What is the true chronological order of the Bible?
The Bible only loosely arranges its books in chronological order. It comes mostly arranged thematically. For example, the Old Testament lists the 5 books of Moses first, then the history of the Israelites, then the teachings of Israelite prophets.
What is the correct way to read the Bible?
Rather than setting out to read passage after passage simply for the sake of reading the Bible front to back, try reading it in very small bits and pieces. Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to lead you and then choose a single verse or two. Read it, then read it again. Read it in several translations.
Do you read the Bible front to back?
Yes, it is worth reading the Bible from front to back. Three chapters a day will get you through it in about a year.
Should I read the Bible from beginning to end?
It is not a necessity. However, you should read each book from start to finish if you want to understand the Bible better. Whether you read the books in the semi-arbitrary manner they are conventionally ordered or not does not matter too much.

What is a good Bible to read and understand?
Literal Translation – New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The NASB is arguably the best literal translation you can use. It is the best translation if you are looking at doing an inductive study on a passage or prefer to read as close to the original language as possible.
Where should new believers start reading the Bible?
Start with a Book of the Bible such as John
Part of the reason I would recommend starting with the book of John, and not a book like Genesis, is that John gives you an overview of the story of salvation: the life, death and resurrection of Christ.
How do you read and understand?
I summarize below what I think it takes to read with good speed and comprehension.

Why You Should Read the Bible Regularly
First, the Bible shows us God’s character and provides us God’s revelation of himself to his people. Third, regularly reading God’s word reorients our thinking so that we can grow in maturity, which is part of the Christian calling (Ephesians 4:14–16; Romans 12:1–2).
What happens when you finish reading the Bible?
Therefore, when you‘ve finished reading the Bible, read it again! For the Bible is God’s Word to us, it is living and active, and therefore it will teach us, rebuke us, correct us, train us in righteousness, so that we may be equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
