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.

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.
