How long does it take to read your Bible in a year?

bibleThat is like asking, “How much are your $3 ice-creams?” If you read your Bible in a year, that is how long it will take!

If you are planning to read your Bible through in 2014, then there are a load of plans to follow. You can get several at Justin Taylor’s blog. So, I won’t bore you with another list of Bible reading plans.

Justin points to a website that gives you the details on how many verses/words you will read in a session. At 200 words a minutes, and about 10.7 minutes a day, you will finish reading the Bible in 3922.9 minutes, or 65 hours, 22 minutes, 54 seconds. That makes it 2 days, 17 hours, 22 minutes, 54 seconds if you read it non-stop from beginning to end! Not so bad considering a year of 365 days!

If you read at 250 words per minute (wpm), you will complete it in 2 days, 4 hours, 18 minutes, 16 seconds.

Here comes the kicker: if you can read at 400wpm, you will complete reading your Bible in 1 day, 8 hours, 41 minutes, 22 seconds!

During that time you will have read around 31243 verses and depending on the translation, many tons of words!This is definitely do-able, isn’t it? Then get planning!
