In January I started reading a 90 day plan for the Bible. It puts you through the entire testament in 88 days, a pretty hurried pace. About 2 weeks into it, I modified the experiment even more and decided to not follow my paper calender and regular bible. I am only reading scripture using either my phone or iPad. This includes research for school, some sermon preparation, my more prayerful reading times and the previously mentioned 90 days.
I am halfway through, and I can say that the experiment is interesting. It is quicker to underline things electronically, it just takes a finger tap. But I have a harder time going between passages when I think I see a connection. One of my favorite reasons for reading large portions of scripture is placing these connections together.
I am doing this because the way people are reading the Bible is changing. It has to be understood, especially when we think about what it would mean to be a bookless society (I don't think this will ever happen), but how does it change when people are only reading scripture on a screen in worship?
So it is just an experiment. In April I can offer my thoughts on the whole enterprise.
All this said, how do you read scripture?
