A WEEKLY CALENDAR FOR READING 
THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD IN A YEAR
"Your word is very pure, Therefore Your servant loves it.”

THE M'CHEYNE READING PLAN

The 19th Century Scottish minister, Robert Murray M’Cheyne, (sometimes spelled McCheyne) who lived from 1813-1843, prepared a plan for Bible reading to take readers through the New Testament and Psalms twice a year, and through the rest of the Bible once each year. There are approximately four chapters per day in this plan.
