  • Commentaries.. Look online for a commentary for whatever book of the bible you are reading.. biblegateway.com has some.. The NIV study bible is helpful too.. I know this sounds stupid, but 'The complete Idiot's guide to the Bible' isn't bad either.. You can also google 'online bible study courses'.. There are some free ones.. I'm taking one now and really enjoying it..
    Send me a message if I can help at all..

  • The best way that I have found is to find a Bible study at a local church....you can ask questions when you don't understand something, they usually start at the beginning og the Bible and work all the way through, and it's nice to have other people studying with you that you can bounce your thoughts of off.

  • I think the NIV Study Bible is excellent. The notes at the bottom of the pages are so informative and often gives the history behind the verse. A good concordance is a must. I use Strongs Exhaustive Concordance. It gives meanings of words in both Hebrew and Greek.

  • You could get a children's bible. The blood, gore and violence are down-played and the stories are told in simplistic ways. Interesting that the bible has to be "edited" by adults in order to make it palatable for little children. In my christian days, I got a living bible because it used modern language and was more understandable. You could try that.

  • I use a greek and hebrew dictionary it gives the original texts of words in the bible and make the meaning soo much better.
