1. The Evidence Bible
This Bible is by Ray Comfort and is printed in the NKJV. It’s simply the best Bible I’ve ever found. It’s full of wonderful resources to help you prepare to share the gospel. It has tons of quotes, illustrations, and examples of evangelism, plus it offers articles about the proof of God’s existence, answers to common objections to the gospel, information on other religions, and so much more!
2. God’s Answers for Your Life
I’ve used this handy little book for years. It’s a simple but powerful resource with full verses arranged into sections by topic. Whatever questions you might be facing, chances are this book will have the scripture you need. I also love that it’s a smaller-sized book, so it can easily fit in my bag or purse!
3. Where to Find It in the Bible
This reference book is a great tool for locating verses for a much wider range of topics, and each topic is then broken down into subtopics that direct you to specific verses.
4. Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible
This baby is pretty much the gold standard of reference materials for Bible study. I use this for looking up words in the Bible that I need more context and amplification on. Each entry shows a brief phrase of scripture that contains the word along with every reference of that word in the Bible. It’s amazing and GREAT for digging into real study.
5. Vine’s Expository Dictionary
This resource goes hand-in-hand with the Strong’s Concordance, above. Where Strong’s gives you the location and reference for each word, Vine’s gives you the definitions. They work amazingly well to discover the meanings and contexts of the words used in their original languages, and you can compare them to the use of the same terms in other passages.
And there you have it! These 5 tools are mainstays in my library, and I hope they’ll make a huge impact on your Bible study as well!
Hi, I’m Liv! I’m a wife, pug mom, and hopeless chocoholic. I’m completely imperfect, but I’ve realized that’s okay, because Jesus is my perfection. Through surviving an eating disorder, losing my mom, and living on one income of $15,000 a year (debt-free), I’ve racked up real solutions that I can’t wait to share them with you!
I have a heart for women who want encouragement to embrace who they are through God’s grace, and I have a passion for seeing families succeed financially by learning to trust our Almighty Father vs. the “almighty” dollar.
At Liv By Grace, you’ll mostly find me sharing helpful content about God’s grace, prayer, trusting God with money, Bible study, sharing the gospel, relationships, and hot topics within the Christian community.
I also share helpful tips for saving money as well as resources for coping with chronic illness–endometriosis in particular, since I’m an endo warrior.
So if you’re interested in victorious living through the finished work of Jesus, Liv by Grace is for you! Come join me and find encouragement and resources for daily living.
And, as always, remember to live by grace!
