Bible in 3 Years Tim Chester is a Pastor and Author who has psoken at BEC on several occassions. Tim has developed a slightly more flexible way to read through the Bible. Instead of set passages for each day there are set sections for each week. This gives you more flexibility than the M’Cheyne plan. If you follow this plan then over the course of three years you will read the Old Testament once and the New Testament twice.
