The Treasury of Rare Dispensational Commentaries is a collection of 100 rare old commentaries that are written from a Dispensational and Premillennial position.

The majority of commentaries that are readily available today are Reformed and Amillennial. They interpret prophecy by the false allegorical methodology and erroneously view the Church as Israel. Many of the best Dispensational and Premillennial commentaries are out of print.

I decided to create this collection when I realized that very few Premillennial commentaries are available in electronic edition for the computer. As a missionary who lives overseas and travels extensively, almost all of the commentaries I regularly use are on my computer.

The following is a description of the contents of the material in this collection which is a part of the
Fundamental Baptist Digital Library:

The following 21 volumes are by the popular Brethren preacher H. A. Ironside 1876-1951) -- Joshua, Ezra, Nehemiah, Psalms, Proverbs, S. Solomon, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel, Minor Prophets, Matthew, Mark, John, Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon, Hebrews, James, 1 and 2 Peter, 1, 2 and 3 John, Jude, Revelation

The Numerical Bible is 6 volumes covering Genesis to Revelation. It was written by Frederick William (1834-1902) and first published in 1932.

Composed of roughly 4,200 select books and articles, this 3.5 gigabyte library is the largest fundamentalist research database available. It is a contemporary church issues research library, a preacher’s information database, a Baptist history library, a Bible Version library, a library of dispensational Bible commentaries, and much more.

This is not merely a batch of material thrown on a CD. Everything in this electronic library is carefully selected to be of benefit to a fundamentalist in his Christian life and ministry. The vast majority of this information is unique to the Fundamental Baptist Digital Library and cannot be obtained from any other source.

All material in this database is in PDF format. There is a section and global search tool which allows quick searches across all pdf material. In addition, each document is searchable.  

The pdf files can be individually placed on your computer or e-book reader (e.g., Sony or Kindle), however, we ask that you not share these books and articles with others.  

“I have had the CD since the fall of 2000 and find it to be my most valuable fundamental resource. I use it in the preparation of sermons and for general information on most every subject concerning the days in which we live.” --Jerry Asberry, Pastor, Faith Missionary Baptist Church, Paducah, Kentucky


THE WAY OF LIFE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE BIBLE & CHRISTIANITY. Twenty-five years of research has gone into this one-of-a-kind reference tool. It is the only Bible dictionary/encyclopedia that is written by a Fundamental Baptist and based strictly upon the King James Bible. It is a complete dictionary of biblical terminology and also features many other areas of research not often covered in Bible reference volumes. It is extremely practical and useful for the ministry. Subjects include Bible Texts and Versions, Denominations, Cults, Christian Movements, Typology, the Church, Social Issues and Practical Christian Living, Bible Prophecy, and Old English Terminology. This work does not correct the Authorized Version of the Bible, nor does it undermine the fundamental Baptist's doctrines and practices as many study tools do. The encyclopedia contains over 5,500 entries and 6,000 cross references.

Over 337 issues of
O TIMOTHY MAGAZINE from 1984 to 2015.
