 Re: Study Bible

The Chronological study Bible by thomas Nelson may fit what you are looking for. We have the NKJV and it has a lot of history and timelines. It is a bit over the place in layout because it is in Chronological order, so you it's OK along side a normal bible.

Also the Lion Atlas of Bible History is good, although not a bible.

 Re:

I would recommend getting a resource book seperately that gives you all these facts like: "Halleys bible commentary" or other ones and just have the word of God with cross references separate.

I find many study bibles distracting from mediating purely on God's word.

 Re:

yeah i like this idea of getting a separate commentary, i looked up halleys and it looks very nice, i also like the atlas one.

i also find it a bit distracting and hard to carry around a study Bible. Thank u both, may the Lord bless u for ure advise

I second that. Halleys is the source I go to more than any other source for information. Every study Bible I have picked up, I almost always end up saying, "Well that is wrong," at some quick juncture when reading their outlines and conclusions.

If you can find an Older version of the book I also recommend that, as I have read somewhere that the modern publishers took a section out of the book that I am sure probably made Halley roll over in his grave when done.

 Re:

yeah Halleys commentary is very nice, i will call Rare Christian books so im sure jack can get me the older edition.

A thing to keep in mind is that i am very fascinated by history and biographies/customs...theology is a dime a dozen today (not that its all bad, cause its not) but a man that lives a secret life [of prayer/devotion] with God will be taught by His Spirit (grounded in the word, off course) and the men God strategically places in his life to mentor and mold him. But thats just me ;-)

edit: and off course the good advise of fellow brother and sisters hehe.

 Re: Study Bible

Even though it is NIV, I'd recommend:

Archaeological Study Bible, Personal Size: An Illustrated Walk Through Biblical History and Culture

Almost every other page in it describes some sort of historical/archaelogical information related to the text you are reading. It was put together by Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Great stuff.

 Re: Study Bible

I would maybe look at E-Sword its a free bible program for a computer, it offers quite a bit of information and historical stuff that I haven't gotten to indepth with but it has many different things that can be added different translations, commentaries, etc the best part is a great deal of it is free. The only things that aren't free are due to Copyright laws and the Publishers not releasing the version for use.

www.e-sword.net

Within the program is a tab that says Downloads, go to that tab and it will take you to the website where the commentaries, translations, devotionals, Maps, Timelines, etc. This program is the most cost effective that I have found and very handy to have.

It also has a books that are free to download, one of which I know focuses on the Jewish Culture and traditions. If this isn't what you are looking for its still worth the download unless you already have something on your computer that you enjoy using.
