In our house, we have a lot of Bibles. And, over the years, I’ve gotten many Bibles to review (many of which I have then gifted to others or donated to my church). Yet, no matter how many Bibles I have on my shelf, I still get excited when I see a new one in a store or hear about it somewhere. That was the case when I was recently introduced to the Day-by-Day Chronological Bible by Holman Bibles and B&H Publishing.
I received this beautiful leather-bound Bible last week and I’ m excited to tell you about it …
The Day-by-Day Chronological Bible
Many people are unfamiliar with the stories of the Bible and how they fit together into the grand narrative of God’s Word. God gave us the Bible to reveal great truth about himself and about our lives, and he wants to draw us into the ongoing story of what he is doing in the world. The CSB Day-by-Day Chronological Bible features a clear narrative approach to the Bible, arranging the complete text into a fresh chronological reading plan with daily readings guided by Dr. George Guthrie.
In this plan, the books, chapters, and verses of the Bible are thoughtfully arranged so readers can track the story of Scripture, day-by-day, from beginning to end, understanding the flow of events and how the grand narrative of Scripture applies to everyday life. Unlike other chronological Bibles, this arrangement is not date specific (e.g. “January 1”), so the reading plan can begin at any point in the calendar year.
- 52 weeks of readings (six readings per week) in chronological order
- Scripture presented in three main acts (God’s Plan for All People; God’s Covenant People; God’s New Covenant People) and seventeen total
- An introduction for each act and scene to orient the reader to its importance in the grand story
- Single-column text with plenty of space for taking notes
- Smyth-sewn binding
- Presentation page
- Full-color maps
The CSB Day-by-Day Chronological Bible features the highly readable, highly reliable text of the Christian Standard Bible® (CSB). The CSB stays as literal as possible to the Bible’s original meaning without sacrificing clarity, making it easier to engage with Scripture’s life-transforming message and to share it with others.
Heidi Says …
I remember my parents having a chronological Bible years ago, but it’s something I’ve never had before. It wasn’t until I was an adult and started homeschooling my kids that I actually put thought into the fact that the Bible accounts are out of order. We started using The Mystery of History, and I was so intrigued to see how the events in the Bible tied in with what was going on in other parts of the world during the same time.
At that time, I started thinking that a chronological Bible would be a good resource for our homeschool shelves, but I never found one that I liked.
Last week, when this Bible arrived, I was so excited to open it. Then, when I saw the beautiful leather binding, I got even more excited. I love all Bibles, but ones with nice covers are especially appealing to me (I know, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but it sure does help!)
I am very excited about this Bible and can’t wait to dive into it. I love the brown cover. The pages are a nice thickness so I think I will be able to mark in it without worrying too much about bleeding through like some Bibles. And I appreciate the daily readings that accompany each Scripture passage.
They are short but just enough to get you thinking and to apply that day’s reading to your life
Check out the Bible for yourself and see what you think.
