Here is a copy of the Reese Chronological Bible verses taken from the Web.  You can run this as a lectionary.

I find that Reese is more detailed in his chronology than other plans which focus on Chapters instead of verses.  Example- reese tries to intergret the Psalms with the life of David. You may not agree with all his chronology but I believe you will find it very enjoyable reading through this Bible in the coming year.  

The only area I need help with is creating a Bible reading plan based on this lectionary.  Any help will be appreciated.   

I originally wanted to create a passage list of all verses in Chronological order and open them in my Bible as a Passage List but to my disappointment I found out that they are automatically resorted in Canonical order which defeat my purpose. Sad I wish there was a way to change this.

John when you apply a passage list as a filter to a bible all it does is hide from view the verses that are not part of the list. It is not resorting anything. The order of the text is fixed, You can't resort the text of any book. You can only resort selected user created documents such as passage lists and note files.  So the filter isn't automatically resorting your bible into canonical order because it's already in that order and the order can't be changed.

I under stand technically what you are saying but I wish it could appear in the order of the passage list.

How then do I choose a bible reading plan based on a lectionary?  A link to a video would be of great help.

Lectionaries are not my area of expertise since I come from a non-liturgical background I have not explored building my own lectionary and neither have I tried to create a reading plan from a lectionary.  All I can say with my limited knowledge of this area is that within Logos lectionaries are normally used on the home page instead of as reading plans so I am not sure how a reading plan would work.

As the dates are already in the resource, there is no need to create a reading plan simply:

  • compile the personal book with the type "lectionary"
  • on the Home page, select the gear icon for customization
  • on the right, select the new "lectionary" (check box) and drag and drop to the desired position
  • it will now appear on your home page

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

You may need to restart Logos to see it in the gearbox where you customize the homepage.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I compiled as a lectionary but it doesn't show. I opened lectionary to see if it would parallel but didn't show there either

The tagging of the PB source is not that of a lectionary (@yearmonthday, such as 1 January, 2017) but that of a calendar devotional (@dayofyear, such as 1 January - here even worse: [[@dayofyear.1.1]] ) and won't work. Sorry, I didn't check earlier.

Try this file: 4278.7450.Reese Chronological Bible.lectionary.docx

It will compile as type:lectionary and (after restarting Logos) you should be able to see it as a potential candidate for the lefthand-column of the homepage. 

There it will look like this:

 

Still not fancy (and I think it misses out on one day somewhere), but working as a lectionary.

Thank you Mick for the 2017 date version.

It would be nice to have Frank Clausen's "The chronology of the Bible" to go along with this.
