ECPA's Rush To Press

For the first time ever, the popular Chronological Study Bible is available in the New International Version (NIV) translation. The Bible features the entire NIV text arranged in chronological order – the order the events actually happened – alongside beautifully designed full-color illustrations and photos of places, artifacts, and cultural phenomena, as well as fascinating articles that connect the Bible text to world and culture.


The Chronological Study Bible, originally released in the New King James Version in 2008, has consistently been a best-selling Bible for readers interested in studying God’s Word. By immersing the reader in Scripture in a dramatic and engaging way, The Chronological Study Bible offers a unique “you are there” experience of exploring biblical events and the history of God’s people.  Bible passages that were once difficult to understand can be read with new insight when studied in the context of biblical culture and world history.


“For years, The Chronological Study Bible has brought God’s Word to life for history enthusiasts, scholars, and those just looking to dive deeper into the Bible,” said Bob Sanford, Vice President and Associate Publisher for HarperCollins Christian Publishing. “By offering this Bible in the popular NIV translation for the first time, we’re excited to bring The Chronological Study Bible to a new audience.”


The Chronological Study Bible, NIV went on sale April 22, 2014.
