Having developed good habits by reading through the New Testament over a number of months with Community Bible Experience, a suggested next step for the congregation would be to read through the bible in one year.

Nicky Gumbel author of the Alpha course has devised such a system with both audio and written content available in a free-to-download app.

Each day you receive readings from the Psalms or Proverbs, the New and Old Testaments .

Insightful and helpful comments on the bible passages are provided and the actor David Suchet reads from the NIV version.

The whole thing takes about 20 – 25 minutes to do. A youth version available that contains a condensed version of the material; Written content can be received by signing up for a daily email and it is also available in paper book or kindle formats.

The promotional material tells us that it is used worldwide by over three million users.

The current times we live in could be viewed as a means whereby God is providing many of us with a sabbatical to refine and reinforce good habits and rhythms of bible reading.

Why not give it a go!
