It may seem I'm just another voice among many. I do believe the truth will win. I believe, other than drawing close to God in worship, one of the greatest and most profitable things you can do is to read Scripture the way God gave it, book by book. Some books are together, like the first 5 or torah. The following book should follow the reading of the torah. Joshua begins with the word, "And" indicationg a continuation of what went before.
One of the best methods to read the Bible, remembering it is whole books at a time, is to place a marker at Genesis, Psalms and Matthew. Every time you read a chapter in one book you should read a chapter in all 3 books. If you read 3 chapters a day you'll finish the Bible in under a year. 14 chapters a day, very much more than you'd expect, will have you finishing the Bible (N.T. twice) in a little less than With this method you'll read the Hebrew portion through once for every twice through the New Testament. When the Genesis marker gets to Psalms, put it back and start with Genesis again. When the Psalms marker finishes Malachi, put the marker back at the beginning of Psalms. When you've gone from Matthew through Revelation, start Matthew again.
This is the best plan I've yet found and it is a very simple one.
I know this isn't using so many possible defences for knowing Scripture; but, ignorance of the written word accounts for much suffering. If you read enough of it you may find, as many already have, there is health and healing in there. In it there is wisdom and knowledge and power, as well as riches, strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. All such things many testify came to them through obeying the knowledge God has given in the Scripture.
