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 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.
