    I just got my "The Books Of The Bible" ( TNIV ) in the mail today . I got it for free . It orders the books of the Bible chronologically . It also has no verse or chapter distinctions , no headings or footnotes either . I'll be able to enjoy lots of free roaming as I read for longer periods of time . I'll have none of the normal distractions .

    I'm really looking forward to this . It arrived less than 30 minutes ago .

    Just looked this up on CBD, and it seems to be more of a Reader's Digest condensed version of the Bible.

    (Assuming this is the product you have
    "The Books of the Bible
    By: John H. Sailhamer
    Zondervan / 1998 / Paperback" )

    If this is not correct, I'd like more info--!

    No , you're wrong . As I said the books ( all 66 ) are arranged chronologically , so the order is different than what we are used to . And it has the other features I mentioned .

    So let me get back to my reading !

    While the TNIV is an improvement of the NIV, it is not for everyone.

    While the NASBU is an improvement of the NASB , it is not for everyone .

    I've preached from the TNIV before. In fact, some of my favorite evangelical scholars were either translator or endorsers of the TNIV:

    Gordon Fee
    Douglas Moo
    Bruce Waltke
    DA Carson
    Darrell Bock
    Tremper Longman, III.
    John Stott

    The fact that all of these staunch conservative scholars endorsed and/or translated the TNIV gives it a lot of credibility in my book too. Especially Stott, Fee, and Moo -- all of who I have met personally; each of them have a spiritual life that I look up to!

    Add these guys also : Craig Blomberg , Timothy George , Allan Johnson , John R. Kohlenberger III , Roger Nicole , Mark Strauss . Warren Wiersbe is not a scholar as such but well-respected in the evangelical community over the last 50 years or so .
