Seminar in Trujillo, Peru

Ministry and mission work is a team effort -- Jan and I have shared the work of ministry and missions for over 50 years! (We traveled together to preaching appointments during the year before we were married.) Countless people have encouraged us, supported us, loved us, and prayed for us. In addition to the customary "Brother Bob," I am also known as dad and papaw. One of my favorite breakfasts is huevos fritos, frijoles, and tortillas, with a good hot sauce and a cup of rich Colombian coffee! My greatest joy in life is being part of the kingdom; my #1 priority is to advance "kingdom things" and to help develop authentic "kingdom people." I seek to share the good news about Jesus everywhere I go, helping people find Jesus and helping people mature as disciples of Jesus. One of the greatest blessings of my life is to be loved by countless people around the world!

These devotional studies are designed as a guide for reading through and studying the New Testament in one year. Each devotional is based on one chapter of the New Testament. By reading the Scriptural text (included with the devotional) one may read from and study every chapter in the New Testament in a year. Even better, one may choose to complement this devotional guide by reading the daily chapter in one's own Bible, thereby reading the New Testament through in one year (5 devotionals each week x 52 weeks = 260 chapters in the New Testament). The five-days-per-week schedule leaves weekends free for catching up or for other reading and study projects.
Three reading plans are possible.
First, following the order of this guide. The suggested order of readings in this guide lets the reader alternate between different sections of the New Testament and different types of literature (gospels, history, letters, prophecy) rather than consecutively reading through the New Testament. This avoids spending long periods of time in specific sections such as the Gospels or the Pauline letters.
Second, read the New Testament through in order. Links to the New Testament books are provided for those who prefer to study or read through the New Testament in order, five chapters per week.
Third, use a different method or read randomly. A Daily Bible Reading Guide is provided for those who want to follow a different plan and for those who like to read randomly, checking off or circling the chapters read. The Daily Bible Reading Guide includes both the Old Testament and the New Testament.
To provide a guide that can be used each year, the number of readings in a month has been determined based on how the calendar falls in most years. Depending on the day of the week with which a month begins, there may be a slight variation as one moves from month to month.
