For years, I have read through the One Year Bible. Each year, I read a different translation.

I'd like to be able to read through the NSRV, Catholic Edition with the Apocrypha. However, I want a plan like the One Year Bible that includes a daily selection from the OT, Psalms, NT, and Proverbs. I don't see one in Logos. There is a plan at the back of the Orthodox Study Bible. (I had it created when I was the CEO of Thomas Nelson.) Would it be possible to bake this into Logos for those of us who are Orthodox or Catholic?

Thanks for considering.

Out of curiosity, are you using Verbum? I’m wondering if they already have the plans.

Of course not. The only reading plan I succeeded in getting implemented for the Catholics and Orthodox is the Optina Kellia readings - the Gospels essentially. Lip service for Lenten reading of John Climacus, the catechism,  Rule of St. Benedict, and the Bible is given regularly ... but with no visible results. I don't know whether this is the result of copyright concerns, staffing constraints, or priorities. I'd build them (or share those I've built) myself if I had any indication it would make any difference.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I wonder if it's possible to build my own. Ideally, I would like to use the Lexham Bible (based on the Septuagint and including the Apocrypha) for OT, Psalms, and Proverbs, and the Eastern / Greek Orthodox Bible (EOB) for the NT readings. Is there a way to combine these two texts into one Bible Reading Plan? Can the Logos software automatically divide these into daily readings?

You might want to start a separate thread. This is about bible reading plans that include the apocrypha.

Choose Generate a Reading Plan from Docs> New > Reading Plan and generate separate plans for the different bibles. Then combine them via  Custom Reading Plan from the previous menu.

See https://wiki.logos.com/Reading_Plan_$28Basics$29#A_Reading_Plan_with_Customizable_Sessions for more info.

When you have built the Lexham readings to your satisfaction,  experiment with the EOB plan to see how it will fit e.g. if you have a 374 session, each day Lexham plan, see how a NT plan for each day will be spread over 374 sessions. When you combine it, any breaks will be carried over to the Custom Plan. If you have a NT plan for 120 sessions, you can combine it three times (360 sessions) with different start dates in the 374 day plan. So use Sessions to determine the length of your plans rather than a time period.

Wasn't there a quote from somebody who said something like 'Life shouldn't be just so hard?

How to get logs and post them. (now tagging post-apocalyptic fiction as current affairs)
