NET Abide Bible

Experience life-giving, intimate communion with God. The Abide Bible is designed to help you encounter God's voice and presence in His Word using 5 powerful Scripture-engagement practices. Through these practices, you will experience the Bible like never before while at the same time being transformed more into God's image. 

NET Journal Edition Features

  • Practical Scripture-engagement prompts based on five ways of interacting deeply with the Bible:
    • Praying Scripture: pattern your prayers after biblical texts, personalizing the prayers and gaining language for the thoughts and emotions you wish to express
    • Picture It: place yourself in the biblical narrative as a bystander or participant in important events
    • Journaling: focus and reflect on Scripture and its meaning for your life, opening yourself to God's voice as you write
    • Engage Through Art: consider a classic piece of art - photography, scultpure, painting - and let it deepen your meditations on God's truth
    • Contemplate: follow the church's longstanding practice of reading, meditating on, praying, and contemplating a passage of Scripture to experience God's presence through the words of the Bible

Glenn Weaver

“I find that having people in my congregation that bring the NET Bible to church forces me to make sure I do my homework in the Bible text. Because of the large amount of notes and the complex issues addressed in the notes, I cannot become lazy. People read the NET Bible notes as we go through the Scriptures. When it comes to discussion time, they often ask questions concerning where my conclusion differs from the conclusion presented in the NET Bible notes! The end result is a preacher that is more Biblically-literate and a congregation that is more Biblically-literate.”
