So I am thinking about reading through the Bible in a different way then I have before. I want to read whole books as whole books and drop the chapters and verses. I want to read it in a translation I have never read so that I am not familiar with certain “passages” and I want to read it in some kind of chronological order (specifically Acts and the Epistles). Any thoughts? Anything out there like this? I know you can get The Message without verses. Anyone used that? Liked It? My hope is to see larger themes and truths in Scripture by focusing on whole books (letters) instead of certain “key” verses. So yeah, any help on this by some of you more well read folks would be great. Thanks!

1 Peter 4:10As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
