Accu-Gel Highlighters and Pigma MicronPN – Review

GT Luscombe provides some of the best Bible highlighters available. I typically avoid highlighters because of bleed-through. All products from GT Luscombe are made for marking in Bibles and will not bleed through the paper. There will almost always be some show-through. That’s to be expected when you have paper in the 20-40 gsm (grams per square meter) range. But, you won’t see ink soaking through (or bleeding through) the paper. In this review I’mm taking a look at two products that I think are great for Bible marking – Accu-Gel Highlighters and a new black Pigma Micron marker called...

Can You Write in a Cambridge Clarion?

I’ve always been avid Bible marker but I haven’t had the courage to mark up my Cambridge Clarion. I was afraid of bleed-through. I’ve also had several readers ask about this, so I know I’m not the only one. Well, Christopher Lewis marked in his and I have to say that I’m impressed.

The highlighter does a great job. The paper in...

Writing in an Expensive Bible

Many of us don’t feel comfortable writing in our Bibles. The more expensive the Bible the harder it is to take a pen to it and start writing. Many times I write something barely legible and try to fix it only to make it worse.

Here are a few tips that may help you if you want to write in your...

Bible Marking Pens and Pencils

One of the most popular questions I’m asked is what kind of pens and pencils I use for writing and marking in my Bible. There are many good markers, highlighters, pens, and pencils available. I’ve used many of them with various marking methods. Here’s my favorite: I use Pigma Micron markers to write notes in the margins of my wide-margin Bible. They are archival quality and have almost no bleed-through and they don’t smear. They come in several tip-sizes and colors. I use 005 for notes. I use black for chain references, blue for headings, red for textual notes,...

Active Reading through Highlighting

One of the most valuable active reading methods is highlighting. Highlighting is a good way to identify the main points of a text. Some of the most useful things to highlight include words, phrases, and sentences. This helps to understand the thought of the writer. It also helps in determining meaning, and is a great help in memorization. For me, highlighting is one of the best memorization tools. I use highlighting differently than I use color-coding. For color-coding, I color topics. You can also use color-coding for memory verses, verses that speak to you, and many others. In highlighting,...
