Books For Ministry Wish List

This is my list of books I’d love to have for ministry. I’ve already gone online to find prices for most of them. Some aren’t available now, but may pop up later. All prices are from amazon.com unless otherwise noted.

Other websites useful for finding books:

cbd.com
alibris.com
bookfinder.com

My goal is to have one commentary for each book of the Bible first, then to purchase more as money allows. I’m guessing this list will only be useful for my mom and Jamie’s mom. It will be interesting to see how many books I get now instead of candy for stocking-stuffers! Yes, I realize I will never own a good majority of these…but, to take James 4:2 out of context, you do not have, because you do not ask God.

Books are listed by topic (in parentheses before the price). Topics like (Genesis 1) or (Mark 2) do not imply I prefer to have the first book first. That’s just the way I typed them in, and it helped me know when I found three commentaries I liked. And in case you’re curious, I made this list from David R. Bauer’s An Annotated Guide to Biblical Resources for Ministry, a must-have for any pastor.
