Read and Engage with Scripture in a Whole New Way! The Books of the Bible is a fresh yet ancient presentation of Scripture. As many distractions as possible have been eliminated so readers can experience each book the way its authors intended. No more chapter and verse numbers. No more study notes. No more cross references or footnotes. No more red letters. Natural section breaks have been adjusted to reveal the inherent structure, showing the contours of each book in a way that traditional chapter-and-verse Bibles do not. The books of the Bible are arranged in an order that helps you see the unfolding drama more easily and book introductions are included to prepare you for a more in-depth reading experience. These “invitations” tell the story behind the story, unlocking the context of the book you’re about to read. The Books of the Bible uses Scripture from the New International Version (NIV), an accurate, readable and clear translation with the goal of delivering the same Bible reading experience today that the first recipients of Scripture would have had in their native languages. In The Books of the Bible, New Testament readers will enter the story of Jesus, his church, and his return. Covenant History is part 1 (of 4) of The Books of the Bible series, which is a part of the church wide-campaign, The Community Bible Experience. The Bible books included are: Genesis Exodus Leviticus Numbers Deuteronomy Joshua Judges Ruth Samuel–Kings Features: Single-column format for a clean, simple, elegant reading experience Book introductions

Return to the Bible as it was before chapters and verses. The Bible isn’t a single book. It’s a collection of many books that were written, preserved and gathered together so that they could be shared with new generations of readers. The Bible is an invitation to you to first view the world in a new way, and then to become an agent of the world’s renewal. The Books of the Bible, NIV helps you have a more meaningful encounter with the sacred writings and to read with more understanding, so that you can take your place more readily within this story of new creation. This is a revolutionary new presentation of the NIV Scripture that strips away centuries of artificial formatting, leaving behind nothing but pure Bible text. The result is a Bible unlike any other available today — and more like the original Scriptures: specially designed to be read from start to finish. “There is no Bible more suited to reading from beginning to end.” — Scot McKnight, author of Jesus Creed Features: Specifically, this edition of the Bible differs from the most common current format in several significant ways: • Chapter and verse numbers have been removed from the text • The books are presented instead according to the internal divisions that we believe their authors have indicated • A single-column setting is used to present the text more clearly and naturally, and to avoid disrupting the intended line breaks in poetry • Footnotes, section headings and any other additional materials have been removed from the pages of the sacred text • Individual books that later tradition divided into two or more parts are put back together again • The books are arranged in an order that helps you understand the Bible more completely

While millions of Bibles are distributed in North America every year, most of them are never read. One significant reason for this is that the Bible has been shaped over time in a way that makes it difficult to read and understand. But the Scriptures are now being released in a new format designed to help readers overcome the problems that the traditional presentation creates. In this new edition, The Books of The Bible, chapters and verses have been removed, the books appear in a new order, and longer works that were divided over time have been restored to unity. Christopher R. Smith is a member of the team that worked with the International Bible Society to develop this new edition. In this book, he traces the history and effects of the traditional elements that have shaped the customary presentation of the Scriptures. He describes how the new format was developed to help overcome these effects. And he explains how The Books of The Bible can be used effectively for personal devotions, group studies, sermon preparation and the other disciplines by which we apply the teachings of Gods word to our lives. The Rev. Dr. Christopher R. Smith is pastor of the University Baptist Church of East Lansing, Michigan. He has a B.A. in literature from Harvard University, an M.A.T.S. in church history from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a Ph.D. in theology from Boston College. His articles have appeared in such publications as The Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, New Testament Studies, Novum Testamentum, and Vigilae Christianae.
