Index does not reference bible

No where in this audible tells you which book and chapter of the Bible is being read. Therefore, it is difficult to figure out which chapter in the Bible is being read.

Being a chronological bible, it's possible that chapters from various books in the Bible may have the same story.

Wonderful Way to Read the Bible in a Year

The NLT is a faithful translation that reads very easily, so is a great translation to listen to in chronological order. It was fascinating to have the psalms placed within the stories when they were written, the epistles within the stories of Acts, etc.

There is something powerful about listening to the entire story of the Bible from beginning to end in modern English. For example, after slogging through hours and hours of depressing stories of Israel turning away from God in the Old Testament, the story of Jesus' incarnation truly felt like light bursting into darkness. You can really feel how it was a rescue mission to a world that didn't deserve it, and the power of God's love and commitment to His creation hit me more powerfully than if I had started in at the Gospel accounts.

I prefer other translations and formats for in-depth Bible study, but having a slightly different translation than what I've always read jarred my attention just enough to keep me from skimming over familiar verses. The struggle with listening is that it's easy to get distracted, so I still think actual study is important. But listening is a great way to add the Bible into the moments of my day when I can't hold a book. Having the Word poured into my mind while I'm getting ready in the morning or driving or chopping vegetables for dinner is a great way to keep me focused on truth, even if I don't catch every word.

With an audio format, reading the Bible through every year is very doable, even for very busy lives. We all have moments when our hands are occupied but our minds aren't--what better way to fill those moments than with the Word of God? Now that I've finished, I plan to start all over again.

Not a true One Year Bible

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This audio version does not break the Bible out by day of year which is the purpose I bought it in the first place. It also doesn't tell you what book you are reading from, everything is listed as Chapter #. I would return it if I could.

Any additional comments?

Save your money and buy the hard copy

Not what was expected

What three words best describe Todd Busteed’s performance?

Easy to listen to

Any additional comments?

Was expecting the whole chronological bible, but was only part of it.

  • Overall

Best book ever written!

Good narration, in a paraphrased version that is easy to understand. The chronology made it difficult to know which book, chapter and verse was being read, but I got used to it. It was especially helpful in following the historical context of events, kings and prophets in the old testament.

great way to listen to God's word

listening to the Bible in chronological order is very refreshing. I think it actually aids in remembering many of the events, particularly in the Old Testament. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Worth listening to!

Excellent Resource

The New Living Translation is a wonderful translation for easy, relaxed reading. Even better is the fact that it is now available in chronological order for those who find such things wonderfully beneficial. And this audio edition is performed with excellence. It is highly recommended for any newcomer to the faith as well as the seasoned, studious saint. Everyone on either end of the spectrum (and anywhere in between) will benefit greatly from this resource.

Great Way to Listen to the Bible

Where does The One Year Chronological Bible NLT rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is great, but not the best.

Any additional comments?

As I have been using The Daily Bible in Chronological Order for a Bible Study I was hoping to get an additional resource to help my study that I could listen to while driving or at the office. I appreciate the Chapter references, which are the days- But I just wished that it told me the actual scripture reference as well while it is narrating.

great performance, great book

love hearing the bible in order. Very interesting. I wouldn't use this version for study, but it is great to get a different perspective of the bible. Can't recommend enough.
