Resources & Reviews

Here is everything I have reviewed, with categories almost in alphabetical order.

  • Theology
  • Bibles
  • Biblical Languages
  • Biblical Theology
  • Children’s Books
  • Commentaries
  • Course Lectures
  • Devotionals
  • General Reading
  • Upcoming Reviews

Many of the books listed here are great, but I’ve tried to highlight some key books.

  • I am trying to find a way for this list not to be hopelessly ugly. In the meantime, books in blue bold are those I favor most to help you better understand the Bible. I have enjoyed most of the books I have reviewed, but some are better to begin with than others.

  1. Hi James,

    Great blog. Thanks for your review of Representing Christ. Have you seen biblical training.org. If not, it looks like the kind of resource you would appreciate.

    Grace,

    1. Hi Hank,

      Yes, I have seen it and have used it a bit, but it hasn’t crossed my mind to even put it on here. Thanks for the reminder and for your book. I look forward to more from you in the future.
