My Go-to Bible Study Books

My everyday carry Bible is the Didache Bible: With Commentaries Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I also use the smaller New Testament and Psalms from Ignatius Press. Both use the RSV:2CE translation, which is my favorite english version.

I also really love the Word on Fire Bible. So far they have only released the first volume which is the Gospels. It is so unique, I use it all the times when I just want to read and not really study.

My first rebound Bible

I took the Didache bible from Ignatius Press and combined it with the Compendium of the Catholic Church.

One afternoon I was reading the Compendium and I noticed something interesting. I had my bible out when I realized how close they were in size. I grabbed my tape measure out and sure enough, they were both 6”x9”!

“Eureka!” I said, (or at least would have if I were this was a movie). I would combine the Didache Bible, with the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church! These are the two books I carry around with me all the time anyway when I study my bible, it makes sense to place them under the same roof!

I boxed them up  and off they went to sunny South Florida at the headquarters of AA Leather. I patiently waited each day by my mailbox. After only two short weeks, the mailman knocked on my door and handed my a big package!

I chose forest green as the color with leather cowhide. And couldn’t be more happy with the work Andrew and the whole gang at AA Leather did for my bible. I love it so much, I want to just place it on my shelf and not touch it! We all know that’s not going to happen!
