If you’re looking to grow in studying the Bible, here are some recommended resources. There are countless books, sermons, podcasts, articles, and blogs available on the topic, so this is just to get you started.
Just in case it wasn’t obvious, you need a copy of the Bible. Many now use an online or electronic version, but I’ve found personally that a printed one works better because it minimizes distractions.
