Have you read the Bible in its entirety?  Did you read it with a group or by yourself? And how long did it take you?

Have you read it multiple times?  If so, how many times?

Did you read it front to back, in chronological order, or some other format?

Which versions have you used/read personally?  Which one is it your favorite?

Let's please stay away from criticism of various methods or versions.  smiley
