Read a book of the Bible every day for a month.

A challenge to dive deep into God’s Word by reading an entire book of the Bible every day for a month (or week).

Bible Book A Day

A Different Kind of Bible Reading Plan

A new year might mean a new Bible reading plan, perhaps even a Bible in one year plan. While there is nothing wrong with those plans, Bible Book A Day offers a different approach — read a smaller book of the Bible every day for an entire month to become really familiar with it. You may even end up unintentionally memorizing part of the book!

Only 15 Minutes A Day

It’s been said that if someone studies a subject for 15 minutes every day, in a year, they will become proficient.

750k Words in the Bible

On average, there are about 750k words in the Bible, depending on the translation.

225 Words per Minute

The average reading speed is about 200–250 words per minute.

3084 Words in Galatians

It should take the average reader about 15 minutes to read the book of Galatians.
