Resources for Discipleship


Last Sunday, I promised my church that I would post a small list of trustworthy resources that would help them study their Bibles more effectively. I did not know then, how daunting that task would be. There are just too many good resources to share, but none is perfect. So, please recognize that this list is not exhaustive and not perfect. In other words, take these suggested resources and use them wisely.
