The Chronological
STUDY

BIBLE

D A I LY R E A D I N G P L A N S
The following plans give you a system for reading
daily through The Chronological Study Bible in one
year or two years. The two-year plan is the same as
the one-year plan, except that you have an additional
day to complete each reading portion. Some portions
are somewhat longer than others because of the
structure of The Chronological Study Bible. In certain
cases a longer Transition is spread over more than one
assignment, as indicated. In some cases two or three
short Transitions are grouped into one assignment.
When starting each Transition, be sure to read the
Transition note at the beginning. The page number
indicates the location of the Transition note.
