A Guided Journey through the Bible That Helps Christians Develop Daily Scripture-Reading Habits
Most Christians recognize the value in regular Bible-reading habits but struggle to find the time or motivation. The ESV Daily Reading Bible: A Guided Journey through God’s Word was designed to encourage readers by helping them walk through the entire Bible at a manageable pace.
This two-year plan assigns readings to weekdays and leaves the weekends free for further study, deeper reflection, or catching up on missed days. Each reading features brief introductions and notes by Greg Gilbert and Alex Duke, 2–3 chapters of Scripture, and space to answer a reflection question—inviting readers to thoughtfully engage with every chapter of the Bible. Believers in all stages of life will find encouragement in this specially designed reading plan that meets them where they are, helping them to stay motivated as they develop new and lasting habits.
