Bible Reading Plan


This upcoming year we are going through the M'Cheyne Bible reading plan for our personal readings as a church family. This reading plan was written by a man that didn't live to see his 30th birthday, Robert Murray M'Cheyne. 


The full plan has four chapters per day of reading. If you do all the readings, you will get through the OT once and the NT and Psalms twice in one year. If you want to go at a slower pace (two chapters per day), the plan can be easily done over two years. 



About Robert Murry M'Cheyne:

Robert Murry M’Cheyne was a young pastor (1813-1843) who had great impact in Scotland, leading great prayer revivals in Dundee. His monument reads: “...who died in the thirtieth year of his age and the seventh of his ministry, walking closely with God, an example of the believers in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity, he ceased not day and night to labor and watch for souls, and was honored by his Lord to draw many wanderers out of darkness and to the path of life.” One of the most notable characteristics of the man was the holy consistency of his daily walk.


You could do the full reading program (4 chapters per day, you'll read through the entire OT once and NT + Psalms twice) or half (also called the Carson plan which is 2 chapters per day, you'll read through half the OT and NT + Psalms once; most that do this one, do it again the following year).

Reasons We Love This Plan!

(1) It takes you through the Bible, but with variety in the daily readings.

(2) There is a great devotional/commentary resource - For the Love of God by DA Carson (2 Vols)

(3) It's popularity means that it is often available on Bible reading apps.
