Have you ever considered reading the Bible from start to finish but found the idea too intimidating? Some of you may have even purchased a “one year Bible” only to have it end up on a bookshelf.

Finally, if that’s not enough what if you could listen to a selection of classical music while reading each Scripture passage?
