Actually, Jack I have two of them. One is "The Reese Chronological Bible," and the one I am looking at right now is "The Daily Bible In Chronological Order."

I will quote a description for you from "The Daily Bible”:

"In the Daily Bible, you will read the scriptures in chronological order just as the events happened in history. Instead of reading portions of the Old Testament and New Testament at random, in the Daily Bible you will see the events unfold before you like an epic novel. Along the way, you will be led from one passage to another by informative, interesting narrative which sets the scene for what you are about to read.

“If you have never read the Bible from cover to cover, this is one Bible that will help you to do that. It leads you gently into ‘the whole council of God.’ You will sometimes by pleasantly surprised, always edified, and greatly challenged.

“Unique, Topical, Presentations:
As you read, for the first time, you will have all of the Laws of Moses gathered together in a single, unified presentation by subject matter. You will gain a new appreciation for the history of Israel when you see the ceremonial laws, the dietary and health laws, and the various civil and criminal laws in one place. Psalms are grouped together by themes."

The books of Ecclesiastes and Proverbs are arranged in topical order.

"The prophets are fit into the history of the people of Israel. Their sermons decrying materialism, injustice, and religious hypocrisy ring out to a dying nation. For the first time, a totally integrated account of the life of Christ in chronological order. Paul's various epistles bristle with new meaning when you read them in the context of the Book of Acts."

"The Daily Bible is neither a translation nor a paraphrase. The context is composed entirely of Scripture, using the widely-acclaimed New International Version."

I believe my other chronological Bible, The Reese, is King James version. 

I hope this gives you a sense of what this type of Bible is like.

What is The Chronological Bible? I have borrowed it from my library and like it for at least 2 reasons. First, in the Old Testament book of 1 Samuel, for example, First Samuel 19:1-17 aabout the time David escaped the soldiers Saul sent to kill him, you immediately read in Psalm 59 how David poured out his heart to God in response to this situation. 

And the second reason I like it is that in the New Testament gospel accounts the Chronological Bible functions like a harmony of the gospels. I loved The Harmony of the Gospels which we were REQUIRED to use at Dallas Theological Seminary in Dr. Dwight Pentecost’s class on “The Life of Christ.” (A Harmony of the Gospels by A.T. Robertson, HARPERCOLLINS / 1932 / HARDCOVER --5 out of 5 stars for A Harmony of the Gospels.) 

For instance, when you are reading one of the Gospel writer’s accounts of something Jesus said or did, maybe the Last Supper in Mark 14:12-16, you can see right away what the other Gospel writers wrote about this subject (Matthew 26:17-19 and Luke 22:7-13)! On the first Sunday of every month for the 7 years that I was a pastor, I led Communion with my small church and often used these passages. Any Christian teacher or parent can use these precious helps with those under his influence.
