Study to show yourself approved unto God, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. (2 Tim. 3:15)
As an Institute dedicated to equipping and empowering urban church leaders, the Timothy Library offers a way of resourcing urban pastors, Christian leaders, missionaries, and others with relevant books and materials that will aid them in their theological training. It is a place where students of the Word are connected with the tools they need to uncover God's timely truths and where leaders gather for the purpose of scholarship.
The Timothy Library has hundreds of commentaries, Bible resources, and books available that cover a wide range of theological and Christian living topics. Here are some of the categories you will find on our shelves:
Bible Interpretation (Hermeneutics)
Old and New Testament
Spanish Bible Resources
Video Resources (DVD)
