Chronological Guide to the Bible

Many of you are aware that over the last few months I’ve been reading through the Bible {and finished!!}. My next goal is to read through it again, this time chronologically.

When Thomas Nelson offered me the opportunity to review the Chronological Guide to the Bible I was excited ~ it would be a great companion to my reading and provide extra insight into my studies.

The Chronological Guide to the Bible works with any Bible translation and goes through the Nine Epochs of Biblical History. It offers insight into the various cultures and people talked about throughout the Bible. The pages are full-color and the book also supplies reading guides and introductions for each book of the Bible.

The purpose of the book is:

‘…not to replace the time-honored canonical arrangement, but instead to honor time as the setting in which the biblical record appeared.’

Introduction

This isn’t a book that needs to be read from front to back, but can picked up at any point in the book if you are looking for more information for a specific part of the Bible. Also included in the book are maps, historical timelines, and a deeper look into each of the epochs of the Bible. The pages are packed with information {overwhelming in some aspects}, but it is definitely one that I will keep close by when I start working on my chronological Bible reading next month.

  1. This sounds perfect! Can't tell you how many times I've been reading and wondered something about the culture, etc. that I believe would help me understand better what I am reading.

  3. This sounds great! I considered reading chronologically last year but decided I couldn't wait that long to get into the New Testament! I would like to do it though. Congratulations on completing your 90 day read. I'm sure reading the Bible as a whole makes quite a differetn impression than reading piecemeal.
    God bless you!
