Daily Chronological Bible in NKJV Edition by B&H Publishing Group

B&H Publishing Group has provided us with some outstanding Bibles. If you are searching for a Bible you are to surely find the perfect Bible for you. I have been reading through the Daily Chronological Bible in the NKJV version. 

This is a really cool Bible. I was excited to receive it. I had always heard people speak about how they loved a chronological Bible. Well, now I understand why. 

This Bible is divided into three parts or acts. 
  • God's Plan For All People.
  • God's Covenant People.
  • God's New Covenant People
These three acts are divided into scenes, seventeen in all.
  • The first act is divided into three scenes.
  • The second act is divided into nine scenes.
  • The third act is divided into five scenes


For instance when you open the Bible to Act 1 you find three scenes. 
  • Creation.
  • The Fall.
  • The Flood
Act 2 begins with:
  •  Scene 1: The People: God Calls a Covenant People
  • Scene 2: Deliverance
  • Scene 3:The Sinai Covenant and Law
  • Scene 4: The Land: God's Place for His People.
  • Scene 5: Kings and Prophets


In each act we are given the Setting, Main Characters, and the Plot Summary. This Bible follows a 52 week reading program with 6 readings a week. There are color maps that are a great tool and an Index of Scripture Passages

I enjoy this Bible for many reasons. The first is that as I wake with coffee I can grab this Bible and begin with today's reading. If I were to begin at the beginning in Genesis I would find Act 1, Scene 1 Creation: The God of All of Life. Week 1/Day 1 readings begin with Genesis 1-2. Day 2 travels to John 1:1-3, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (vs.1-2). Now it moves to Psalm 8, Psalm 104, and on day 3 we pick back up with Genesis 3-5. 

On week 44/Day 1 we are on Act 3 Scene 3: Christ's Deliverance of His People. These are the readings for this day.
  1. Matthew 26:6-13
  2. Mark 14:3-9
  3. John 11:55-12:11
  4. Matthew 21:1-22
  5. Mark 11:1-26
  6. Luke 19:28-48
  7. John 12:12-36
  8. John 2:13-25
and now we are at Day 2.

See, in Week 41/Day 4 we begin with Matthew 5-7, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." (vs.5:3). We then read Luke's account in 6:20-49. And we pick back up at Matthew chapter 8 in the next day's reading. 

It is my hope that I am not making this confusing, because it is so simple. This is why I love this Bible. You know how you pick up your Bible and read the account of Christ's birth in Matthew and then wonder what it says in the other Books? This Bible brings all of those scriptures together in one day's reading. It gives the reader a greater understanding and brings the Bible together in a way that makes it clear. 

Now when we reach Act 3 we have God's New Covenant People. It begins with Scene 1:
  • Christ's Coming.
  • Christ's Deliverance of His People.
  • Christ's Church.
  • Christ's Second Coming and Reign.
I find this Bible to be very helpful in placing everything in order. Scripture that matches scripture that gives me a precise understanding. This is a great Bible to read from alone or in coordination with a Study Bible. I believe in having every tool I can access to help me grow in my walk with the Lord. 

I have the hardcover version. It too comes in a paperback selection. Please head over to the site and check out this Bible. I think it's one you will really enjoy reading from on a daily basis. The readings are not long. You could easily enjoy your reading with coffee and even a friend. Then you have the entire day to ponder the reading. That's the whole idea, right? To ponder the Word! 

I'd love to hear your thoughts if you decide to purchase this Bible! Enjoy:)

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

The" I Am" Makes Us Think About What "i am"

In Genesis 1:26-27 it shares something valuable to each of us about who we are in God. We are created in His image. What I love about this verse below is that is says, "make man in OUR image". What's OUR? The trinity, God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. Ponder that. I mean really go deep. We are make in THEIR image. 
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them."
We are His workmanship. He knew us before we were ever born. He weaved us together within the womb, but even before then He planned our life perfectly for us. That's so much to ponder isn't it? 
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…

Of Stillness and Storm by Michele Phoenix

This is my first novel read by Michele Phoenix. I love the premise of this novel and all that she opened my eyes to. We always hear of the 'calling' by missionaries. We want to go where God calls us. We want to make a difference. 
To be called by God isn't the same for every soul. We all fit differently into His plan. Our walk with Him isn't ALL we do for His name, but our relationship with Him, our intimate journey with our Savior. 
This novel is raw and transparent. For me, it was the journey of Lauren. We see that her husband feels called to work in Nepal and with the people, but we really don't read about much of his personal journey. 
Their son, Ryan, is struggling. We can see through the conversations he has with his parents that he is truly unhappy. We see the fall, but we don't really get a close glimpse into his heart. 
It is with Lauren that we journey. She feels alone and lost. Through her words we can 'feel' the pain in her heart. She is br…
