Authors of repute (This list is by no means complete)
Note that I do not hold these authors or preachers to be infallible, but like any person's writings, these must always be checked against Scripture. Those listed here I have found to offer the truth and have proved a good place to start for any serious Bible study.
STEM < https://www.stempublishing.com > publishingwebsite has many useful authors, which are not necessarily listed here. For example Edward Dennet <https://www.stempublishing.com/authors/dennett/> (accessed24 July 2020) is a great author for a new believer – he writes simply and is easy to read. Of course for the in–depth analysis one cannot go past J.N Darby <https://www.stempublishing.com/authors/darby/> (accessed 30 June 2018). But others such as H.L. Hossier (great commentary of the history books of the Old Testament – Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah and Ester); WTP Wolson, writes more on themes: a must read to understand the Church ("The Church: What is it?), the Holy Spirit ("Another Comforter") amongst other gems; William Kelly who has some great commentaries.
Many of these authors are still published and can be found in Australia at such places as the Petersham Bible & Tract Depot in Sydney <http://tractdepot.blogspot.com.au/> (accessed 24 July 2020).
Alistair Begg at Truth for Life < http://www.truthforlife.org/about/about-alistair-begg/> a Scottish preacher located in the US: I have found his sermons extremely helpful and challenging. Sermons are posted on the Truth for Life website (< http://www.truthforlife.org/resources/sermon/ > (accessed 25 October 2017).
Horatius Bonar God's Way of Holiness (accessed 30 June 2018), often known for some of his hymns, lived 1808-1889, Edinburgh, Scotland.
Arnold Fruchtenbaum at Ariel Ministries < https://www.ariel.org > has written much on the End Time prophecies. He has a wealth of knowledge of the Old and New Testament, and having not only met him and taken one of his three week study tours of Israel, I can testify his works are worth studying. Arnold's set of lectures on Revelation are well worth any serious student of these prophecies listening to. His understanding of Jewish life has given him an in-depth insight into the OT that an average Christian would struggle to understand. More about Dr Fruchtenbaum can be found atAriel Ministries which has many resources including DVD's that are every worth watching, especially those dealing with the history of the Jews. My wife and I have found "The Footsteps of the Messiah - A study of the Sequence of Prophetic Events", Ariel Ministries, San Antonio USA (ISBN 0-914863-09-6) Reprinted in 2011 to be very helpful in our relationship with Jesus Christ. It covers the entire prophetic period of the Messiah, and has a number of very useful appendices. There is also a study guide available for this book and a CD of lectures covering much of the subject matter (24 July 2020).
Alexander Hislop: The Two Babylons or The Papal Worship Proved to be the Worship of Nimrod and His Wife by Alexander Hislop First published as a pamphlet in 1853--greatly expanded in 1858, available in hardcover (although not sure whether available in 2012) on online - try, http://www.biblebelievers.com/babylon/ > for html version or elsewhere as PDF, including Google Books. This is an excellent book to help understand how worldly traditions have influenced the church and destroyed, in some cases, its focus on the Lord Jesus Christ.
David Hunt (1926 - 2013) The Berean Call < http://www.thebereancall.org/ > (accessed 25 May 2016) His most best known book is probably The Seduction of Christianity but has since produced many worthwhile books especially some Israel and its role in Christendom (e.g. A Cup of Trembling). He has a good understanding of Islam and why it fails to please God.
Harry A Ironside (1876 - 1951) works can found at The Library Thing < http://www.librarything.com/author/ironsideha > and other locations - try also Google Book. A bible teacher and evangelist, and pastor of Moody Memorial Church (Chicago, USA). (Accessed 30 November 2014).
William Kelly The writings of William Kelly < https://www.stempublishing.com/authors/kelly/ >
Gives a clear and concise exposition of many books of the bible, especially the Old Testament along with messages for Christian living.
CH Mackintosh< (1820 - 1896) The wittings of CH Mackintosh < https://www.stempublishing.com/authors/mackintosh/ >
One of the best for understanding the Law and its relation to Christian theology. He wrote extensively on Christian living, but also on the first five books of the bible.
Chuck Missler (1934 - 2018) K House < http://www.khouse.org/ > The late Chuck Missler produced many useful resources, including sound recordings of messages and notes. His Genesis, although highly technical, is good reading and a must for any Christian student of science.
James Innell Packer (1926 -) is probably best known for his book Knowing God (Publisher: InterVarsity Press ISBN # 9780830816507). Some have dismissed him totally due to his failure to separate from those whose actions not only appear evil but in some cases are evil (see his views on the ecumenical movement), however, his early works are sound (let me know if this is not true contact mail).
Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899 - 1981) < https://www.mljtrust.org/ >, an evangelist, who has a vast collectionf of sermons and written material, that covers a host of issues relevant for today's society. Some of his sermons are avaialable as MP3's
Arthur Pink (1886 - 1952) has many websites devoted to him, one being Grace Gems: Pink < http://gracegems.org/Pink/Books.htm > (25 October 2017). He was an avid writer dealing especially with the rapid declension of the church in the early part of last century. I have his "Exposition of Hebrews" in hard copy, which is excellent; noting he was an ardent Calvinist.
John Charles Ryle (1816 - 1900) an Anglican bishop who wrote many thought provoking pamphlets and books. Some on-line resources include Grace Gems: Ryle < http://gracegems.org/Ryle/books.htm > or at Bible Bulletin Board < http://www.biblebb.com/ryle.htm > (30 June 2018). Ryle's excellent commentaries especially of the Gospels must be read by serious students and can be purchased in book form.
Charles Spurgeon (1834 - 1892) wrote thousands of articles, many of which are on-line. Many of his works are acrhive in the Spurgeon Center for Biblical Preaching < https://www.spurgeon.org/ > (30 June 2018). There are many other websites that house the works of Spurgeon. However, most of Spurgeon's works are available cheaply from good book sellers. His more famous books include "Morning and Evening" a series of devotions to be read twice daily and "The Treasury of David" a treatise on the Psalms. For the preacher I find "Lectures to My Students" (Christian Heritage, UK, 1998) very useful, owing the hard copy - available on Google Books <https://books.google.com.au/books> (accessed 30 June 2018).
Aiden Wilson Tozer (1897 - 1963) wrote many articles pertinent to the modern church whose declension has rendered her impotent. His motto, if he had one, was "knowing God firsthand". Many of his articles have been republished and can be found in cheap paperback versions for only a few dollars from reputable Christian book stores. Some can be found on the internet. Recommended reading includes "What Ever Happened To Worship", "Pursuit of God", "God's pursuit of Man", "This world: playground or battleground", "The Worship Driven Life" to name but a few. His works can be found on many websites; one of which has some of his sermons as MP3 files called Sermon Index with AW Tozer's works found here <http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/viewcat.php?cid=6> (24 July 2020).
Andy Woods < https://www.andywoodsministries.org/ >a straight forward bible teacher whose on-line sermons are well worth listening to - obtainable from Sugar Land Bible Church < https://slbc.org > or < https://www.sermonaudio.com/search.asp?speakeronly=true&currsection=sermonsspeaker&keyword=Dr._Andrew_Woods >. The sermons come with Powerpoint notes or pdf, which help with understanding the content. Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/DrAndyWoods/ (24 July 2020).
