Bible Study Tip
One of the most valuable tools you can obtain for effective Bible Study is a good wide margin Bible, in readable print. The extra space you will have for making notes will be invaluable. Over the years you will create an invaluable resource for your Bible study and reference. It will definitely be an aid to chain referencing your Bible, as well as making notes from sermons and personal study.

As a minister, the wide margin Bible I make notes in is the the most valuable utilitarian resource I utilize. A good, useable Bible, that is suited for your needs, is one of the best investments you can make.

I would discourage you from making your main Bible some of the modern ‘”study Bibles”. They are O.K. for some reference material , but much of them are biased and some of the notes very misleading. You will find your personal notes put into your Bible much more meaningful and helpful. A well marked Bible is a gold mine.
