There are tons of useful resources out there on the Internet. We all know that. And there are even more that are less useful, of course. I will try to add here a few that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in sites that can be of help in learning and thinking about life. I will probably be pretty selective about what I recommend, so there won’t be any sort of exhaustive list here, but hopefully anything that you see should be well worth your time to check out. From time to time I will add new recommendations.
- Archive.org: If you don’t know about this site, it is an absolutely great place to find older books in electronic format FOR FREE. If the book is out of copyright because it is old, chances are you can find it on this site. At least, that is my experience. Not often have I looked for a book on this site and not been able to find it. You can download the books in scanned PDF format, or in text format, or even in kindle format. There are other options as well. Sometimes the text and kindle formats are not of the highest quality. The PDF versions are pictures of the actual pages of the physical book, and those are usually good. But the conversion process to anything text-based sometimes ends up corrupting the text just a bit. It is still a great resource, though. And did I mention that everything is available for free?
- Sermons from my home church: Grace Baptist Church of Dickson, TN. The sermons are located on www.sermonaudio.com, which is itself a great place for lots of free sermons from many thousands of sources.
I will especially recommend a sermon that has had a special place in the development of our church over the last years: Babylonian Garment Issues. Check it out and listen to it. It is worth your time.
- Another particular speaker worth your time to listen to is Iain Murray. You can find a number of his sermons and church history lectures on sermonaudio. He is not always the most dynamic of speakers, but I would recommend his lectures on church history especially if you are interested in that field.
- Martyn Lloyd-Jones Recording Trust: If you have not heard of Martyn-Lloyd Jones, he was a very well-known preacher in London for many years during the mid-twentieth century. His books and sermons are very well known and useful today. All of his recorded sermons (probably with some exceptions, no doubt) are available for free at this website. I would highly recommend them. If you are looking for a place to start, I would recommend anything that he preached on Revival.
