Mark Dever’s Schedule for Reading Old Books

Mark Dever chronologically schedules old books into his reading. Genius. Insofar as this is a new year, I’m going to seek to follow his schedule, reading a book from each time period in its given month. Athanaisus’ On the Incarnation will be the book for January.

“Dever’s annual reading schedule is structured chronologically, and it looks something like this:

  • January: early church patristic writings (first through third centuries)
  • February: Augustine (354-430)
  • March: Martin Luther (1483-1546)
  • April: John Calvin (1509-1564)
  • May: Richard Sibbes (1577-1635)
  • June: John Owen (1616-1683) and John Bunyan (1628-1688)
  • July: Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758)
  • August: C. H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)
  • September: B. B. Warfield (1851-1921)
  • October: Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981)
  • November: C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) and Carl F. H. Henry (1913-2003)
  • December: Contemporary authors”
