Bible Links My Personal Favorites
New Englishman's Greek English Concordance - Paperback by Wigram and Green. A concordance is a Bible student's best friend. This one allows an English speaking person to find all occurrences of the original Greek word in the New Testament, even though it may be translated by different English words, and even though the same English word may translate several Greek words. In other words, it compares apples with apples and oranges with oranges. Later you can get a commentary, but where does a commentary get it's interpretation? It gets it (in addition to the context, of course) from tracing words in a concordance like this. This concordance remains your first and primary tool.
Institute for Creation Research - A Christ-Focused Creation Ministry. A refreshing blend of deep research and original ideas. I recommend the "Scripture" link for witnessing tools that are well-written and well-rounded.
Focus on the Family - with Dr. James Dobson. Focus on the Family offers practical helps for your marriage and parenting role. Recent magazine articles, letters from Dr. James Dobson, news, RealAudio broadcasts and much more. Earthly marriage is intended to be a taste of our heavenly marriage to Christ. To help achieve this goal, James Dobson offers down-to-earth tips.
Crown Financial Ministries - Teaching People God's Financial Principles. Facing personal finances can be scary, but the late Larry Burkett offers a non-threatening approach. I also appreciate how he balances practical planning with trusting God. One of the many resources is The Complete Financial Guide for Young Couples.
Thru The Bible - with Dr. J. Vernon McGee. Thru The Bible is a 30-minute radio program that takes the listener through the entire Bible in just 5 years, going back and forth between the Old and New Testaments. Notes and outlines designed to aid the listener in this study are available without cost. Dr. McGee has a common sense way of explaining the Bible. He's in heaven now, and listening to his old broadcasts makes me feel closer to heaven.
Institute in Basic Life Principles - Seminar Schedule. Founded by Bill Gothard, the Institute in Basic Life Principles is a Biblically based, not-for-profit, nonsectarian training and service organization dedicated to serving families, youth, and leaders worldwide, through instruction in Biblical principles that bring true success in life. When I attended a seminar many years ago, hearing the Biblical principles explained was a taste of heaven on earth.
Got Questions? - The Bible Has the Answers. Thousands of Bible questions answered. Well balanced, solidly Scriptural. It's like going back to Bible school.
