You sit down to read the text of Scripture. When you look at it on the page, it looks like some kind of a strange technical manual with all those large and small numbers that break up the text.Read More...

Defrag Your Bible Reading

Every "Read Through the Bible in a Year" plan fragments the reading of the text by suggesting that you read two chapters from one book and one chapter from another book. That just doesn't make any sense. Nobody reads books that way, except for the Bible.

We can correct this errant way of reading the books of the Bible by reading them with their own internal structures.

How to Defrag

Read the text of Scripture in a new way using The Books of The Bible™ text which is a new edition of Today's New International Version where:

  • Chapter and verse numbers are removed from the text.
  • Each book's natural literary breaks are shown instead.
  • There are no notes, cross references, or section headings in the text.
  • Text is presented in one column rather than two.
  • Books that have historically been divided into parts are restored.
  • Books are presented in an order that gives readers more help in understanding them.

Good News!

  • If you are an average reader (about 250 words a minute), you can read the whole Bible in about 70 hours. That's right, about 70 hours and that 70 hours is broken up into 100 readings for 100 days.
  • You get to break your reading days up any way you choose, 5 days on and 2 days off, 4 days on and 3 days off, or every single day. Just create a way that meets with your busy schedule.

How You Can Accomplish Defraging

Here's how we will help you accomplish this.

  • We will send you a weekly reminder of the next sections to read built on the natural interior structures of the books of the Bible. Each reading is about 45 minutes in length
  • We will provide you a place to chat with others about what you are reading. You don't have to read the Bible by yourself anymore.
  • We can help you become impregnated with the Story of God in 100 days.

What Others Are Saying about The Books of The Bible™

Brian McLaren, author and pastor, has said of this new presentation:

Wow. This looks so smart. This is the wisest new idea I've seen in Bible publishing that I can remember. As an old English major, it makes so much sense. Just having the reflections on chapters and verses in the Preface is worthwhile! I've been a bit of a fanatic about being versus verses for exactly the reasons you address. The perspective on book order and genre make sense. This is a truly significant undertaking.

Scot McKnight ofJesus Creed fame and a professor at North Park University has said:

The Bible is meant to be read-both aloud and privately. There is no Bible more suited to reading the Bible-from the beginning of the book to the end-than The Books of the Bible™. This new approach is actually the original approach, and I love it.

Finally, Gordon Fee, an eminent New Testament Specialist, has said:

At last, a publisher has brought us back to the reality of the first fifteen hundred years of the church: a Bible without numbers. Although the numbers are a great convenience forfinding things, they in fact get in the way of good Bible reading. So in the language Augustine heard many centuries ago, "Take up and read; take up and read!" with heavy emphasis on the read.
