1. The NASB (New American Standard Bible) has a great word-for-word translation and accuracy from the original languages of the Bible into English. A must-have version.
2. NKJV (New King James Version) Bible is an update from the KJV (King James Version) Bible. It provides easier reading than the KJV, hence it is well suited if you like the KJV but want to have a modern English version of it instead.
3. ESV (English Standard Version) Study Bible is a top recommended Study Bible. If you are looking for a study Bible that has so much information in it such as a concordance, notes, charts, cross-references, maps and articles too, then this is the one to look at.
4. The Legacy Standard Bible (LSB) is new on the block and was completed in 2021. It is an update to the NASB1995 version, so even better! ‘By translating individual words as consistently as possible within their various nuances, it allows the reader to discern the Author’s intent. In this way, the refinements in the LSB also preserve the legacy of the NASB.’ (The Legacy Standard Bible, n.d.).
5. The NIV (New International Version) is the recommended Bible version for very contemporary English. It ‘offers a balance between a word-for-word and thought-for-thought translation and is considered by many as a highly accurate and smooth-reading version of the Bible in modern English.’ (Bible Study Tools, 2022).
The New Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible by James Strong. Just as the name states, this is indeed an exhaustive concordance and one of the very best on the market! This concordance will give you a full list of where a word, say for example ‘suffering’, has been mentioned in the Bible. This is ideal if you are doing a topical Bible Study. It also has a Greek and Hebrew dictionary included! You can get this on Amazon.
1. New Bible Commentary by D.A. Carson, R.T. France, J.A. Motyer and G.J. Wenham. This is a one volume, in depth commentary, with maps and illustrations in it, which are useful when you want to dig deeper during your personal Bible Study. It also gives you information on Biblical history and how to interpret the Bible. It is clear and very detailed.
2. The MacArthur Bible Commentary by John MacArthur. From a well-known and well-respected preacher and teacher, this commentary is great for personal study at home; as it is a big book that gives you helpful information like maps, articles, word studies, and teaches you how to deal with the word of God. A great addition to your Bible Commentaries.
New Bible Dictionary by I.H. Marshall, A.R. Milliard, J.I. Packer & D.J. Wiseman. This is one of the best resources for anyone serious in getting a deeper understanding of some words, themes and phrases of the Bible. It is a great investment!
1. Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem. This book dives deep into different theological topics. It is like one of those must-haves for any student of the Bible. If you want to know the Bible and the doctrines that encompass the Bible, then this book is for you. Your theological understanding and insight will be elevated when you read this book.
2. Institutes of the Christian Religion: Calvin’s Own ‘Essentials’ Edition by John Calvin. Covering the core fundamentals of the Christian faith, this is a classic! An outstanding book that clarifies reformed theology and its doctrinal position. It is worth reading and you will be blown away.
