- Chronological Plan
The Blue Letter Bible “Chronological” plan is compiled according to recent historical research, taking into account the order in which the recorded events actually occurred. This is a fantastic plan to follow if you wish to add historical context to your reading of the Bible.
- Canonical Plan (Regular Book Order)
The Blue Letter Bible “Canonical” plan goes straight through the Bible — from Genesis to Revelation. You will be supplied with reading for each day of the week as a steady guide toward finishing the entire Bible in one calendar year.

This plan which includes readings from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs will guide you through God’s Word in one year.
