Readings 33-41 from The Books of the Bible (TBoTB)

At this point in the Story, Israel was not a nation in the sense of having a central government or a standing army. They were a large group of people in smaller tribal groups, a loose confederacy of tribes whose only unity was that they worshiped one God who had called them to be lights to the world and celebrated together on an annual basis. (God’s EPIC Adventure. 132-133.

Thought To Contemplate. Samuel
In life, we all experience pressures from all sides to give in and fall short of what God expects from us as participants in his Story. We can choose to fall away from God or return to God when we fail. The choice is ours.

Thought To Contemplate. Kings
Solomon began well but ended poorly. Solomon, in all his wisdom granted by God, chose to defy God. The result was staggering: A broken kingdom. Life is made up of choices. It is possible for us to begin well and end well as we continually develop our relationship with God and live within his Story.

Reading Guide

You can read using the following guide and take your readings a bit slower. To read at a 100 day pace, read the page numbers in the 100 Day column. To read at a 200 day pace, read the page numbers in the 200 Day column. To read at a 300 day pace, read the page numbers in the 300 Day column. You create the days of the week you want to read.

The days are color highlighted. As an example, if you are reading at the 100 Day level the first reading in Genesis would be pages 5-22 to read in one day. You read the same amount of text in the 200 Day reading, but your read it on two different days. The 300 Day reading offers pages to read in three days. Of course, the days you choose to read are up to you.

On average, the 100 day column is about forty-five minutes to an hour. The 200 Day column is about thirty minutes. The 300 day column is about fifteen-twenty minutes. Remember, some folks read faster and some folks read slower and the times above are built on an average of about 250-300 words a minute. Of course, this is pure reading time, not reading and stop-to-think time or meditating time, not reading and discussion time, and not reading and sharing in the Comments section below. It is just reading time!
