Listening through the Bible [EXPERIMENT] – Day 29

Twenty-eight days after officially beginning the experiment, I’ve officially finished it. I made it all the way through the Bible, audio style. Woohoo!

This has by far been the easiest I’ve ever made it all the way through the Bible. Thanks to not having to read, it’s easy to get through it. It’s just a matter of setting aside the time. That’s always true, but with audio, I haven’t had to set aside time to completely focus on it without any other distractions. With audio, I can multitask.

Multitasking through the Bible might not be the best way to comprehend and digest what I hear, but the trade off is that I actually get through it. For this experiment, it’s worked out well, I think.

There’s something wonderful about a survey like this, a speed read (or, in this case, listen) through the Bible. I missed a lot of the details that would have stuck if I’d slowed the pace, but I got to connect themes I might not have caught if I’d gone slower. It’s just a different way to tackle it.

I’ll followup with some of the lessons I took away from the whole thing, the big ones anyway. For now, I’m happy to report that the experiment was completed successfully and a complete success.
