There are several free online Bibles I use from time to time. Each has its own unique flavor and loyal following. And all of them offer an impressive long list of translations.
Where they differ is special features. If you are looking to study Bible verses, plan a sermon, or create an online study group, Bible Study Tools (www.BibleStudyTools.com) has developed the world’s largest online Bible resource site.
- 45+ Translations
Bible Study Tools features a growing number of Bible versions, including translations in English, German, French, Italian, and Latin.
- Largest Online Library of Bible Resources
Choose from well-known and respected Bible commentaries, concordances, dictionaries, and encyclopedias and enjoy access to the Apocrypha, lexicons, and historical works. This library includes the insights of John Calvin, Matthew Henry, Charles Spurgeon, and C.I. Scofield and features such classics as the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, Nave’s Topical Bible, Fox’s book of Martyrs, and The Works of Flavius Josephus.
- Reading Plans & Devotionals
Begin a trackable Bible reading plan or choose from an extensive list of devotionals by many of Christianity’s most recognizable pastors, authors, and theologians.
- Pastor Resources
Get help planning your sermons by reading articles on effective preaching by respected ministers and search for sermons and illustrations using Bible Study Tool’s extensive database.
- Personalize Your Experience
Use the “My Bible” features to personalize the website with your own Bible study notes, highlights, tags and bookmarks.
- Community Groups & Events
BibleStudyTools.com also includes tools to allow small groups and Sunday school classes to create group pages for studying Scripture together online and event pages for connecting offline.
It is a generous selection of features that takes some time to delve through it all. And it is particularly exciting to see the valuable publications from their library made available for free online.
