I’m on my second “Read the Bible in 90 Days” phone app. It is a commitment but I have a friend who always talks about the bible as “God’s Love Letter” and if we had a really awesome love letter from our loved one that we hadn’t seen in years…would we sit it up on the shelf to collect dust?? No…we would be devouring it.

If you read one book a day it will take between 66 and 81 days (depending on which version you read). You can include a bunch of the Apocrypha and still be done in 3 or 4 months.

I read the Bible in a year and a half (approximately), reading one page a day (sometimes more, sometimes less). However, I wouldn't recommend it. There is too much information and so much you can miss that it's not worth it. Take your time reading it and do appropriate research and examine it

My challenge to myself when I read is to simply to read the bible like any other novel I pick up. I tend to read a novel not to just get through one chapter or a few verses but to read till I’m tired.

The best way is to follow the bible's own instructions. II Tim. 2:15 says the word of truth must be rightly divided. It's a big book and everything in it is not written for the application of people today. This is crucial in keeping from misapplication and forming of cultic beliefs

I think the best way to study the bible is in a topical way. What I mean is this; pick a subject and then look up every verse that will help to explain the topic

When I first tried to start studying the Bible intensely for the first time over a year ago, I wasn't quite sure how or where to start. So I did what seemed to make sense--opened it up and dove right in. I drowned. Even though I was eager to learn, I felt that I was in over my head.

There’s a one year Bible that has daily readings in the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. I’m not sure what translation it is, but it has a reading for what ever day it is. I haven’t tried it myself, but have known some people who have liked it.

I have done a schedule that is for reading the whole Bible in two years. I pick a plan and plug in what I’d like to read and how many months I want to take and follow that. Having a plan seems helpful to establish a daily reading habit and a way to read through the whole Bible.

If you really want to get into context and meaning, I would suggest"Reading The Bible Again for the First Time" by the late Marcus Borg

That's smart. It's really not about getting through it in the quickest time, but rather, really taking some thing away from it and constantly learning about Christ.

You must read it as a believer! If you don't read and believe it's words are inspired and preserved by God, you are wasting your time. The bible is a book of purpose.

I recommend to read it cover to cover, keeping in mind that the book of Genesis is a compilation of the common myths of the tribes living in Canaan, that most of the other books deal with the history of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah and that all the Old Testament was written as an attempt to give an unified national identity for the people of these kingdoms (specially the second, because the definitive version of the Bible was written after the Babylonian exile, when the kingdom of Israel existed no more). And the New Testament I recommend a parallel reading of the Gospels, so you can check how contradictory are each one to the other three.

There is no best way to study the Bible, but you can be sure of getting the best out your investment if you study the Bible regularly,
prayerfully, meditatively and systematically.

Treat the Bible as one giant book. How do read a book? Most, read from start to finish. While the Bible is not perfect in doing so, you will find that each sub-book of the Bible generally makes coherent sense in its own entity.
