When I was about 20 yrs. old I was asked by a Minister in our church who my favorite fictional author was. I told him I was reading the complete works of Sherlock Holmes by Doyle.
He asked if I skipped chapters and pages or read part of one story then skipped to another. When I told him I read a story from start to finish he asked me why I would read the greatest book ever written any differently.
That was 25 yrs ago. I have since read the Bible from cover to cover 4 times. It was the best advice I ever received. Thanks to Pastor Stewart I've learned more than I could possibly have imagined.
