1) How old is your Bible? Almost 9 years old; Wes gave it to me for my birthday in 2000.
2) Why did you choose this Bible? I wanted a wide-margin Bible so I could take sermon notes in it, and I wanted one with no notes or cross-references so I could make my own. I've used either a Zondervan or an Old Scofield for all my teen and adult life, and I would always get distracted reading the footnotes instead of the actual Bible text.
3) Do you hightlight/mark passages? I underline and circle things rather than highlight them.
4) If so what is your system? I simply underline things that speak to my heart. I will often cross-reference to another verse that is similar or carrying out a certain theme. I like to underline individual words and mark their meaning in the margin next to the verse so that the next time I'm reading there, I can remember what certain words mean.
5) Do you have notebooks to record things? Yes
6) If so how many and what do you record? I use one spiral-bound journal notebook at a time in which I record verses that speak to me during my devotions. It's nothing earth-shattering, just things that speak to me at the time. I have quite a few of these now; I've used this method for years. I've tried those books that ask questions to help you interpret the Scripture, but I always go back to my good old journal! I like spiral-bound ones that are pretty! :)
7) Where is your favourite spot to read your Bible? In my big chair beside the fireplace.
8) Any thing special about your Bible you want to share? This is kind of funny. My dad picked up my Bible once when we were visiting and said it was a good preaching Bible! LOL He said it has a good hand to it: it's oversized and kind of drapes just right to hold it while you're preaching. I thought it was funny that the Bible I chose is one that a preacher would like to preach from! :) Other than that, the most special thing about it is that Wes bought it for me. Well, other than it being God's own letter to me, of course! ;)
Scripture is the most up-to-date and relevant reading that ever comes my way.
