Goal #2 Read the KJV Chronological Bible

Winner of the ECPA 2013 Christian Book of the Year
Award for Bibles (NLT)
One of my big goals for 2014 is to read the Bible through chronologically. I have not done this in several years. I will be using the Chronological Life Application Study Bible. I will be reading it in the King James Version which was released in October 2013. (They've also got this in the New Living Translation.) If you're curious and want to see more, try reading the sample provided by Amazon.  There is also a video. I was thrilled to see the KJV in paragraph form! And it is black letter as well!!! I also appreciate the fact that the bible clearly states in the introduction that reading the chronological bible should not be the only way you read and encounter Scripture. That it is to supplement  one's reading of the Bible.

The chronology is broken into ten sections:
