THE WHOLE STORY: Reading the Bible In A Year
Reading Plan: The scriptures are divided up into sixteen sections and organized in semi˛chronological order. You‘ll read two or three chapters a day and the end of the year you’ll have read the entire bible.
Praying a Psalm: There is a Psalm a day, but rather than just reading it, we encourage you to slowly pray through it, making its words your own. By the end of the year, you’ll have prayed through Psalms 2.5 times.
Watch the Bible Project Videos: These short animated videos will help you grasp the bigger picture of each book. Whenever you come to the next book of the Bible visit the Bible Project website and you’ll find a video specific to that book, there are also video that touch on themes throughout the scripture.

Jesus Storybook Bible Readings + Bible Project Videos + Daily Reading Plan
Jesus Storybook Bible:We’ve aligned the stories of the Jesus Storybook Bible to match the adult reading plan. Use these readings as an opportunity for a family devotional time where you read together and discuss the reading.
Bible Project Videos: There are short animated videos at The Bible Project about each book of the bible that will help you understand the background and over-arching message of each book. In addition there are topical videos that trace specific themes throughout the whole story.
Daily Reading Plan for Adults & Older Kids: The scriptures are divided up into sixteen sections and organized in semi-chronological order. You’ll read two or three chapters a day. By the end of the year (Starting Sept. 18) you’ll have read the entire bible.
Daily Psalm: We’ve also listed one Psalm for each day. Rather than an in-depth study of the Psalm, we encourage you to slowly pray through it, making its words your own. By the end of the year, you’ll have prayed through the book of Psalms 2.5 times.
