Thanks to staff at the NLS and the Santa Clara County Transcribers project staff we now have three New Testament Greek study resources. If you know Greek, these may help with review or further study. There will be much more to follow so keep checking back.
December 6: An article entitled "The Body: What Is It?" has just been posted to the Public Domain Library index of articles and books. It examines the meaning of the term "body" in First Corinthians 11:24, 27 and 29.
December 3, 2007: A new series of sermon synopses and outlines entitled "Rapture Series" are beginning to be posted in that index. About 12 will be available soon and many more to follow on a weekly basis. If this interests you, keep checking back.
November 30: The first 9 lessons from Essentials of New Testament Greek by Ray Summers has been posted in a single volume file. Thanks to Catherine Thomas, braille@panix.com, and her special skills using Optical Braille Recognition scanning, it is hoped that the remaining volumes along with several other study aids will be posted in the near future. If this is an interest of yours, keep checking back for new additions.
November 18: The completed Greek New Testament, Bartimaeus Edition, has now been posted. The Gospel of Luke was completed on the 7th and the Gospel of John posted on the 17th. Should you find errors in the formatting, please let us know so that they can be fixed. There may be a minor number of edits to indicate variants in the future as time permits. If so, they will be mentioned either here or in the GNT Index. Efforts are continuing to provide study aids and perhaps even a United Bible Society edition of the Greek New Testament with Critical apparatus. Keep checking back.
November 3, 2007: The Dispensational Briefs published by the Dispensational Theological Seminary are now being posted in the Public Domain Library. There are both .PDF and .HTML posting, although, the .HTML may need a bit more editing.
October 26, 2007: The Gospel of Mark has been posted in the New Testament Greek section. Also, if you are in need of a Greek primer, a Greek-English dictionary, and Metzger's Lexical Aids, we hope to have them posted early next year. Keep checking back for updates. There is an extensive search being made as well to find additional NT Greek study materials. If you know of any, please let us know too!
October 17: Posted the Gospel of Matthew in the Greek New Testament section.
October 8:
Andy Bustanoby has once again posted a blog after several months.
October 5: Over the next months many Kenneth S. Wuest "Word Studies In The Greek New Testament for the English reader will be added to the Christian Bookshare section. We begin with "Golden Nuggets" and will be adding Word Studies in Mark, Romans and several other books as well.
October 3, 2007: Today "The Acts of the Apostles" Greek text was posted to the Braille Library section. The Gospels are coming.
September 21: Romans through Revelation has now been posted to the braille formatted Greek New Testament page. Revelation presented a real challenge deciding which of the large number of variants should be used.
August 29: A concerted effort is being made to complete the Stephanos Text of the Greek New Testament in braille format. The Stephanos text precedes the Textus Receptus but is very similar. If you are a Greek student, it is hoped that these files will be helpful either on your refreshable braille display or embossed as hardcopy, 40 cpl and 25 lpp. Check them out. You will need to apply for a membership, however, which is free.
August 15:
The Bartimaeus Bible Conference 2007 recorded messages. Two are on the subject of "sin" and 5 on the topic of "waiting".
Also, over the next week 7 seven booklets on the Christian Life will be posted in the Christian Bookshare section. Three are already there. They have been previously posted in the Braille Library section as well. You will want to read these helpful books.

My old DOS computer died and my old Windows 98 is threatening to do the same thing. The new XP Pro-based computer I am sure will be a useful tool just as soon as I can adjust my "Grandpa DOS" mindset to all the new software and techniques for moving through the seemingly endless menus, combo and dialog boxes, as well as lists, et cetera. Posting may be a bit slow in coming for a while. Your prayers will be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, check out the following posts.
April 30, 2007: Waiting to Welcome Him: A outline for a sermon preached on the 15th of April.
See also Andy Bustanoby's latest blog: Watch Out for Apophenia.
April 14, 2007: The complete "Holy Spirit Series" to this point has now been posted. As more synopses and outlines become available they will be added to the listing.

You will find Them extremely practical when properly understood and appropriated.
