By frequent reading, this gross ignorance which, in this cursed papistry, has overflowed all, may partly be removed.  We think it most expedient that the Scripture be read in order, that is, that some one book of the Old or New Testament be begun and orderly read to the end.  And the same we judge of preaching, where the minister, for the most part, remains in one place.  Skipping and deviating from place to place in Scripture, be it in reading or be it in preaching, we judge not so profitable to edify the church as the continual following of one text.John Knox (ca. 1514-1572)
