A Great Resource
The chronological approach to scripture is not something new on the shelves. This approach has been taken by other bible manufacturers and publishers. But this format from Zondervan differs in some ways. First, there is no major commentary with this bible. Secondly, the timeline and dated pages are a great asset to help the reader understand where they are at in history. Third, there are helpful introduction sections and charts that give a bird’s eye view of what is taking place in the particular book you’re in.
This bible will be a great help to readers and those wanting to study the outline of when things took place. However, if commentary is what you’re after in a study bible, you may want to look elsewhere or pair this bible up with some solid commentary. This is a helpful bible and will do readers well to use. But don’t let the “study bible” label fool you into thinking you’re getting a running commentary.
