The premise of this book is really interesting. Do you know the chronological order for the books of the Bible? When were the Prophets writing their books? When did David live? Wouldn’t it be neat to read the Books in the order that they were written? Rhodes helps us do just that in this book.
It gets you through the whole Bible in a year and so you read several chapters or a book each day. Each daily devotional starts with a reminder of what was read the day before, and then it moves on to a

This book is a perfect guide for reading the Bible in one year. The reading plan is organized according to the (supposed) historical order in which the Biblical events took place and there's a reading for each day. Each day also gives a short overview over the concepts in the passage, how that passage connects to the greater principles of the Christian faith, highlights a special verse and has a question for reflection. The author also divides the Bible into several parts and there's an introduc ...more

This is such a valuable book, it presents an overview of the whole bible in chronological order. You can read it as a whole or use it as a daily study as it is split into 365 studies and is grouped into nine eras of time:

Era 1: Beginnings (the undated past–1800 BC)
Era 2: The Birth of Israel (1800–1406 BC)
Era 3: Possessing the Promised Land (1406–1050 BC)
Era 4: The United Monarchy (1050–930 BC)
Era 5: The Kingdom Divided (930–586 BC)
Era 6: Living in Exile (586–538 BC)
Era 7: The Return from E

When you read different books of the Bible, do you get confused about the order of events; for example, how the message of a prophet in one book fits into the timeline of activity recorded in another book? Or when and where the stories of Scripture took place and why it’s important to understand these details?

Mr. Rhodes has provided a 365-day devotional taking the reader through the entire Bible in chronological order. Readings are approximately of the same length (there are exceptions – some shorter some longer). The author makes no statement about whose chronology he has chosen to follow; but, rather, makes the following general statement, “My personal view is that so much study has been done on all this through the years that it’s now possible to put together a chronology with a strong confidence ...more

I really enjoyed this book! It can be very easy in chronological-style books to get lost and even overwhelmed by all the information. I did not have that issue with this book! The author does an extraordinary job of breaking down the pertinent information for each day's reading. It was easy to read and I highly recommend it.

What I like most about Ron Rhodes’ A Chronological Tour Through the Bible are the 5 sections for each passage he covers, such as the key concept, the big picture, transformational truth, a verse for meditation, and a question to ponder. Rhodes also covers 9 Era’s of the bible starting with Era 1 - Beginnings (the updated past to 1800 bc) to Era 9 - The Early church (AD 30-95).

You get it all from start to finish in a chronological order that makes sense including the many Jewish traditions. Thi

A Chronological Tour Through the Bible was very well organized, easy to read with clear and concise information.

The author gives descriptions, interpretation, applications, scripture readings, chronology based on history and archeological data. Each days chapte ...more

Pretty cool book. It's good to see the Bible in chronological context to get a better picture of what's going on. The information in the various books is tied together as there can be overlaps, especially in the synoptic gospels.

This book lends itself well to daily reading. There is a section "The Creation and the Fall" for example, with Bible verses to read, followed by the key concept, the big picture, a transformational truth, a verse for meditation, and a question to ponder..

This book is an excellent resource to use as a study guide for Bible readers. It helps clarify events in an understandable timeline for as they occurred in the Bible. Not a book you can read quickly, should be used in conjunction with regular daily Bible study.

Whenever I review books on this topic, I look at how the author treats key passages in the Bible. I know that everyone will not agree on everything but there are some areas where there should be like minds. This author did not meet that standard. In key passages like Genesis 3, John 3, and John 14 to name a few, the author went pass the critical points in such a way that I thought I had missed them. So, I went back to make sure and realized that I was right—he glossed over them in a way that mad ...more

A thoughtful and use book about the Bible and the way this complicated text works. I would gladly use this book as a resource for personal reference or as a Bible teacher.

If you, like me, have tried to read the books of the Bible in a chronological order, you have probably had to flick about and research a lot! The power of reading the chapters in time sequence goes without question. It gives context to the happenings and integrates what happens, psalms have more meaning, how Jonah fits into the bigger historical story and so on.

In addition to this unbelievably helpful part of A chronological tour through the Bible, Ron Rhodes highlights five aspects each day coi
