We have a new title in our store this week! The NIV Chronological Study Bible is a great tool for gaining a historic understanding of God’s Word.


If you have used an Olive Tree study Bible before, you know that study Bibles come with two texts: the notes and the Bible text. But a chronological study Bible is the exception to this rule. Why? Because the main reason to own a chronological Bible is so that you can read through the Bible in chronological order!

So, when you open this resource in the app, you’ll see the Bible text and still be able to use the verse chooser. The only difference is that, this time, you’ll navigate through different “epochs” or eras of time to read sections of corresponding Scripture.


Study Bibles contain tidbits of great information sprinkled throughout the Bible text. They give you insights you might not have known otherwise. The NIV Chronological Study Bible uses its notes to teach you about the history and culture of the Bible.

Inside you’ll find:

  • The entire NIV text with the translator’s notes, arranged in chronological order
  • Full-color illustrations of places and artifacts that place you inside the era you’re reading about
  • Fascinating articles that connect the Bible to world history and culture
  • Daily Life Notes that explain how people lived in Bible times
  • Time Panels and Charts show the flow of Bible history
  • In-text maps of the Biblical world


Here’s a few reasons why using this resource in the app is way more helpful to your study time:

  1. You can tap on images and enlarge them
  2. Tap on verses referenced notes to open them (in context!) in a pop-up window
  3. Reading a different Bible? The resource guide will let you know if the NIV Chronological Study Bible has any information on what you’re reading
  4. You can make unlimited notes and highlights that sync between your devices

  1. The description does not say whether the Bible is divided into 365 parts for a daily annual reading program.

      Sorry, Clark! This Bible isn’t divided into a reading plan, the way our other reading plans and devotionals are. However, this product does have some end-matter that describes possible daily reading plans you could implement into your study!

      • I’m new to Chronological Bible’s, this answer confused me. Is this actually in chronological order or do you read a passage then have to hit the link to continue the order? I’m looking for one that’s chronological all the way through. Sorry this is confusing, I’m entering the winter of my life

        • Cierra Loux Reply

          It is in chronological order all the way through. 🙂

      Sorry, Paul! At this time, we don’t have a French version.

    There was an NIV that was listed as chronological. It would take passages that had equivelants and meld them as one (like Samuel-Kings/Chronicles and the gospels. Does this order them like that, or in ‘standard’ fashion.

      Hm, I’m not sure if I understand your question entirely. But what I can tell you is that this Bible put every passage of Scripture into an era. In the front-matter, you are able to tap on a hyperlinked set of dates (such as, A.D. 30 to 31) and see all the Scripture that is dated for that time.
