0%      Daily readings with family

Comments

"This past year have been working on Proverbs and Psalms - so learning a lot more of the OT... have not read many of the smaller books of the OT"

"but lets face it if I was really that dissatisfied with it, I would try harder"

"I'm an EFM graduate and mentor, a 17-year affiliate of a monastic order and pray the offices, so I may not be representative."

"I hear or read the OT during Sunday worship, daily Morning Prayer, and in preparation for my weekly EfM group (I serve as a mentor)."

"Still lots of room for improvement in OT knowledge, but reading it through is the best way...it's a narrative, not a devotional."

We had also asked, "How would you tell the story of Scripture in 5 words or less?" I regret that we've lost those results somewhere in the Book of Face. We'll add those results if/when we find them, because they were really good.
