How Long Does It Take to Read the Bible?

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!

  1. I don’t mean any disrespect, but if you have read the Bible through in it’s entirety, why do you support Sunday worship, a practice put in place by man? It is a commandment.

  2. We are not Sabbatarians. The Bible clearly says that Jesus rose on the first day of the week (Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:2; Mark 16:9; Luke 24:1; John 20:1). It also indicates that the believers met on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 16:2). Paul was instructing them to meet on the first day of the week (Sunday).

    Yet – I think Sunday is a model, not a command. I dont care if a church meets on Saturday, Sunday, Monday or any other day of the week. Yet the pattern seems to have been set for Sunday.

    I think Colossians 2:16-23 is important here – especially verses 16-17 – Therefore not not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath Day. Theses are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.
