Too often we purchase a book with high hopes that it will be what we were looking for, only to be disappointed. Tools for Preaching and Teaching the Bible is an excellent resource providing Bible-believing Christians with sound and dependable advice for selecting the tools—books—that will help shape their ministry. These are books that Dr. Custer can wholeheartedly recommend, having compiled them as the result of many years of studying, teaching, and preaching God’s Word. This new edition keeps all the popular features of the first edition, such as introductory chapters on inspiration and the methods of Bible study, along with reference Bibles, Bible geography, Bible dictionaries and encyclopedias, and commentaries. The second edition has updated this information plus added new chapters on prophecy, the Holy Spirit, church history, cults, and more.

About Stewart Custer
Stewart Custer received a B.A. and M.A. in Bible and a Ph.D. in Greek text from Bob Jones University. He began teaching at BJU in 1955 as a graduate assistant in Greek. Besides teaching Biblical Theology, Methods of Bible Exposition, and advanced Greek courses at BJU, Custer was the director of the university’s planetarium and produced programs for public viewing. He was chairman of the Division of Bible and editor of Biblical Viewpoint, the journal of BJU’s School of Religion, until his retirement. Dr. Custer has been in demand as an expository preacher, visiting many churches to present a series of expositions on a single book of Scripture or to speak on specific topics such as the fallacies of evolution or the inspiration of the Bible. He currently serves as the pastor of Trinity Bible Church in Greer, SC.
