I have only read a tiny bit of the OT and parts I hear at Sunday mass. Recently I got a very strong desire to read it all and I would like to start today, to read a section every day. I have looked up on the internet various ways to organise the reading, but feel that I need to read it in order, following the sequence of books in the Bible. I m not interested in combining it with the psalms and the NT, as some reading guides suggest.
Since this would be my first reading I aim to get through the text with the help of some notes, but not go into an in depth study at this point. I have the RSV edition which is considered to be a wonderful translation and has some notes.
Any tips from experienced readers? How long should this take? What are the good accompanying materials?
Many tanks for any insight you might have. And please pray for me to persevere in this endeavour.
