A useful way of reading

This is not my first reading of even my first time to read a chronological Bible. I chose this copy because of the notes that addressed chronological issues. I was not disappointed. For reading straight through as I did it is helpful that the notes are in line with the text rather than accessed via footnotes. The reader may occasionally view the placement as an awkward interruption of the text - something that does not happen in the print edition since the notes there are

It was interesting to read the bible this way. I am kind of concrete in just wanting to start to read from Genesis to Revelation the way the Bible is "ordered" so this was a great way to shake things up so to speak in reading God's Word.

Excellent resource!

This Bible was so full of history and "behind the scenes" information that I feel I know the Bible so much deeper now.

The NIV Chronological Study Bible seeks to present the Scriptures in their probable chronological order, with historical notes, chronologies, maps and pictures throughout. This Bible has full color throughout, and the headers that note the changing of epochs are so vivid they almost look 3d. But sadly, some of the pictures were inappropriate/indecent and it's not very nice to have such things in one's Bible, let alone have them be so visually crystal clear.

I thought it was interesting that they

On the making of books there is no end and much study wearies the body (Ecclesiaties 12:12).

When Qoheleth penned these words, he could not have imagined how many times his own prose would be copied, translated, edited and bound. On the publishing of Bibles there is no end, and Study Bibles weary the Body. There is an ever-growing number of translations to choose from (i.e. CEB, ESV, NASB, NAB, GNB, The Message, KJV, NKJV, NIV, TNIV( now deceased), NIrV, Amplified Bible, Living Bible, NLV, ISV,

I have followed some chronological Bible reading plans before, but have never used a Chronological Bible, so this is my first one and I am delighted with it. It has several timelines and also a timeline across the bottom of every page indicating what year, or approximate year, you are in at whatever point you are at in your reading. As example of how this type of Bible arrangement works: when you reach the book of Acts and are reading at the time the letter to Galatians was probably written, the ...more

Features include:
-The entire text of the NIV translation with the order of events arranged chronologically
-General and sectional (e.g., Pentateuch, History, Prophets, Gospels) introductions on chronology and dating, including comparative charts of major systems and schemes
-Brief commentary in the form of transitions to help navigate the chronology

So I got an email a few weeks ago saying that a new NIV Chronological Study Bible was coming out soon and they needed reviews for it. I

In my opinion, book reviews are the hardest when it comes to Bibles. When reviewing a traditional book, I can look to the voice of the author, the style of writing, ecetera, for determining how well a book is written. In regards to the Bible, however, when I am handed five different styles of the NIV, for example, there is no basic voice change in the writing, as it it still the same translation. Thus, when I review a Bible, I look to what makes that Bible unique, which is its styling. In this ...more

"NIV Integrated Study Bible" is a NIV Bible (newest translation) presented chronologically with some timelines and section introductions. Different records of the same event or genealogy are shown side-by-side so that you can easily compare the accounts to get a fuller understanding. Similar events are also often put in with the same-event accounts, which can be confusing. Similar events are indicated with a gray rather than black column heading, but the difference in headings is not noticeable ...more

I received a copy of this Bible from Book Sneeze in exchange for an honest review.
From most of the reviews I've read of this Bible, most of the reviewers have 20+ Bibles in their home. I have two, one of them is this one. The other is a beat up paperback, written-on copy of the New Standard Revised Version (NSRV) that I picked up out of guilt at a used book store. I will admit that its been opened about 3 times. I thought that this would be a good way for me delve deeper into the Bible,

The Chronological Study Bible is the well know NIV version. This Bible has many neat features that I really like. There are full color illustrations which are neat because they are on the actual pages and the images fade into the writing. Making the images and pages beautiful. Some of the other features are Daily Life Notes, Transition Comments, Time Panels and Charts, Background Notes, and more. This Chronological version of the Bible means that the events are written in the order that they ...more

Taking a look through the Study Bible, I like the format a lot. It is simplified for easy reading. There is no commentary on the pages, but the top of the page gives a brief statement on where we are in the timeline of the Bible, and the bottom of the page shows the approximate year we are in, as well as main characters in play during that timeframe. While reading through passages, I can see some parts where other books are included due to them being the same chronological time. This, in its own ...more

If you are looking for a Bible whose strength lies in its ability to help you understand the Bible in the historical and cultural context in which the books were written, then the newly released The Chronological Study Bible, NIV from Thomas Nelson should be high on your wish list!

The full-featured Chronological Study Bible is visually stunning. This Bible is divided into 9 epochs (or periods of time) with the books placed in rough chronological order based on historical events occurring in our

I will admit, initially it was VERY confusing because I was studying on marriage and the role of wives (something I tend to do, because I have a weakness on the topic). Literally I had much of the Gospel side by side because (of course) the books occur concurrently. But then when I got to books like Ephesians & Colossians, it got really confusing because not only were similar text on the same page, you would see it occur several times as it happens with each book.

So overall, I now enjoy
