    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.

    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.

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 note that, "The Bible is not a theology book arranged according to topics: God, man, sin, salvation, etc. Nor is it simply a chronicle of events from creation to the final consummation. Historical events are often the Bible's subject matter, but these events are always reported from a particular perspective. That perspective is theological history. It is in the arena of history that he has chosen to make himself known. " But I must add that though it is not arranged according to topics, it is still a, or rather, the theology book. I'm not positive why it is called a 'study Bible', as the notes seem more historically and culturally informative than exegetical. Sometimes they do delve into concepts a little more, but I found myself disagreeing with them. I'll give three instances: First, they seem to not believe in a literal six day creation. And second, in 1 Corinthians 7, they come to the conclusion that Paul allows divorced Christians to remarry. Third, they are feministic in their explanation of the role of a wife in a marriage, they make it seem like male headship was a cultural thing, not a Biblical institution. For instance, "If female authority was allowed in the church, opposition may have increased against the small Christian community." and, "The model for how to best win over these husbands to Christianity involves adopting the societal norms of a wife's submissiveness…." And in another place they sound like they are apologizing for the Apostle's statement: "Paul's command 'Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands' (Eph 5:22) is at least partly related to concern for Christian witness within the surrounding culture, and is quite mild in comparison to the rest of his culture." They are apparently disregarding 1 Timothy 2:11-15 which makes the differing roles of males and females to be of God, not from the culture. Also, I didn't like some of the chronological arrangement. For instance, they have prophecies from Isaiah being read after the fall of Jerusalem. Part of their reasoning is that, "Other prophetic passages speak of times later than the traditional date of composition for the passage itself. For example, parts of the Book of Isaiah refer to events that took place centuries after the prophet Isaiah lived. Though Isaiah prophesied in Jerusalem during the 8th century B. C., the passage of Isa 44:28; 45:1 refers by name to Cyrus, a Persian king who lived in the 6th century . For this reason , some chapters form the Book of Isaiah appear in the time of Cyrus…" Umm… didn't God have the prophets prophecy LOTS of things that hadn't happened yet? It would hardly be unthinkable for God to have the prophets give out a particular name of someone in the future. Besides, right before God starts prophetically addressing Cyrus He states, "I am the Lord, the maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself, who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense, who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the predictions of his messengers." All in all, there are too many negatives for me to highly recommend this Chronological Bible.

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

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, NKOTB, Jerusalem Bible, New Jerusalem Bible, God’s Word Translation, RSV, NRSV, and more). There are also devotional Bibles marketed to ever niche from teenage girls to used car salesman (I’m exaggerating, slightly). Study Bible’s are no better. There is a constant deluge of new study Bibles, each boasting a unique lens, approach, or aimed at a particularly age group, denomination or theological camp. The Bible is inspired but the notes seldom are. Still there are some great resources for those seeking to go deeper into the Biblical text. Here is a Bible I think will be a beneficial for those wanting to go deeper into biblical history. The NIV Integrated Study Bible (NIVISB) presents the entire Bible in chronological order. When events are described by more than one biblical author, they appear in parallel columns (2-4). Geneologies are paralleled by then repeated later in their actual context. For example, Genesis 5, shows parallels in 1 Chronicles 1:1-4, and Luke 3:36b-38. But these also appear later in 1 Chronicles 1, and Luke 3, respectively. The effect is that the reader can see at a glance how events and people in biblical history relate to one another. This is particularly helpful in relating the history books and the prophets, or in illuminating gospel parallels. It is also helpful for navigating how some of Paul’s letters fit within Acts. The NIVISB is edited by John R. Kohlenberger III and organized under six chronological categories: (1) Creation through the Patriarchs, (2) Conquest Through United Kingdom, (3) Divided Kingdom & Exile; (4) Return to the Land, (5) The Life of Jesus and (6) The Early Church. Additionally there are other helpful aids, like a timeline on the bottom of each page which locates the passages in the broad sweep of Biblical history, brief commentary linking transition between each era, and charts which illuminate each era. An index at the back of the Bible, aids in finding passages quickly. Resources like this are helpful, because they do at a glance what cross references and commentaries do for us: they remind you of a passage’s place within the larger biblical story and show how different books relate together. I find this helpful. Nevertheless there are drawbacks to this format. First, it examines the Bible through a historical lens, but breaks up literary units. It is important to also read these passages in their own habitat. Second, this is the work of a New Testament scholar, giving his best guess on the chronology and timeline. Not every commentator would agree with all of Kohlenberger’s choices, though I think in the main, his timeline is quite reasonable. Third, on a practical level, those most at home in the traditional canon will have some difficulty in navigating to particular passages. But Kohlenberger doesn’t intend for this Bible to replace all others. His proposal is more modest. This is an aid for studying one aspect of scripture and helping readers grasp historical connections. He also suggests several other resources for digging into the text (conveniently all published by Zondervan).I give it four stars. ★★★★ Notice of material connection: I received this book for free from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.

