2009: The Bible in One Year and Calvin's Institutes in One Year

One summer while I was in college a number of friends decided to read the Institutes together. I think that me and one young lady were the only ones to complete the work.

Since 2009 marks the 500th birthday of Calvin, I think it would be wise to read the Institutes. I am sure that a lot of people will be doing it and discussing the reading. Here is a link for how to read Calvin in a year.

And, of course, the reading of Scripture is extremely important. I always recommend the McCheyne reading plan for reading the Scriptures in one year. You have four readings a day- and at the end of the year you have read the Old Testament once, the New Testament twice, Psalms and Proverbs twice as well.

Enjoy! Let me know if you are planning on doing either!

I've been going through the Institutes the last few months. Almost done with volume I, too. Interesting reading, to say the least.

The McCheyne program is great. I'd recommend it to anybody looking for a Bible-reading program for the year.

I for one am planning on doing both. Using the McCheyne program and the one Ref21 is supposed to e-mail out.

I am using M'Cheyne for my reading. I try to read additional Psalms if they are not included in the day's reading.
