Find Bible Studies Articles

To find a journal article, connect to ATLA Religion Database and follow the on-screen instructions for searching the database.  To locate articles about scripture passages, click on Scripture at the top of the search menu.  “The Scriptures authority file is a hierarchical, browsable list of the Protestant Bible presented in canonical order. Users may select the expand option to drill down from book, to chapter and verse. Selecting any given book, chapter or verse will execute a search for that scripture reference within the database.”

Journal articles can provide current information, various points of view on your topic, and information that is not covered in books.  Search article databases like the ones recommended below when you need to find journal, magazine, or newspaper articles written about Bible studies and related topics.
