Pam’s Christmas Guide

I can’t believe the Christmas shopping season is here! I get questions ALL THE TIME about Bibles, devotionals, and commentaries. Below are a few of my favorites. These are all affiliate links!


These are my top 2 Bibles that I use daily. If you know me, you know I am a HUGE ESV fan. I began using the NLT as well over a year ago.

There are so many commentaries out there. I have found the Christ-centered exposition series is an excellent daily reference. You do NOT have to have a theological degree to read and understand this series.

For those who are searching for something more in-depth, I recommend the Pillar New Testament Commentary.

This is the Bible that I have given to each of my children as they are able to read it for themselves. ChristianBook allows you to engrave the front with their name.

Logos Bible Software

It took me years before investing in Logos. It was a dream for a long time. Since purchasing, I have never looked back! It has incredible resources for those people in your life who serve in pastoral or ministerial positions, theological students, or just wanting ALL the info in one place when studying. Logos is offering some amazing deals during Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

Be sure to click the link each day as they will have new deals on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Cyber Week.
