Book recommendations: Bible Study
As a way to share my love of reading and learning, I am going to start giving lists of my top 10 books in different categories. In this edition, I will cover books based on Bible study. It is heavy with New Testament resources because that is my area of expertise.
If you are interested in purchasing one of more of these books, I ask that you use the links below as that will help me overcome some of the costs of the blog site. I make no money at all on this site, I do it because I love it. But your help in ordering through the links below will help me keep it up.
- How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth by Gordon Fee and Douglas Stuart. Great starting point for anyone interested in studying the Bible on a deeper level.
2. The Big Book of Bible Difficulties by Norman Geisler – This is an essential tool for answering those tough questions on sticky passages.
3. New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology: Abridged Edition – Verlyn D. Verbrugge – This is a super resource at a reasonable price for putting together theological concepts in the New Testament.
4. Zondervan Handbook to the Bible: Fifth Edition – This is a good practical handbook that covers historical and cultural contexts.
5. The New Testament in Its World: An Introduction to the History, Literature, and Theology of the First Christians N.T. Wright and Michael Bird. This is a recent release that has become an essential tool for me in Bible study.
