N.T. Wright on Reading Scripture

“People do not always, perhaps, realize how natural and easy reading whole books of the Bible can be.  You can read through Colossians quite slowly in about twelve minutes; you can get through Hebrews in under an hour.  John may take longer, but time will quickly become a secondary consideration.  I am convinced that using a lectionary – reading the Bible in little snippets – is a second-order activity; the primary activity ought to be reading the Bible in large chunks, to get its full flavor and thrust” (x-xi).
