A Quarantine Library


One of the challenges many students and professors around the world have faced during the various stages of lockdown and quarantine is lack of library access. In my own situation, I have also lacked regular access at times to the personal library I keep in my office. It has been a challenge, but other people are facing far more difficult problems, so we need to do what we can with what we have without complaining.

One of the things I have been forced by necessity to do over the last several months is find and collate online sources that are useful for the tasks I am doing. Since I sometimes point out the negative impact of the internet, it is only fair to point out its benefits when possible. This is one of those cases. Being able to access many biblical and theological resources online during this time has been a true blessing.

Many readers are probably already aware of some or all of these, but for those who aren’t and for those who find something like this useful, here are a few of the resources that I have found helpful.
