Tips and Resources for Anyone Wishing to Further their Skill in Studying the Bible:
Complete Bible Reference Study Library by James Strong – I have a copy on Kindle and it is fantastic – this is my number one choice. Contains the Bible, both Hebrew and Greek Bible dictionaries, concordances and more at your fingertips. It contains in-verse links to Strong’s Bible dictionaries. This allows you to literally dig into word studies of the original languages on the fly — can have the Kindle app, which is free, on phone and/or computer. I believe there is also an app for this library.
BibleGateway.com FREE tool for searching the Bible in any version. You can do a search of EVERY English translation of one verse with one click. Also offer commentaries and libraries of info to study, along with devotionals, etc.
Young’s Literal Version (I also have on Kindle) is always a good backup Bible version to have on hand, to check accuracy – if you can handle old English. It is one of the more accurate to the original languages.
Audio Bible! (many options in Amazon or iTunes)
Crosswalk.com FREE with many articles, resources, and devotionals and much more
