New Bible Reading Program for 2018. This year’s Bible Reading Program takes you to four sections of the Bible each day. Robert Murray McCheyne, an early 19th-century pastor and preacher in Scotland, created this well-known reading program. During this year, you will read the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice.
