The Chronological Guide to the Bible review

Reading the Bible chronologically can be crazy,  you’ll skipping through a book and then going back and forth between I Kings and II Chronicles.  It’s insane, but it’s great for learning ancient and church history.
However, it can be dry, very dry, and I’ve been tempted to skim my way through the Bible many times, especially with the two books mentioned above!

That’s why I’m totally in love with this awesome resource!
This book truly helps to bring what can otherwise be extremely dull, interesting! And it can be used with a bible you already have!
Thomas Nelson is one of the publishers who have always set a standard for Bible guides and resources, but i think this is one of the best I’ve seen. 
It  appeals to my visual learning with maps, charts and outlines a plenty. The Bible is divided into 9 “Epochs”. 6 to divide  the Old Testament and 3 to divide the New Testament.  Because they use this format, and since it’s been around for a long time, it helps the reader to get to know their way through the Bible.
It has a very simple format, and the references of what to read are within the text of the book, with a commentary to correspond with each passage.
There’s a lot of information packed into this 200+ page book, but it’s still a concise resource that I’ll be keeping on hand for some time to come.

Thanks to Booksneeze for providing this book for me to review!
