24/7 NLT Bible Sep 1, 2009
I've read a chronologically-based Bible before (Daily Bible, edited by F. Lagarde Smith, pub. by Harvest House) so I had that as my standard to base this newer book against. I much prefer the Daily Bible to the 24/7 version. The 24/7 version has no added commentary, which I miss; the pages are very thin and easily stick together; and while it is chronological, it repeats sections that are duplicated (such as Kings/Chronicles) instead of keeping the flow of the story.
Read through the Bible in a year. Affordable, compact, and chronological. Feb 8, 2009
If you're like many of my friends, you probably made a new year's resolution to read through the Bible in a year. While I hope the majority of you have made good on your resolution thus far, inevitably some of you are struggling or may have stopped doing it all together. When it comes to disciplines like reading our Bible each day and prayer, our minds are only too ready to help us come up with many excuses why we didn't get to it yesterday, won't be able to do it today, and what it is that will probably prevent us from getting to it tomorrow. For many of us, reading through the Bible in a year is a bit of a struggle and we need all the help we can find to allow us to stay organized and on track. If any of this sounds familiar, you are a perfect candidate for 24/7: A One Year chronological Bible.
This new Bible from Tyndale is designed to help you read through the entire Bible in a year. The text of the New Living Translation is divided into 365 daily readings. Each of these readings should take you approximately 15 minutes to complete. While there are a number of one year Bibles produced by Tyndale House Publishers, there is something that makes the organization of this Bible unique. Rather than being organized like a traditional Bible with the books in canonical order, the events of the Bible are arranged chronologically by the order in which they are believed to have taken place historically. Be sure to take the time to read through the introductory material for an explanation of the chronological organization of the Biblical text. Also take note of the general timeline and the explanation for the historic Christian symbols found throughout this book. Tyndale commissioned woodcuts of 12 historic Christian symbols, one for each month of the year. Each symbol graces the pages of the readings for its associated month.
This is a fairly compact Bible, measuring approximately 5" by 6 ½". I felt this made it comfortable to hold when reading. Also it is small enough to either stow away in a laptop bag or keep on the nightstand beside your bed. Depending on your preference, this book is available with either a paperback or hardcover binding.
If you're looking for a way to be more deliberate about reading through the Bible in a year, this affordable and compact, chronologically organized Bible may be just what you've been looking for to help you stay on track and see that new year's resolution through to completion.
Good Resource for 2nd Time Reading the Bible or Later Feb 5, 2009
This is an excellent resource for getting an extra perspective on the Bible. Rapid reading, reading for overview, is an important part of Bible study, as is the spiritual discipline of daily Bible study.
The chronological arrangement provided for this edition has its limitations. There are many disagreements on the dating of particular books of the Bible. In addition, there is some value in the canonical arrangement. Nonetheless, provided one has started at some other point, this will provide an excellent opportunity for a new perspective.
Key positive points:
1. The NLT text. The NLT is an exceptional Bible translation for this purpose. 2. Daily arrangement and transitional notes. 3. Inline reading plan.
1. Binding that might not last the year. 2. Text that might be a bit small for one.
On the other hand, if the book were bigger or had heavier paper it would be much harder to carry and to use, so perhaps the compromise was OK.
Great Implementation Of A Chronological Bible Feb 5, 2009
I love the idea of arranging the Bible in chronological order, and 24/7 does a great job of doing that in a format suitable for daily reading. Any implementation establishing a chronological order is sure to cause arguments. The Bible includes a four page general timeline, so it's pretty easy to see the choices the editors made for ordering the text. Each day's reading covers a chunk that can be read in about 10 or 15 minutes.
My complaint is that the plan is constructed around the calendar. I.e., there is a reading for January 1, January 2, etc. until December 31. I would much rather see a reading plan like this labeled as Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, ... Day 365 instead of forcing it to sync with the calendar. If you miss a day, there's no artificial pressure to catch up. All in all, though, that's a minor complaint.
What do I like about this Bible? I really like how it seems to want to be read. Not studied like a textbook, but read like a story. Its lack of a lot of reference material will ensure that you focus on the text itself and not start chasing (and putting undue emphasis on) study notes. Each daily reading is appropriately sized for both length and content.
I recommend this Bible to anyone who is interested in using a structured reading plan to read the Bible. I think going through it in the chronological manner presented here would be a pretty cool way to do it, and probably more engaging than a lot of other plans. It's priced low enough to make it an affordable addition to your own library (it's a good 2nd Bible, not a primary Bible) or as a gift.
