Week of 3.22.2015-3.28.2015
HOW TO CHOOSE A BIBLE
One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is, "How do I select the right Bible?" Since the Bible is the Word of God and the most important book in the world, selecting one should be done with care and great thought. A good Bible must be viewed as a spiritual investment, so don't just settle on the cheapest thing you can find. So let me give you several guides that are helpful in making your choice.
