Building a Theological Library (Updated and Expanded)

Books are to the minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ what tools are to the carpenter: the essentials of the trade. A call to ministry is a call to preparation, and the building of a ministry library is a must, not an option.

Here is a list of updated and expanded resources compiled by Dr. Akin to help in the process of building a theological library. A new feature to this edition is a tagging system for commentaries on the Old and New Testament (T=Technical, P=Pastoral, D=Devotional). Also, the asterisks beside different books indicate Dr. Akin’s top choices for that category.
