Logos Bible Software has offered a free book each month for quite some time. Usually these were out-of-copyright classics that were widely available on the internet for free. But the last few months have been very good indeed. This month, Logos is giving away 300 Quotations for Preachers from the Puritans, by Bible Study Magazine contributor Elliot Ritzema. Ritzema served as an Old Testament editor for the Lexham English Bible and is a contributor to the Faithlife Study Bible. These 300 Quotations for Preachers are drawn from more than 70 authors including Anselm of Canterbury, Augustine of Hippo, Richard Baxter, Bernard of Clairvaux, John Calvin, G. K. Chesterton, John Chrysostom, Irenaeus of Lyons, Thomas à Kempis, Martin Luther, and more. The quotes appear with some scripture and the book includes a PowerPoint style slide for each quote suitable for church use (or spamming your facebook friends with Richard Baxter quotes).
In addition to this free book, Logos is also offering an “almost free” book, Study, Apply, Share: James (Lexham Press 2012). This is part of Logos’ own Pastorum Series and is written by Jeffrey E. Miller. This series is intended as a “sermon prep” jump starter,” including 5-7 questions with corresponding links to Logos resources two application ideas and two memorable worship service ideas as well as professionally designed slides with graphs and charts. The book is only 99 cents for a limited time. You can enter to win the full Pastorum Collection (Two Quotes for Preachers volumes and the Study, Apply, Share volumes on Mark, Luke, Philippians Hebrews and James, a $187 value).

Hello, Dr. Long. Saw you briefly at the GBC Graduation. Would like to have spoken with you, but you were “raptured” away!! – Bill G
Sorry I missed you! I was swept away by the crowd pretty quickly. I probably should have braved the refreshments room for a little while at least.
