John MacArthur In-Depth Plan

John MacArthur’s reading plan consists of going through the Old Testament once a year coupled with a longer intense study of the New Testament. MacArthur goes through the NT in an in-depth manner by focusing on one whole chapter or large segment at a time. This is done by taking one shorter book (i.e 1 John) and reading it in its entirety every day for 30 days, or taking a longer book (like the gospel of John) and dividing it (3 sections of 7 chapters) and honing in on each section individually for 30 days. Once this is finished for each book, you will have completed a detailed and extensive New Testament study in less than 3 years. During both his OT and NT studies, MacArthur recommends the habit of taking notes as you read of truths learned, precepts not quite understood, as well as making index cards detailing the major theme of each book. These will be indispensable tools in grasping Biblical wisdom and truly hiding God’s Word in your heart.

Length: Two-Three Years


George Müller on Personal Devotions

This rich resource from George Müller gives much sound counsel, wisdom, and biblical advice on how to profit from reading the Word of God. He delves into many devotional thoughts and shares insight on studying the Bible, praying, and the careful and consecutive reading of the Holy Scriptures.

“I saw more clearly than ever that the first great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day was to have my soul happy in the Lord. The first thing to be concerned about was not how much I might serve the Lord, or how I might glorify the Lord; but how I might get my soul into a happy state, and how my inner man might be nourished. For I might seek to benefit believers, I might seek to relieve the distressed, I might in other ways seek to behave myself as it becomes a child of God in this world; and yet, not being happy in the Lord, and not being nourished and strengthened in my inner man day by day, all this might not be attended to in a right spirit.”
