A place of writing and reflection…
As a Bible college student, you learn quickly what it means to “research“—particularly after you’ve been out of high school for about six years. It’s like learning to go back to school again; develop heathy study habits and trying not to procrastinate. Thus, I have added a pager for all of us—students or not of various useful Bible study tools. These are free to use unless otherwise stated on their website.
Biblos, the Greek word for book and the first word of the New Testament, is a root of “Bible” in English and many other languages, including “Bibel” in German and “Biblia” in Latin and Spanish. Biblos.com is a production of the Online Parallel Bible Project. This project is privately owned and supported for the express purpose of sharing Bible study tools online.

Everystudent.com promotes itself as “a safe place to ask questions about life and what it might be like to know God“.
