Hello and welcome to the “Off the Shelf” bible reading plan. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we invite you (and your friends, family, and neighbors) to commit to just 90 days to take both your bible and your spiritual health “Off the Shelf.” One of the best ways to take this seriously is to study God’s Word on your own. To help with that, we invite you to join us over the next 13 weeks in one of two reading plans below.
|THE BIBLE IN 90 DAYS
If you are looking for a challenge, this plan is for you. This plan is designed to walk you through the bible over the course of just three months. That works out to 12 pages of reading each day—a commitment, but certainly manageable, and one that’s well worth making.

|THE BIBLE IN 10 MINUTES, 5 DAYS A WEEK
We created this plan to capture the highlights of Scripture over the next 90 days. While this plan will not cover everything, it will give you a holistic perspective on the story of the bible and what that means for your life today. The plan begins below. We will update this plan each week so check back weekly.
We recognize there are three approaches to the bible:
- It’s just another book.
- It’s an important book.
- It’s the most important book.
Whether you are studying the bible for the first time or have studied it for years, it is important to remember what those who wrote the bible thought of it. So, this week we begin our reading plan by looking at verses from the bible about the bible.
This week’s readings are a little shorter to help you develop a rhythm of reading 5 days a week for the next 13 weeks. As you read each of the passages below, take time to think about what they mean. We recommend jotting down your observations and questions as you read through.
DAY 1 | JOSHUA 1:7-9
DAY 2 | PSALM 119:105 and PSALM 119: 160
DAY 3 | MATTHEW 4:1-4
DAY 4 | MATTHEW 5:17-19
DAY 5 | 2 TIMOTHY 3:14-17
