How to use the Bible Reading Checklist

I'm glad you're here! I hope the Bible Reading Checklist helps you with your Bible reading goals. Please read the instructions carefully. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Works Offline

This page works the same whether you're connected to the internet or not. Your page is saved on your device, in "local storage." Clearing your cache will not normally remove your settings. You can remove your settings by using your browser's "clear saved data" function.

Save Your Name

Click the words "What's Your Name?" to personalize the page. Click it again to overwrite your previous data.

Switch Testaments

For convenience, either the Old Testament or the New Testament will show at any time. This makes finding the book you're reading easier.


The Checklist has a default light theme and an optional dark theme. Your choice will be saved until you change it.


Clicking the name of a book (like Matthew) will open BibleGateway's copy of Matthew 1 in a new tab. This only works if you're connected to the internet.

Mark Read / Mark Unread

A convenient way to select all of the chapters in a single book. When you're done reading the whole Bible and want to start again, use the button below. This will mark all chapters in the whole Bible unread.

Reset Everything to UnreadSuccess! THIS CANNOT BE UNDONE


There are 1,189 chapters in the Bible: 929 in the Old Testament, 260 in the New Testament. Your progress toward reading the whole Bible is displayed near the top of the page.
