There are instructions on the wiki for how to approximate the M'Cheyne reading calendar in a reading plan in Logos 4.

However I am slightly OCD and have therefore manually created a reading plan for 2010 in Logos4 that follows the M'Cheyne calendar properly so it matches up with For the Love of God on my homepage Big Smile

I believe it will be possible to distribute this to anyone who wants to use it, however I need a volunteer (read guinea pig) to test this out; so if you feel comfortable poking around the Logos4 directories and ideally don't have any current reading plans you wouldn't be unhappy to lose or need to recreate, drop me an email at jon.rumble AT gmail DOT com and we'll see if it can be done...

Did it work? if so, I'd love it.

John,

I have purchased the hard copies of Carsons devotional books "For the Love of God" and have been following the McCheyne Bible Reading Plan as shown in his Vol 1&2. However, I am looking for a way to set that reading plan in my Logos 4 so that I can just do the reading easily in Logos. Can you show me how to get this set up? I have been doing my daily reading from hard copy Bible and the devotionals from Carson's hard copy, but would love to do it digitally in Logos.

The only way currently is to prioritize For the Love of God above other devotionals. Then it will appear on your home page. This is what I currently do.

I have requested that date ranges be allowed on the reading plans. This would make it so that you and I could more easily read along (and know when we've missed days...i.e. keep track of how far behind or ahead we are). It also would allow people to pick up the MCheyne's reading plan that starts on January 1 and begin it any day they want...or spread it out over 2 years, or whatever. My request is here: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/8335.aspx

To setup the M'Cheyne calendar as a reading plan in Logos will be easy with the release of 4.0b, it is the current beta version and includes the M'Cheyne calendar as a reference range when you're doing a bible reading plan; so you could install the beta to have it now, or wait a couple of weeks for 4.0b to be finalised...

It is currently set up only to allow a 1 year plan. The only thing that you can customize is the start date.

Plea to Logos development team then:

for 4.0c can we have the plan available as a two year plan, with the "family" readings in year 1 and the "private" readings in year 2 please?Big Smile
