The Chronological Study Bible
The Chronological Study Bible in the New King James Version (NKJV) rearranges the Scriptures into order in which the events actually happened. There are many articles, historical notes and timelines, graphics and maps. You get a feel of what was happening throughout history. The chronological arrangement helps clarify how the Old Testament books fit together, e.g., Kings and Chronicles, and the Prophets (some of whom lived during the same time periods). In the New Testament, it has the four Gospels woven together into one account. And the epistles appear within the book of Acts, according to when they were written. The extra material (articles, charts, etc.) are set apart by a different color (a light tan), and the actual Scripture text appears in basic black on white background. This helps to keep the pages visually organized. (This is a better layout than the older version of this work, titled The Life and Times Historical Reference Bible, which had everything the same color on the page.) New in this version are a concordance and a reading plan (for one year or two years). In The Chronological Study Bible the outside top margin of each page shows the historic year reference, and the scripture reference appears on the inside top margin. This makes better sense, because you would not find a portion of Scripture in the usual place. So, you would use the historic year reference to guide you through the book. This is more like a history book, with the Scriptures as the text.
