 My Thoughts:

Wow, what a wonderful study bible. 
I had never seen a bible arranged chronological so for me this was a fascinating find. 
The cover is both soft, pliable and beautiful. 
It's written in easy to understand language. 
I opened the bible and began reading through the New Testament.  I was amazed at the amount of information it contained. It is listed as Epoch Eight which is The Coming of the Messiah.  It lists the dates as being 37 B.C.-A.D. 30, gives the archeology of the past, peoples and groups, the biblical literature and introductions to Jesus Christ.  As it begins there is section listed as Transition which gives a prehistory of Jesus, also included is a time capsule which bears witness to a time frame.  Also given are time charts and panels which give the reader a visual as to exactly what was taking place.  Beautiful in-text maps which shows Jesus' travels.  For me each of these inclusions helped to put everything I was reading in better perspective.  At the end of the book/bible there's a section that includes cultural and historical topics which answered questions and brought topics to light I had never considered.  Of course there's a glossary and concordance, plus index of scripture passages.  At the very back included is either a one or two year daily reading plan,  
For me this is a wonderful addition to my Bible study program.  It will enhance my understanding of events and God's message.  It would be difficult to use this in church, but in my opinion could be used if necessary.  I find myself picking this Bible up after church to for a further understanding of the message.  
This is a Bible I would recommend to everyone. It will help in understanding exactly how everything unfolded in not only the prophesy but also the coming of Jesus, his ministry, his death and resurrection.
