Websites on Religion: Biblical Literature

The Atla Websites on Religion LibGuide is a growing, selective, annotated collection of web resources for the study of religion.
[The Apostle Paul] is inspired, and yet he wants books! He has been preaching at least for thirty years, and yet he wants books! He had seen the Lord, and yet he wants books! He had had a wider experience than most men, and yet he wants books! He had been caught up into the third heaven, and had heard things which it was unlawful for a men to utter, yet he wants books! He had written the major part of the New Testament, and yet he wants books!
― C. H. Spurgeon, Sermon 542 [on 2 Tim 4:13], delivered 11/29/1863
