How long does it take to read the Bible? The answer is 77 hours and 22 minutes. That is the length of the NIV Bible being read out loud by Max McLean. You can purchase it for your I-Pod.
So if Max reads the Bible in 77 hours and 22 minutes – that is a total of 4642 minutes. If you read at Max's pace (which is not fast since it is dramatic and out loud) – it would take 12 minutes and 43 seconds per day for you to read the Bible through this year.
Have you ever read it through? If not – why not this year? If so – why not do it again? You can still pick up two options at Church – a "One-Year Bible" ($7.50) or a chronological read through plan (free). Pick one up at church on Sunday!
