Bible Features

How they are used

Text Bibles

Text Bibles are typically just the text of Scripture with no additional notes.

Reference Bibles

Reference Bibles typically contain the text of Scripture plus a verse cross-reference system, so the reader can refer to related passages. Cross references won't be comprehensive, but will point out the main passages that discuss this idea.

Red Letter Bibles

Red Letter Bibles indicate the spoken words of Christ in red.

Thumb Index Bibles

Thumb Index Bibles help users quickly find Bible references. A thumb index is either cut into the page edging or attached as a label.

Devotional Bibles

Devotional Bibles are perfect for quiet time or reflecting on Scripture. Devotional thoughts are interspersed with Scripture in an easy-to-follow daily format. Ideal gifts for marriage and birthdays for close relatives and friends.

Study Bibles

Study Bibles are appropriate for those who want to learn more about biblical people, places, times and specific Bible passages. A Study Bible has footnotes and articles intended to enhance your understanding of each passage. Study Bibles can also include maps, charts, book introductions, outlines and concordances.

The Chronological Study Bibles

The Chronological Study Bible is the only Bible that presents the text in chronological order - the order in which the events actually happened.

The Life Application Study Bible contains notes that not only explain difficult passages and give information on Bible life and times, but also go a step further to show how God's Word speaks to every situation and circumstance of life. It's the one Bible resource that incorporates today's top scholarship in answering "now what?" questions and includes nearly 10,000 Life Application notes and features designed to help readers apply God's truth to everyday life.

Thematic Study Bibles

Reading the Scriptures with the translations on the same page sheds a new light on reading the Bible. Setting beloved and classic translations side-by-side, parallel Bibles allow readers to gain insight from the distinctive nuances of each translation.

Gift Bibles

Usually white in a presentation box, gift Bibles are the ideal present for Christenings, Confirmations, Weddings and other special occasions.
