Reading Through the Bible in a Year

A Woman’s Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year:  A Life-Changing Journey Into the Heart of God
By:  Diane Stortz

Pages:  144

Have you ever tried to read through the entire Bible in a year?  Have you ever used a Bible reading plan to guide you and found that you still could not read through the entire Bible?  I have been there so when I saw Diane Stortz’s book, A Woman’s Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year, I was really interested in finding out if maybe this time there was a guide out there that would get me through the entire Book.  And I have to say that Mrs. Stortz’s guide is not only feasible but it really allows you to read and reflect on the Scriptures you are reading.

Mrs. Stortz divides the readings into 52 weeks and gives a little background on each Scripture subject for the week.  After each reading, there are three questions that are designed to get you to reflect on the Scriptures you just read.  At the end of the book, there are resources for the reader to use as she journeys through the Bible.  I found this section helpful in ascertaining additional materials to help me understand Scripture.  There is also a reading plan checklist at the end of the book for you to keep track.

In sum, I recommend this Bible reading guide to every woman.  If you want to read through the Bible this year this is a simple plan that really emphasizes the reflection and understanding of the Word.

What has your experience been with Bible reading plans?  Feel free to let me know your experiences in the comments below.

Happy ReadingJ

Note:  I have received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for a review.
