You can use the HelpFinder Bible as a resource guide, a devotional Bible, or a topical tool kit, directing you to places where God’s Word can touch you, heal you, and guide you.

A lifetime of learning and adventure awaits as you search this Bible and discover how wonderfully our loving God meets your daily needs.

HelpFinder Index

This is the most important feature in this Bible. Found here at the front immediately after this user’s guide, the HelpFinder Index makes it easy to discover what the Bible says about well over a hundred life-needs topics. Each topic is listed alphabetically and dealt with thoroughly, offering a biblical summary, several questions that help put your needs into words, and a list of Bible passages to explore.

The index also tells you which Bible passages have expanded notes in the Bible text and shows you a series of Bible promises related to each topic. In all, the HelpFinder Index thoroughly covers more than one hundred life-needs topics, gives links for many other related topics, and puts thousands of connected Bible verses and application notes at your fingertips.

In-Text Features

Application Notes

Hundreds of notes are placed at appropriate places in the Bible text and offer application, insights, inspiration, and encouragement. Each note focuses on one of the topics covered in the HelpFinder Index, and quite a few topics are dealt with in several notes. The page numbers for these in-text notes are listed in the HelpFinder Index (at the front of the Bible) and in the Quick Topic Finder (at the back of the Bible).

Book Introductions

Complete Bible book introductions include the following helpful features:

  • An overview of the book, emphasizing its core message and key themes

Promises of God

Knowing God’s promises to us can deepen our faith, and the HelpFinder Bible highlights nearly two hundred of them. As you are reading, these promises draw your attention to important faith-building truths from God’s Word. These and additional Bible promise texts are identified under each topic in the HelpFinder Index and the Quick Topic Finder.
