This version incorporates Klassen's dating system to Reese's copy of the Bible ordered, in Reese's opinion, by the chronological order of the Biblical events, with dates from both men to show where they disagree. [There is another version that includes Klassen's book, The chronology of the Bible, shrunken down and bound as part of the Bible. There is also a version that is just by Reese, no Klassen included.]
Understand that there are several chronological Bibles available. This is because the Bible often does not give the date of certain events. For instance, does Genesis 1:1 come before or after John 1:1 - both occur "In the beginning." Does Job occur before or after Abraham? Before or after the Exodus? So I use several versions to get a better feel for how things fit together. In Reese's version you read Gen 25:2-4 (& I Chron 1:32-33) (Abraham's children by Keturah, after Sarah's death), then Gen 11:11 (the death in 1817 BC of Noah's son, Shem), then Gen 25:19-26 (the birth of Isaac's boys, Esau & Jacob in 1807 BC). So you see that Abraham lived while Shem was still alive and might have heard from him about the events surrounding the flood - but you can't see if he may have been too far away to have met.
My copy is KJV - I do not know if other versions are available. ( )

I started this thinking it would be an interesting take on reading through the bible. It has been a fascination journey through the word of God. Seeing how the two kingdoms interacted by reading the side-by-side accounts and mixing in all of the prophets in their correct chronological time frame has really brought the old testament to life. Also, seeing what was going on when the different Psalms were written has given them more meaning. In much the same way, reading the parallel accounts of the gospels gives a more complete picture of those events. Having Paul's letters fit into the time frame of his missionary journeys has made them somehow more "real". Everyone should read through a chronological account at least once. ( )

I loved how this bible was organized. Every word of the bible placed in chronological order makes putting God's amazing story into historical context a very accessible thing. There seems to be many one-year chronological bibles, but the organization of their timelines seems to be a little looser. For example, a Tyndale version begins with Genesis 1:1-5:32. This version begins with John 1:1-2, Psalm 90:2, Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 14:12-18, and then picks back up at Genesis 1:2. It not only feels very researched and deliberate, but really shows a beautiful picture of what the bible is.

The story of David, switching from Samuel to Psalms as it did, was especially beautiful. Because you are reading the facts and then the song, you really get to see David's heart and what God delighted in. The historical notes included just added to the fullness of the experience. The birth of Socrates, for example, is noted. Overall, reading through this bible was a great experience and left me with a much better impression of the 'big picture'. ( )

It lost a star due to it following the gap theory and having the fall of Satan before the completion of creation where God pronounces, "IT WAS VERY GOOD" how can He make such a statement if sin and death had already entered His creation?
A chronological approach to reading through the Bible is good to see a progressive revelation of God to man, however the time line is approached in order of events, not the order of when the Scriptures were actually written. I believe that a chronological Bible should be published with the order of Scripture received but that is just my view, also for a Bible such as this I believe a suggested daily reading to read through the Bible in a year should be included as any yearly reading plan is useless when reading chronologically.
A good concept but a chronologically received time line can be found on the internet which in my view would be better as that is how man actually received the Scriptures. ( )
