Format: Paperback
Last year I made a decision that I wanted to become a more spiritual person, and I felt one of the keys to that was to read the Bible. I filled out a calendar with due dates for each of the various books and started out - but failed miserably. A few weeks ago I was playing golf with a new acquaintance and he mentioned a daily reading bible that he had found to be a great help in reading and studying the bible. The chronological layout, he felt, was the greatest asset.

I found my way to a nearby Christian bookstore (the first time in my life) and looked at the verion my golf partner had recommended. It seemed like it would work, but then I found this version sitting next to it on the shelf. Immediately I was attracted to it for several reasons, but the most compelling was the author's explanations and introduction to the different sections. That extra information seemed to make the passages so much easier to understand.

So I've been reading this book for a while now - and actually keeping to my schedule - and I have to give it five stars for ease of reading and understanding (and keeping me on schedule!).

If you want to successfully read the bible I suppose any chronoligical version would do. But if you want to understand it and get some real enjoyment and knowledge from your reading then I can't think of a better purchase.

This chronological Bible reads like an adventure story. Each daily section has appropriate commentaries and valuable insights. The entire Bible is written in an easy to understand and digest format. It is also interesting to read. The Devotional Commentary leads you smoothly through the Scripture, painting the scene for what is about to be read with historical and spiritual insights. If you've had difficulty reading an entire Bible, this one will make it an easy and enjoyable, as well as spiritually uplifting experience.

Format: Hardcover
This is a chronological compilation of the scripture with great jewels of wisdom by the editor that explain what you are about to read in the next few verses. As a Bible student for many years, this edition has captured me, even in those geneologies, because of the explanations that tell me what is about to happen or why something is important and how it fits with events in other places in scripture. I highly recommend this to anyone at any level of spiritual maturity.

I have been interested in reading the bible chronologically for many years and have done so several times with the assistance of Chronological reading lists. This bible compares with the best of them and is much easier and simpler to use. Reading about the events of the bible in the order that they happened opens up the scriptures in an amazing way. Also has interesting historical and background information in an easy to read and understand format. If you want a little more out of your daily devotions this book is for you.

Although I've read the NIV Bible before, the Daily Bible has put the whole Bible in perspective for me. For the first time, I have been able to put pieces together -- it has come to life, so to speak. I highly recommend this Bible for anyone wanting to strengthen their understanding of God's word.

This Chronological Bible made the OT come to life & make sense. The author's commentary before the major sections were excellent. This is the best money I've ever spent.

I have been a Christian for many years, and every year, start out with the good intentions of reading the Bible in its entirety THIS year. Then, life gets in the way....and you know the rest of the story. Guilt and frustration kept me from picking up where I left off. Well, with this Bible, no more guilt and frustration!

Not only does this arrangement of the scriptures make the Biblical story more understandable for anyone, it is much easier to approach the Bible as a 'book' as one would any other book...from front to back cover!

Don't get bogged down by the dates at the beginning of each reading. If you get behind, just put a bookmark in and pick up where you left off. The dates are an incentive but not a discouragement. One can just keep reading page by page til the book is read ;-)

I have become somewhat of a crusader for this Bible, buying them for friends and family. I would not rely on this for my ONLY bible, but for daily reading of God's Word, it is the best I have found.
