Book Review: “A Woman’s Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year” by Diane Stortz

A Woman’s Guide to Reading the Bible in a Year is a unique guide inspired and developed by a real-life group of women who read through the Bible together year after year.

At the beginning, Diane mentions several possible situations that might describe the reader’s situation in terms of reading through the Bible. The second one unfortunately describes me: “You’ve tried to read through the Bible before, but you gave up in the middle of Leviticus.” Yes, that’s me. I have definitely read the entire Bible, but I’ve never made it through the entire thing in order. But this plan is different–it alternates between Old and New Testament, one book at a time–something I’ve never done before. Each week has an introduction that ties everything you’ll read for the week together. And in one year, you’ll have read the entire Bible.

I love that she gives tips for doing this either individually or with a group of women. Accountability is SO important when trying to achieve any goal!

I have already found this to be helpful, just one week in. I think this way of studying the Bible might be the key for me to read the Bible consistently, and even to get me through Leviticus 🙂

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
