Church of Christ (James Bannerman) 2017 Reading Plan

A few of us have decided to tackle James Bannerman’s The Church of Christ in 2017. A quick google search didn’t come up with any reading plans, so I’ve put one together. It’s not the most polished but it should be functional at least. It’s done by sections rather than page numbers, which means it doesn’t matter whether you’re reading the original 2-volume edition (reprinted by the Banner of Truth), Banner’s nice re-set 2015 edition, or a kindle/epub edition.

The vast majority of Bannerman’s sections are around 14-18 pages, though there are a couple of longer sections, which are marked with an asterisk so you can see them coming. The reading plan doesn’t include the 128-page appendix, so keep that in mind if you’re a completionist. The appendix is divided into 9 sections, so you could do one each month that there isn’t a long section of the main book to read.

To whet your appetite for the book, check out these videos from Westminster Theological Seminary’s ‘Evening Discussion on the Bride of Christ’ featuring Carl Trueman, Nathan Sasser and Jonathan Leeman (I enjoyed Sasser’s talk the most):
