Dr. David Bauer has recently published a new book, Essential Bible Study Tools for Ministry. This up-to-date, highly selective bibliography is designed to acquaint students and ministers with major works, significant publishers and prominent scholars in biblical studies. It is the perfect guide for beginning a research project or building a ministerial library. References are included based on the following considerations: (1) usefulness for the theological interpretation of the Bible within the context of the faith of the church; (2) significance in the history of interpretation; and (3) representation of evangelical and especially evangelical Wesleyan scholarship. It is an updated replacement for Dr. Bauer’s The Annotated Guide to Biblical Resources for Ministry.
The book can currently be found on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Bible-Study-Tools-Ministry/dp/1426755171/.
