Mcheyne Bible Reading Plan

Tracy and I are reading the Mcheyne Bible Reading Plan. It's a famous reading plan that goes through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the Old Testament twice in one year. I made an RSS feed that you can subscribe to in Google Reader or your favorite RSS program: http://www.havenofbliss.com/rss/mcheyne/. D.A. Carson has made a two volume commentary on this bible reading plan that you may read as a supplement called "For The Love Of God." We bought both volumes, but both go through the entire year, so I recommend buying one and then if you make it through, then buy the other. Either way, its a great reference and has been an excellent devotional! We are reading both Volume 1 and Volume 2.

The M'Cheyne reading plan features two "secret" and two "family" readings per day, for a total of four chapters. The family ones are meant to be read with your whole family and the secret are for private devotion. D.A. Carson has a modified version of the plan that covers the same material but spreads it over two years. I recommend Carson's version to anyone who struggles to keep up with Bible-Reading-Plans. I've spent about an hour and a half every day writing notes on the M'Cheyne plan and hope to scan my journals and post them online when I'm done. Cross your fingers! I've also converted the M'Cheyne plan into a text file that you can download here.
