In addition to its extensive collection of theological journals BiblicalStudies.org.uk offers detailed bibliographies on every book of the Bible. These are usually divided into Introductions, Commentaries and other subjects – such as material on the book’s background, authorship, historicity  and dating. As well as providing links to Amazon listings,  many of the resources are available for free download. The page on the book of Daniel, for example, links to over 100 on-line resources.

These articles include many which are not available elsewhere on the Web and are difficult to find in print, even in the UK. Here are some examples of what is available:
