About meBiblioMinistry is the place where faithful Christians and solid theological resources meet. As a theologically trained student of library science, my call lies in helping pastors do what they are called to do - "equip the saints" for their respective Christian ministries. We do this through searching out and linking to the best free resources available for individuals and congregations asking deep biblical and theological questions. We provide assistance to churches who are interested in developing dynamic, living church libraries that bring those in the congregation to deeper relationship with God. And while deep theological questions are generally best explored within the Christian community of a specific church, that is not always feasible. We thus make available many of our theological resources to the solitary student of theology.
About my libraryBiblioMinistry's library contains the best available liberal/progressive biblical and theological resources for laypeople who are wending their way through today's theological landscape. So much quality and enthralling Christian literature is buried under popular theology that promises much and asks little, but we would do well to recall Dietrich Bonhoeffer's thoughts on "cheap grace."
