Reading a whole book of the Bible in one sitting is easier, and more rewarding, than you might think. After all, if you received a letter from a friend, you would likely not read it one sentence at a time, but rather the entire letter all at once. The vast majority of New Testament books are letters, written to individuals and church families. They were intended to be read in one sitting. Travis and Wes discuss the power of reading books this way and also read through the book of Philippians from beginning to end.

If you are looking for a way to read through the Bible this year, you might enjoy this Bible Reading Plan, which takes you through one book at a time. Wes’ book, Beyond the Verse was written as he documented his Bible reading following that plan. We hope all of this encourages you to try reading through whole books of the Bible a little more often.
