365-Day Bible Reading Plan – A Roundup Of Printables

In the last few years, there has been an increase in Google searches for the phrase  “Printable Bible Reading Plan.”  Online daily readings became a lifeline to people during the world lockdowns. God’s Word was a huge emotional support as many felt so isolated. 

Now that the lockdowns are over, many people still appreciate the convenience of printable Bible reading plans. 

I want to offer you more than one 365-day Bible Reading plan ranging from 

  • super easy to very comprehensive
  • printable and non-printable
  • free and purchasable

Why 365-day Bible reading plans are important

We would never consider fasting from food unless it was planned for a specific purpose and for a specific period of time. 

But when it comes to Bible reading we should never be fasting.

Bible reading is the primary way that God speaks to us. God’s word is food for our souls. Without it, we can become spiritually sick and weak. 

Jesus said, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4 ESV

So a one-year plan assures that we get the spiritual nutrition that we desperately need. 

Types of 365-day Bible Reading Plans

There are a variety of Bible reading plans that will keep you on track for an entire year. 

Through the entire Bible in a year

Reading through the whole Bible in a year is what most people think of when they hear about a 365-day Bible reading plan. 

This is an ambitious undertaking and takes commitment to get through it all. Yet, it pushes a person to see the unique plan of Salvation that appears from cover to cover. 

The extremely popular “Bible Recap” plan is more than a list of Biblical passages to read. It includes commentary for every day that brings alive what you have read.

Bible Recap was used by people worldwide during the lockdown. It is a great way to get through the entire Bible in a year. However, If you have any kind of reading difficulties it might not be the best plan for you. 

The Old Testament in a year

As the title suggests, you read only Old Testament passages, completing them in 365 days.  

This is a little less ambitious plan and more manageable for a lot of people. 

Read The Hard Parts has done a nice job arranging the Old Testament into a 365-day reading plan that you can download and print.

The New Testament in a year

This type of plan goes through New Testament passages, completing them in 365 days. 

If you love the New Testament as I do, this kind of plan is super easy with only a few books that are difficult to understand. 

The Navigators has a nice plan called “5x5x5”. It is 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week, with 5 ways to dig deeper.

Chronological Bible reading plan 

The Bible is not arranged in Chronological order. Instead, it is grouped by similar types of books such as laws, poetry, wisdom literature, prophets, gospels, letters to the early churches, etc.

A Chronological program is a historical Bible reading plan. You jump from place to place to get the big picture of how life unfolded from generation to generation. For many people, this makes more sense. 

A couple of good plans that you can download come from:

Topical Bible reading plan

I have done the whole Bible in a year. But I think a topical Bible reading plan is my favorite. You still have daily Bible reading, but the topic changes from month to month. 

This type of plan gives you Bible verses on topics that address more about God’s character or situations that we want to be more grounded in.

Non-printable 365-day Bible reading plans

Many of the popular Bible websites have reading plans that you can follow on a phone app.

Some keep track of where you are in the plan and what comes next pops up on the appropriate day.

Some also will have an audio version you can listen to when you are driving, exercising, or washing dishes. 

Just type into their search box, “365-day Bible reading plans.”
