Chapter 2

On Reading the Bible

LET your reading be private, individual, and at the right time of day. Reading with others is good in its place, but cannot serve the purpose of private study. The mind cannot, in company, settle to the subject with that thoroughness of grip that is needful for thorough results. Do your Bible readings by yourself, whatever luxury you may indulge in with your friends. And let it be at a time when your faculties are wide awake. To put if off to the last thing, just before going to bed, after your pith has been spent on other things, is not doing justice to yourself or to God. A little extra Bible reading at such a time, such as a psalm or a chapter from the epistles is very well as a soothing finish to the day, but to leave your whole Bible reading till then is to attend to it under conditions that almost preclude the possibility of your getting the intended good.-- R. Roberts


 

 

The Bible Reading Companion

takes you through the Old Testament once

and the New Testament twice in a year

The Bible Companion is a bond of fellowship among brethren and sisters throughout the world. All who use it are within the space of twenty-four hours, reading the same words, guided into the same channels of holy thought, moved in ways which can find expression in related prayer, made strong before the throne of grace because they speak as one.
