Bible Study Resources
Bible Gateway – Free online resource with many Bibles, devotionals and other study materials.
OliveTree Bible Software – Cross-platform software with some free Bibles/resources. Other resources are pay to download. Simple interface, easy to use.
Logos Bible Software – In depth (and much more expensive) software. One of the better packages for in-depth Bible study, especially with Hebrew/Greek language tools. Also cross-platform. Will sell both individual resources and packages of books to be used in the software. Watch out for packages which seem to contain lots of resources and books that are of limited usefulness.

A note: the views expressed in these links contain a range of perspectives. Our goal is not to develop theological clones of one another, but in our community and devotional lives to grow in the image of Christ. Take and test what is good in the light of Christ and leave the rest.
