    Hmm let's see, I'll go first. Answer to the first question is No, I haven't read it cover to cover, that's still a goal for me. 2nd question is it may take me my whole life, but that's ok cause I'm still in God's word . 3rd question would be I try to read a passage everyday if possible, that is food for the soul. 4th my favorite book would be all of them!! They all speak to my heart and to my soul, even the Old Testament books, even such as Haggai and Habakuk. 5th question for me probably is the book of Haggai, you really gotta be well versed in reading it. 6th question would be King James Version, I know it has it's critics, and there are many that claim this translation is right, or this one, but what I do know of the King James Version, it points to Christ as the only way to salvation and it gives all and honor and glory to Him, that alone is enough for me. and finally, my relationship with Him has improved in that my discernment and understanding of the scriptures is coming as if it's plain English to me, like you and I having a sit down chat, it becomes that plain, and I know God is strengthening my faith and my understanding through His word.

    1.Have you read the Bible cover to cover?

    Yes. Working on 5th time

    2. How long did it take to do so if you did?

    I used different read through the Bible in a year schedules several times so...a year.

    3. How much do you read daily?

    Depends. I have two methods. The "scope" method, where I am reading a big chunk to get perspective, and a "detail" method, where I focus more on detail. For the scope, 4-6 chapters. Detail sometimes only a few verses, up to 1 chapter.

    4. What's your favorite book of the bible?

    NT James or the Gospel of John, OT Psalms or Genesis

    5. What part was the hardest to read?

    Job. And for some reason, I seem to get stuck in the minor prophets.

    6. What translation do you prefer?

    I often read KJV because I like their word choices. I also read the ESV, since I've heard that is a very accurate/literal translation.

    7. How has your relationship with God improved after spending time in his word?

    In every way! lol. I am better able to respond to what I know to be right when I see it in His Word, that's huge for me.
    “If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”

    Hey!!
    I'm new here and I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you!
    I try to read the Bible a lot and recently I've been reading some every day, but I've never read it cover to cover. (I wish
    I will sometime.
    I love the Gospel of John ( I read it over and over) and have recently been studying it and memorizing my favorite parts as part of a school program. I also love reading the Psalms and am currently reading Proverbs. I have never read it through before (though I've started many times) and I'm loving it
    Reading the Bible frequently has definitely made the word of God more present in my life and more real to me.

    lol...I'm in no way amazing. Everyone is different in their Christian walk. God has a different time to reach out of each of His people, and everyone has a different growth rate. So, you're not behind! No such thing. I was raised in a Christian family so to be honest, I have no time and date for when I was saved. I started being really interested in the Bible and God in a personal way when I was about 11. God is very gracious and merciful

    Well that's true but don't say that you're not amazing cuz you totally are Psul wasn't like "im not doing the best at this disciple stuff" nah fam he said that he surpassed all the other disciples but then he made sure to tell everyone how he got to that point by God's grace and power so when i call you amazing don't say your not say you got there thanks to the Lord cx. And yea I'm not gonna be able to beat you when it comes to how many times you read the bible, unless i just rush through and don't learn anything, but i can totally beat you in the study of it SO I SHALL.
