As I got to thinking about the wealth of tools that we have as believers in our modern technilogical age I decided to put together a list of valuable resources that I use when I am studying the WORD and looking for applications to help me in the process of my studies. Of course the Bible is still, and will always be the best resource in the life of the believer, here are a few tools that I have found to be quite helpful. As time permits I will add more.
If you have some suggested resources please feel free to share by sending me an email through my contact form.
Blue Letter Bible– This is a fantastic online Bible with all sorts of features including Strongs Concordance, Commentaries and and a whole host of Bible tools to help the student of God’s WORD grow in their walks.
Got Questions?– This amazing site allows the user to type in their question about the Bible or just about any topic and pull from a wealth of articles that are well written and theologically sound in their presentation. A great tool to get a broad overview of a particular topic.
Bible Study Tools – This awesome resource contains a WORD for the day, Bible studies, commentaries and a whole host of useful information for studying God’s WORD.
One Place– One Place is a great repository for Christian sermons from several renowned pastors and teachers. It is a free online radio station where you can listen to Christian radio broadcasts and grow deeper in the understanding of the LORD. You can also browse through their topical library of articles for information about various things pertinent to the Christian walk.
Whit’s End– While this resource is primarily for the young in age, it is merriment for the young at heart.¬†Adventures In Odyssey is a radio ministry put on by Focus on the Family and airs radio dramas about a town called Odyssey. You will fall in love with the characters as they experience many exciting adventures which are centered around godly living.
Calvary Distribution– Calvary Distribution is a great source for books and other Christian resources that have undergone a great deal of scrutiny for the purpose of ensuring that they are doctrinally sound and useful to the body. There are so many valuable resources here at very reasonable prices.
Church Locator– While there is no church that will fit everybody all of the time, we highly recommend Calvary Chapel since you can find one just about any major area you go, on every continent in the world. Because Calvary holds to a certain set of core beliefs (Distinctives), you can count on a fairly consistent experience at every Calvary. If you need to recommend a church to a friend, this might be the tool for you.
Compelling Truth-¬†Much like got questions.org this website is chalked full of “Q&A” type devotional materials to help believers understand the answers to questions regarding the faith. It is a useful tool for a number of topical issues that the believer faces in real day-to-day life. Definitely a useful tool for the Distinctive Discipleship Tool Box.
CrossWalk–¬†Crosswalk.com aims to offer the most compelling biblically-based content to Christians on their walk with¬†Jesus. Crosswalk.com is your online destination for all areas of¬†Christian¬†Living ‚Äď faith, family, fun, and community. Each category is further divided into areas important to you and your Christian faith including¬†Bible study,¬†daily devotions,¬†marriage,¬†parenting,¬†movie reviews, music, news, and more.
