We are incredibly excited to announce that you can now listen to the Bible in a Year podcast with Fr. Mike Schmitz on Hallow.
In this first-of-its-kind partnership, Hallow has teamed up with Ascension Press, the creators and producers of Bible in a Year, to make the podcast available on Hallow.
Launched on January 1, 2021, it has quickly reached #1 on the Apple Podcast charts GLOBALLY.
About the Podcast
Bible in a Year takes you on a 365 day journey through the entire Bible.
Each day features a 20-25 minute episode where Fr. Mike reads a passage from the Bible, shares a brief reflection, and guides you into a Lectio Divina meditation on the passage.
In 365 days, you will not only get to read the entire Catholic Bible, cover to cover, but actually understand how it all fits together. PLUS you will be able to pray through the whole thing.
One of the unique and beautiful parts of this study is that Fr. Mike uses the timeline from The Great Adventure Bible. This timeline was developed by Jeff Cavins and is designed to help you better understand salvation history in an easily digestible format. Be on the lookout for Jeff in a number of bonus episodes throughout the podcast.
Oh – and it’s totally free.
Commit to growing deeper in your relationship with God through daily reading and reflections on His Word. Join us in listening to the Bible in a Year on Hallow!
