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 Gods 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 (GenesisDeuteronomy), History (JoshuaEsther), Wisdom Literature (JobSong of Songs), Prophets (IsaiahMalachi), Gospels (MatthewJohn), Early Church History (Acts), Pauline Epistles (RomansPhilemon), General Epistles (HebrewsJude), and Apocalyptic Literature (Revelation). The canonical order was developed by Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin in the late fourth century AD.
Although Jeromes 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 Christs life fit together? To give you a more historical perspective, the Scriptures inThe 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 Christs life are woven together, giving a clear picture of Christs 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 an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Here is the response I got from Tyndale Publishers when I inquired about the difference between the two:
"There will always be a difference between the two translations due to the fact that the scholars that worked on both translations differed in their opinion with regards to the time, order, and dating of Biblical events/books of the Bible. Biblica owns the rights to the NIV translation which is mainly published by Zondervan. We own the rights to the NLT. In my 5 years here this difference has not changed. It goes down to textual criticism and translation done by our Bible team and scholars. We differ on the arrangement of our chronological Bibles."
All of this is fine in the big picture, but I do wish that the publisher would offer a SINGLE chronology in a variety of Bible translations so that folks would not be limited to a single translation for that chronology. Also, I wish they would clearly differentiate between the two products so that they do not appear to be the same product line and interchangeable.
In fact, I liked this Bible so much, that I bought 5 more for friends. I purchased my first one at a book store and had to pay more there than i did for the ones I purchased through amazon.
