Resources & Reviews

MP3’s, PDF’s, Articles, and Upcoming Reviews for your listening/viewing pleasure.

Podcasts:

  • Beyond Reading the Bible is dedicated to teaching its listeners on how to read the Bible. They discuss Biblical concepts, theological themes, literary features and techniques, and they give provide examples from all across the Bible. 
  • Help Me Teach the Bible – Nancy Guthrie talks to some of the best Bible teachers and preachers of our day in hopes of equipping anyone who seeks to open up the Bible and teach to rightly, effectively, and creatively teach through specific books of the Bible. Guthrie’s goal is to get to the bigger themes and emphasis in the book that will ground us and guide us in our preparation as teachers while weeding out common misunderstandings or misapplications of the book.
  • Mere Fidelity is a group of young Christians who have spent the past eight years working out what their faith looks like in public. Whether it’s the arts, movies, literature, politics, sexuality, or “any other crevice of the human experience,” they believe that the Gospel has something to say about it and that “something” really can be good news.
  • Mortification of Spin is a ‘casual’ conversation about things that count. Trueman, Pruitt, and Byrd engage in thought-provoking conversations on the challenges the Church faces and what counts in the Christian life. Throw in some germane cultural references and British accents and you’ll find yourself a good podcast.
  • Naked Bible Podcast, hosted by Trey Stricklin, Michael Heiser does his best to teach his listeners about biblical concepts from the mindset of an OT and NT Israelite.
  • Reformed Theological Seminary
  • The Bible Project – The team works to provide a colorful summary of each and every book of the Bible so that we can understand the main ideas of each book through short, hand-drawn videos.
  • Unbelievable engages in fundamental questions on Christianity with the intention to openly discuss different opinions between Christians and non-believers.
  • Westminster Theological Seminary

Helpful Links

  • Best Commentaries ranks all biblical commentaries, systematic works, works of theologies and biblical theologies, books on the Christian and ministerial life, and looks forward to upcoming commentaries.
  • Bible.org
  • Biblearc helps you see the flow of thought in a biblical passage. Very helpful for teachers (whether pastors, professors, or Bible study leaders) to organize their thoughts and to not get lost in their notes.
  • Biblegateway
  • Biblical Training contains a host of free downloadable classes (many being complete with handouts/PDFs) taught by top scholars (e.g., Greg Beale, John Piper, Tom Schreiner, Bruce Ware, Darrell Bock, Craig Blomberg, Doug Moo, etc). Did I mention it’s free?

    Hi James,

    Great blog. Thanks for your review of Representing Christ. Have you seen biblical training.org. If not, it looks like the kind of resource you would appreciate.

    • Hi Hank,

      Yes, I have seen it and have used it a bit, but it hasn’t crossed my mind to even put it on here. Thanks for the reminder and for your book. I look forward to more from you in the future.
