Crossway recently posted 5 benefits to reading entire books of the Bible in one sitting:
- You’ll gain unique perspective.
- You’ll let Scripture speak for itself.
- You’ll read like a writer.
- You’ll read more.
- You’ll broaden your understanding.
Under that first point, they explain, “By taking in a larger swath of Scripture uninterrupted, you can more easily see themes or patterns in the writing, the narrative’s flow, and the context of each verse. Reading this way can be likened to getting an aerial perspective on a city as compared to your viewpoint from a single address on the map.”
Have you experienced such benefits? Have you ever tried reading the Bible at length? Crossway offers some welcome motivation.
