Reading God's Story takes that clear narrative approach to the Bible, arranging the complete text into a fresh chronological reading plan developed for the Read the Bible for Life biblical literacy initiative. In this plan the books, chapters, and verses of the Bible are thoughtfully arranged so readers can track the story of Scripture, day by day, from beginning to end, understanding the flow of events and how all the different parts fit together to make sense.
Reading God's Story features two-color interior page layout and is organized into 52 weeks of readings (six readings per week). It presents Scripture in three main acts (God's Plan for All People; God's Covenant People; God's New Covenant People) and seventeen total scenes, providing an introduction for each act and scene to orient the reader to its importance in the grand story. Unlike other chronological Bibles, this arrangement is not date specific (e.g. "January 1"), so a person can begin using this edition at any point in the calendar year.

This chronological devotional Bible is by far the best one I have read thus far! I especially have enjoyed the way the author sets up each part of Scripture with Act and Scene and Player information. It greatly helps to see the overall picture of God's plan and amazing love story written to connect us to Him.
I've read the Bible thru before but this seems to make it more alive! Of course the geneology still throws me
I just started to find my way back into church when this was suggested to me to read. I love the fact that the author has split the books of the bible up and has placed them in chronilogical order.its also very easy to read. And the author has split it up into days so you can read a little bit at a time and within a year you will have read the whole bible. I would deffinetley reccommend this bible even if you already own a bible.
I really like the way this is written so you can read the Bible in a year.
The BEST chronological bible i've seen!
