I feel like I may need to change my Bible soon but I am not so sure.
I have had the one I use since my University days, and I love it so much . There are tons of markings and jottings inside it in blue, red, black pens. I feel like it needs to be changed but I don’t know if I will feel the same way with a new one…..HOWEVER this current one is about ten years, (it is that old ) and I have glued it once or twice once it started to get torn just because I didn’t want to let go of it.
I am not certain I can salvage the front and Back covers any longer. Especially the front. The inside pages are still intact though even if a little brown. I think it needs changing soon though.
Plus I teach on Sunday mornings in the Church, and I don’t know if it’s my imagination, but I feel the people in my class are sort of judging me for having such an old – should have been changed – Bible or will sort of wonder why it’s so old.
Does it really matter how my Bible looks? It shouldn’t, should it? It’s mine to read and no one else’s. Plus the words inside are still legible. Besides an old Bible is a good thing right? Shows it’s not just for decoration. People can be funny though. Or maybe I am imagining things. But I am definitely not exaggerating how the front cover looks. I am slightly ashamed to post a pic.
What kind of Version of the Bible do you use? I use a King James Version. And I have been thinking of getting a simpler version. You know, written in simpler English.
Do you use a Study Bible or a Commentary?
I have the Matthew Henry Concise Commentary on my phone but I have realized that I love to discover what the Bible says by myself. I still use it in some instances. It was useful when I went through the Book of Exodus.
Do you recommend any Bible Version, Reading Plan or study outline?i would love for you to contribute to this post by dropping a comment.
