Hello Mike and God's blessings on another year of blogging on the One Year Bible. Staying in the Word through your site and being challenged by your blogs has been a blessing to me, and I look forward to another year of those blessings!

Is there any chance this site could have a handheld version, for mobile devices like phones, pdas, etc? I acquired an HP IPAQ this year and recently downloaded an application that another Christian ministry is using to allow its followers to access web features on their hand-held/wireless devices. When I've opened the your site on my handheld it takes so long to load because it has so many images and links, and then my device locks up. Below is a link to the service I just learned about, don't know if it would be a possibility for the One Year Bible blog. I don't know much about the technology of it all - I think it may be something like an RSS feeder, but I'm really not familiar with the terms or technology involved in it. Perhaps there are other ways of doing it but the link below is one possibility.
Thank you.

Feel free to read if you feel the need


Hi! I'm new to the site in 2008 and look forward to joining the 'crew'. I have read through the whole Bible before but that was a while ago.

I'm a Methodist lay preacher, and I find it's very easy to drop into the habit of studying scripture for preaching rather than personal growth and relationship with God. I've also had a hugely challenging year with sudden and critical illness in my close family. God has been unbelievably gracious and in many ways I've never been more aware of his presence. But regular disciplines like bible-reading have rather gone out the window! I really want to get back on track this year.

I plan to make my daily reading the first thing I do when I sit at my computer each day.

I don't preach all the time! I go to art classes - no discernible talent, but I enjoy it. Armchair sports, especially rugby union and tennis, but I do visit the gym regularly. And I visit a prison not far from where I live. Making friends among lifers has been one of the best things I've done in recent years.

Husband's a motorcycle instructor. Two daughters, one a children's nurse and the other studying maths at university.

Hi!

I just found your site this evening after reading about someone else who was going to attempt reading the Bible in a year, and decided on impulse to join in. My husband and I have been having problems lately and I've been feeling that I need to get in touch with my spiritual self, and figured this is a good place to start.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? No, just a few kid's bible stories as a child.

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008? Not sure - it's just something I feel I need to do for myself. I must be looking for something, but I don't think I'll know what it is until I find it.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? I'm a SAHM to 2 young sons, married to a teacher, and we live in SE Australia

I read the bible right through a number of years ago - it was a challenge I set for myself and it became a chore. However, in 1997 I made a dramatic discovery - that this stuff actually happened! I know it sounds stupid, but ever since Sunday School, the bible had been a collection stories. Suddenly, it became a history as well, and consequently it became relevant and important.
I discovered the One Year Bible Blog a couple of months ago, set it as my home page, and have looked forward to a daily dose ever since. I particularly enjoyed links to Youtube, which have been missing lately. In any case, I hope to stick with the programme throughout 2008, and look forward to a much deeper understanding and a still closer walk with God.
I live with my wife and children in Southern England, and attend a little country chapel which you can learn about at pettchapel.org.uk
I've recommended your site to all my friends, so keep up the good work, and may God bless you.

I am a child off GOD washed in the blood of Jesus - I have read bible thru 8 times and I am looking forward to doing it again with over 4000 new friends every yr. GOD speaks to me and opens my eyes with a new passage Thanks you for this oppertuity

Happy New Year to All.
1. YES; I completed last years OYB journey.
2. Looking forward to delving deeper this year.
3. Favorite Statement: 'Where two or more are gathered in my name, I will be in the midst of them.
4. Interesting fact: The older I get, the less I know!
5. Personal blog is beyond my capability.
Hope to be with you all to see in 2009. :-) Ann

I feel Malachi chap3is going to be my chalange this year Mike McIntyre

the book

HELLO! Guess I reported late? =P

1) Nope. Last year (around mid-year), I did try, but as unfortunate as can be... my computer crashed. As I don't have a bible last year, I couldn't read off-line. Then soon the computer became so stuck that I thought: "Perhaps it's easier to start when I get my computer up and running." And thank God, this computer is finally subdued a few days ago. Whoosh! Just in time!

2)Increasing my knowledge of the bible (and hopefully memorise some of my favourite chapters by next year) so that I can explain biblically to the lost (unfortunately, it includes EVERYONE in my family except for one aunt. Please pray for them! I will be very grateful for everyone's help.).

