Bible Markers: Staedtler Dry Highlighters

If you received a new Bible for Christmas, you might be interested in picking up some marking tools that are well-suited to thin Bible paper. A couple of people people have mentioned wanting a pen that would work well with NLT Study Bible pages. I have several types of Bible markers that I’ll be reviewing over the next week to help you make an informed decision. (n.b.: Tyndale doesn’t sell these or any Bible markers, so I’m a neutral reviewer)

4 dry highlighters in yellow, green, pink, and blue.
Pencil sharpener

Aids Understanding
There are four colors, which feels like a good amount to me, as a personal preference. It’s useful that dry highlighters can highlight in addition to underlining and writing. It’s a little light, so I have to search just a part of a second more to find all of the marks I’ve made, especially in the yellow. I don’t like how pastel these highlighters makes the Bible page look.

I could faintly see the marks from the reverse page, but there was no bleed-through. The pink was the most visible. Photo: reverse side of page

Ease of Use
They write pretty easily. Require sharpening, though a pencil sharpener is included with the set. It pulled at the pages a bit—made a slight wrinkle under some of the marks I made. The pencil format is inherently a little slower to use than a pen with faster-flowing ink. Photo: wrinkles created by pencil, on reverse side of page

Wow what a great review of these fine bible marking pencils. I saw on another website about bible highlighters that Staedtler makes great fine tipped pens also for writing in the margin. Great post

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between Blog Engine/Word press/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different than most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
