Introduction to this Bible Study Web Site

As my family recently moved into a new home, I looked forward with great pleasure to having a real office area all to myself. My eldest daughter was given the job of keeping track of my collection of books as they were packed and transported to their new location. The majority of my personnal library is comprised of Biblical language references and a fair number of commentaries that I've collected over the years. In recent years I've often bemoaned the lack of sound biblical reference works to be found in the average Christian bookstore. This generation has come to accept the seeming endless flow of "How-to" books that now fill the shelves of these stores with advice on how to handle any crisis or problem in life. This is not to say that there is not some valid information in these books, but rather that as a people, Christians have abandoned the simple practice of studying God's Word in seeking the guidance for their lives. Going beyond the simple expedient of reading our Bibles which is of great importance it is often much in absence as well, but taking the time to actually study God's Word as we are commanded. Some may think this is an extreme view, but I'd suggest seeing what the Scripture itself has to say. As my father recently pointed out in a family discussion regarding those who would stand and teach others there is a rather specific qualification given in Galatians 6:6 "Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things." My goal is to try to be a help and possibly offer some resources to others who are seeking to study God's Word. There are a number of topics folks like to argue about these days. I don't intend to spend time "striving about words to no avail" but will gladly discuss honest questions with those who are interested in knowing what God's Word says. I definitely don't claim that I'm always right. My wife and daughters keep me straight on that account on a regular basis.
