Jon Fullmer Scripture Schedules


A few years ago, I discovered that if I spent just 20 minutes every day reading the scriptures, I could get through the Bible, the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine & Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price, all within one year. Ever since then, I've been creating various reading schedules for others to benefit from. Here's what I have so far.

Standard Works:


Books that you will read through with this schedule:
Average length of daily reading assignment: 20 minutes

I created this schedule based on the audio version of the scriptues found at lds.org. These can be downloaded for free. I believe the Bible (King James Version) is read by British actor Alex Scorby, and, I'm not certain, but I believe the Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price are read by Utah news personality Bruce Lindsay. It is the audio scriptures that I use as a basis for the amount of time it would take to read, and how to evenly compensate for the varying lengths of chapters and verses.

Old Testament:


Books that you will read through with this schedule:
Average length of daily reading assignment: 10 minutes

This one was created by actually evenly dividing the number of characters in the scriptures (again, used King James Version), and ending on the chapter break where practical. Shorter chapters are combined. Longer chapters are broken up. This achieves an evenly balanced daily reading assignment.

I hope to be able to design a web-based engine to allow anyone to create schedules based on this algorithm.

New Testament:


Books that you will read through with this schedule:
Average length of daily reading assignment: 3 minutes

This one was created by actually evenly dividing the number of characters in the scriptures (again, used King James Version), and ending on the chapter break where practical. Shorter chapters are combined. Longer chapters are broken up. This achieves an evenly balanced daily reading assignment.

I hope to be able to design a web-based engine to allow anyone to create schedules based on this algorithm.
