The following are some suggestions about Christadelphian books which can help us in our daily Bible readings during March and April and which are available from the Christadelphian Scripture Study Service (http://

Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy

  • The Beauty of Holiness by Michael Ashton
  • The Schoolmaster “to bring us unto Christ” by John Martin

March takes us from Psalm 105 to Psalm 150. The following comment upon some or all these psalms:

  • Psalms 73–106 and Psalms 107–150 (CSSS) by various authors
  • The Praises of Israel, Volumes 2 and 3 (The Christadelphian) by Dudley Fifield

Proverbs and Ecclesiastes

  • Proverbs (in 3 Volumes) by Aleck Crawford
  • Principles and Proverbs by Islip Collyer
  • Ecclesiastes and Other Studies by LG Sargent (includes comments on the two women of Proverbs 1–9)


CSSS does not stock any books which comment in a systematic manner on the complete text of Luke, but there are several which cover parts of the text, including:

  • Nazareth Revisited by Robert Roberts
  • A Life of Jesus by Melva Purkis
  • The Messiah and His Ministry (Part 1) by Andrew Walker
  • Parables of the Messiah by John Carter
  • Miracles, Wonders & Signs by Michael Ashton

Two works of fiction which relate to matters covered in Acts will interest some readers:

  • Cornelia’s Story by an anonymous author tells the story of a young sister at the Caesarea ecclesia in the AD60s
  • A Time to Act by SJ Knight, the fourth instalment in the “A Time to” series, tells the story of Paul’s ministry up to the end of his first missionary journey

1 and 2 Corinthians

  • The Challenge of Corinthians by Michael Ashton

Galatians, Ephesians and Philippians

  • John Carter wrote books on two of these letters, Galatians and Ephesians. These remain the standard works on those epistles.
