It was through reading his Bible in a daily reading plan that President George W. Bush deepened his faith. Bush was new to Bible study when he joined a community Bible study in the mid-1980s.
"Soon I started to take the sessions more seriously. As I read the Bible, I was moved by the stories of Jesus' kindness to suffering strangers, His healing of the blind and crippled, and His ultimate act of sacrificial love when He was nailed to the cross. For Christmas that year, Don Evans gave me a Daily Bible, a verison split into 365 individual readings. I read it every morning and prayed to understand it more clearly. In time, my faith began to grow."Bush goes on in his memoir Decision Points (p. 32-33) to describe how he journeyed from a tentative faith troubled by doubts to a more confident faith moved by God's love.
For several years I've enjoyed the Victory Bible Reading Plan, which takes the reader through the Bible chronologically. I highly recommend finding a plan that goes through Scripture chronologically, for it is a tremendous help in sorting out the context and meaning of the books of prophecy in the Old Testament as you read them along side the historical narratives.
Last year, however, I started reading the Bible with the M'Cheyne Bible Reading Plan. D. A. Carson's two-volume devotional set, For the Love of God Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, gives daily devotional commentary on the readings in the M'Cheyne plan. The Bible reading plan gives four selections from Scripture each day
