It’s been a little longer than a week (sorry about that), but we are back with this week’s Resource Roundup.
As before, our recommendation of a resource on this blog is not intended to imply that we hold every view of the resource’s creator. They are solely the views and opinions of the author, and not of Southeast. Please be diligent in separating the “wheat” from the “chaff.”
Protecting Our Blind Side by Earl Edwards
This resource recommendation comes from Bart Warren. He says, “This is a discussion of contemporary concerns among churches of Christ by a longtime professor from Freed-Hardeman University. It is a collection of essays originally written for other publications. This is a great place to start your study of difficult issues by a trusted and beloved Bible scholar.”
Biblical Archaeology (Truth for Today Commentary Series) by Jack P. Lewis
Bob Cowles recommendas a volume which Truth for Today recently published— Biblical Archaeology, Volume 1 by Jack P. Lewis. This is the first book in a two-part study on archaeology added to their series of commentaries, which will eventually cover every book in the Bible.
Bob writes, “Jack P. Lewis is undoubtedly one of the finest scholars of our time within the churches of Christ. In this publication, Truth for Today is embarking on a study of archaeology, which will allow readers to benefit from his research and scholarship.”
Olive Tree Bible App
Tim Forlines and Steve Higginbotham both recommend the Olive Tree Bible Study app, aptly called The Bible Study App. There are many resources available (some for free), and more features than can be listed here. Tim likes the attractive user interface, and has used the “split screen” feature (Bible on one side, notes on the other) to teach from. It’s available just about every major platform (PC/Mac/Android/iOS/Kindle).
This recommendation comes from Daniel Howell. If your congregation doesn’t have a website, or has one that no one has updated or is unhappy with, check out Squarespace as an option. They are a one-stop shop, in that they offer hosting and the content management framework to easily build and maintain a beautiful website. As a note, Southeast’s website (which you are using right now) is done through Squarespace.
