I have four bible study resources that I reach for regularly: The New Westminster Dictionary of the Bible, How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth, the New Inductive Study Bible and the ESV Study Bible. If you are not familiar with these resource, then I highly recommend you watch this short video for a quick tour of each. Then I recommend you get at least one of these resources to begin adding depth and breadth to your reading.
Note: For those of you who are taking my freeThrough The Bible in a Year online course and want a more thorough companion than just the quick notes I provide, you will want to get How to Read the Bible Book by Book: A Guided Tour by Gordon D. fee and Douglas Stuart. It is an awesome readable resource that will give you specific advice for how to get the most out of each book of the Bible. It is my favorite resource for a book by book study.
If after watching the video you are interested in learning more about these great resources or purchasing one, then here are links for your convenience:
Blessings upon your reading of the Word,
p.s. If you are unfamiliar with my Through The Bible in a Year Reading program, I have created a program specifically designed to help people read the entire bible in one year. In the program you get tips and training regularly to help you succeed. Even though it began January 1st, the reformatted schedule allows you to start at any time. I would love for you to join us.
