Now some might think this strange, but I decided I wanted to read the Bible from cover to cover. Before then I had only been a drive-by reader, a spiritual "flipper" if you will, meaning whichever page I flipped to, that's the one I read. There's nothing wrong with that, in fact, these days I still do it. However, reading the whole thing through in one year was my goal, and I met it. I didn't retain or understand it all, but that's been coming steadily in the years since.
