The plan to read the Bible in a year in 2009

Just posted this on Facebook:

A recent status update I posted triggered a series of comments about reading the Bible in a year in 2009. It indicated to me that many of my Facebook friends are planning to do it too (or did it last year). Here's the conversation.

After some thought, I've decided to go with the Bible reading plan my friend Peter Mead just set up at www.thedailyreader.net.

Here's why I'm going with this plan:

(1) It includes both the Old and New Testament every day
(2) The reading order is fresh. Eg, Old Testament to be read in the "Hebrew" order (different from the order in our English Bibles) - the order Jesus would have used
(3) Peter Mead will be offering some guidance and insights throughout the year (at www.thedailyreader.net). I respect Peter's thoughts b/c his Bible knowledge is deep (although relatively young, he happens to hold a doctorate in theology/Bible) and he is not just a 'hearer' but a 'doer' (James 1:22); he lives his life for God and also happens to be a full time OMer (www.OM.org). Peter also runs www.biblicalpreaching.net.
(4) There is a welcome degree of togetherness in doing the same plan others are doing at the same time.

Here goes!
