Choosing My Preaching Bible part 3 – section headings and footnotes

This is the 3rd part of me choosing a Bible for preaching. This one includes some thoughts on using the section headings and the glossary in the footnotes of the Thomas Nelson Preaching Bible. I’ve noticed that I lean toward the text if it’s a small font. The larger fonts are easier to preach from. If I use a small font then it needs another benefit such as being my everything Bible, having wide margins, or having a certain type of layout.

    If maps, glossary and concordance didn’t matter to you,If you had to choose from Thomas Nelson ministers Bible, CBP 180 or tbs Windsor for Carry, preaching and reading on the go, which do you prefer?

      Hi John. That’s a tough one. I love all three. I’m not sure which I’d choose overall, but if I wanted a larger print I’d go with the 180. If I wanted a smaller print I’d go with the Minister’s Bible because of the darker font. I’m not sure which I’d choose between them because they’re so different (plain text vs section headings). I like the paper in the Thomas Nelson better than the CBP.

    Thank you Randy, I was looking online for a comparison between the three together but didn’t have much success, do you have a video out on them compared to each other at all? I guess either way I can’t go wrong
