Approximately 11 years ago, a pastor of the church I attended waved a brochure in the air from behind the pulpit and said, “As a congregation, we should all read through the Bible this coming year using this brochure.” I already had my own reading program for Scripture but I looked and his brochure and quickly decided, Nope, I’m not doing that.
The following year he tried again, this time with a popular blue and yellow daily Bible, still on the market today. I reviewed this Bible and concluded that, Yes, I would read this Bible through in a year.
The following year, I determined that if I was going to read the Bible through again in a year, I wanted a chronological Bible. That year, about 9 years ago, I began reading:
The Daily Bible In Chronological Order, 365 Daily Readings, New International Version, with Devotional Insights and Commentary by F. LaBarge Smith
And I never turned back!
This page is dedicated to comments on the daily reading of The Daily Bible. What a chronological Bible does is rearrange Scripture into a historical, chronological sequence. The resulting text reads like a novel and is very dynamic.
Reading the Bible through in a year allows us to see the BIG PICTURE, the scope of God’s working throughout time.
