More Resources for Individual Bible Study

             
  The New Revised Standard (NRSV) Bible is the translation that we have in our pews and is the most ecumenical translation (Presbyterians, Methodists, Catholics, Epsicopalians, Lutherans, Baptists and others helped translate it).
 
The very helpful NRSV Bible web site makes it easy for finding a word, passage and more in the Bible.
 
The Text This Week has a wealth of online Bible studies, sermons, biblical art and more for worship planning, group and individual Bible studies.
 
The Limestone Presbyterian Church Library has popular Daily Study Bible commentaries on the New Testament by William Barclay, New Testament For Everyone series by N. T. "Tom" Wright and The New Interpreter’s Bible for in-depth study of the Bible.
   

Some Favorite Bibles and Other Books:
 
The Discipleship Study Bible: New Revised Standard Version Including Apocrypha (Westminster John Knox Press, 2008) provides three emphases in its helpful notes: a focus on discipleship that is based on the scholarship and inclusive language of the NRSV translation; a concentration on social justice — acts of Christian care and concern for all God's people and God's entire world; and a concentration on personal piety — Christian acts of personal response to Scripture.
 
The Green Bible (HarperCollins, 2008) is for those who care about creation.
 
Poverty & Justice Bible (American Bible Society, 2009, Contemporary English Version) helps show the clear and numerous biblical teachings about helping the poor and working for justice.
