Finished my Bible in 90 Days!

Captain's Log, Supplemental

Yup, finished it today! Cool, huh? This is the second time I’ve read through the Bible.

I really liked using the NLT Bible for this, but next time I think I’ll use the TNIV. The different translations helped me notice different things about the Word as I read. Or maybe the Spirit was just prompting me to notice different things.

I also understand now why it’s so important to read through the entire Bible. So many things in the New Testament are so much richer after reading the Old Testament—I understand some of the deeper meanings. Or, again, it might be the Spirit revealing deeper meanings to me. Either way, it’s pretty cool.

The great part about the Bible in 90 Days is that it makes it so much easier to read through the Bible. Granted, it took me more like 150 days, but still ... reading through it this way enabled me to get through the entire Bible twice in two years, whereas the Bible in a Year program always had me dropping it after a few months.

So now, what next? I’m not sure. I’m not really in the mood for a Bible study-type of thing. Maybe I’ll start all over again!


  1. I am sooo envious!! I've never had the discipline to do it. I keep trying though.

  2. wow, that's great to hear Camy! way to go!

  3. Congrats on making it through!
    I've also been noticing recently how understanding things in the Old Testament make the New Testament make so much more sense.... pretty amazing. It's almost as if God planned it that way... :-D We've got a pretty cool God.

  4. Yay!! Very cool. My latest reading sorta stalled after James. James. I mean, I'm almost done! Reading Hebrews is always the best, though.

    Oh, and if you're looking for a cool book (not exactly a study) to tide you over until your next Bible read-through ... maybe give Gayle Erwin's The Jesus Style a read? It changed my life, and brought out even more of that richness from the Word -- seeing things through the lens of who Jesus really was, is, and always will be.

    Just a thought .... ; )

    later, gator!

  5. I just found your blog. I LOVE IT! I write a daily blog called Gorgeous for God, which you may be interested in since YOU are Gorgeous for God.

  6. Good to here. Lots of good hearted information in the bible. If more people read it maybe the world would be a better place.
