The Bible in 90 Days?!?

The other day I ran across a blog titled My Brain Doodles.  The author of this blog was talking about reading through the Bible in 90 days.  I thought, "Wow, that sounds interesting."  The thought stuck with me throughout the day, so I told my wife about it when I got home.

She thought it sounded interesting too, so last night we started reading through the Bible in 90 days.  (I am going public with this little announcement because it adds to the accountability, right?  I mean, if I post this to my blog won't it give me the extra energies to undertake such a challenge?)  We read through the first 14 chapters of Genesis last night, I read seven and she read seven.  My youngest son sat with us through the majority of the reading.  It took approximately 50 minutes to accomplish this task, and I felt like it was a much better spent 50 minutes than the TV series on DVD viewing that I originally had planned.

This morning, when I decided to post something on my blog about this little challenge, I went searching for that blog that I ran across.  Once I found it, I realized that this person was talking about this challenge as if it was something official.  Sure enough, I searched for it, found the website.  Through the Bible in 90 days is a special Bible and a curriculum.   They also have a leader's kit and several other resources to assist small groups.  I am still doing a little research, but I am wondering if this might make an awesome summer event for our church (or anyone else in our little community that might be interested).

I will try to let you know what I learn and how it goes.  If anyone else has done this, let me know what you thought.
