Our readers asked:

What’s the best way to read the Bible?
I don't know where to start. Should I start from Genesis and work my way through? I've read the majority of the new Testament and I've re-read some books. I know that when you read the Bible it's definitely not a one time read, I would like to find a way of reading it daily but I'm not sure how to go about it.

Fr. Joe Answers:

We have a great guide to reading the bible called Bible Boot Camp. You can find it by selecting Googling God in our top navigation, then clicking the Bible Boot Camp button.

I also think a good way to read the scripture is to read it along with the daily scripture offered at mass. One reading is usually from the old testament and the other is the gospel during weekdays. On Sundays, we get three bible readings: one from the old testament, one from the latter part of the new testament (usually one of St. Paul’s letters), and one from the Gospels (the story of Jesus).
