Welcome to the Library!

Welcome!

This website is a library website to read and download free online Christian books for Bible Study. I am a missionary and Pastor in Mexico City, Mexico since 1986, and I use these works for my own study and sermon preparation, and I am making these works available for the general public.

I would like to just give you a “heads up” on this website. I format public domain books for the free Bible program, “theWord“, and the works I am placing here for the most part are available as downloads on my theWord Module Library-Depository site, www.twmodules.com. Some pages (“books”) on bibleresourcelibrary.com are being built by my own studies, and so they won’t get posted on twmodules.com until they are in a more “formal” stage. Also, at this point in my life, I do not have time to copy over every book on twmodules.com on this present site, so I am selectively putting the ones that for my own studies are more beneficial. I am a pastor and missionary, and the things I preach on in my church are the things that I want on this site, basically background books on these themes.

My preference is doctrinally oriented stuff that has a lot of Scripture notations. This is the “type” of book that I like. Sometimes some devotional books also interest me. Although I have my own beliefs, I post what I am studying and looking at, even though the author or his doctrinal position or his affiliations are not what I believe in personally. I have even some Catholic works on my websites, and that is because I feel (1) sometimes people from other philosophical framesets have sometime interesting to add to a topic, and their thoughts (right or wrong) provoke me to mediate even deeper on my own views. (2) Many times in these things, you cannot correctly and expertly analyze an erroneous position without going to direct sources, so I have those type of works also on my website.

So some works just will not show up here. If you have requests, you can send them to me at davidcox (at) davidcox.com (dot) mx. Exchange the (at) for @ and the (dot) for a period in that email address (no spaces within the email address.

There is a RSS feed available if you know how to use that. Continue reading

North – Unholy Spirits

Unholy Spirits

Occultism and the New Age Humanism

By Gary North

This is a work about the occult, demons, and New Age Humanism.

Everywhere you turn these days, talk of crystals, channeling, astral projection, mediums, psychic phenomena, pyramid power, and reincarnation abounds. The New Age rage is upon us.
Should this give us cause for alarm? Are New Age enthusiast a serious threat to Western civilization and orthodox Christianity? Or are they little more than “kooks laughingly to be dismissed? Is all the attention they’ve garnered in recent months simply a passing fad? Continue reading

Idx: Genesis Commentaries

Works on Genesis, especially commentaries.

Recommended Commentaries

G_Wenham.jpg1. Gordon J. Wenham — Genesis 1-15 and Genesis 16-50 (Word Biblical Commentary, 1987, 1994). from lionger

The layout of the Word Biblical Commentary series is not the most reader friendly, but in the case of Gordon Wenham’s commentary on Genesis, it is certainly worth the trouble. Wenham writes from a generally conservative evangelical viewpoint. His exegesis is careful and detailed and always worth consulting.

Mathews.jpg2. Kenneth A. Mathews — Genesis 1-11:26 and Genesis 11:27-50:26 (The New American Commentary, 1996, 2005). from lionger

In recent years, Broadman & Holman have published a number of excellent commentaries in their New American Commentary series. In 2005, with the publication of the second volume of Kenneth Mathews’ commentary on Genesis, they added another outstanding contribution.

Hamilton.jpg

3. Victor P. Hamilton — The Book of Genesis Chapters 1-17 and The Book of Genesis Chapters 18-50 (The New International Commentary on the Old Testament, 1990, 1995). from lionger

Like Wenham and Mathews, Hamilton writes from a generally conservative evangelical perspective. I rank Mathews slightly higher simply because Hamilton is a rather dry read. He is, however, always worth consulting.

Ross.jpg

4. Allen P. Ross — Creation and Blessing (1988). from lionger

Although not technically a commentary, this volume by Ross is an invaluable resource for expositors. If you are a pastor, you should not be without this book.

Walton.jpg5. John H. Walton — Genesis (NIV Application Commentary, 2001) from lionger

It is difficult to decide what commentary should fill the number five slot, but in terms of general helpfulness, Walton’s commentary probably deserves it. The NIVAC series does not get into as many technical issues, but it excels in terms of bridging the gap between the original audience and the contemporary world. This commentary, then, will be of particular use to preachers and teachers.

Runners Up:

There are a number of other helpful commentaries on the the Book of Genesis. Among them are those by Bruce Waltke, Derek Kidner, Nahum Sarna, John E. Hartley, and Umberto Cassuto (Vol. 1, Vol. 2. Cassuto’s works are sometimes difficult to track down. The publisher’s website is here: (Vol. 1, Vol. 2). Sarna’s work is in the JPS Torah Commentary series, which is written from a Jewish perspective and is somewhat critical. This means that it must be used with great care and discernment.

Warfield – Formation of the Canon of the NT

The Formation Of The Canon Of The New Testament

by Benjiman B. Warfield
Biblical Canon; canonization of the bible; the canon of scripture 

B. B. Warfield (1851-1921) was the last great theologian of the conservative Presbyterians at Princeton Theological Seminary. His activity as a theologian coincided with the period when higher-critical views of Scripture and evolutionary conceptions of religion were replacing evangelical convictions in most of America’s major institutions of higher learning. Warfield distinguished himself as a scholarly defender of Augustinian Calvinism, supernatural Christianity, and the inspiration of the Bible. The following article was originally published in 1892 (the year of C. H. Spurgeon’s death) by the American Sunday School Union, Philadelphia, PA. It now appears in his collected writings in the volume The Inspiration And Authority Of The Bible, published by The Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company: Philadelphia.
