Three years ago I spent a year using one bible for the entire year. I did a series of posts focusing on that experience. It was an important year for me, I must say. It showed me that I really do need to stick with one primary bible for my daily reading. Sure, I look at different translations when I need to, particularly since I teach scripture. But I can honestly say that because of that experience back in 2015, I feel like I am finally not simply reading the bible to seek info, but actually being taught by it in a slow, relational way. It is hard to explain to be honest, but I just read to read, without looking for doctrines or proof-texts or anything of the sort. And even though the bible I use now is not that one I used in 2015, I am immensely grateful for having spent a year with my NRSV.
Recently, my friend Kevin has decided to start this year attempting to do the OBOY challenge. I wanted to pass along a link to his site, where he goes over what he is attempting to do by taking on the OBOY challenge. Give it a look! Consider doing it yourself!
