A Chronological Tour Through the Bible based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
If you, like me, have tried to read the books of the Bible in a chronological order, you have probably had to flick about and research a lot! The power of reading the chapters in time sequence goes without question. It gives context to the happenings and integrates what happens, psalms have more meaning, how Jonah fits into the bigger historical story and so on. In addition to this unbelievably helpful part of A chronological tour through the Bible, Ron Rhodes highlights five aspects each day coinciding with the interlinking verses. He shares the key concept, the big picture, a transformational truth, a verse for meditation and a question to ponder. The Bible readings plus this takes on average 5 minutes so it’s perfect for a once-a-day check in which will get you through the entire Bible in 365. Given it’s length (it’s a year’s journey to do it properly), I read sections of it and intend to read it fully as the year continues. The overarching descriptions about each era are insightful and the timelines are particularly helpful. In the postscript, each book of the Bible is summarised in a sentence. I thoroughly enjoyed the 25% I’ve completed and highly recommend it as a way to read the Bible start to finish as well as a resource book. It’s a five out of five on the en-JOY-ment scale.
A Chronological Tour Through the Bible was very well organized, easy to read with clear and concise information. This book is meant to be studied with your favorite Bible as a daily devotion with prayer and reflection. Chronological categories are divided into nine Eras of time from Era 1 Undated time - 1800 BC to Era 9 The Early Church 30 - 95 AD. The author gives descriptions, interpretation, applications, scripture readings, chronology based on history and archeological data. Each days chapter includes key concept, the big picture, transformational truth, a verse for meditation, and a question to ponder. Loved that the author prayed for each reader, suggested praying before each Bilble study and the postscript that lists key truths for every book of the Bible. I thought this book is an excellent guide for growth in a Christian‘s spiritual life. I think it would be perfect for personal use or even as a group study with a weekly discussion. My thanks to the author, the publisher and netgalley for making this book available to me to read and review.
