Favorite Bible Resources & Online Tools

Please remember these are tools and not the word of God.  What I enjoy or find interesting you may not.  If anything comes up later about a person that we have endorsed, they will be removed from the resource list.  However, we must always remember, that God can use anyone, even the ones that we may think that He would not (For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and My ways are not your ways,” says the Lord.- Is 55:9). Furthermore, we all must be diligent to present ourselves as approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth 2 Tim 2:15.  We can not depend on others to do our research for us.  We have to take responsibility for our own research. 

Day by Day Chronological BibleWe will be using THIS Bible for Bible Time with Mark and Cori in 2021! I love this Bible for it's white space (easy to write notes in, plus a 6 day a week reading schedule. The 'leatherish' version is affordable too!). The CSB translation has a little persnickety issue, though, you can read about more in detail here

The Word in Life Study Bible - I refer to my most favorite study Bible as 'Big Blue' and love it so dearly! Unfortunately the full OT/NT version is hard to find so this is for the New Testament Edition (a great, inexpensive study Bible with lots of interesting details and easy to read) - IMPORTANT TIP WHEN ORDERING the FULL OT/NT: listen here

New King James Thinline Bible - This is my every day daily Bible and has some great features including maps and a Romans Road tool. I love it's weight and portability.

Abide Bible - I prefer the NKJV version, great for creatives! It is filled with prompts that inspire journaling and creating as well. 

The New Testament in Modern English - This is a great translation for the New Testament that is very easy to read by J.B. Phillips. I learned about it from several well known Bible scholars who quote from it and have it in their own libraries.

Tanakh: The Holy Scriptures - This Old Testament Bible is translated from Hebrew by the Jewish Publication Society and is a really easy to read translation. You can grab a used copy really cheap.
