Do you have a gal in your life who loves to study the Bible? This list of 7 Christmas gift ideas will make your Christmas shopping super easy this year!
This Bible is the perfect gift for the gal who loves taking notes in her Bible. The ESV Interleaved Journaling Bible features a blank page for note-taking across from every page of biblical text.
"Patterned after the Bible that Jonathan Edwards, the 18th-century preacher and theologian, used to record more than 5,000 notes about God's Word, the ESV Journaling Bible, Interleaved Edition features a full, blank page next to every page of Bible text. Created for Bible readers looking for as much space as possible for sermon notes, personal reflections, prayers, or artwork, this edition features cream-colored paper and a durable binding to ensure that it lasts a lifetime."
I received these scripture journals last year for Christmas and they were my favourite gift. This set of Scripture journals features one book of the Bible per journal. They have the biblical text on one side of the page and a blank page opposite for journaling. They come in colour or black and gold. They are available in ESV and CSB. The books are also available for purchase individually. These are perfect for the person who wants to journal extensively but doesn't want to carry around a bulky Bible.
"ESV Scripture Journals pair the text of individual books of the New Testament with lightly lined blank pages opposite each page of biblical text. This allows readers to take extended notes or record insights and prayers directly beside corresponding passages of Scripture. This edition features the entire New Testament set, and is great for personal Bible reading and reflection, small-group study, or taking notes through a sermon series."
The Dwell Bible App is one of the best audio Bible tools. With 10 different voices to choose from, you can experience the Bible through stories, key passages, themed playlists, or listening plans. Give the gift of Dwell this Christmas!
A tapestry is made up of hundreds of threads carefully woven together. Each coloured thread is knitted by the hands of an intentional creator who forms the thread to complete one beautiful tapestry. The Word of God can be compared to a tapestry. Through God’s intentional and creative hand, God has woven threads of certain themes that start at the beginning of Scripture and find their ultimate fulfillment in Christ’s Second Coming.
The Bible Themes Handbook is designed to help you trace these threads throughout Scripture and grow in your knowledge of biblical theology. Each entry in The Bible Themes Handbook covers the aspects of Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration.
Have you ever closed your Bible and thought, “What did I just read?” Or maybe you've tried to read through the Bible in a year, but quit when it felt confusing or impersonal? Are you one of the many who has read through the book of Genesis approximately 20 times, but hasn't read anything beyond that?
The Bible Recap is here to help!
The Bible Recap book is a written version of the short daily podcast (~8 minutes) hosted by Tara-Leigh Cobble. She highlights and summarizes that day’s Bible reading in a casual, easy to understand way. The Bible Recap will not only help you read scripture but help you love reading it!
A Holy God: A Study of Isaiah 1-39, is a 7-week Bible study that walks you through the first part of Isaiah verse by verse. In this fascinating book you will encounter a holy God who passionately pursues His children, promises to send a Saviour, and is extremely patient when His people stray from Him. Meet a holy God on the pages of Isaiah!
I have a stack of notebooks from the dollar store beside my Bible. Although these are not journals, they are filled with pages and pages of my handwriting. Over the years, I’ve developed a habit of Scripture writing—simply copying the text word for word in an ordinary spiral-bound notebook. This practice is absolutely life-giving! I started with the letter of Ephesians a few years ago and have continued handwriting many other books, with the ultimate goal of handwriting the entire Bible.
Handwriting Scripture is not a new practice. In fact, the ancient Israelite kings were required to write a copy of the Law on a scroll so it would be imprinted on their hearts and so they would learn to fear the Lord all the days of their lives. The same is true for us today. The practice of handwriting the Word of God serves to imprint it on our hearts, leading us to awe and worship.
I hope you've been able to find a gift or two that would be perfect for the Bible study girl in your life!

Join us for the Story of Redemption Bible Reading Challenge!
This 40-day Bible reading plan follows the narrative arc of Scripture. As we move through the Bible chronologically, we will stop at places along the way that speak to God’s plan throughout the history of redemption.
Each day includes three passages of Scripture totaling 4-5 chapters of daily reading. The first passage is the main passage in the storyline. The second passage is a connecting passage from the other testament that supports what is happening in the overall meta-narrative. The third passage is a psalm that speaks to the ideas found in the previous passages.
Challenge yourself to look for connections as you read. Remember, the Bible is ONE story; the Old Testament points forward to the New Testament and the New Testament is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. As you begin to see the connections, Scripture takes on a whole new meaning. There are treasures to be unearthed.
Starts January 8, 2024!
