The Expanded Bible
The Expanded Bible is quickly becoming one of my favorite references when i want to get deeper into God's word, and get a deeper meaning as well. I Love Love LOVE to find the meaning behind the words used in the Bible to try and get a deeper understanding of what's being written and The Expanded Bible has now made that Much easier for me! One of my favorite features is having the expanded parts (like the different meanings of the words, the cross references for other scriptures, ect...) lined up right with the text. It made it so much easier to find! I spent a great deal of time (especially when preparing Bible studies) online searching for information like this, so i am in love with the idea that now all i have to do is open The Expanded Bible in order to find this out!!! It took a bit of getting used to, with the layout looking slightly different (since the 'helps' are alongside the text) but once you get past that, its proven already to be an incredibly Vaulable resourse!! In the long run this will be saving me hours of searching and allow me to be putting that time into getting to know God's Word even better! I 100% recommend this book to anyone who wants a better understanding of the Bible!!
