The brand-new Moody Bible Commentary is a dazzling achievement.
Here are the resources I used in preparing my series on Joseph.
A few months ago I received a copy of a brand-new survey of the New Testament called Frameworks by Eric Larson. The truest thing I can say is that it is not what I expected. In my mind when I say the words “New Testament Survey,” my mind goes immediately to the huge, thick tomes that were required reading in seminary. Because those book...
This week we added two new sermon libraries to our Recommended Resources page.The first is called Discipleship Library that I believe has been compiled by the Navigators. It contains a fantastic assortment of messages preached over the last 60 years by many of the greatest Bible teachers. As they point out, Messages presented by many outstandi...
First of all, buy an iPad.That’s not what this blog entry is all about, but go ahead and do it. The method of Bible listening I’m going to recommend works best with a smartphone or an iPad.Last January I started using two iPad apps in my daily Quiet Time. I use YouVersion for my Bible reading and Bible.Is for my Bible listening. I start...
Lately Marlene and I have started a new adventure in daily Bible listening. That’s right. Daily Bible listening.For a long time if you wanted to listen to the Bible, you had to buy a big set of CDs or DVDs. With the advent of smartphone apps, you can now listen to the whole Bible, read alone or read dramatically with music in the background.&...
I am pleased to announce that LibriVox has just released the first-ever audio version of J. C. Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on Matthew. LibriVox makes free recordings of books in the public domain. In this particular case, the Ryle recordings were made by KBM board member MaryAnn Spiegel. Readers of this blog know that I am big fan of J. C...
For many years I’ve turned to J. C. Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on the Gospels when I wanted to study a text from the gospels. Ryle, an evangelical Anglican who served in the late 1800s in Great Britain, had an uncanny ability to get to the heart of each passage. More than that, he knew how to find the “preachable truths&...
Word of Life Florida Hudson, Florida I’m writing this note, hurriedly, with about 30 minutes left before it’s time to leave for the airport. In a few minutes Stu Page will pick me up and I’ll start my journey home.Earlier today I gave my final two lectures on James to the 170 students at Word of Life Bible Institute, Florida c...
For the last several weeks I’ve been immersed in the little book of James in preparation for teaching it next week at Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida. It’s been a new adventure for me since I last taught the book on Wednesday nights in the Pastor’s Class that met in the Dining Room at Calvary Memorial Church in Oak Pa...
The Internet offers a vast array of websites for those wanting to study the Bible. You can find everything from devotional studies to outlines to sermons to Greek and Hebrew exegesis. Thousands of public domain Bible commentaries are now available. There is so much available that nowadays I do most of my Bible study online. Years ago I would stack ...
Derek Taylor, the KBM webmaster, has just installed a program on our website that turns all Scripture references into hyperlinks with a “hover” window that contains the complete verse.Simply put your cursor over any Bible reference (it also puts them in bold) and watch what happens! Try it out in the paragraph below.Lately I’ve be...
We have made a new addition to our Recommended Resources page. For the last few years Paul Apple has been putting together a series of excellent preaching outlines covering many different books of the Bible on a website called BibleOutlines.com. This is a great gift to the busy pastor who enjoys preaching through books of the Bible. Basically you d...
I hope you’ll take a good look at this photo because these are your Christian leaders of tomorrow. I know because I’ve spent this week with them at Word of Life Bible Institute in Hudson, Florida. For ten hours this week I’ve been teaching them the Book of Daniel. And I must say they are a studious bunch. We meet each day in the G...
15. ESV Study BibleNovember 2, 2009
For over a decade I’ve been collecting a variety of study Bibles to use in sermon preparation. I can’t say that I’ve got every study Bible on the market because so many new ones come out every year. But I have used (and enjoyed) the NIV Study Bible, the Ryrie Study Bible, the MacArthur Study Bible, the Life Application Bible, the …
Last Wednesday we interviewed Dr. Warren Wiersbe about the brand-new Transformation Study Bible, which features notes based on his lifetime study of the Word of God. When we asked me how this study Bible fits in a very crowded market, he told us that while many study Bibles offer excellent information on names, dates, places, and details on biblica...
We have just added a new listing to our page of Recommended Resources. Check out the website called Free Bible Commentary, featuring written, audio and video resources by Dr. Bob Utley. Here is the description from his website:We are a non-profit Bible study ministry dedicated to reaching the world for Christ. Our goal is to empower God’s peo…
Have you checked out our Recommended Resources lately? We continue to add to it as a way of keeping you connected with a wide spectrum of biblically-related thought. We have sections on “Sermons,” “Christian News,” “The Church Around the World,” and an excellent collection of “Bible Study Resources.” …
A few months ago we opened a no-frills section of the website called Recommended Resources. I call it no-frills because there are no pictures or other fancy designs. If you click on the link, you will see what I mean. We have gathered on one page some of our favorite online resources. We start with a section called Bible Study Resources for those p...
During our get-organized campaign that started last week, Marlene uncovered this pin that we gave away in 2002 when the whole congregation took the challenge to “get on the Bible bus” and read the Bible all the way through. Every Sunday that year I began my sermon with the same question, “So how are you doing?” After the fir...

**We just sent out the final sermon in the three-part series from Psalm 103. Although it went out to over 5200 people, we have no idea how many will actually receive it because we continue to have problems getting it to the Inbox of all those people. AOL has been blocking the sermons for the last month. We are cautiously hopeful that we have a work...
This week we have added a brand-new Resources section to the Keep Believing website. Right now it’s pretty plain vanilla and it’s buried at the bottom of the page, next to the buttons for “Contact Us,” “About Us” and “Donate.” I think we’ll eventually move it up higher so people can find it easi...
I recently ran across a website that I highly recommend to all Bible students, especially to pastors and other Bible teaches. Best Commentaries does exactly what its name implies. It is a website devoted solely to ranking the best commentaries on every book of the Bible. The website is both thorough and up-to-date. The website develops its own rank…
Here’s a page where you can find the entire Bible at your fingertips on one page. (HT to Peter Faulkner).…
*Yesterday my new laptop computer arrived. It’s a Micro Express IFL 9025 that got a good review on the PC World website. It’s amazing how far the technology has come since I bought my last laptop 20 months ago. *One thing you forget is how long it takes to set up a new computer. I’ve spent hours last night and today transferr...
