Books for the Moore College Evening Course
Theological books are both numerous and expensive. Yet they are an important aid to your study. While you do not need to purchase any books to do the course, you will find that it helps. Here are a few comments to help you decide what to buy.
a) There are certain basic books which will help you throughout the Course and so are good ones to purchase. These are:
i) The New Bible Dictionary, IVP
ii) The New Bible Commentary, IVP
iii) A good concordance, (what you buy will depend on the Bible version you usually use)
b) There are other books which you will find useful to purchase (see Units for recommended reading). These include commentaries on individual Bible books and a general doctrine book such as Know the Truth by Bruce Milne or In Understanding Be Men by T.C. Hammond.
c) Other books are also helpful in allowing you to go much more deeply into the subject being studied. These may be worth purchasing, but often it is better to use them for a while to see if you would continue to gain value from them. Usually they can be borrowed from someone for a short time and some may be in your local library (if they're not, ask for them. Librarians are often prepared to purchase books which are texts for courses).
d) In some subjects we recommend material published by the External Studies Department. These notes are only available to our students and not for general sale.
e) The Moore College library, situated in the administration building, 1 King Street Newtown, is open to the public Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 5.00pm. Books cannot be borrowed from the College library.
f) Books may be purchased from Moore Books.
