Product Description

Stories are basic to life. Everybody loves a good story. We have been reading, listening to, or watching stories all of our lives, so we intuitively know a lot about how they work. Yet, more and more, Christians are unfamiliar with the stories of the Bible and how the grand narrative of God's Word fits together. Indeed, God gave us the stories of the Bible to reveal great truth about Himself and about our lives, and He wants to draw us into the ongoing story of what He is doing in the world. By focusing on the narrative framework of Scripture we can better understand what the Bible teaches and live out its instruction more effectively.
Reading God's Story features two-color interior page layout and is organized into 52 weeks of readings (six readings per week). It presents Scripture in three main acts:
  1. God’s Plan for All People
  2. God’s Covenant People
  3. God’s New Covenant People
It provides an introduction for each act so you can grasp its importance in the grand story. Unlike other chronological Bibles, this arrangement is not date specific (e.g. “January 1”), so you can begin using this edition at any point in the calendar year.
Features
  • Complete text of the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) arranged chronologically.
  • Full-color  maps
  • Lined pages for personal notes
  • Introductions to each "Acts"
  • Weekly summaries & meditation for the prior week
  • Sections not dated—begin whenever you want
  • Access to a free App & daily audio podcasts to keep you connected
  • 8.75" x 5.75" X 1.75"

Publisher's Description

Stories are basic to life. Everybody loves a good story. We have been reading, listening to, or watching stories all of our lives, so we intuitively know a lot about how they work. Yet, more and more, Christians are unfamiliar with the stories of the Bible and how the grand narrative of God's Word fits together. Indeed, God gave us the stories of the Bible to reveal great truth about Himself and about our lives, and He wants to draw us into the ongoing story of what He is doing in the world. By focusing on the narrative framework of Scripture we can better understand what the Bible teaches and live out its instruction more effectively. 

Reading God's Story takes that clear narrative approach to the Bible, arranging the complete text into a fresh chronological reading plan developed for the Read the Bible for Life biblical literacy initiative. In this plan the books, chapters, and verses of the Bible are thoughtfully arranged so readers can track the story of Scripture, day by day, from beginning to end, understanding the flow of events and how all the different parts fit together to make sense. 

Reading God's Story features two-color interior page layout and is organized into 52 weeks of readings (six readings per week). It presents Scripture in three main acts (God's Plan for All People; God's Covenant People; God's New Covenant People) and seventeen total scenes, providing an introduction for each act and scene to orient the reader to its importance in the grand story. Unlike other chronological Bibles, this arrangement is not date specific (e.g. "January 1"), so a person can begin using this edition at any point in the calendar year.

    In general, I like this chronological Bible. I have the digital version as well as the hardback. I am disappointed that the digital version does not have an index like the hardback does. I haven't tried reading it in my tablet yet, but using FBReader under Linux, I'm not able to search for specific passages of scripture, so an index would have been very helpful.

    I'm enjoying this Bible so far. I've just begun reading it and have gotten as far as Jacob in the book of Genesis. This Bible reads almost like a novel. The words haven't changed, just the format. I would have much preferred the Bible in genuine leather though. Hopefully, one will come out in the future.

    I have appreciated reading this chronological Bible. As a long time Bible reader, I have wanted one like this for quite a while, just to help my understanding of the timelines. I have liked the IPAD version because I can take it with me and adjust the font. The only thing I don't like, is that I cannot mark where I am. It says, "Check here when you complete the days reading" but nothing checks. Thankfully, when I open it, it opens to the correct place. However, I would like to be able to actually know where I am. I also really like that it is laid out by day and week, not by month. So I could start it as soon as I got it and not wait until January.

    This is a great way to read the Bible daily. The events are in the order that they happened. Different books of the Bible are mingles to put the events in order. You can not take it to church to use because of this. It is a great tool. It explodes your Bible and you understand it so much more.
