In addition to the normal New Year's resolutions like losing weight and getting organized, white Christians all resolve to spend more time reading the Bible each year. However, expert-level (and wannabe expert-level) white Christians take this up a notch and pledge to read the entire Bible in one calendar year. If completed, this is the biggest accomplishment a white Christian can achieve in a single year.
Those that undertake this challenge quickly find that it is more daunting than they first realized. Based on the its thickness, the Bible appears to be about the length of a John Grisham novel, but the white Christian soon discovers that due to super thin pages and tiny print, the Word is deceptively wordy.
White Christians feel plenty guilty about not reading the Bible enough in a normal year, but after stalling somewhere in Leviticus and realizing they are unlikely to get through the Torah, let alone the whole Bible by year's end, the crushing shame will cause them to resolve to set the bar a little lower the next year.
