In addition to the regular Free Book promotion from Logos (this month it is a one-hour Mobile Course on Faith Working Through Love by N. T. Wright), Logos has added a second promotion featuring Joseph Blenkinsopp. He is Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana and has written major commentaries on Isaiah 1-39, 4-55, and 56-66 in the Anchor Bible Commentary, Ezra-Nehemiah in the OTL (as well as Judaism, the First Phase: The Place of Ezra and Nehemiah in the Origins of Judaism, Eerdmans 2009), and Opening the Sealed Book: Interpretations of the Book of Isaiah in Late Antiquity (Eerdmans, 2006). His History of Prophecy in Israel (WJKP 1996) is a classic textbook. He has published shorter books on Abraham: The Story of a Life (Eerdmans 2015) and David Remembered: Kingship and National Identity in Ancient Israel (Eerdmans 2013).
For the next month, you can add Blenkinsopp’s Creation, Un-creation, Re-creation: A Discursive Commentary on Genesis 1-11 (T&T Clark 2011) to your Logos Library for free. This is a commentary on Genesis 1-11 arguing “from biblical point of view, creation cannot be restricted to a single event, nor to two versions of an event (as depicted in Genesis 1-3) but, rather, must take in the whole period of creation arranged in the sequence: creation – uncreation – recreation (as can be derived from Genesis 1-11).”
For $2.99 add Blenkinsopp’s Interpretation commentary on Ezekiel (WJKP, 2012). Although not everyone appreciates the Interpretation series, the brevity of the commentary make for a quite read (and the price is right!)
For an additional $4.99 add his Wisdom and Law in the Old Testament: The Ordering of Life in Israel and Early Judaism (Oxford University Press, 1995). This might be the real gem of Logos’s promotion since the book is difficult to find inexpensively in print.
Scroll all the way to the bottom and add his Ezra-Nehemiah commentary for $6.99
So for the next thirty days, you can pick up three excellent, scholarly resources for your Logos library for less than $15.
If you are looking for a good way to spent your stimulus check and do not have Logos Bible Software yet, download the free Logos Basic or Logos 8 Fundamentals for only $99. With either minimal package you can download and use these sale books as well as the Logos free book every month.

I’m bummed. I forgot to check out after adding the Genesis 1-11 Research Commentary to my cart last month.
At least you have Blenkinsopp to make you feel better (assuming you hit checkout this time!)
Dr. Long, surprised you didn’t mention “Chance and the Sovereignty of God: A God-Centered Approach to Probability and Random Events” by Vern Poythress for $3.99 – a deal for a challenging look at the world around us with all its tick-tocks, burps and confounding events. All that I fail to understanding will not be because of Vern’s failure to explain things in an interesting and understandable manner
Is that available on Logos?
Surprised that you did not mention “Chance and the Sovereignty of God: A God-Centered Approach to Probability and Random Events” by Vern Poythress. A very interesting and sometimes challenging look at the world in which we live and the tick-tocks, burps and the surprises that we wake up to – or that wake us up. Continuity may be as difficult to understand as the sovereignty of God. My lack of understanding will not be because Vern did not write with clarity, in an interesting fashion, and/or possess a strong grasp of the subject.
