I have two Bibles, one, my preferred Bible, is a NIV Scoffield Bible my grandparents, who are now deceased, gave me in 1998. Some time ago, I accidentally ripped the front cover and repaired with duck tape on the inside. The Bible I take to church is a NIV Student Bible with a two-tone lavender cover and my name embossed on the bottom. I take this one to church because it’s my favorite color and lacks duck tape!
Each year when we start a new Bible study, I want a new Bible. There are probably several in my Amazon cart. Then, I realize that a new Bible will not have all of my notes in the margins - and I may need those notes! The Scoffield Bible has study notes and the lavender Bible has sermon notes. A creature of habit, I continue to use the same Bibles year after year.
Inside his Bible, Lincoln wrote, “In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Saviour gave to the world was communicated through this book. But for it, we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are to be found portrayed in it.”
So, now we know.
What’s in your Bible?
Thank you for reading! Have a blessed week!
