    I have read through the entire Bible, but without a chronological Bible I have at home, it would not have come as easily, though the historical context amazed me. I still wish for a richer reading experience all along the way, which is where the Bible mentioned in this post would come in. Having a variety of Bibles helps me to continue to grow in faith.

      I did a chronological read-through a few years back and enjoyed it also, Hannah! Agree that having a variety of Bibles helps one grow in the faith. Thanks for sharing – best of luck in the giveaway! 🙂

    I read through the entire Bible in college, but I plan to start again with a plan I found online. This sounds like a great Bible!

  3. Jenn says:

    Yes, I have read through a few times, I have been doing it every couple of years. It definitely gives you the whole picture of seeing Jesus through the whole Bible.

      Excited to hear that you’ve read through the Bible a few times Jenn!
      I find it helpful to have a focus as I go through and looking for Jesus throughout the Bible is such a great goal!

    I haven’t read the entire Bible yet. This sounds like a great Bible.

  5. Marie says:

    Yes, many times! I especially love single column Bibles with note areas. My favorites are the ESV Single Column Journaling Bible and the NLV Journaling Bible.

    I started putting purple J’s beside the times I recognized Him in my last read-through. I also, circle the ‘I am’ moments.

      Marie, those are such great tips you shared – I will have to keep that in mind!
      I’m also a fan of single column Bibles – the ones you mentioned are great!
      Have a lovely week and best of luck in the giveaway! 🙂
