Celebratory Bible Blog Cross-Post
Over at the Bible Blog, I just finished a long, surprisingly unrewarding half-year march through the Book of Psalms! So those of you up for a "reading project of Biblical proportions" (obligatory "Biblical proportions" jest), y'all can jump in and join me now as I start Proverbs, and then go back and worry about Psalms later. Or whatever.
Psalms is the longest book of the Bible, and trudging through it took 21 posts spread over 5 months and 6 days. Having completed Psalms, I've got through 19 of the 66 Books of the Bible: 28.8%.
Well, that's all fine and good, but I've also completed 628 of the Chapters of the Bible, or 52.8%! Or 16401 of the Verses, 52.7%! I'M MORE THAN HALFWAY THROUGH, PEOPLE! It's kind of like that point in the marathon where you think "you know, if I'd had the good sense to sign up for a HALF-marathon...."
