And of course I think these are pretty good. I recommend them too.

 

Basic Christianity is a collection of basic teaching for new Christians which comes from some of the articles on this web site.

This basic level of teaching is what the apostle Paul refers to as spiritual milk. It’s a bit easier to “digest” than some of the meatier, more advanced teaching that you might be hearing in other places. But as a spiritual baby it’s good for you to just have some milk for a while until you get more used to it. Then you will have a good foundation for when you grow up and you are ready to study deeper things.

Some of the teaching in the Bible is pretty straightforward and there are often one or two verses which spell it out in black and white. Some other things though only take shape when you start to put the whole thing together. When you step back from a verse by verse theology and you look at the bigger picture.

The Bigger Picture examines some of those doctrines. Doctrines which are by their nature more fundamental in their impact on how we live out our Christianity. These are doctrines which will help you make sense of a lot of the smaller ideas, and which will give you a context in which to place other teachings.

I think Bibles should be free. And I don't think businesses should be making profits from selling them.

Little Watchman Translation is an attempt to make as literal a translation as possible while preserving the original intention and a consistent English reading. The overriding principle of translation was to try to avoid any preconception and to just let the original Greek say whatever it says.
And it's free.

Free. The kindle version is available on the Bible page of this site. It is also available in various formats on Smashwords.com.
