An Advanced Biblical Library for Teachers and Students

Bible Study Tools Part 8

Bible Study Tools: Part 8

The task of the Bible teacher is to communicate the Scriptures in a way that sheds light on God and our relationship with him. Atlases, geography books, and language textbooks help (see part 6), but the heart of a library are the commentaries.

My recommendations are listed in order of their helpfulness, so if you can only afford one commentary on a particular book, consider my #1. But I encourage you to take the time to carefully check out samples of all the suggested books before making your purchase. Most high quality resources are expensive, so it’s better to acquire books that won’t need to be replaced later. Many can be previewed online at Amazon, Google, etc.

One caveat: many books are wonderful as e-books, but NOT commentaries. Like other reference books, their information is more easily accessed via hardcovers. One exception: there are powerful software programs that merge commentaries, concordances, lexicons, and other Bible study tools with the Scriptures. I appreciate and recommend software like Logos (the gold standard) and WordSearch (I have used this for twenty years), but Bible software is pricey. Is it a good value? Yes. Especially if you teach every week or your bookshelf space is limited.

 Below is a list of recommended commentaries. Most are also available in Logos, WordSearch, Accordance, and other Bible software programs.
