I know it has been quick but this reading plan is to introduce your children to an overview of the Bible. Some scholars (and lay persons) spend years or even a lifetime on a particular book but that is not the aim of this quick overview. After this reading plan has been completed, you could go through the Bible again with another plan or using a Chronological Bible. However, this is a good plan for getting through the Bible (the main parts) in one year.

To learn more about how we did Bible study you can read through our 4 step process page using the anagram IDEA: Introduce, Dig Deeper, Elaborate and Application.
