New Testament In A Year: 5x5x5

If you are new to the Bible and don’t know where to start, this is a great plan.

You invest 5 minutes a day, 5 times a week, and reflect on 5 questions to help you meditate on the reading. Let’s get started!


One Book At A Time

If you want to read the Bible at your own pace, this plan is for you. Maybe start by reading a few of the shorter books first. Successfully completing a couple of books can build your momentum towards establishing the habit of regular Bible reading.

You can read through the Bible without feeling discouraged when you miss a day or feeling overwhelmed by the pressure of a timeline.

Project 3:45+

Project 3:45+ is an extended version of the New Testament reading plan, Project 3:45. The “Plus” adds a Psalm or Proverb per day (including weekends) and selected readings from the Old Testament five days per week. The beauty of a Bible reading plan is that all the guesswork is removed and there is always a place to start and a sense of direction. For those that really want to add more to their devotional reading time Project 3:45+ offers great options. See past printed Project 3:45 plans by scrolling down.
