Fire Starters are designed to help you read and study through the New Testament in one year, regardless of when and where you start. But, even if you aren't following the one-year track, you can still select the Fire Starter that corresponds to whatever you are reading in the Bible on any given day. The Fire Starters provide 10 to 20 minutes of study, including the Bible reading.
