Following Morris' post on how to Simulate a Chronological Bible, I thought it might be useful to have a proper Chronological Bible in Logos.

So here's a Personal Book that uses dynamic text give you your very own chronological Bible in your favourite Bible version. If you compile it has a Bible Harmony you'll even have a dropdown menu that will allow you to change the version whenever you like.

There are two versions, one with dates so you can use it for daily readings, and one without

Thank you so much! I literally just considered making this last night, and then I saw this on the forum. What a blessing!  I wouldn't have thought to build as a harmony to allow for changing translations.  Smart guy!

Grace and Peace be yours in abundance!

Mark, once again I greatly appreciate this resource, however I have one small hang up.  I intended on using this as an audio bible, and when I command logos to read aloud, it only reads the Chapter headings you have created ie. "gen 1-3" etc. It does not read the Bible text at all.  Is there something I can do to the docx.as a work-around for this?  I obviously do not expect you to update the file just for me, but I'm not sure how to correct it on my own.  Any help is a blessing. 

Thank you for all your service on the forums!

James

This is a limitation of the Read Aloud feature, which doesn't read dynamic text. You could  suggest that Logos change it, but there's no guarantee that they would.

There's no easy way of fixing this on your own, other than using the Copy Bible Verses Tool to copy and paste the bible text into the Word document.

Thanks Mark, I will try just making a PDF and then PDF reader should read it aloud, I hadn't thought of any other software reading it except logos.

This is great! Tx Mark. 

I have created the plan in the desktop app, but for some reason it is not pulling through as an option on my iPad. Any idea why?

Mark's plan uses a Personal Book and these are not currently available on mobile devices.

What is the source for the Chronological placement of the NT writings in correlation to the Book of Acts?

Looks to me like Mark already answered, this way:

Anyone have guidance on how to use the dates in the dated version? (I compiled both...)

Thanks!

Figured it out: compiled "both" books from same file. Recompiled the dated one with the dated file & it now works like Mark's picture....

Many thanks again, Mark!

I did see that, but I guess I thought the word "data" was only relevant to the scheduling of the reading plan itself not necessarily to chronological integration/placement ...but that does make sense.

Just and FYI, I took a moment and contacted Back to the Bible.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Query:
--------------

I'm curious what source you used to integrate the chronological placement of the NT letters with the book of Acts?

Reply from backtothebible.org:
-------------------------------------------

Thank you for contacting us about the Chronological Bible Reading Guide. Since our reading guides were developed many years ago, we're unable to provide specific details on how the final reading plans were compiled.

Again, we apologize we're unable to give you a more exact answer. But just know that among chronological reading guides there will be much variation.  Have a blessed day!

Can I use this plan for 2015 and how do I incorporate it into Logos Software?
