As a layman, seminary graduate, and Bible teacher, I've chosen to list books through Amazon.com because of the difficulty of obtaining good quality, doctrinally sound, instructional books on the Christian Faith. I have personally reviewed these books, and have labored to find the 'best' book on particular topics for my own use in preparing adult Bible classes at our local church. Yes, I do receive a commission on books bought through this site. However, I sincerely believe you will find books here not available locally and at a substantial discount.
Books used at the free Disciples' Institute of Biblical Studies are indicated with "DIBS" next to them. Some of these books have free study guides that may be downloaded from other parts of BrRon's Bible Corner. The only costs associated with DIBS are the purchase of books (from any source) and of corresponding via e-mail or snail mail.
