The Chrono Chronicles

For some years now I've been reading the bible cover to cover but in a different translation each year.

I joined The Chrono group in NY cuz I thought it would be cool to do this with other disciples.
Early in 2009 I fell behind about 2 months worth in my reading.
I was told that it would be impossible to catch up by the end of the year.
So Justin and I made a bet that if I finished the chrono by the end of the year that he would treat me to a lunch worth at least $20.00. If I loss I would treat him.
The following month I came to him and let him know that I not only caught up but was 3 weeks ahead! Something I didn't think I could accomplish in a months time but I prayed and had faith as God showed me that it was possible.

Towards the end of 2009 I really really fell behind like at least 4 months! No matter how much I tried the days were piling up! I would fall asleep etc and just kept seriously falling behind.
I would calculate how much reading I would have to do per day. At first it went from 20 something to finally 84 pages a day that I had to read.
I'm not particularly a fast reader so this presented a problem.
At this point I had less than a week before New Years day :(
I truly felt like giving up and accepting defeat. I was saddened especially since I gave my word that I would finish on time. More than a $20.00 lunch was at stake.
I wanted to prove that it was possible for anyone not just me to finish in time no matter how behind they got.
I also needed to be realistic...
Then the moment hit when I got on my knees and prayed like crazy to finish before the ball dropped. I knew at least for me that reading about 3-4 months worth of reading in 4 days was impossible! I prayed more and more and dedicated myself to reading about 5-7 hours a day. I even decided that if I wasn't done I would skip a New Years Eve party in order to fulfill my commitment to God.
Well believe it or not w Gods help I did it and actually got alot out of my reading. I was done reading all the scriptures by december 30th and some commentaries by the 31st. I even went to the New Years Eve party.
It was God he gave me hunger for his word and a determination not to give up. This may sound like a silly victory but im grateful To him be the glory I mean that sincerely from the heart :)

This year Im reading "The Word on the street" bible, The Manga bible, Illustrated cartoon bible and a childrens bible. These all are much shorter versions but it should make for some fun reading.

Ps if u didn't finish on time I share this only to show that with God we can do it! A few years back I took 1year and a 1/2 to finish the message bible.


With Love, Liz

Great job on finishing the bible and persevering. I know it is late but I wanted to thank the group. I was able to finish the audio bible last year and was able to learn about persevering ( especially through Leviticus ). Now this year I'm just going to camp on a book/chapter and get as much out of it from different commentaries and listen to the same chapter over and over till i memorize the content. So thanks again everyone!

Very interesting!
As a Muslim, I, too, have started reading the Quran, the Muslims' Holy Book, in different translations, and I find myself getting SO much more out of it each time with a different translation. It's amazing how strikingly different they can be sometimes :)
