    You probably have a favorite Bible that you are already using and taking notes in. It would be nice to be able to use the familiar to get a new perspective. That is where the Chronological Guide to the Bible comes in.This is not just a list that has you hopping back and forth within those 66 sacred writings. It will help you place your reading within the history of the people of God in the various eras of civilization that the Bible encompasses.The Chronological Guide will let you work with what is familiar to you and, you can use more than one translation along with the guide, to get you through those sticky sections.The Chronological Guide is appealing to the senses. I like books that feel and look good when I am studying. The paper is high quality. This is not your boring text book. There are pictures along with informative text. Maps locate the areas you are reading about. What did the fishing boats of Jesus time look like? See for yourself at the beginning of the section about Jesus advent. Want to see Hezekiahs Tunnel. Thats in the Chronological Guide. Artists renditions of the events in the Bible help us focus our thoughts and visualize what it might have been like.This is a book I will keep close to my Bible.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    It can be difficult to find a chronological Bible with just the right features and in a preferred translation. Some include commentary, others dont. Enter the Chronological Guide to the Bible: Explore Gods Word in Historical Order. Its a guide written by 13 contributors that can be used with any translation of the Bible. This guide includes a reading guide with passages listed in order and it accompanies the readers own Bible. It includes little check boxes next to each passage in case the reader wants to read through the entire Bible in order or it can be used to read scripture from specific eras. The authors divide the Bible into nine epochs of time.The book is attractive in full color with images on every other page. Im impressed by the amount of information included. Each epoch section in the book includes a visual time line showing when events happened as well as a time capsule listing significant events. There is background story about books of the Bible that relate to the culture of the time. There are outlines of each book and commentary on main themes in each epoch that read like mini historical articles. The top of each page lists the historical century for each epoch, making it easy to find information. Its packed with information and a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to study the Bible in more detail. The only thing I suggest could have been added to the book is a single page list of the chronological order for a quick checklist for reading. This would save the reader some searching through the book. I received a free review copy of this book from Thomas Nelson publishers in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    The Chronological Guide to the Bible: Explore Gods Word in Historical Order, is a lengthy title, but one word needs to stand out to you, history. The text located within the pages of this guide is dripping with the historical context often lost when reading the Bible in its present format. Pick this resource up and dive head first into the historically rich text that gives Gods story more depth for the everyday reader. It breaks the Bible down into nine epochs (a period of time in history or a person's life, typically one marked by notable events or particular characteristics,) that provide a clear timeline for the events of the Bible that are chronologically relevant to one another. For example, Epoch five provides the context of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. In the reading guide it goes as follows: 2 Kings 14:23-29, Jonah 1:1-4:11, Amos 1:1-9:15, etc. As you can see to gain the context for this time period numerous voices within Gods story are needed. Amos, Jonah and others provide different lenses for us to see the events that take place within the meta-narrative that is the Bible. Each chapter of the Bible is given an introduction and explanation as to why it is placed where it is not only in this text, but why it is placed where it is in the Bible as well. I really enjoyed the breakdown of the two viewpoints of the Exodus, with no weight placed on either one, just an explanation of both. The text is written in a way that allows for any translation of the Bible to be partnered with it.Pick up this book if you are a teacher of Gods word, as it will give you a clearer, more historical and a deeper understanding to Gods meta-narrative, The Bible.

    I love this book. I like the pictures, the historical information of the times, the archaeology information and even the coloring of the pages...beautiful. The only draw back that I can think of is that the type could be larger to be easier to read.
