For the Love of God!

I usually tend to post these kinds of things after the new year, so here's one ahead of time: if you want a very helpful Bible-reading program, many people use and have benefited from the M'Cheyne system.

And if you want good, insightful, devotional, whole-Bible theological and practical devotions to go with them, you can hardly do better than D.A. Carson's For the Love of God, vol. 1, and For the Love of God, vol. 2.

Here's a description:
Now more than ever, the need to read the Bible, to understand the big picture of its storyline, and to grasp the relevance this has for your life is critical. Join with us as we follow Donald Carson's Bible-reading plan one day at a time right here online. Through this plan we will see the riches and unity of the Scriptures revealed as we make our way through God's Word together. The insights here will help you view the Bible for all that it is --as both the complete and inspired history of redemption, as well as the revelation of God and His character. And this book's through the Bible in a year reading plan will renew your urgency not only to delve deeply into God's Word, but to study it daily so that your mind will be shaped and informed by what God Himself says and sees.
I'm not entirely sure how it works, but I think you can also sign up to view these devotions online through a group.
