Below you will find various resources to help you in your faith journey. These are some of the resources that I have found helpful in my walk with the Lord, and I think they will benefit you too. I hate that it even has to be said, but just because a book is posted here does not mean I agree with or support every word the author has ever said or written. The particular work is beneficial to you to build a well rounded, and strengthened theology and understanding, as well as to help you be transformed into the likeness of Christ.

Bible Study Software
Logos Bible Software – This is the most comprehensive and robust bible study software available. There are numerous different levels to the software, each offering more resources, but also costing more. If you are serious about your Bible study a lower or midlevel version will suit you just fine. The higher levels are geared more for pastors, professors, and theologians. Be warned, because of the robustness of this software it is not cheap.
Bible Gateway – I use this for quick reference when looking up scriptures online and when writing articles. I prefer NASB for continuity in my articles, as well as its word for word translation.
Blue Letter Bible – Find it in the app store on your smart phone. It has commentaries, concordances, and more. Plus, it’s FREE!
Logos Bible Software – See above

Courses With Frank Viola
Living By The Indwelling Life Of Christ – This is an excellent at home course offered by Frank Viola, whom I consider to be one of my spiritual mentors. My wife and I took the course and gained incredible insight into the Lord, and living by His life. To say it revolutionized my thinking and my theology would be an understatement. Registration only opens a few times each year, so be sure to get on the wait list.
