Reading Plans for the 'ESV Reader's Bible, Six-Volume Set'

Experience Scripture at Your Own Pace

The Bible employs various writing styles and voices. Yet it all reveals the unifying story of God's salvific love for and lasting commitment to his people.

To encourage readers to immerse themselves in the entire sweep of Scripture, the layout of the ESV Reader's Bible, Six-Volume Set facilitates a uniquely undistracted reading experience. Single-column text is presented without verse and chapter numbers, footnotes and most section headings—yielding an uncluttered page that invites lengthier readings.

It's as if the text beckons: "Come. Sit. Stay awhile."

Our hope at Crossway is that you will encounter the beauty of God's Word and be able to step back and marvel at its masterful author.

To help you in this journey, we've created a full reading plan tailored to this six-volume edition. We've also created volume-specific reading plans if you'd prefer to read through separate sections of Scripture in a different order or at your own pace.
