Have you ever closed your Bible and thought, “What did I just read?” Or maybe you've tried to read through the Bible in a year, but quit when it felt confusing or impersonal? Are you one of the many who has read through the book of Genesis approximately 20 times, but hasn't read anything beyond that?

The Bible Recap is here to help! It’s a short daily podcast (~8 minutes) hosted by Tara-Leigh Cobble. This will be her 10th time reading through the Bible chronologically, and she’ll highlight and summarize that day’s Bible reading in a casual, easy to understand way. The Bible Recap will not only help you read scripture but help you love reading it!

Each day you’ll read the assigned reading (see plans below), then tune in to The Bible Recap each day after you've finished reading (see links below)! NOTE: Please do not buy a print Chronological Bible; it will likely be laid out differently than our reading plan. All you need is a regular Bible.
