Read The Bible in a Year?
Peter Fournier and Catherine Fournier
One well deserved comment or criticism of Catholics by Protestants is that we tend not to 'know our Bible.' Not only does this leave us at a disadvantage when it comes to discussing our faith with others, it means that we are missing a great treasure of teaching, and tradition. The Bible is the history of God's people - who wouldn't like to know 'where we came from?' Yet the whole Bible is a daunting prospect.
A reader's question sent me looking for a great site and a great idea. "Would you know a place on the internet that offers a "read in a year" calendar for the Bible?"
I found several resources, of varying useability.
