Welcome to your Library. By that I mean I am putting most of what I have written here in pdf. format for you to use absolutely free of charge. You can download the various doctrines and commentaries and use them for your own personal or professional reference and study, or to supply for your students if you are a Bible teacher. The only thing I ask is that you adequately cite that it belongs to me, along with our website, and that you don’t package and sell it on the open market without my permission.
Having said this, I would ask you to donate to this ministry to keep it going. I take no salary, and all donations go to mission work. We need your help. Just to the donate button and place your donation through Pay Pal. Thank you in the name of Jesus Christ.
Here is some background. I have four post graduate degrees, with two of them at the doctoral level. The Lord has been very good to me and has allowed me to be a pastor for eight years, an overseas missionary for seven years in the Kingdom of Tonga, and over 30 years teaching from community college, Bible College, university and seminary level. Putting all those years of going to school, then teaching as a pastor, missionary and educator, I have more than 40 years of serious study of the Bible.
My main focus is theology, Bible, psychology, and cross-culture studies. Students have ranged from village pastors with no education to graduate school students. My experience with people of another culture has encompassed over 35 years.
He has given me opportunity to write some 600 pages of systematic theology, and over 400 pages of Bible commentary, plus many other manuals and articles on various subjects. My wife (Esmeralda) and I have started Bible Academies in several countries around the world, with the target population being village pastors and Christian leaders. Those Academies do not have good (or any) libraries; consequently, I desire to make our works available to those village pastors and leaders – and anyone else. The best way is to make them available is via the internet.
Some of the material is what we teach in those Bible academies, and some is not – but are my lecture notes from over the years taught at different institutions. Consequently, some is easy to understand while others are more complicated in content. The writing is not uniform, meaning some is written at a popular level, and other material at a graduate school level and in outline form.
My goal is to give you quality evangelical Christian research to the end that you become better equipped to become an even better success than you are now – and all to the glory of Jesus Christ and betterment of His people. At 78 years of age, my time of service to Christ in this life is nearing the end, and I desire to pass on to others what God has taught me. At this writing, I am still (and will continue) teaching and starting Bible academies overseas. My time on this earth is in the hands of Almighty God.
Some of the doctrines are in outline form and are not consistent in page numbers, because I broke my manuals on theology into shorter doctrines or pieces. There are major bibliographies that contain selected references, and also match the foot notes in the theologies. Sometimes the bibliographies are contained in the written material itself.
A word about the numbering and identification system.
SyTh indicates systematic theology, either as my lecture notes with the scribbles in the margins, etc., or written in a popular form.The contents page gives page numbers, except for the theologies written in popular form.
