Do you want to remove the pressure to keep up with getting through the entire bible in a year? Do you want to read a variety of biblical genres? Do you prefer a continuity by reading the same genre each day of the week?
If you do, than BRPSS is what you need.
Bible Reading Plan for Slackers and Shirkers.
According to the guys at trinity church blog, this plan is unusually helpful because it combines two biblical values which seem to diverge in most bible reading plans. Those two biblical values are discipline and grace.
They argue that the advantage of this plan is that it provides guidance as you read each day but does not put you on an internal guilt trip if you miss a day – you just pick up on the next reading – on the day it happens to be.
Here is an example of the biblical genres you will be reading from throughout the week”
- Sundays – Poetry
- Mondays – Pentateuch (Genesis through Deuteronomy)
- Tuesdays – Old Testament History
- Wednesday – Old Testament History
- Thursday – Old Testament Prophets
- Friday – New Testament History
- Saturday – New Testament Epistles (Letters)
Well, it looks like a great plan and I would be using it in 2012 if I had not yet made up my mind about “everyday in the word” one of the many bible reading plans provided by Crossway ESV Online. If you like to take a closer look at the bible reading plan for slackers and shirkers, please follow the link right here.
I would also like to hear from you. Tell me what bible reading plan you are using in 2012 and why you chose that particular plan. God bless and stay in His word 2012.
Here’s a bible reading plan I created because I needed more “grace”.

Is there a way to modify the bible reading plan for slackers and shirkers to open in some other version of the Bible instead of the ESV? I attempted to modify the pdf file myself and the links quit opening up the online Bible
hey Gary, let me check that out and get back to you, Okay! Thanks
here’s what you can do:
click on “Here” – where it says follow link “Here”
This will take you to a pdf file with all the references.
When you click on a reference, it will take you to biblegateway.com
There you can switch the translation from ESV to any other translation through the drop down feature directly in front of the bible reference.
Hope that helps!
Thanks for sharing… I’ll have to check this one out. I plan to read through the ‘Chronological Bible’ … I’ve used this daily reading plan/Bible twice… I wanted to get a feel for the actual order of events.
Does sound good, very intersting post here. I plan on checking the link out to see what its all about. I do plan on reading the word more this coming year. God Bless 🙂
