Logos Free Book – Thomas Schreiner ‘s 40 Questions About Christians and Biblical Law

40 Questions Logos Bible Software partners with Kregel this month to offer Thomas Schreiner ‘s  40 Questions About Christians and Biblical Law (Kregel, 2010) for their “Free Book of the Month” promotion. Schreiner explains the “interplay between Christianity and biblical law.” Schreiner is well-known for his Baker Exegetical commentary on Romans and the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on Galatians. He serves as professor of New Testament Interpretation at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and was the president of the Evangelical Theological Society in 2014.

This book is part of Kregel’s “40 Questions” series. Schreiner therefore follows a Q&A format in order to cover a wide variety of questions about the relationship of Christians and the Law, such as What Does the Word Law Mean in the Scriptures? Does the Old Testament Teach That Salvation Is by Works?  Does Paul Teach That the Old Testament Law Is Now Abolished?  Is the Sabbath Still Required for Christians?  Should Christians Tithe?

Bateman WarningIn addition to this free book, Logos is offering Four Views on the Warning Passages in Hebrews (Kregel, 2007), edited by Herbert W. Bateman IV.  Bateman begins the book with a lengthy essay introducing the reader to the Warning Passages in order to set up the debate. The four views covered in the book are the “classic Arminian” by Grant Osborne, the “classic Reformed view” by Buist Fanning, the “Wesleyian Arminian view by Gareth Lee Cockerill and the “moderate Reformed view” by Randall Gleason. As is typical of these four-views books, each author responds to each position, and George Guthrie offers a concluding comment. More than most texts in the New Testament, exegesis of these passages in Hebrews is very much influenced by theological perspectives, so this book offers a balanced survey of the options.

So for 99 cents you can have two excellent books representing conservative Evangelical biblical scholarship. Both are worth owning and reading. But Logos is also giving away a copy of Logos 6 Bronze along with the six 40 Questions books published in the Logos library (a $670.90 value). Head over to Logos and get the two free/almost free books and register to win Logos 6.
