How is this Bible different?

Your Personalized Bible series of Bibles has your name personalized into the text in over 5,000 places in the New Testament with Psalms & Proverbs, 7,000 places in the complete Old and New Testaments. Personalizations include: first name, last name and spouse’s name (if married).

What Bibles are available in this series?

Your Personalized Bible series is available in a quality bonded leather edition. Each Bible is available for the married man, the unmarried man, the married woman and the unmarried woman. In addition each one is available in either the World English Bible translation or the King James Version. With over 7,000 personalizations that include first name, last name and spouse’s name (if married), every Your Personalized Bible is so unique that it is a new member of Your Personalized Bible series.

Also included in Your Personalized Bible series is Your Personalized Prayer Bible which gives the same personalizations as the New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs but with blanks for the name so you can write or read in any name you choose. Because it is mass produced, we can offer this product at a lower price and faster delivery. Your Personalized Bible is also available in electronic versions for iPhone/iPad, Android and Windows.

Does my last name have to be in the Bible?

No, since each Bible is printed individually, it can be customized any way you want. The last name is only used in approximately 50 places, primarily the title page, and book titles, e.g. “The Good News for Linda Jones According to Matthew”. We can even put one name on the cover (e.g. Patricia) and another in the text (e.g. Pat). Special titles (e.g. Pastor, Dr.) are easily included.

What version is Your Personalized Bible?

It is the World English translation which is a modernized version of the American Standard, which is well known for it’s accuracy in translating the original texts. It is also available in the original King James (1611 Authorized Version).

What about New King James, NIV, The Message, etc.?

Copyright permissions prevent us from offering Your Personalized Bible in those translations.

Are Jesus' words in red?

No, but they are italicized so they are distinguishable from the rest of the text.

If I'm not sure, is there some way I can show it to my spouse or friend?

Yes, you can go to the free sample verses page to print the free personalized “Identity in Christ” Scriptures where the scriptures appear as they are in Your Personalized Bible. You can also get a personalized 9 Favorite Chapters for free by signing up on any page of our website.

Can I get Your Personalized Bible in Spanish?

Sorry, no. We do make available the “Identity in Christ” Scriptures in Spanish for free. Click here for the “Free Samples” page. The web site also includes “Identity in Christ” in German, French, Dutch and Swedish.

Can I get a couple Bible?

Your Personalized Bible currently includes the spouse’s name approximately 150 times in appropriate passages like Ephesians 5:22-33; Colossians 3:18-19; Proverbs 31:10-31, Psalms 128 and several others. Song of Songs (Song of Solomon) is also included in Bibles for married individuals. We have studied making a couple Bible and concluded it does not flow well with the personalizations.

Is the Bible text changed in any way?

The only “changes” to the text are to put your name in the places where Scripture uses pronouns like: you, us, we, etc. or similar locations and grammatical changes so the name reads correctly.

How can I tell what part of the text has been changed?

Anywhere changes occur in the text, including your name, he/she, brother/sister, etc., they are in bold italicized print. Minor grammatical changes are not highlighted.

What about Rev. 22:18: Isn't this adding to the scriptures?

Scripture tells us in Rev. 22:18: “If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book.” (NKJ). Your Personalized Bible does not add to the scriptures but rather clarifies the meaning of the scriptures much the same way that the Amplified Bible clarifies the meaning of the text.
