God’s “Epic,” Chronologically

The books of the Bible aren’t in chronological order – they are sorted according to style of literature instead – but we will be using that order as we work our way through our current series, “Epic,” which covers the whole of God’s tale from creation to Revelation. It can be a little confusing to try to read the Bible chronologically, but this reading plan on YouVersion can help you accomplish it in two months.

Here’s the full list:
