Investing in commentaries, lexicons, and bible study software in order to deepen one’s study of God’s Word is commendable, but it is not always feasible. Commentaries can be rather expensive, and although software such as Logos can help you obtain a considerable library at a lower cost, it is still an expensive investment. Fortunately, you don’t have to break the bank to access quality resources. In no particular order, the following are five excellent online resources that will assist you as you study the Word of God:

1. Bible Hub

Bible Hub features quite a few bible study tools that are relatively easy to use. There are concordances, commentaries, as well as tools for Greek and Hebrew studies. The site also provides a search engine, and pretty easy to follow instructions for navigating their site. If you are limited on funds but serious about Bible study, then Bible Hub is definitely worth bookmarking.

2. Theopedia

Theopedia is a comprehensive online encyclopedia of Biblical Christianity. It is chock-full of interconnected pages dealing with a myriad of theological subjects. The home page provides hyperlinks to various Christian topics, some of which are provided by notable scholars. If you do not own a systematic theology resource this site may come in handy.

3.The Consortium of Pentecostal Archives

The Consortium of Pentecostal Archives is a collaboration of different Pentecostal organizations who have made their Pentecostal archives available online. The repository of historical Pentecostal literature on this site is exceptional. The site provides a fairly easy to use search engine that makes extracting historical articles fairly painless. Some of the notable contributors to the site are the Assemblies of God, Church of God in Christ, Fuller Theological Seminary, and the United Pentecostal Church. Put this one at the top of your bookmarks.

4. New Advent

New Advent is a Catholic site. It is an incredible resource for the study of Church history. New Advent provides a theological library, writings from the early church fathers (an excellent resource when studying the history of the trinity), early church documents, and a myriad of other articles. Although it is a Catholic site that should not discourage you from using it as a research tool, especially when studying church history.

5. Christian Classics Ethereal Library

The Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL) states that part of its mission “is to build up the church by making classic Christian literature widely available. If your interested in reading the works of Augustine, Bunyan, Chesterton, and Dante to mention a few, or if you are interested in the early church fathers, CCEL is an excellent resource. It is worth mentioning that in many universities, CCEL is an acceptable resource to cite when doing scholarly research.