3)Hmm, I remembered seeing one verse last year, but all I can recall is "Slow to speak, slow to anger, quick to listen". It's the post with a picture full of Post-its writing these three guidances. Is it John? Can anyone confirm?

Anyways, that verse had really helped in controlling my temper. Praise God!

4. Firstly, I'm not baptised yet (domestic problems), althought I've confessed my sins. But somehow I recalled on that day, the preacher who came to my house didn't preach very clearly. Which mean I probably confessed in a confused state? It was only after a while that I searched the web myself and learned the complete truth.

And lastly, I'm living in South-East Asia, Singapore! Hello to my buddies in Europe! =) And anyone from Asia here? Feeling a bit lonely here. XD

5. Nope.

I just found this part of the OYB site last night. I wish had found this last year as I read through for the first time. Reading for the first time and finishing last night and it was awesome reading. I'm sorry I waited until 2007 to do it, but anxious to begin again today. This year I hope to understand more and with the help of this site. I hope to have some questions answered at the time I needed them. Psalms 139 is my favorite book, it left me in awe and God knows everything about me.

No I have not read the bible all the way through, I have read all but a few smaller books.

I look forward to becoming closer with God and His word.

My favorite verse is Psalms 46:10 Be still and know I am God to me this verse says it all.

I maintain the web site for my Church www.fbcbremond.org I am very passionate about the site and have been praying that God will bless it and use it for His glory.

In His Service

Blessed New year!! Hope this year I can remain faithful and complete my daily readings...yes I probably have read the entire Bible but not each and every day. I live in NJ and have had a chalenging year with my grandaughter living with me and my son in turmoil through a divorce. I pray that God can use me in becoming a good example of what Jesus would do every day in these difficult times. Thanks for your faithfulness this year.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before?
Yes

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008?
Following some of the links you provide and studying more in depth

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible?
Book: John Verse: 1 Peter: 5:7

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself?
Granddaughter getting married in 2008

5. Do you have a blog or website link that you want to share with everyone?
No

Hey!
I read the Bible through last year and I am looking forward to reading through again in 2008. God blessed the reading of His word. Thanks Mike for your faithfulness in this ministry!
Beth

I have never read the Bible straight through.

I want to do the one year bible blog so I can have a closer realationship to God.

My favorite verse is Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

I homeschool my 9 year old boy and my 5 year old girl.

I have been married to my husband for 16 years and we live in Oklahoma.

I have read the Bible straight through, and I was with you last year.

I am looking forward to finding new gems I didn't find before and having God speak to me and show me His will.

My favourite book is Proverbs, and my favourite verses are Hebrews 13.5b, Proverbs 3.5-6, and the Virtuous Wife passage in Proverbs 31.

Fun or interesting fact? I don't know what I want to be when I grow up! (I'm 38) I'm a wife, mother, part-time teacher, sermon transcriber, writer, artist, drummer, singer, and crafter. I've been married 18 years and I live in Ohio. I have a 15 year old and a 3 year old, both girls.

I read through the Bible for the first time last year and I am greatly looking forward to doing so again this year.
My favorite verse in the Bible is Psalm 62:5-8.
I am currently attending the University of Oklahoma majoring in Mechanical Engineering and a cadet in the Air Force ROTC corp. I am looking forward to growing closer to God in 2008 and sharing in the journey with all of you.
God Bless

hi Everyone,

I'm from India, I'd been looking for a good walk through the Bible in a year plan .. it'd been my resolution each year for a number of years now,but this year I have intent to actually read through the Bible in a year, so in answer to Q1. No :( I haven't read through the bible yet.

I'm hoping to get closer to God and hear God speak to me through His word as I read through the Bible.

Favourite verse in the Bible .. quite a few .. but for this year I'd have to say Jeremiah 29:11 ...:)

I'm a teacher .. thats neither a fun nor interesting fact .. :)

Looking fwd to reading through the Bible with everyone else on this site :)

Btw Happy New Year everyone.

This will be my first time reading through the entire bible.

I hope to grow closer to God as I read his word.

Favourite verse: Seek he first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you.

I am an IT analyst from Cape Town South Africa, I have 2 kids Daniel and Eden. I have been married to my wife Zelda for 6 years. We love to spend time outdoors-South Africa has beautiful landscapes.

Happy New Year Mike!

Just wanted to let you know we are grateful for all that you do with this ministry.

