You will find there are many other exciting variations of basic Study Bibles available. In the Chronological Study Bible, for example, the books are arranged by the date or year, they were actually written. You will find in some cases that is not the same as the order they appear in your regular Bible. For example, in the Old Testament many of the Psalms-in the book Psalms-were written by King David. Some were written before he even became king. That happened in the book of II Kings, but because there were other writers in Psalms besides King David, that book was arranged in our modern Bibles to come after Kings. Chronological Study Bibles re-arrange the books to match the timelines of the writers.
