The web is full of resources to help you in your reading, studying, understanding, and applying of God's Word. Here are a few that we have found helpful and responsible.
There are SO many different translations of the Bible. But why? What's the difference between them? Shouldn't they all come out the same? This online PDF provides an excellent explanation of the different kinds of translations that are out there and what each is designed to be.
And, in addition to there being so many translations, there are so very many different Bibles. Each one has its unique benefits. Here is a pretty complete selection of what's available today.
Here is a great site for searching the Bible online, including a wide variety of translations and search methods. They've also added other helpful resources, and now they offer a very cool app, as well.
A number of sites provide photographs of the lands of the Bible. This site has an excellent collection, well-organized, and featuring helpful captions.
For many years, we shared with members of The 3x5 Club this recommendation: "If you ever decide that you would like a high-end piece of Bible software, with an incredible array of translations, search capabilities, study devices and resources, original language tools, and more, we enthusiastically recommend BibleWorks!"
We were very sad, therefore, to learn that BibleWorks was discontinuing their products in 2018.
Happily, however, there is a remarkable treasury of online resources -- many of them free -- that are now available to the serious Bible student. Among the ones we recommend are Blue Letter Bible, Bible Gateway, Bible Hub, and the American Bible Society.
