About the Abide Bible

Do you yearn for life-giving, intimate communion with God? The Abide Bible is designed to help you experience the peace, hope, and growth that comes from encountering the voice and presence of God in Scripture. Every feature in Abide is designed to teach and develop Scripture-engagement habits that help you know the power and spiritual nourishment of abiding in Christ.
Why the Abide Bible
Created in partnership with Bible Gateway and the Taylor University Center for Scripture Engagement, The Abide Bible’s features include articles, book introductions, and practical Scripture engagement prompts based on five ways of engaging deeply with the Bible:
- Praying Scripture: Pattern your prayers after biblical texts, personalizing the prayer and gaining language for the thoughts and emotions you want to express.
- Picture It: Place yourself in a biblical narrative as a bystander or participant important events.
- Journaling: Focus and reflect on Scripture and its meaning for your life, opening yourself to God’s voice as you ponder.
- Engage Through Art: Consider a classic piece of art—photograph, sculpture, painting—and let it deepen your meditations on scriptural truths.
- Contemplate: Follow the church’s longstanding practice of reading, meditating on, praying, and contemplating a passage of Scripture in order to experience God’s presence through the words of the Bible.
- Bible book introductions provide a concise overview of the background and historical context of the book about to be read.

My Review of the Abide Bible
Over the years, I’ve used several different Bibles. Some of those were basic non-study Bibles, others were devotional Bibles, and some were study Bibles. Overall, I like to switch between translations from time to time in order to grasp what the Bible message truly is.
The Abide Bible is absolutely stunning. With the soft cover, images on the inside of the Bible and guided study, this Bible is absolutely perfect for everyone no matter where they are in their Christian journey. I absolutely LOVE the FREE Abide Experience that I shared about above. This experience guided me through John and taught me new ways to read scripture.
Even after being a Christian for many years, I am learning daily. Using the Abide Bible in my daily studies, I have found an even deeper understanding of the Bible. This Bible makes a GREAT gift for Christmas or for a believer on your gift list.
