I’ve been reading Don’t Know Much About the Bible by Kenneth C. Davis recently (I’ll get a review up eventually) and I quite like the way he’s ordered the books of the Old Testament. Rather than simply following the traditional Christian Bible’s order, he’s arranged the books with consideration to both theme and chronological order.

Reading the summaries of what’s in store for me, I found that his choices made a lot of sense, so I’ve decided to follow it for my own reading. You don’t notice a difference for a good long while since we have to get through the Pentateuch before there’s any deviation, but I thought you might like a heads up anyway.

You can check out the new order over at the Old Testament page.

Think I got it wrong? Want to suggest a different order? Let me know in the comments!
