About the M'Cheyne Bible reading plan

Robert Murray M'Cheyne (also known as McCheyne) was an early 19th century pastor and preacher in Scotland. Amongst his legacy is a well-known scheme for daily Bible reading. In its original formulation it takes the reader through the the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice per year. This means reading about four chapters a day, taken from different parts of the Bible.

Don Carson has tidied up the original scheme a little by changing the reading boundaries in five places and published it in two volumes called For the Love of God, along with his excellent daily meditations on the readings. (Available from The Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.) The daily meditations are also available online.

Carson suggests that the reader proceeds at half the rate of the M'Cheyne version: he takes just two of the four M'Cheyne readings each day, which is somewhat more manageable. So it takes the reader through the New Testament and Psalms every year, and the Old Testament every two years. I usually follow this scheme.

There are lots of ways to access the daily readings over the web from this site or in print form. See my Access page for all the info.
