There are several theological works, both one volume and multi-volume sets. We will not list these theologies because more often than not they represent one particular theological slant. To represent those theological leanings would be detrimental to the scope of this study series and might prejudice the students one way or another against learning from these booklets. But there are a few general theological works that we have found particularly helpful. These we gladly recommend to the students.

There are scores of commentaries on the Scriptures. Like the theological works, they come in single volume or multi-volume sets. We list below only the sets that we find particularly helpful and not the single volumes works, which would be too numerous to mention.
