I’ve really enjoyed a new Bible playlist on a my iPhone. It took some time to set up but it was worth it. It covers the entire Bible in 150 days (with Proverbs repeating every 30 days — one chapter a day except for the first day, which has two). It includes a variety of areas each day. It is roughly 36 minutes per day, which is about the length of my morning commute.
Each day has:
- 1 chapter of Proverbs
- 1 Psalm
- 4-5 chapters of the Old Testament (I used the chronological version)
- 1-2 chapters of the New Testament (basically in order, though I spread the Gospels out so it has Matthew, then Acts, then some letters, then Mark, then some letters, etc. and ends up with John)
For example, day 1 had chapters 1-9 below, day 2 had 10-17, etc. To state the obvious, you could still enjoy the variety even if you don’t listen to 8-9 chapters in one day.
You can get free audio Bible downloads in a variety of translations at Faith Comes By Hearing. You can also contribute to them to help get the audio Bible out in hundreds of languages around the world. This is vital for people who can’t read. If you ever go on a mission trip be sure to take some of their Proclaimer audio devices.
If you haven’t tried listening to the Bible, give it a try — even if it is just a chapter per day. Redeem your commute, or your workout, or your chores, or whatever else you do!
