For beginning and more advanced students?
How to read/interprete /study the Bible?
For a beginning student I like A Basic Guide to Interpreting the Bible by Robert Stein. For more advanced students I highly recommend Fee & Stuart's How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth.
For both Baby Christians and for Preachers with thirty years under their belt the Nave´s Topical Bible is inexpensive and essential. I have it on my computer in all three Bible study programs and I have a hard backed copy just over my head here. And for all apologists, no matter how long they have or haven´t been at it, the Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics. I paid a premium for my copy because I bought it as soon as possible ad it was only fifty US dollars.
I pray you will be blessed by both of these works and will reccommend them to others.
At least four study Bibles with different study notes. NKJV, NASB-95, ESV, and HCSB.
At least two Bible Dictionaries. I think the New Bible Dictionary is quite scholarly, if a tad liberal. So another more conservative dictionary would be useful to provide balance.
An Exhaustive Concordance for at least two of the Bible versions.
A good English dictionary to confirm your understanding of words you might not actually understand.
A book on the culture of Biblical times to help close the cultural gap. I use the "New Manners and Customs of Bible Times."