1. I've read through the Bible just once, last year as part of the OYB group in Denver.
2. I'm looking forward to reading through the Bible again to get more depth and to see more growth of knowledge.
3. I can't narrow it down to a favorite verse just yet. I really enjoyed all of Genesis but there is too much goodness for me to pinpoint it.
4. I love to spend time outdoors and try to get the most out of living in Colorado hiking, climbing, biking, etc. with my beautiful Annie!

I just lke that God created everything and saw that it was good. He created man and woman and saw that it was very good. We are God's treasures even though we don't always believe or act like it.

Thanks again Mike, we love you!

MG

I started this one year bible blog last year 2007. I got in on it, about 4 weeks into the new year, stumbled on it and love it! My goal and New Year's resolution is has been the last several years to be more committed and focused on God and His vision for my life. I would recommend any one to this site. I love it! Thank you Mike for your great teaching and insight to the Bible. It has changed my life!

Yes, I have been reading the Bible through each year like this for quite a number of years. I see it more as a devotional, so I don't get on this site every day. I love the art, worship videos and your comments, Mike. My goal is to know God better and to live a life pleasing to Him, by living a Spirit filled life. It's the hardest thing I do, and fail quite a bit. I'm very blessed, but I'm sure it's a boring life to any one else. Thanks for doing this, Mike

This is my third attempt to read through the bible in a year.I have had to play catch up in the past. This year with God's help I do not want to play catch -up. I constantly think about this site all day, because what I have read is formost in my thoughts during the day. On my lunch break at work I read the passages again in a different bible version and get new insights to what I've read. I use my commentary. I find that during conversations with people I use what I learned in the the reading to witness to the unsaved.
This year I will get up one hour earlier to read before having breakfast and getting ready for work.

I attempted to read the bible daily last year and my daily quest of being consistent each day ended after about 3 months.
My goal is to complete the entire bible through daily reading and to discipline myself in 2008 to gain a closer understanding and personal relationship with our lord Jesus.

One verse I truly enjoy is 1 John 4:4
"Greater is He that is within me, then he that is in the world."

One interesting thing about me is I am currently a student in Biblical studies.

I am truly looking forward to a outstanding 2008 and another opportunity to commit to daily reading of the bible and time shared with Him.

Hello! I signed up in '07 but didn't get very far at all. I have read the Bible in a year before, but it's been many years. I feel it is important to get back into doing that to be a better Christian who can be used by God and also help with my tendency toward discouragement and irritability. My favorite verse is Ps. 73:26. I have an extensive site at evergreenrefuge.org; everyone is welcome to visit and sign my guestbook. Teri in beautiful western WA

Hello I thought I would answer your roll call.

I have never read through the ENTIRE bible in one block of time. But I believe that I have read the entire bible in bits and pieces over the years. I tried in 2007 to follow the daily "One Year Bible Readings" and ended up reading about 50% of them. Several things got in the way, my work schedule, social committments, and just plain laziness. I have asked the Lord for the grace and discipline to start again and I am hopeful this year to complete all of the readings.

The thing I am most looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008 is receiving clarity, wisdom and discernment. To grasp the wisdom of things I have not been able to previously comprehend. To have the eyes of my understanding enlightened, enabling me to overcome obstacles and walk in confidence and victory. And lastly to yield to the Lord and allow the Lord to show me by His Holy Spirit, the difference between what I want according to my carnal nature and what HIS will is; a divine separation of soul and spirit.

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

My favorite books are: Isaiah, Gospel of John, and Romans.
I have many favorite verses but lately I have been holding on to two:

"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living" Proverbs 27:13

"And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord" Luke 1:45

I pray God's grace over all you readers and ask him to strengthen and keep you on this life-changing journey. God Bless you all.

QUESTION: " Will YOU join us on the journey in 2008? "

Well, I started doing this in 2007 but fell behind with the schedule and gave up by February. So I am going to try it again and with God's help I hope to complete what I started this time. My wife and I did go through the whole Bible together in 2007 following a different daily Bible reading plan in our morning devotional time. I think that it is important to have an online Bible study as a witness for Christ and this is the best one going on that I am aware of.

