my bride, Laura Warnes, my family, and my friends Esther Morris, Richard Hill, and J. Randal Matheny, the 100 Days of Scripture will continue in 2012!

This year we will tackle reading the New Testament from Memorial Day weekend (May 27) thru Labor Day weekend (September 3). A very BIG Thank You goes out to Richard Hill, Steve Higginbotham, and the Miller St. church of Christ on this year's idea!

Below, is the daily schedule for us to follow throughout the summer. This is a schedule that I have put together that will not be according to chronological order, nor from any other 'daily reading' plan. Richard has helped me with the chapter break down and, thru our discussion, will have a little rhyme and reasoning to the schedule. You'll see that we start right off with John's writings and then later keep Luke's writings together (Luke & Acts) as if we are reading volume 1 and volume 2 of his inspired writings. I've also tried to make sure we are not reading too many large books in consecutive order.

Thanks for participating and enjoy God's Word this summer!!

Think upon this: We read thicker novels, biographies, and many other forms of literature without complaining...Why not read our 'thin' New Testaments within 100 days?!

This is great! Thanks for putting this together, Jon. We just finished Exodus this morning and I was wondering which book to start next.

This challenge was given to our congregation this Lord's Day. I have posted it on my blog. I hope that's ok. I am so excited about this. I have been "trying" to read thru the New Testament. I started at the beginning in Matthew & have only gotten to Acts. This is a much better solution to meeting my goal. Thanks for sending this our way. In Christian love, Karen
