<h1>Read the Bible in a Year</h1>
<p>
	<strong>Whilst I have read large portions of the Bible,</strong> I have not been able to stick to reading it
	consistently.
</p><p>
	For this year, it is my intention to read the whole thing. I have prepared a reading schedule that covers a couple
	of chapters a day. The biggest problem was fitting this immense amount of information into an index card that I
	could use as a book mark.
	<br /><br />
	This is what I’ve created: <a href="/blog/bible-schedule/bible-schedule.html">View the schedule.</a>
</p>
<img src="/blog/bible-schedule/screenshot.png" alt="Screenshot of Bible schedule" width="640" height="455" />
<p>
	<small>Note:  Due to a <a href="https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=293052" rel="external">bug</a> in
	Firefox, the table will not render correctly.<br />
	Please use either Safari / Chrome, Opera or even Internet Explorer to view / print the schedule.</small>
</p>


<h2>How to Use This Schedule</h2>
<ol>
	<li>
		<p>
			Look up the current day in the table using the day number across the first (or last) row, and the
			month on the left
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			The 1<sup>st</sup> row in each month shows the corresponding book. Where names are unable to fit
			they have either been abbreviated using standard abbreviations, or references which are defined
			underneath the table
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			The corresponding cell below the book for each day tells you which chapter to start reading at.
			Continue reading up to (but not including) the chapter for the following day
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			On some days you will read more than one book. In these instances that day’s cell is split into
			two or more, but the cell underneath only provides the chapter number of the first book to start
			on
		</p>
		<img src="/blog/bible-schedule/screenshot-1.png" alt="Example showing 1st Peter chapters 1, 5, and 2nd Peter" width="57" height="49" />
		<p>
			Here, you would read <cite>1<sup>st</sup> Peter</cite> chapter 1–4 on one day then on the next
			day read <cite>1<sup>st</sup> Peter</cite> Chapter 5 (and onto the end of the book) as well as all
			of <cite>2<sup>nd</sup> Peter</cite> (reference mark ‘L’)
		</p>
	</li><li>
		<p>
			Please note that <cite>Psalms</cite> Chapter 119 and <cite>Jeremiah</cite> Chapter 25 are very
			long and are subdivided between two days. The single-dagger mark notes that on July the
			5<sup>th</sup> you should read <cite>Psalms</cite> 117–119:72 and <cite>Psalms</cite> 119:73 to
			the end of the chapter on the following day. Secondly, the double-dagger mark notes that on the
			14<sup>th</sup> of August, read <cite>Jeremiah</cite> 23–25:16 followed by <cite>Jeremiah</cite>
			25:17 to the end of the chapter the next day
		</p>
	</li>
</ol>

<hr />

<p>
	<strong>I had</strong> originally tried to create this using <cite>Pages</cite>, but it refused to split table cells
	anymore once I got down to <cite>Amos</cite>. Printing in browsers is generally very broken and inept, but you
	should be able to scale the schedule down to the desired paper size using the advanced printer settings.
</p><p>
	If anybody could make some decent PDFs for me in A6, A7, Index card and
	<a href="http://pocketmod.com" rel="external">Pocket Mod</a> size, I’d greatly appreciate it, thanks!
