PRINTABLE BIBLE, LOOSE-LEAF BIBLE
Have you ever needed a Bible that you can enter lots of Study Notes in? You can download a Free Printable Bible, Loose Leaf Bible.
Usually, a Wide Margin Bible doesn’t have enough space to make the kind of notes a serious Bible Study needs. I recently bought a Journaling Bible and found out that it was much better than a Wide Margin Bible, but it still falls short of the space needed to make study notes.
That’s Why I made these files containing each Book of the Bible. There are many advantages of doing it this way:
- Pages can be reprinted if mistakes are made.
- Notes can be typed on separate paper and inserted between pages.
- If your handwriting isn’t that great you can hand write notes on one edition, then re-type the notes and then re-print the Bible page by page.
I got the Idea of formatting the text this way from a new Bible that has recently been printed by SCHUYLER, called the Canterbury King James Bible. Although there are some similarities, I do not pretend that this is the same as theirs, only similar. I wanted a Bible text that was better than just plain text that could be used to make a Printed Bible that looks good and is easy to read as well as being a useful study tool.
The Idea of Printable Bible:
- Print the pages single sided 8.5 X 11 letter sized copy or printer paper. (modify to A4 if you want)
- Print each Book Separately so that you can study with smaller Books.
- Bind them in a notebook using a 3 hole punch or another binding method (glued binding).
- Write notes on the back side of the previous page, See example below.
- Add more blank pages if you have more notes than one page can hold.
The Text in the files below is originally from the King James, Pure Cambridge Edition, from Bible Protector Web Site. There has been nothing added or subtracted to the Text, except for:
- Pericopes (Subject Headings)
- Text Formatting (paragraph spacing and line spacing, font size and style, etc…)
- Drop Caps (the first letter of each Chapter enlarged)
- Title Page (cover Page)
- Introduction to Book
- An Active Table of Contents (link to jump to Pericopes, and Chapters)

- Alternatively, You can also add text below each verse, or as footnotes, with a word processor.
These Files were created in Microsoft Word 2013, and 2016, but should be readable by older versions of Microsoft Word, and by Libre Office Writer (a free Office Suite that reads and prints Microsoft Office files.) also. With very little effort, they can be customized by anyone.
You can modify it to make it:
- Single Column
- Wide Margin
- Other paper sizes (Letter is standard, A4, A3, A5, Legal, etc…)
- You can print on both sides of the paper if you wish.
- Add Pictures or Icons, or other colors
- You can modify it to make a kid’s Bible by adding pictures.

I have added both Microsoft Word files and PDF files. If you don’t have a Word Processor you can download LibreOffice for free, and Edit the files with LibreOffice Writer.
It takes a lot of time to make these files in a printable form so all the files are not finished now but will be added to the downloadable list below, as soon as I complete each Book.
Note: You will need the “Goudy Initialen” Drop Caps Font described in the Blog article to see the Original Drop Caps if you do not have that font the Drop Caps will be the normal font enlarged.
