We aim to provide reviews for various Bibles particularly with an aim to youth ministry. If you’re looking for a Bible for a young person whether they’re entering youth, in youth or a gift to a graduate, we hope to provide you with some information to help with your decision. We’ve bought a lot of bibles so you don’t have to!
The study Bible is an essential tool for every Bible reader. Whilst the Holy Spirit is necessary for the Bible to be truly understood and applied to the life of the believe, scholars are also an essential help provided by God as a gift to his church. Even if you don’t believe this to be true, for you to receive even a text edition of the Bible you require scholars to look at all of the manuscripts available and determine the most likely original text, and translate that text. Even if you’re KJV only, the only difference is that the scholars that carried out these tasks are no longer living. May this be your encouragement independent of your tradition, especially if it’s weary of academic study, to try out a study Bible for your library.
Full reviews for each Bible including YouTube and written reviews are forthcoming and will be added to this page when available.