STATEMENT: " The 6 days of creation have main 2 lines of thought by various scholars: 1. they were 6 literal 24 hour days or 2. they were 6 figurative days of an undefined timeframe, which could even be millions of years. "

Concerning the six days of creation I adhere, without question, to the literal 24 hour day interpretation rather than the figurative school of thought which would allow for theistic evolution which I reject as false doctrine and view as a compromise by certain Christians to please the so-called "scientific community." The Bible clearly states that "... And the evening and the morning were the first day ( Genesis 1:5 ), "... And the evening and the morning were the second day ( Genesis 1:8 ), "...And the evening and the morning were the third day ( Genesis 1:13 ),...etc. ( Genesis 1:19, 23, 31 ).

QUESTIONS: " Do you believe that you are made in the image of God? Is this a powerful thing to reflect upon? What might this mean for your life in 2008, knowing that you are made in the image of God? Does this give you a sense of possibility for your life? A sense that you are made for a great purpose in this life?

Yes, I believe that I am CREATED in the image of God. Evolutionists once tried to teach me that I am descended from an ape. Today they tell me that the ape and I share a "common ancestor " without telling me who or what this alleged ancestor was. Yes, the truth of being CREATED in the image of God is a powerful thing to reflect upon. My life has value, meaning and purpose in knowing that God CREATED me for a reason and that He has a plan for my life. This is biblical " human potential ", not the counterfeit humanistic and New Age versions of it. Though obviously man, of himself, has limitations when God is working in a person there is no limit to what God can do with him or her because God Himself is not limited. I know that the key is surrendering my life completely to God but I cannot honestly say that I have done that :( Hopefully before 2008 is over I will have a clearer vision of what God wants to do in me.

QUESTION: "A day of rest. One day a week. If God did this, think we should too? :) "

Absolutely. In fact, I believe that God rested as an example to us and instituted the Sabbath FOR US ( Mark 2:27 ). I believe that God's purpose in resting was to take a break to reflect on the work that He had done and what had been accomplished: " And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day" ( Genesis 1:31 ). I think God wants us to take time out to reflect on His work too which is why I believe it is scriptural to make the Sabbath Day also a day of worshipping God and getting our thoughts focused on Him. That would be difficult to do in the modern fast-paced lifestyles people live today without that day of rest because work for us is time consuming, wearisome and can often become a distraction. Obviously we also need that day off from work to recharge our batteries so to speak because we do get physically tired, unlike God who never grows weary or faint. God didn't rest because He was tired. Prophetically speaking, the Sabbath Day is also a foreshadow of Heaven ( Hebrews 4:4-11 ) for those who die in the Lord and rest from their labours ( Revelation 14:13 ). I think God wants us also to view the Sabbath Day from that perspective as well.

STATEMENT: " One quick note from our readings today about the location of the Garden of Eden. It is believed to have been near where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers meet, in what is now southern Iraq. "

Thank you for supplying the map and taking note of that fact. I find it very interesting that Eden, the cradle of the human civilization, beginning first with Adam, was in what is today the modern nation of Iraq. To me it has much significance in the light of Bible prophecy. Since the U.S. invaded Iraq after 9-11 I have often considered that the Iraq War may be the opening skirmish of the endtime wars spoken of in the Bible, specifically the Battle of GOG and Magog ( Ezekiel 38 & 39 ) and the Battle of Armageddon, which precedes the Second Coming of Jesus Christ who is also called in the Scriptures “ the last Adam " ( 1 Corinthians 15:45 ).

" And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon THE GREAT RIVER EUPHRATES; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I [ Jesus ] come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue ARMAGEDDON. "

- Revelation 16:12-16 ( kjv )

So it was in Eden ( mod. Southern Iraq ) that the human race had it’s beginning with Adam and it may well be there where the end of the world as we know it may have just begun. It was there that Satan in the form of a serpent deceived Adam and Eve and it is from there that the whole world will be deceived at the time of the end.

In Revelation 9:14 we are also told of four fallen angels who are bound in the the Euphrates River who are loosed to slay 1/3 of the world population in the Tribulation Period.. I believe that these are the same angels spoken of in Jude 1:6 who committed fornication in going after strange flesh which I also interpret to be the same “sons of god “ who took to themselves wives of the daughters of men thereby becoming the progenitors of a superhuman race of giants ( Genesis 6:1-4 ). I will comment more on that later when we get to that passage in this study.

