This chronological Bible is beautiful and easy to read with all its colors. It is loaded with timelines and other charts. I chose the KJV because I love the richness of this translation and because I was raised on it . The KJV has such a never ending depth of its meanings. I am now looking for this Bible on CD or some digital format to add to my laptop and phone. I haven't found it yet but will continue to look. Portable digital is the future Bible.
I found a large sample of this Bible on the internet and was very impressed. I researched the Bible on the Christian Book Distributors web site. I surf CBD for best information and a competitive price. I think anyone who wants to dig deep into the Bible should invest in this Bible because I have found information in it I have found no where else.
I rate CBD a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. I have been buying Bibles and other books from CBD for as long as I can remember. I give extra catalogs to my friends. I have a large Bible library with most of its contents being purchased from CBD. CBD is one of the best Christian resources I have ever found. Great helpful friendly staff too.
I wanted to be able to understand the Bible myself and be able to teach my kids. This Bible allows to me to do that, and more. I love how it's written in a way that everyone can understand, even someone who wasn't raised in the Word. I have recommended this to everyone I know!
Tyndale Chronological Life Application Study Bible
King James Version
Published by Tyndale House Publishers
The Chronological Life Application Study Bible presents the Bible in a chronological manner. Rather than being broken down into the books we are all familiar with the Bible is presented in a historical timeline. Naturally Genesis still starts everything off because as it says "In the beginning God created..."
But there is some much more that this Bible has to offer - there is a complete Biblical timeline in which Biblical events and significant world events are shown in relation to one another.
There are also short yet concise biographical overview of key people in the Bible with scriptural references to where they are mention throughout the Bible
There are also themes to the various sections and those delved into and major events, people, geographical settings, and Biblical books are presented at the beginning of the section. Likewise between the two Testaments a short overview of the history and major events effecting the Hebrew people and the world is presented setting the world scene for Jesus' birth.
I really like the Section overviews and the Chronological Header System that lets you know what time period your current Bible passage is in. At the back of the Bible there is a Book-by-Book where the books are individually presented with an overview and the main themes/message. There is also a Dictionary/Concordance and region maps to further bring greater understanding of the Bible. Also I also found the Biblical Calendar very interesting comparing our modern months to Hebrew and Babylonian months.
I will admit it takes a little bit of time to get used to the Bible not being in a book format - I especially found this to be true in the Gospels rather than in the Old Testament. But it was interesting seeing and reading the Gospels together in this format. But the beauty and poetic appeal of the language of the KJV still comes through. This is definitely a Bible that have an appeal to anyone wanting to study the historical aspects of the Bible.
I was provided a copy of this Bible by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
