The Bible not being in chronological order can sometimes make studying the Bible difficult. That is why chronological Bibles can come in so handy. A chronological Bible actually puts the content of the Bible in chronological order. As an example, Isaiah ministered during the times of the kings. So, a chronological Bible puts Isaiah’s prophecies in the appropriate place in the books of 1 and 2 Kings. A chronological Bible also takes the four Gospels and attempts to put all of the events in order.
There is now a new CSB Day-by-Day Chronological Bible that makes it easy to read it that way. See how the story can make more sense to you, when you read it in order. Let me know if you’ve ever read the bible that way, or ever wanted to, in the comments below. Also, enter to win a copy of this bible using the sweepstakes form at the end of the post.

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.
Features Include: 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 scenes, 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, concordance, smyth-sewn binding, presentation page, and 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.

This looks like a fabulous way to study and understand the Bible better!
I agree, Barb. So many don’t realize that the bible isn’t in order for the time. Any other way to study and understand is a good one! 🙂
I would love to get this as a gift for my bible study leader!
I bet that they would love it! 🙂
This sounds like a great book.
It definitely is, Lari! 🙂
I’ve never thought about the chronological order and how some books overlap, etc. This Bible sounds fascinating and would greatly enhance study! I’d give it to my husband so we could share it and learn more together.
It’s amazing to actually read it in order…makes the stories make a bit more sense, etc. 🙂 Thank you for entering!!
