Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Spiritual leaders of all generations have agreed upon the importance of daily Bible reading as a vital means of growth and maturity. Many Bible readers have wished for a method that would help them with the discipline of a regular, systematic study of God’s inspired Word. The One Year Chronological Bible not only meets this need but also gives you a perspective you cannot get from a Bible laid out in canonical order.

What is canonical order?
Canonical order is the order in which the books of the Bible are normally arranged. This order groups books of similar content together. The books of the Bible are arranged canonically in the following order: Law (Genesis—Deuteronomy), History (Joshua—Esther), Wisdom Literature (Job—Song of Songs), Prophets (Isaiah—Malachi), Gospels (Matthew—John), Early Church History (Acts), Pauline Epistles (Romans—Philemon), General Epistles (Hebrews—Jude), and Apocalyptic Literature (Revelation). The canonical order was developed by Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin in the late fourth century AD.

Although Jerome’s order is logical, it does not clearly represent the order in which the events of the Bible unfolded. For instance, why are the books that record the Israelites’ return from captivity (Ezra and Nehemiah) arranged before the prophetic books that predict their exile (Jeremiah and Ezekiel)? Or how do the four accounts of Christ’s life fit together? To give you a more historical perspective, the Scriptures in The One Year Chronological Bible have been arranged in chronological order.

What is chronological order?
Chronological order is the order in which the events occurred in time. In The One Year Chronological Bible, all Scripture is arranged according to the time sequence of the events. The return of the Israelites from captivity, therefore, comes after the earlier prophets and Daniel, rather than before them. In addition, all four accounts of Christ’s life are woven together, giving a clear picture of Christ’s time on earth from his birth to his ascension into heaven. Furthermore, The One Year Chronological Bible divides the entire Bible into 365 daily readings. This easy-to-use reading plan helps you get through the entire Bible in one year.

Other One Year Bible products are available in canonical order, in which portions of the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs make up each daily reading. These One Year Bible products come in the New Living Translation, King James Version, New King James Version, and New International Version. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I have enjoyed reading this every day and hope to get it all read in a year!
Glenda Barber
I have enjoyed reading the One Year Chronological Bible NIV as it is easy to read and it is easy to understand.
David V. Clark
It is very easy to read and more interesting than reading a particular book of the bible all at one time.

The "One Year Chronological Bible" is a wonderful way to gain a comprehensive overview of the what, where and when of the Bible through a planned guide of yearly readings. The Bible is finally put into its historical order (as understood by conservative, evangelical scholars), allowing readers to fit the kings, kingdoms, people, and work of God into an understandable format for any reader. The daily reading plan allows one to go through the entire Bible in a year by following an easily a managable format. This is a great resource for students, teachers, or anyone wanting to have a better understanding of the Bible - both Old and New Testaments - and its times.

I have always struggled to read through the Bible in a year. I would start out in January ok, but by March, it was pretty much done for the year. I would then start the next year all over again, always with the same results. That was before I got a Bible that actually told me what to read every day to be on schedule. And then I found out that in addition to that, there is this chronological Bible with the events more or less in the order they happened! I'm hooked now on daily Bible reading and think that if it was easy for others to do, they'd be hooked on it too!

I am now convinced more than anything else that a vigorous spiritual life absolutely requires regular reading and pondering God's Holy Word. I've always struggled with this up to now. Thanks to the daily Chronological Bible, I now look forward each afternoon when I get home from work to see what God will teach me through His word. And because it is in chronological order, the reading is more like a connected story rather than just 66 independent books strung together. Plus, you never really know what you will be reading next, depending on the sequence of events that took place all those years ago. It is a fresh look at a very familiar book, and a new adventure! And the NIV translation is accurate, relevant, and modern, which makes the reading more interesting and meaningful.

I now commit to taking the 15 minutes each day to read through that day's Word with sincerity and diligence. I'm all but convinced that my life is changing due to this commitment, and for the better! God now takes on new meaning in my life, and I have new, fresh relevance as I struggle to live every day.

...I will never forget the first time I read the Bible through in chronological order. It was such an eye-opening experience that I have to say it literally changed my life and the way I think and meditate on scripture. What happens to a believer when they do this is hard to express. But suddenly all those seemingly obscure prophetic passages begin to take on new meaning as you realize when this prophet actually lived and what was going on around him when he prophesied. So, I have always told my children to read the Bible through in chronological order. You can study what you want as you go, but read it daily in chronological order. Make that daily deposit in your heart and let His Word grow.

...My first experience with reading chronologically was done with a reading chart. Over the years I have found several different reading charts that proport to put the Bible in chronological order. While all of these charts are absolutely great, and sometimes represent countless hours or even lifetimes of work in putting them together, the problem is that you end up flipping back and forth between passages in a regular Bible. The great thing about this Bible is that the passages are put in order for you in a very comfortable daily reading. This makes it very easy to jut pick up daily and read... no flipping around!

...The only things I don't like about it are:

...(1) I'm not a big fan of the NIV translation, although it is certainly very easy to read. This translation, while giving you a very clear reading, doesn't really tell you what words were added to the translation (like the NKJV or KJV and others do with italics).

This is one of three Bibles I purchased this summer. I probably will not read it as a one-year project: already did that once and was never so glad to have December 31 roll around; that edition is the only Bible I ewver sold at a yard sale. But this is a very interesting version. For example, we'e beentold Job is one of the oldest books in the Bible, and in this edition, there it is, the reading for January 5- 17, mixed in with Genesis. The Psalms are incorporated in the parts of the OT story where they were probably written and the four gospels are "cut-and-pasted" to compare all available versions of the same story. The epistles are in time sequence, not the traditional "length" sequence. This ought to be vey useful in study and preparation for teaching. The "book" is a bit "squatty" looking (thick compared to height and width) but the printing is very nice. As a NIV it is readable but scholarly, too. Worth the money.
