Most Used Books

I’m just wondering what books you all use the most. For me, it’s got to be my Bible (for study: NASB or NET, for devotions: HCSB or NIV, for NT exegesis: Nestle-Aland), my copy of New Testament Text and Translations Commentary (I’m trying to get in the habit of using this more often), and a commentary of whatever book I’m studying at the time. So, what about you?

  1. Personal bible reading – NLT mostly
    Exegesis – BDAG, Wallace’s Exegetical Syntax, UBS4/NA27, BHS, TDNT, various commentaries

  2. Hmm… tough one. I refer to Robert Letham’s The Holy Trinity: In Scripture, History, Theology, and Worship quite often.

    Believe it or not, I use Louw & Nida more than BDAG. The IVP Black dictionaries also get quite a bit of use as does Craig Keener’s IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament.

    Bible-wise it’s the NET-NA27 Diglot at the moment, and my old NLT paperback NT with Psalms and Proverbs.

  3. Matt: Just as you forgot BDAG, so I forgot the IVP black dictionaries! Thanks, Nick, for provoking the ol’ memory! I also refer to Keener’s IVP Bible Background Commentary, as well as the OT volume. Another excellent volume in the repertoire is the Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testatment: excellent volume!

  4. Matt: Because it’s more fun. There’s two volumes so you have to look up the word in volume 2 and then go back through volume 1 to find it. Plus I have it in BibleWorks so that’s convenient. And I like that the words are arranged according to semantic domains rather than alphabetically. But I don’t do much translating or word studying these days so neither lexicon gets too much use.