    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 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 book of Galatians is inserted 'into', as it were, the book of Acts and you read it as a part of the account instead of as a separate book. It is so nice not to have to keep turning back and forth every few minutes in order to read chronologically, instead you can just read right through, simply turning one page after another. When you are done, you can just place a bookmark where you stopped instead of having to mark the spot on a reading chart when you are done. So convenient! Not only is this chronological, it also uses a parallel column format at times. For instance, since the four Gospels recount some of the same events, instead of placing them one right after another, these chronologically 'parallel' accounts are placed side by side in two, three, or even four columns. Oh, and be sure to read the introduction to this Bible first. I did not do this at first and thus had a misconception for a while that the people who arranged this Bible were fudging the chronological aspect by placing the repetition of the law that was given when Israel is finally about to enter the promised land, parallel to the first giving of the law about forty years earlier. Later on I examined their arrangement again, and found that they actually repeated this recounting of the law when it is reached at the correct time. If I had read the introduction first I would have found that they use 'conceptual parallels' and not just chronological parallels: "Conceptual parallels occur primarily in the books of Moses when similar commands and instructions are repeated in different historical settings...In order to keep genealogies and conceptual parallels in their historical setting, they are repeated whenever they appear in the chronological presentation..." Conceptual parallels are indicated by a light grey title instead of the normal solid black title. The text of the NIV 2011 seems fine so far, though I know there has been some concern over the rendering of some verses, such as changing New Testament epistles addressed to 'brothers' as 'brothers and sisters'. I don't really like and would prefer a more literal translation, but can overlook it. Daniel Wallace(professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary) has some articles on his blog critiquing the new NIV that you may find interesting. I do LOVE that they still have the footnotes that the old NIV had, regarding different renderings of verses in the Septuagint, the Dead Sea Scrolls and other manuscripts in the Old Testament and New Testament as well. All in all, I like the format of this Bible, very convenient and interesting. Thanks to BookSneeze® and Zondervan for sending me a free review copy of this book!(My review did not have to be favorable)

I may or may not have stayed up until midnight on the review-release date JUST so I could be 10,000% sure I got a copy to review. I wasn't really sure what to expect, honestly. I've never seen a Chronological Bible before, though I am a total geek about the timeline of Biblical events. Got the Book. I AM FANGIRLING OVER THIS BIBLE LIKE A 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL OVER JUSTIN BIEBER. OK so firstly. This Bible has a timeline running along the bottom of each page through the entire book. Coolest. thing. ever. The Bible also has a chronological chart in the beginning that tells you which dynasties, periods, and kingdoms were at which point in Biblical history (insert more fangirling here). This is quite possibly the coolest Bible I've ever had (and I am a Bible-collecting enthusiast) (no. really. I am). I wouldn't recommend using it in church during sermons. Mostly because it's all out of traditional order. You'll be flipping forever to find where everyone's at. I do strongly recommend it for personal study though. (seriously, COOLEST BIBLE EVER). It's easy to use and it has a chart in the back to tell you which books and chapters are on what page (because you will get lost). And there is this awesome little arrow that runs along the timeline on the bottom of the pages to show you where you are in time at every book of the Bible (more fangirl squeals from me). The parts of the Bible that overlap are laid out in side-by-side columns on each page. There are also charts spread through the pages. The Bible is hardback so it's extremely durable. It's kinda heavy because of the whole hardback thing, but that doesn't bother me at all. The font is the standard print size for Bibles so it's completely readable. All in all this is an incredible study tool for teachers, ministers, or seminary students. Or if you are just an enthusiastic admirer of Chronology (which is super important when studying, but that's a story for another time). I give it two thumbs way up and a 5 out of 5 stars.

    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 c In my opinion, book reviews are the hardest when it comes to Bibles.

