The One Year Chronological Bible not only meets this need but also

What is the canonical order?
The canonical order is the order in which the books of the Bible are
normally arranged. This order groups books of similar content together. The
books of the Bible are arranged canonically in the following order: Law
(Genesis-Deuteronomy), History (Joshua-Esther), Wisdom Literature (Job-Song
of Songs), Prophets (Isaiah-Malachi), Gospels (Matthew-John), early church
history (Acts), Pauline Epistles (Romans-Philemon), General Epistles
(Hebrews-Jude), and Apocalyptic Literature (Revelation). The canonical order
was developed by Jerome, who translated the Bible into Latin in the late
fourth century ad.
Although Jerome’s order is logical, it does not clearly represent the
order in which the events of the Bible unfolded. For instance, why are the
books that record the Israelites’ return from captivity (Ezra and Nehemiah)
arranged before the prophetic books that predict their exile (Jeremiah and
Ezekiel)? Or how do the four accounts of Christ’s life fit together? To give
you a more historical perspective, the Scriptures in The One Year
Chronological Bible have been arranged in chronological order.
What is chronological order?
Chronological order is the order in which the events occurred in time. In
The One Year Chronological Bible, all Scripture is arranged according
to the time sequence of the events. The return of the Israelites from
captivity, therefore, comes after the earlier prophets and Daniel, rather
than before them. In addition, all four accounts of Christ’s life are woven
together, giving a clear picture of Christ’s time on earth from birth to his
ascension into heaven.
Furthermore, The One Year Chronological Bible divides the entire
New Living Translation into 365 daily readings. This easy-to-use
reading plan helps you get through the entire Bible in one year.
Other One Year Bible products are available in canonical order, in
which a portion of the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs
make up each daily reading. These One Year Bible products come in the
New Living Translation, King James Version, and New International Version.
