The Pastor’s Library is compiled and maintained by the Faculty of Maranatha Baptist Bible College and Seminary.
Books are the tools of the pastor. This list identifies a few of the best books in each area of importance – books of the Bible, theology, and areas of ministry interest. The first book in each section should be the first to be purchased. Some of the books are annotated, giving you some basic information about the book and its usefulness. For the most part, the recommended books are exegetical and expositional. Devotional commentaries are generally not included in this list.
Here are the book lists we are making available so far:
- Systematic Theology
- Old Testament
- New Testament
- Whole Bible
- Pastoral Theology
- Historical Theology
- Special Sales (this page changes frequently)
