Book Stands, Bible Study, and Back Strain

Book stands have revolutionized my lesson preparation time. And whether you’re a pastor or a seminary student, I’m betting they can do the same for you. I discovered book stands a few years back while teaching through the book of Romans. I bought three portable wire book stands and I have been using them ever since. They have been so beneficial, especially in the commentary phase of...
