It is with a sense of great accomplishment and gratefulness that I comment today. A year ago I started reading the One Year Bible blog without much hope of finishing, because of the times I'd failed before. Although I skipped out most of Ezekiel because I got really behind at one stage, I got through the rest. YAY!

Knowing that there was a community of readers doing this with me, and being able to interact with you all through comments was a key ingredient for me. Thank you to all who posted.

Mike, thank you so much. Your commitment to this blog is admirable, and your humility is inspiring. I think you must be one of Jesus' heros when I see how many lives you are touching daily through your obedience to Him.

Having read the whole Bible now, I have a much better idea of God as the beginning and the end, God working through history, God unravelling His love-plan and God reaching out to us. I have a much better understanding of Israel and the Jewish nation, and how they are a precious part of the fact that I am a Christian today. Praise You, Lord for drawing near to us. Praise You for The Message.

This is my Second year completing the one year bible through the New Living Translation of the Bible. Next year i will be reading from the NKJV Bible.

i really enjoyed the book of Isaiah, Psalms, proverbs, gospel of john, Ephesians, Galatians, Revelation, Jeremiah, Hosea,



Although I missed quite a portion of this one year bible schedule due to my hospitalisation, I do enjoy very much reading the bible with Mike and other God-fearing brothers and sisters. Thank you Mike for your hard work. I would like to commit myself to both the OYB and the Chronological Bible in 2012. It needs not only discipline. It also needs prayers.

Although I have read the Bible through several times, and am finishing it up again today, I am amazed at the new things that I read that are new and refreshing to me. I know that I have read or heard all of the word before but I get some new knowlege everythime I read it. So tomorrow I will start over again looking for some more gems in the word.

Though I have read the bible a few times on my own, this process of reading, getting Mike's insight from the blog and sharing comments has helped to deepen the message and compare my reading for the day with others. I too would thank Mike for his thoughtful blog and post of music and links. Your research and honesty has made this a meaningful process. I am going to read the Chronological Bible in 2012 and look forward to new perspective on the scripture. The river life image that is in Ezekiel and Revelations and which literally touches almost every book of the bible helped me to realize that this river does not just exist when Jesus returns, but it is the water that we can choose whenever we wish. What did the angel say "Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life." I think sometimes I choose to be thirsty instead of drinking of the river of life. Blessings to everyone in the new year.

I really loved this experience, i have read the whole bible before but than only cris cros. But with this program it opend my eyes to whole new things. I loved the experience with every day a psalm and a new proverb. With this bible reading wich i dowloaded on paper and put i. My bible i also bought a book from tyndall with on every day passage some questions and explanations.
Next i will try to read it in a other translation, lot of people told me that you will see other things.

Thank you mike


I did not read with you in 2011, but am looking forward to starting the New Year off right! I have challenged my Jail Ministry inmates to begin reading the bible through in the next year and was looking up information to hand out and came across your blogs. I'm not sure if we will do the Chronological or the One Year Plan yet. I am excited. Thank you for your dedication to this blog. Praise God for pouring His Spirit out on all flesh in these latter days. God Bless you!

I started this blog back in July so still have 1/2 a year left to go to complete reading through the whole Bible. For the first time in my life, I'm excited to read the next day's reading. I have to stop myself from reading ahead. :-) Thanks Mike for all your hardwork and thanks to everyone who comments. I love hearing how God is impacting lives. God Bless! Looking forward to continuing this reading in 2012!!

Thank you Mike for this blog. I started in 2010. I nearly quit when I got behind. Then I followed your advice to continue on the day I could read with you. That helped me in finishing for the year 2010 and 2011.

What strike me most is the promise of God through the old testament fulfilled in the New Testament with the preparation of John the Baptist for the coming of Jesus the Messiah. Reading the Old Testament and the New Testament together with your blog was helpful in my understanding of God's word.

Again many thanks to you and the brothers and sisters who share their experiences in their comments.

Looking forward to read with everybody in 2012.

Happy New Year to all.

Thank you Mike for your blog, I am 74 y/o and have never read the whole Bible before. The Bible has blessed and comforted me in this the most difficult year of my life; my only son was killed in a traffic accident. Many scriptures blessed me, mainly the Psalms, but I also learned of God's steadfastness and His love sustained me. It would have been a more difficult time without the Bible blog--Thank you. Anita

Well Mike, I have loved and cherished this one year bible blog for probably 6 or 7 years now..I love it! I may not come on daily and respond but my thoughts and prayers always go out to you and I am inspired in the way God has used you for His ministry! God bless you and I too am excited to start a new year with you guys..I got blessed with a new bible for Christmas, I got a Quest NIV bible with inserts on more history into the Bible which is going to be fun. Well, I pray everyone blessings and pray that this site be multiplied to more and more people be blessed in this new year! God Bless!~deedee

Just finished my first time reading the entire bible and had to say thanks for your blog which made it possible. Already looking forward to my second time through in 2012 and your daily encouragement and commentary.
