Biblical Studies Bibliographies

In this section of my blog, I have put together short bibliographies in order to assist seminary students, undergrad students and pastors with research in the Old and New Testament. These bibliographies have two main goals:

  1. To introduce students to valuable resources which may not be highlighted elsewhere
  2. To introduce clergy and/or laymen to valuable resources outside of their “go-to” commentaries

These bibliographies are by no means complete nor do they pretend to be all-encompassing. They are simply an introduction to various academic discussions and sources with which it is necessary to interact during research for a research paper or sermon.

If you have any advice for the current bibliographies (e.g., additions or deletions) or a topic you’d like to see covered here, please feel free to contact me below.