Okay, no, I have not read the entire Bible. Lots of it. Bits and pieces, but not the entire book. It was my New Year's resolution last year but I didn't make it very far. I am trying again! My mom, however, DID make it! This time I WILL finish it.

I read the Bible through in 2 years about 20 years ago. I've been using devotional materials for daily Bible study but decided to reread the Bible through this year. Previously I had read a passage in the Old Testament every day and then the New Testament the second year and it was boring but I stuck with it and got through it. I just discovered your site and a different way of doing the readings that I believe I will enjoy more.
My favorite Bible verses are Isa.41:9-10
I am a 60-somthing female who living in southeast USA.
This past summer I completed a goal I set for myself several years ago of traveling to all 50 states. I am also traveling to all the provinces of Canada and have only 2 of them left to visit.
I am looking forward to rereading the Bible through and having 4000 friends with me for the trip.

I am so glad that I came across this as I was looking up "read through the bible in a year" on my computer. 1. I have started to read the Bible through before but never finished. 2. I am looking forward to a closer and deeper relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 3. One of my favorite verses is Romasn 8:38: "neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." 4. I am a retired kindergarten teacher living in Arkansas. 5. I do not have a blog but I have already enjoyed and been inspired by this one!

1. Have you read the entire Bible before?

I have not read the entire bible but I have read the New Testement several times. I've tried reading the whole Bible in one year using another website but never got past, nor finished Deuteronomy. I have read the book of Daniel. I pray that this year I can keep up with the reading by using this blog. I so want to learn more about God and His word.

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008?

I look forward to learning more about God and gaining an understanding of his ways. I have known God all my life and have beleived in and trusted Jesus all my life. There was a few years that I strayed, but I found my way back and now have a deep desire to read His Word and learn as much as I can.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible?

Of the books that I've read I love Matthew. I also like John, Daniel and Revelation.

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself?

I am a DVD and Amazon junkie. My collection of DVD's and VHS tapes is becoming unmanagable but since I can't stand commerical TV they are a life saver to allow me to just veg-out at the end of a long day.

5. Do you have a blog or website link that you want to share with everyone?

I do have a personal website that is still very much under construction: http://www.jtodora.com I work on it in my little-bit of free time and use it mostly to post items for my students. I am a teacher at a local community college. The pages that I post for them are not availble to the general public. I also have web pages on the college website; http://www.northampton.edu/faculty/jTodora/. I thought about, and am still thinking about starting a blog, I just haven't gotten there yet.

What a wonderful blog, so informative and well illustrated.
I have read the bible from cover to cover but confess to skimming through Numbers. I am currently working my way through The Message which puts so much into context.
It is my wish to read through the whole bible during 2008 by means of this blog. I hope to gain a greater understanding of the Word and to grow in my walk with Christ.
I don't know that I have an actual favourite book or verse, though Psalm 139 does inspire me.
I do like to do things that excite and test me, though it gets more difficult as I get on in years. As for a website or blog - not my cup of tea, though I do appreciate those that do produce the better ones!

This is my second attempt at reading through the Bible in a year. With the help of an accountability partner, and 4000 new friends, I hope to accomplish it this year.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before?
Many, many years ago, I was able to read it through over the course of a year. For the past few years though, I have just skipped around from book to book.


2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008?
This year, I have someone doing it with me. I believe that this will keep me on track, and make me complete it easier. There is truly nothing like having an accountability partner to help you through it. I started this site last year, but never got through it.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible?
Revelations 3:20 "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me."

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself?
I am a huddle leader for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I lead the men's mininistry at Calvary Wesleyan Church in Harrington, DE. I have been married for 12 years, and have 3 great children (10, 8, 17 months). I am a social studies specialist for the local school district.

5. Do you have a blog or website link that you want to share with everyone?
No.

First, to the person who asked if the verse about being slow to speak, quick to listen is in John--It is in James 1:19, 20. I have read the Bible through quite a few times before, but never online and never in this translation (NLT). The majority of the times I have read it are in KJV. Among my favorite books are Hebrews, I Peter, and 2 Corinthians. Some of my favorite chapters are Psa 46 and 91, Isa 41 and 43, 2 Cor 1 and 4, John 15, 16, 17, Romans 5-8. I am a nurse and live in the southwest USA.

