Bible Study – Quick Verse 8, Expanded Edition

Note: This was originally posted on my personal blog in December, 2005.

I’m trying to build up my collection of books on bible study.

Ever have a day of your life that you wish you could live over again? I do. Years ago, I gave away my complete collection of bibles, study bibles, bible commentaries, etc. I must have had 50 books total. I guess the devil won that day. Unfortunately, on that same day, I got rid of many things I owned. I literally threw away decades of my life and possessions that day. Tons of horror books and magazines, my complete hockey puck collection, plus other items were either tossed or given away.

I was cleaning out my home and for some reason, didn’t want to bring over everything I owned to my new home. I should have listened to Nora. She wanted to help me that day and would have never allowed me to do what I did. Seems like I make many mistakes when I don’t listen to her.

To this day, I have decades of my life that are a blur. I haven’t started to put together another hockey puck collection. Probably never will. I was able to rebuild my horror book, horror magazine, books on writing, etc, collection. I now have more that I had before.

My bible collection was wiped out with the exception of one NIV study bible and the two volume NIV Commentary set. For some reason, they must have been packed in a box I didn’t open before I moved.

About a month ago, I started to get my bible study books collection together. Through Ebay and a few other used book sellers, I have ordered a rather nice collection. I also ordered many books through ChristianBook.com. They have really good prices. Many have arrived and will be Christmas presents from Nora to me.

I also had a nice set of audio tapes on various subjects by different pastors – Dr. Frederick K. C. Price, John Hagee, Charles Stanley, Dr. David Jeremiah, Chuck Swindoll, Tony Evans, etc. These are the pastors I enjoy hearing the most. My favorite is Charles Stanley. I will take quite a bit of time to rebuild this collection, and sadly, many of the older audio tapes, are no longer available.

I have also updated my Quick Verse bible software. My version was twelve years old. I settled upon Quick Verse 8.0 Expanded Edition. I was able to pick this up off Ebay for $40. Quick Verse is a great software package. QV 8 is not the most current version available. Newer, much more expensive versions are available; however, for my use, QV 8 is perfect.
