The Resource Guide is the most powerful feature in the Olive Tree Bible App. As you read your Bible in the main window, the Resource Guide follows along and displays relevant Bible study information from your study notes, commentaries, maps and more.
Gain knowledge on any passage of the Bible, exactly when you need it. The Resource Guide will let you know when information in this title is relevant to anything in the main window. It will also track along with you as you read through the Bible.
Quickly see all the verses relevant to the current verse you're reading. Tap on the cross reference, a pop-up window will appear, and then you can quickly navigate to the corresponding verse - without ever leaving the passage you're reading.
This is so much more than a traditional dictionary. While you're reading the Bible, the Resource Guide will pull up articles from this dictionary. You can also select words in the text and tap "Look Up" to access relevant information in a pop-up window.
Quickly find information about a book of the Bible, its author, date, audience, purpose, and other topics. If you have an introduction to the book of the Bible you're currently reading, the Resource Guide will make it easily accessible for you.
Did your resource mention a passage of Scripture, but you can't remember what the verse says? Never fear! Tap the linked verse and a pop-up window will appear, giving you quick and easy access to the verse in context.
We all face difficulty in life. The death of a loved one, financial problems, divorce, health issues, job loss... the list can go on and on. In the midst of these difficult seasons of life there is hope. The CSB Life Restoration Bible features relevant and applicable notes. It helps focus on life restoration in an easy-to-follow format so individuals can find hope and joy as they embrace the truths and promises found in God’s Word during difficult seasons of life.
The key helps in this Bible include over 500 guided notes following seven Life Restoration Principles via the easy-to-remember R.E.S.T.O.R.E acrostic (Rest and Reflect–Eternal Perspective–Support–Thanksgiving and Contentment–Other-centeredness–Relationships–Exercise of Faith). Each note is based on a key verse in God’s Word related to a specific Life Restoration Principle followed by a short devotional to help expound upon the principle before guiding the reader to the “Next Step” in the restoration journey.
Other features include:
A “First 30-Days” devotional, book introductions that highlight “Restoration Themes” in each book
Restoration profiles of biblical characters and real people
Articles featuring scripture references highlighting specific biblical themes related to restoration

"Isaiah 40:8 says that the grass withers and flowers fade but the Word of God remains forever. Hebrews 4:12 states that God’s Word is “living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” God’s Word is powerful like nothing else on this earth, and it is at all times right at our fingertips. In all of my struggles, I have never found it lacking in what I needed as long as I was willing to do what it instructed me to do. Sadly, just reading Scripture in older translations with little to help me fully understand it made it difficult to determine the real meaning or the “true truth” as I call it. I needed help in knowing what God intended each passage to mean for me and the struggle I was facing. The CSB Restoration Bible is designed to make the path and process that God intends for you easy to find and follow. It can become your most valuable tool in doing the work that is needed to restore what is broken or shore up what needs to be strengthened. — Stephen Arterburn, from the preface to the CSB Restoration Bible.
