Chronological Bibles

If you grew up going to Sunday School, it’s very likely you learned to say the books of the Bible, but how about reading them in chronological order according to traditional authorship? Job, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Psalms . . . ? What happened to Joshua and Judges? Instead of putting the books in this order, most Bibles present the books by types of literature—like historical, prophetic, the “wisdom” books. Genesis through Esther are of the historical genre, while Isaiah and Jeremiah are prophetic books. It’s good to note, however, within each section of writings in the Christian Bible, most books are put in a basically chronological order.
