Daily devotional readings from the Old Testament, Psalms, New Testament. Read the Bible in one year. NIV
  StPLCLibrary | Jan 18, 2015 |
I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone looking to read the entire Bible. Until I participated on a year long bible study, reading the NIV Bible according to the schedule laid out by F. LaGard Smith, I really didn't understand the overall chronology of The Old Testament and how the various history, law, wisdom, and major and minor prophet books in it fit together and related to one another. Smith's harmony of the gospels is also very enlightening, as is his use of the book of Acts as a guide to Paul's letters. Smith's commentaries along the way aren't exstensive enough for in depth study of any particular book, but they are helpful in understanding the order in which he guides you through the entire Bible.

Reading the Bible in chronological order really does help in better understanding it. ( )

The title here is a bit of a misnomer, this Bible is not authored by F. LaGard Smith. The translation is the very readable New International Version, but instead of the usual canonical arrangement of books, Smith has arranged the books and passages in Chronological/Historical Order. He also wrote introductions and commentaries based on the historical events portrayed in the passages.

Some of my hard core theologian friends poo-poo this Bible, but I enjoy it. ( )

I'm only up to July, but I'm not enjoying the writing.
