Celebrating the Bible

Every day should be a celebration of the Bible! How? Easy as pie! Reading it, of course! I can’t think of a better way.

I’m putting together materials for a Sunday Bible Celebration and one of the pieces is about how much time it will take to read the Bible. There are different opinions, all from 70 to 77 hours. I guess it depends on if you’re a fast or a slow reader. I have not timed myself, but it could be an interesting activity.

Here is an interesting breakdown:

If you read one verse a day (using 10 seconds daily),
       you will read it in 85 years.

If you read one chapter each Sunday (using 4 minutes a week),
       you will read it in 22 years.

If you read one chapter every day (using 4 minutes daily),
       you will read it in 3 years.

If you read 3 chapters every week day and 5 on Sundays
(using 12 & 20 minutes respectively),
       you will read it in one year.

If you read 7 chapters every day (using 30 minutes daily),
       you will read it in 6 months, that is twice a year.

If you read 20 chapters every day (using 1 hour & 20 minutes daily),
       you will read it in 2 months, that is 6 times a year.

If you read 40 chapters every day (using 2 hours & 40 minutes daily),
      you will read it in a month, that is 12 times a year.

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
