Hi

Can someone explain to me exactly how the Bible Reading works? I have created a reading plan but how do I know how much to read for a day?

That all depends upon what your plan is.  You could read one proverb each day, or start reading the gospels or Paul's letters. A reading plan is what you want it to be. It should not be a duty that you have to do (get through so many verses) it should be something you want to do (spend time with God).

 

For me I have been reading and studying Romans again. I may get through 1 verse or 5. It is not how much but how well.

 

Reading plans are guides, they are not carved in stone. Enjoy your time with our Father.

I have a PDF of two spreadsheets I created a couple of decades ago for reading the Bible through in a year, either sequentially or chronologically. I seriously doubt I'll ever learn to make module/s out of it/them, but would be glad to send it to anybody who wishes to do so or to anybody who just wants to print one out and use it that way. Let me know if you'd like it for any purpose.

 when you open the Bible reading window or have it open when eSword does you read everything in the bible reading window then you check the completed bible reading icon and close the window the next day it should open with the next days reading and so on

 

I use a bible listening plan (not part of eSword)

May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

Reading plan step by step in E-Sword

1] click on the tools menu

2] pick the Bible reading option

3] on the top left click the icon for New Bible Reading Plan

4] this will open the Bible Reading Plan Wizard

5] put a Chk mark at Bible and pick OT NT or both  click next

6] choose the days you want

7] pick the length of time for the plan

8] click on the icon on the right  this will open another window

9] give the plan a name  and save it

10] click finish

11] on the bottom left of the reading plan window you can choose which plan you want to use and if it will show at startup

 

Hope this helps

Many Thanks DSaw.

Let me explain what I am doing:

I have a reading plan to read the book of Acts 5 times per week for one month. That gives me 28 readings. My question is thus; Will Esword show me the whole reading that I must complete for the day ie chapter 3 and 4 or only chapter 3? What happens if I get behind?

eSword only goes down to a month so it would only plan one reading of acts in the month

 

20 chapters of acts a day to read the book of Acts 5 times in a week is a lot at least for me it is 

 

listening to the whole book of acts would take 2:18:00, 2 hrs 18 min
