I was super excited with the reviews and the fact I got this Bible on a half price sale! I dove right in and have almost completed it in only 4 months, however I feel like I would be done a lot sooner if I wasn't constantly re-reading what I've already read. For instance Moses died 4 times. It's like they tried to do Chronological but then decided to put it in order the original order too, how Moses died 4 times I don't get it... several prophets died several times too. And Kings and others... you get the picture.
Now I'm in the new testament and they put back to back a paragraph from each Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. So basically instead of reading one book then another, you're reading almost identical stories 4 times in a row, sometimes the paragraph is a whole page, sometimes 4-5 sentences. Then re-read again and again... It makes it hard to follow and understand. There's also a lot of information that I wouldn't miss if it weren't there. I just want to study and learn about Jesus and God, not find out all the pagen holidays, dieties, rituals etc. I do not care for this Bible at all. Now I'm thinking $45 was outrageous for this book. Does anyone want mine?
I am so pleased with my new chronological Bible. I wasn't sure what I wanted before I ordered, but when this one came on sale in December I decided to try it. The extra information provided really educates me about the times, geography, cultures, etc. and the color enhances the pages to make them very attractive. I really like the concordance as well. I recommend this Bible to everyone.
