I’m a software junkie and I’ve been fooling around with some different programs for blogging. Yesterday I pressed the wrong button and posted what I had planned to post today. So I thought I’d post about some free stuff that comes my way and might not be familiar to you.
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has some excellent resources. You can subscribe to their newsletter (which contains most if not all of these). I found some good articles on preaching, and with Al Mohler at the helm of the school, you can count on some superb analysis of contemporary culture and issues.
Years ago, we did not have access to many Study Bibles. I remember the Scofield Reference Bible, which featured notes from a Dispensational perspective, and the Thompson Chain Reference Bible. In our day, we are blessed with many helpful Study Bibles. While I have Logos Bible Software and Accordance on my computers, I have been using Olive Tree Software on my iPad and phone. Some modules cost, though they have periodic sales. But if you want something free, the study notes from the MacArthur Study Bible are available for free for both IOS and Android. You can swap between the King James Version (KJV), the New American Standard Bible (NASB), and the English Standard Version (ESV).
I used to live about 10 minutes from Westminster Theological Seminary in Glenside, PA. When they had an on-campus bookstore, I visited regularly to see what was new. Today they are a web-only enterprise, but if you log on to their site and sign up for the free newsletter, you’ll get info about new books, special deals, and other sale items. The link to sign up is at the bottom of the page.
If you’re doing some research – or just want to keep up with current theological trends, this site takes you to the home of Themelios, the journal of the Gospel Coalition. You can search hundreds of articles from the beginning of the journal’s publication. The journal contains book reviews as well. I find it helpful.
Another excellent online journal is Credo Magazine. You’ll find up-to-date podcasts and articles and an opportunity to have the latest issue sent to your email. A form to subscribe (for free) is on the above page.
Maybe there’s something new here for you. I’ll post articles like this from time to time. Do you have any favorite free resources?
