Create a Chronological Bible Reading Plan

As you perhaps know, Logos allows us to create reading plans for any book in our libraries, with the most popular being a plan to read through the Bible. People often email asking if it’s possible to create a chronological Bible reading plan, that is, they want to read the biblical events in the order that they actually happened. If you would like such a plan, here’s how to create it:

  • Choose File | Reading Plan
  • Name the plan something like Chronological Bible Reading Plan
  • Select a Bible (from the drop down list) on which to base the plan
  • Click the passage drop down list where you select the range of Scripture to be included in the plan
  • Copy / Paste the biblical references from this text file into the New reference range box
    Hint: Press Ctrl + A (PC) or Cmd + A (Mac) to select all text, then copy / paste like normal
  • Name this range by typing in the Title box something like Chronological
  • Click Save
  • Select from the drop down lists the frequency and start / stop times for the plan
  • Click Go to create the plan

This Chronological Bible Reading Plan will now be displayed in the ribbon of the Home Page!
