The Bible in 90 Days Challenge
The goal is to read through the entire Bible in 90 days, starting today and ending October 2. I'll be tweaking it a bit (stop laughing!) as we are going to LISTEN through the Bible, using the NKJV Word of Promise Complete Audio Bible by Thomas Nelson.
This audio Bible is 97 1/2 hours long... which I calculated to be 65 minutes a day. So, instead of following exactly the schedule laid out, we'll listen to 65 minutes and finish up the chapter. Today, that meant we listened to Genesis 1-14, which was almost 69 minutes. The official schedule would have had us reading Genesis 15-16 too, but I figure it will all work out (and those are fairly short chapters).
The idea in this reading is to go through the Bible at a pretty fast clip, getting the big picture -- a broad overview. It isn't meant to be an in-depth study by any means.
I think it is going to be really fascinating to see what the next three months bring.
