How Much Time

By Ronald Bartanen

How much time does it take to read from Genesis to Revelation? If you would read the Bible at standard pulpit speed (slow enough to be heard and understood), reading time would be 71 hours. If you would break that down into minutes and divide it into 365 days you could read the entire Bible, cover to cover, in only 12 minutes a day.

Is this really too much time to spend reading about God? (Source: The Almanac of the Christian World, 1991-1991, p. 225)

A Bible-reading schedule is on the literature table, and posted on our website.
