UrailakOregonAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful BibleJuly 15, 2014UrailakOregonAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I had always wanted to have a chronological Bible; therefore, I was quite excited when I got an opportunity to review this particular Bible. The Chronological Study Bible (NIV) presents the text of the Bible arranged in chronological order as the events actually took place. It includes Daily Life Notes (with various topics such as Marriage & Family, Politics & Government, Science & Technology, Trade & Economics, Plants & Animals, Health & Medicine, Arts & Literature, and more), Background Notes, transition commentaries, historical overviews, Time Panels, Time Charts, Time Capsules, and color maps that help readers understand life, culture, history, events, and locations in Bible times. I love the colorful illustrations and photos of places, people, and artifacts. This Bible is divided into 9 epochs. Each one starts with an introduction. At the end of the Bible, you'll find an index of Cultural and Historical Topics, glossary, concordance, an index of Scriptural passages, and daily reading plans. This beautiful Bible is an excellent resource for anyone who loves to study the Bible, enjoys history, and wants to explore God's Word in chronological order. Bonuses: This Bible is guaranteed for life (you can register online for your lifetime guarantee) and it provides the link to a free Bible Study Tools download. The only thing that I don't like about this Bible is that it uses the gender-neutral approach which is politically correct but not Biblically correct. I'm really disappointed about that!

Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5May 6, 2014Dr JSKAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The NIV Chronological Study Bible: Explore God's Word In Order, published by Thomas Nelson, is a unique Study Bible that offers its readers a new perspective on the events and circumstances of The Bible.
My reaction to receiving a new Bible can only be compared to an adolescent that has been given free range of a toy store. To say I was excited about the opportunity to receive and review the NIV Chronological Study Bible would be a drastic understatement, for I am grateful to say the least.
While I own numerous Bibles, published in a multitude of versions, there is always room for one more if it has the ability to guide my study of scripture in a unique manner, if it has the ability to enhance my walk with Christ, The NIV Chronological Study Bible certainly has this ability.
What makes this Bible unique is the manner in which it is laid out. The passages of scripture, as well as individual events, are arranged in chronological order, the order that correlates to the time of the events narrated in each book or passage allowing the reader to experience all the events of the Bible in their sequential order no matter the passage or book in which they were recorded.
Transition commentaries aid the reader in the understanding of the placement and chronology of the related passages and how they relate to the ancient history. These commentaries help guide the student through the history and culture of the Bible.
There are many other wonderful aspects to this Bible, such as Time Capsules, Time Panels, Background Notes, Historical Overviews, etc. all of which contribute to the intensity and power of this Bible, but are to numerous to go into detail in this review.
While I would not recommend this Bible to become your everyday go to Bible, I do recommend its purchase, as it has the power to greatly bless your time of study.

KaraAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5April 25, 2014KaraAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Chronological Study Bible, published by Thomas Nelson in the New International Version, is designed to take the reader on a "journey through the history and culture of the Bible." Its goal is to assist readers in correlating Biblical history with secular history in order to understand the reasoning behind events in the Bible.
In order to accomplish this, The Chronological Study Bible includes several features. The entire text is rearranged in chronological order within nine epochs of time. There is transition commentary relating not only one passage to another, but also each passage to world history. Epoch introductions help to explain each period of time. Historical overviews highlight important historical happenings of the time. Other features include background notes, daily life, time panels, time capsules, time charts, maps, scripture references, glossary, concordance, and index of scripture passages.
I was impressed with this Bible. It is a unique approach to scripture that I had not seen before. I especially liked the color illustrations and maps. I would recommend this Bible to anyone truly looking for an in depth study of God's Word.
I received this Bible free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.

cindyGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Good ResourceApril 14, 2014cindyGender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The Chronological Study Bible in the New International Version presents scripture in the order in which the events actually happened. Included within the chapters are notes, articles, and full-color graphics and maps that help the reader understand the the culture of Bible times in their proper historical and chronological context.
This bible is divided into epochs, each of which represents a period of time that is characterized by peculiar features or events. For example, Epoch 8 is about the life and ministry of Jesus and includes the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John with the accounts of Jesus' acts arranged in chronological order, meaning that the chapters from the four gospels are mixed together. In other words, you won't read the gospel of Matthew from start to finish without some chapters from the other gospels mixed in so that the chronological order of the actual events is intact, as witnessed by each of the disciples.
This arrangement takes some getting used to as it is different from the traditional order of scripture. It takes a little more effort to find specific scriptures but the extra commentary that this Bible includes makes it worth the adjustment. As the contributors explain, the goal was not to replace "the time-honored canonical arrangement, but instead to honor time as the setting in which the biblical record appeared" and becomes a tool to equip readers with the historical and cultural perspective of the time in which various scripture was written.
The helpful features throughout this bible include lots of illustrations as well as notes on politics and government, cultural practices, science and technology, and arts and literature that influenced people during certain time periods, all of which help the reader understand the context from which scripture was written.
Over all I think this is a very helpful resource for students of the Bible as it keeps scripture intact while providing an historical and chronological perspective.
