Dear all I am writing a small article to the Church magazine the goes out to members and visitors four times a year. The subject is: My small study library, or in Swedish “Mitt lilla studiebibliotek”. The subject is to share thoughts about books that helps me in my reading and study of the Bible. Since I live in Sweden the article will mainly about Swedish books, but thought it could be a good thread on this board on what a small study library would consist of. Below are books I like and use often Bible 1. A few Bible translations: Swedish Folkbibeln, KJV, NIV, HCSB, NASB 2. Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words 3. BJU Linked Word Project - http://www.bju.edu/bible/ To understand 1. Bible with cross-references and or Thompson Chain-Reference Bible 2. Expositor's Bible CommentaryAbridged Edition, The: Two-Volume Set 3. Bible Knowledge Commentary (from DTS) 4. Backgrund to Bible times, I have Bible Manners and Customs by Howard E. Vos To find 1. Bible with concordance (I use a Cambridge wide margin KJV or a Study Bible) 2. A web page where you can search the Bible http://www.biblegateway.com/ 3. Nave’s Topical Bible or Thompson Chain-Reference Bible Reference for doctrine 1. A book on the doctrine of your church or denomination 2. A systematic theology, I have Millard Erickson Christian Theology 3. A study Bible with a theology you feel at home with, I like the Scofield Study Bible. What would be your recommendations for a small study library for a member of a Baptist Church that likes to study the Bible. It could also be a recommendation for the library of a small church.
