Do You Have a Favorite Bible?


I want to get a new Bible for Christmas and am overwhelmed by all the options. I like to take notes but am not sure I want a journaling Bible. Which Bible do you use? Any recommendations?

A couple years ago I was looking for a new Bible and, like you, wanted something with room for notes.  I got 'single column' Bible, which is a little different look and has quite a bit of space for notes, especially in the parts where there is poetry.  Some of them even have intentionally wider spaces designed for notes.


Zach, thank you for this! Really great suggestion. Might go with this single column Bible. 


I still far and away prefer the NIV (84) Study Bible, had it a very long time and still love it.

I use the Quest Bible for my bible study. I was given this by my family just before I went on a mission trip to Colima Mexico.

For me the Quest Bible really helps me study as it assists with meaning of Scripture passages. Helps answer passages that I don't understand with theological and historical incite. There are over 300 articles written by theological scholars, dictionaries, maps and bible indexes.
