Highly portable Bible companion Apr 12, 2005
This booklet is a great resource for any serious reader of the Bible. I take it with me whenever I take my Bible with me. I couldn't fault any of the choices Mr Kohlenberger has made regarding where to place readings in the chronology.
The author (p9) uses and recommends the New International Version of the Scriptures. A fine choice. My favorite too. If, however, you wish to attempt to read the King James Version through, another booklet you may find handy is "The King James Bible Companion: Over 500 archaic words defined" 1999: David W. Daniels, Chick Publications. This could be used simultaneously with the booklet under discussion as it is not a reading plan and is also very slim for travel purposes.
Two pleas to the potential user:
(1) The readings list itself being only a few pages (aside from the commentaries and other material): Please avoid the temptation to photocopy for yourself or others. Mr Kohlenberger deserves every cent he can make from the sales of this excellent resource. I purchased several for my young people's group at Church, and have had very positive feedback.
(2) Avoid denigrating the order in which God's Word has come down to us. Whilst following the guide is an excellent way to learn the Scriptures, avoid comments, particularly in sermons, like: "Whoever put the Bible together must have been very disorganised." Not exactly an edifying approach!
Excellent for understanding the Bible. Apr 29, 1999
Mr. Kohlenberger has done a magnificent job in arranging the Bible into a chronology. This is invaluable in understanding OT prophecy, for one must truly understand the "happenings" contemporary with the prophet before he can even begin to grasp what is being said. I prayed for a work that put the Bible (particularly the OT) in "parallel", that is, arranged with the prophets in the history books where they make sense, and I believe I was led to this small but invaluable book. Thanks Mr. Kohlenberger
