Build Your Bible Study Reference Library

If you are just now starting to build your library to better help you study and interpret the Bible, here are the tools that I most often recommend (and use). You can find links to these resources in the sidebar:

The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia. This five volume set is the place to go if you want background on a certain book of the Bible, insight into ancient customs and manners, or clarification of names, places, countries, authors, circumstances, etc. Fantastic resource.

 

 

 

The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament. Are you tired of looking up a word in the Greek only find a two or three word definition that tells you little more than you already assumed. Do you want to know how Mike Fontenot gains such insight into the original language? This is the place. The "TDNT" is a 10 volume set, but you would do well to find a 1 volume abridgment as it will contain all the more important terms for which you are looking. 

 

 

New Daily Study Bible. This complete set of commentaries from William Barclay is both insightful and fun to read. His insights into first century customs, occupations, geography, and thinking should prove more useful than the offerings of one volume commentaries. While Barclay does not always cite his sources, this 17 volume set is both practical and affordable.