Thus, when I review a Bible, I look to what makes that Bible unique, which is its styling. In this case, I am looking to how the publisher arranged the text (chronologically) and the overall feel of the book. The publisher boasts these special features of the Bible: NIV Language Full-color Illustrations Daily Life Notes Transition Comments Time Panels and Charts Background Notes Epoch Introductions Scripture Passages Index Topical Index and Glossary In-text color maps The hardback has the basic cover leaf. When removed, the hardback cover is revealed to be an older style, reminiscent of hotel rooms, thus most likely where the Signature Series feature is found. When the book is flipped open, however, it is definitely not a traditional Bible inside. At the top of the pages, readers find the page numbers, Epoch status, passage range, and date range. There are articles underneath about historical items, such as how bread was made during the time of the Judges. Scripture is in two-column fashion with a readable text line and footnotes for reference. Images to illustrate the text and bring it to life are artfully placed and appropriate. Maps and other articles of note are placed strategically as well. So, pretty much the features listed, but more artistic than initial thought. This Bible is one that I could use, but not for personal reading enjoyment. Instead, I see this Bible as the type of Bible I would give as a gift to a pastor or to my grandparents. It carries the regal feeling of respect and wisdom to be passed down from generation to generation. Over all, this is one of the more luxurious Bibles I have come across, and am glad to add it to my collection for reference and family study time. Priced at nearly $50, I am sticker-shocked, but for the quality of the Bible, it seems to be a reasonable asking price as well.

    "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 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 unless you are paying close attention. This Bible presents some events as the same event which are, in my opinion, different events, but they did a much better job with this than I expected. (People have a tendency to assume similar sermons must actually be the same sermon, but traveling speakers frequently use similar stories and sermons since they have a "fresh" audience who hasn't heard them before. And it's not surprising that some similar events happened.) Since it is a chronological Bible, this Bible isn't useful for "everyone turn to Luke chapter..." circumstances, but it is great for straight-through daily reading. If you need to look up the location of a specific verse, you can use an index in the back. For those who care: In the New Testament, John is used as the "backbone" that events in the other gospels are aligned with. As in, it's the gospel that has the most verses in the order we're used to. Mark is the second "most in order" book. The timeline that gave dates for various events was sometimes fairly vague, and no dates were given for events before Abraham. I appreciated that the author acknowledged that there is debate about various dates as most Bibles (and ancient history textbooks) will give you a date like it's undisputed fact. (Ancients didn't date things the same way we do, which opens things up to debate.) This Bible used more conservative dates and mainly compared its dates with liberal ones. Overall, I'd recommend this book to those who want a daily reading Bible that makes it easy to compare similar passages and align events chronologically.

    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, because frankly, the Bible is without a doubt the most difficult book I have ever attempted to read. The way that I've been shown in how to read a Bible is to read a passage, and then read verses before and after it to really get a feel for what the author(s) meant by it. At one point in this study Bible, on page 410, there are two columns: 2 Samuel 8: 15-18 in the upper left hand corner, 1 Chronicles 18:14-17 directly next to it. Right under the 2 Samuel 8:15-18 is 2 Samuel 22:1-12 and right next to that is Psalm 18. and at the very bottom of each page of this study Bible is a small timeline, with an arrow, showing where exactly in history this was happening in. If you look in the index for the the verses directly after 2 Samuel 8: 15-18, it is found 23 pages later. The ones directly before it are found a mere 3 pages before. The verses from 1 Chronicles isn't much better. For a new student like me, this Bible is not very helpful. However, I did check out another type of study Bible from the library as a comparison, the New Interpreter's Study Bible NSRV, and read Ruth side by side with the NIV Integrated. The language is easier to read than the NSRV, but the New Interpreter's Study Bible had better explanations.

    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 regard, gives a suggestion for debate on the authorship of Chronicles. Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy are all side-by-side when covering the same topic, so it's easy to see the differences for comparison. There is no pre-article on the books or authors, however. Overall, I would have liked to see commentary provided with more detailed information with the side-by-side scripture, but this book is designed to be more of a "read" than a study. In this regard, I believe it accomplished the goal it sought out to meet. I even appreciate the throwback design on the cover. Very simplistic and appreciative.

    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 the Bible because it does indeed make studying a lot easier (as far as wanting Scripture on the same or similar topic). I will say, have patience to actually look for things especially if you don't know the exact chronological order of the Old Testament (like myself, lol). Initially I asked myself what an Integrated Bible would be like and I can now say that its quite awesome. I use it for all of my studying. Believe it or not, I actually use it more than my Life Applications Study Bible.
