Through the Bible

Today is the 30th anniversary of the first time I completed reading the Bible from cover to cover.

Okay, it was the Living Bible, so you can decide for yourself whether it counts as legitimate. I was only 12 years old, so you might want to give me a break.

It is also my grandfather’s 114th birthday, though he has now been reposed for over 43 years, so we didn’t have a party.

I started my journey through the Taylor paraphrase of the Holy Writ on my grandmother’s birthday (March 20) and finish on my grandfather’s. I don’t remember that I particularly intended it that way, but it has made it easy to remember ever since.

    How many times have you read it since then, and in what versions?

    I’ve only read it the once, in cover-to-cover fashion. I would think that I have read every book at least once since then, most certainly in NKJV, my translation of choice since it was first released.

    I have been thinking it might be time to do a complete reading again.