Hello, I was waiting for the new year to start so that I could join up to this blog. I started reading the OYB a month and a half ago and stumbled upon this website. I learned so much from the discussions here. I was hoping that there would be the opportunity for me to join in and really feel a part of this journey to read and learn more about God.

I have never read the entire Bible. I've read some chapters and a lot of the Psalms but I've never done an in-depth study and reading of the Bible. I am excited to do this and to attain a closer relationship to God.

Thank you for this website and blessings to everyone! I look forward to reading along with you all!

Hi Mike
Your post is really great to inspire people like me from today I'm going to read the Bible every day and I hope I will complete it in the last day of the year and I thank for this wonderful post and I think great to be a member of your post.

1. Several years ago I read through the entire Bible. I have tried since but have not been successful.

2. I'm looking forward to using this blog and reading the entire Bible this year in order to bring me closer to God, to have a better understanding of what God's will is for me, and to worship God more fully.

3. The Psalms. When I read them and think of what they say the majesty of God just comes clearly to the forefront.

4. From Alabama, four children and my first grandchild, a daughter.

5. No blog or website yet.

Mike, many thanks for this blog and especially the resources listed daily. They are great helps in diving deeper into God's word.

Thanks again Mike for your great service through the One Year Bible Blog. It's my new year resolution to read your blog daily and reflect on the scripture and apply it in my life.

I have a block on google, but this is awesome. Do I need to sign up for the e-mail (I tried) to receive the daily blog? Is it included in the e-mail or do I click on the date each day?

Here is my role call :)

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? Yes I have, when I studied at bible school, and since then!

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008?
I am looking forward to meditate on God's word and on what God wants to reveal to me practically in my life through the Bible in 2008.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? I love the book of Philippians - the book of Joy. (Phil 4:4-7)

I am reminded today in Gen 1 that we are created in God's image, so we have a purpose in life to make a difference for God's Kingdom.

Hi Mike
What a blessing this website is!
Here is my role call....
1. I have not read the entire Bible, I have studied various books and read many different parts but have never read from cover to cover.
2. I am looking forward to seeing what the Lord wants to reveal to me, I'm sure it is His prompting that has lead me here.
3. My favorite book is 1Peter and John. 1Peter because it was the first book I studied with CBS and John because I learned the most about myself when I studied it.
4. I can imitate my dog!
5. I do not currently have a blog...but am praying about whether or not it is something I can add to my plate.
Thanks again for this blog...I look forward to all the Lord will reveal in this coming year.
Blessings to you, Tammy

I started this last year and am anxious to read through the ENTIRE Bible and find out what God has to teach me.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? No.

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008? Putting more time into studying the Bible than I have in the past

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? Jer 29:11

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? I love playing and watching most sports.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? No.

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008? I want to prove to myself that I can finish what I start and I want to learn what God has in store for me in 2008.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? I have many, but most recently, Ephesians 6:13-20.

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? I love to read. I have this rule that if I start a book, no matter how bad it is, I finish it. The not so funny thing about that is the Bible is the only book that I have started but not finished. 2008 is the year of new beginnings. If I live to see 2009, I will be able to say that I read the entire Bible in 2008.

5. Do you have a blog or website link that you want to share with everyone?
No

I have read the Bible three times.

I want to learn the Bible in a way to teach others. I would like to begin a Bible study at our local pregnancy center. I also want to know the Bible in a way to teach my children.

Favorite verse: Mark 11:24

I love to read, too. I have three children under three in my home. My twins were born two months early in July 2007. God alone pulled us through. The twins are doing wonderful now, but it is difficult to go to a Bible study because of their needs and my husband's work schedule. I needed a structured study. So, that's how I found this Bible blog.

Anyway, I'm here. As for Christ's genelogy in Matthew. I would recommend reading Francine Rivers books about these five women. Also, her Mark of the Lion series is wonderful for understanding the persecution the 1st century church went through.

Mike, thanks for continuing this Blog and thanks for the all the encouragement here! I've read through the Bible in 1997 and 2000. I participated in your read-thru in 2006 and 2007, but didn't get past March for various reasons. This year I'm going to do it! I'm getting REALLY familiar with Genesis, as I also did a Beth Moore study last year on the Patriarchs! My favorite verse is Romans 8:28. I've done a lot of different Bible Studies since I last read through the Bible and am excited about this year because I know a lot more will fall into place now!

God bless you, Mike, and everyone doing this together!

Susan
