2021 BIBLE-READING PLAN

God's story of our salvation

Trace God’s story of grace in Forward in Christ’s 2021 Bible-reading plan. You won’t be studying every verse or chapter, but you’ll grow in faith as you read chronologically through sections of the Bible and see God’s grace in each account. Sections are shorter to help new readers dig in without getting lost.
