Got a Study Bible rec?
For Christmas I got the new C.S. Lewis Bible. It lives on my treadmill and I read it while I walk. Totally love it. (If you've read chapter 3 of It's No Secret that probably doesn't surprise you at all.)
I have another smaller Bible that lives in my car, for when I'm stuck in carpool line or waiting for a kid's practice to end. I probably own more than any one person really needs. But for about a decade now I've had one main study Bible. It's HUGE. I went all out and bought the leather, large print edition with the maps, study notes and built-in book tabs.
I've underlined in it. Written in the margins, and even drew a couple pictures in there of images God showed me in my prayer times. When you have that kind of history with God bound inside a Bible, you don't change main Bibles easily.
PS. SHERRY, girl, you won the Valentines' giveaway! But I don't have any contact info for you. Email me!
