Question
What resources are available to help study the Bible?
Answer

Reference books help us understand the Bible.  Reference materials meet three basic needs:

1. For an overview of the Bible, choose a Bible Handbook or Bible Companion.

2. To help you find something in the Bible, choose a Bible Concordance and a Topical Bible or search topics and verses via an online Bible Search like www.Biblegateway.com.

3. To help you understand something in the Bible, choose a Bible Dictionary and a Bible Commentary.

Each of these reference books should be directly connected with your preferred Bible translation. For example, if you read the NIV Bible translation, your reference books and software should be keyed to the NIV.
