*ESV Study Bible or NIV Zondervan Study Bible: We encourage everyone to invest in a study Bible because it’s the single most comprehensive resource to help you understand Scripture. It contains commentary, cross-references, maps, and other helpful resources. http://astore.amazon.com/redchuaz-20

*YouVersion Bible app: This free app will allow you to always have the Bible in your pocket. It has both the text and audio version of the whole Bible.

*The Bible Experience (audio Bible): Some people prefer to listen to Scripture rather than read it. That’s totally okay! It’s how the original audience would have engaged God’s Word. We recommend this particular audio Bible because of it’s rich and dramatic reading that draws us into the Story.

Drama of Scripture by Mike Goheen: This fantastic book helps you understand why it’s important to read the Bible as a comprehensive story that gives meaning to all of life. http://astore.amazon.com/redchuaz-20

*How to Read the Bible Book by Book by Gordon Fee: This book provides an accessible and comprehensive explanation of each book of the Bible, and it provides specific advice for engaging each particular book. http://astore.amazon.com/redchuaz-20
