Chronological Life Application Study Bible -KJV ~ Review

Tyndale Chronological Life Application Study Bible 
King James Version
Published by Tyndale House Publishers

The Chronological Life Application Study Bible presents the Bible in a chronological manner.  Rather than being broken down into the books we are all familiar with the Bible is presented in a historical timeline.  Naturally Genesis still starts everything off because as it says "In the beginning God created..."  

But there is some much more that this Bible has to offer - there is a complete Biblical timeline in which Biblical events and significant world events are shown in relation to one another.

There are also short yet concise biographical overview of key people in the Bible with scriptural references to where they are mention throughout the Bible 

There are also themes to the various sections and those delved into and major events, people, geographical settings, and Biblical books are presented at the beginning of the section.  Likewise between the two Testaments a short overview of the history and major events effecting the Hebrew people and the world is presented setting the world scene for Jesus' birth. 

I really like the Section overviews and the Chronological Header System that lets you know what time period your current Bible passage is in.  At the back of the Bible there is a Book-by-Book where the books are individually presented with an overview and the main themes/message.  There is also a Dictionary/Concordance and region maps to further bring greater understanding of the Bible.  Also I also found the Biblical Calendar very interesting comparing our modern months to Hebrew and Babylonian months.

I will admit it takes a little bit of time to get used to the Bible not being in a book format - I especially found this to be true in the Gospels rather than in the Old Testament.  But it was interesting seeing and reading the Gospels together in this format.  But the beauty and poetic appeal of the language of the KJV still comes through.  This is definitely a Bible that have an appeal to anyone wanting to study the historical aspects of the Bible.

I was provided a copy of this Bible by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.  

“A refreshing way to experience God’s story; a trusted way to apply it to your life.”
