Frequently Asked Questions about the M’Cheyne Bible Reading Plan
What is the M'Cheyne Bible Reading Plan?
What's so great about this plan?
Still, there are many plans that work through the entire Bible. The additional benefit of the M’Cheyne Plan is that you will read through different parts of the Bible at all times if you use the full plan. So, on January 1st, you will read Genesis 1, Matthew 1, Ezra 1, and Acts 1—four vastly different points within the canon.
This is a plan that has been used by many well-known Christians through the years, including D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, John Stott, Joni Eareckson Tada, and D. A. Carson
How many chapters do I have to read each day?
Still, you do not need to read the full four chapters to make use of the plan. The meditations from Free Daily Bible Study will cover the readings from only one track every year. In 2015, Free Daily Bible Study will be based on the first track of readings, from Genesis through 2 Chronicles.
If you are trying to establish a habit of reading the Bible every day, by all means start with reading just one chapter. Work up to reading more after you establish a consistent daily pattern of reading the Bible in your life.
I have found a couple of different versions of the M'Cheyne Bible Reading Plan. Which one will we be using for Free Daily Bible Study?
While I personally prefer the former version (it’s the version that D. A. Carson uses in his book For the Love of God, and it’s nice to break up the synoptic gospels with the Psalms), I will be using the latter version for two reasons. First, it’s the version used for the ESV M’Cheyne Plan Podcast, so if you are someone who listens to a lot of podcasts, the Free Daily Bible Study meditation will line up with the ESV plan.
Second, it’s also the version included in the highly popular YouVersion Bible app.
