Logos Free Book of the Month for April 2021 – Dru Johnson, The Universal Story: Genesis 1–11

Lexham Press is the featured publishers in this month’s Free Book of the Month promotion from Logos Bible Software. This sale samples a little bit of every kind of commentary Lexham has to offer: short Bible studies, pastoral commentaries, historic commentaries (Spurgeon) and academic commentaries. Lexham is this month’s giveaway: a 64-volume collection of Lexham commentaries, a $1649.99 retail value. There are four ways to enter, so enter early and enter often.

Dru JohnsonThe first three on the list are in the Transformative Word series. In my review of the Deuteronomy volume in the series, I said the series “was designed for a personal devotion or a small group Bible study. As such it should satisfy most readers. It is thoroughly theological reading of the book of Deuteronomy, seeing the book through the lens of Jesus Christ and the New Testament. It does not deal with any of the details of the Law in a historical or exegetical way.” The same is true for the three on offer here, although I have not read Dru Johnson on Genesis 1-11. Heath Thomas wrote the Two Horizons commentary on Habakkuk (Eerdmans, 2018; reviewed here), so I anticipate it is an excellent contribution to the Transformative Word series.

Grant Osborne, James Verse by Verse is an excellent expositional commentary. I have reviewed most of the volumes in the past and found them to be good commentaries for the busy pastor. They are exegetically engaged, but not really academic commentaries. Osborne does not go into details on the Greek text or interact with a great deal of secondary literature, but offers basic insight into the meaning of the text.

The highlight in this sale is JoAnna M. Hoyt’s Evangelical Exegetical Commentary on Amos, Jonah, & Micah (reviewed here). Even at $19.99 this is a great deal on one of the better exegetical commentaries on these three Minor Prophets (850 pages, retail is $54.99). Andreas J. Köstenberger’s Evangelical Biblical Theology Commentary on 1–2 Timothy and Titus is good, but it is not new; Lexham picked up this series from Broadman and Holman and the volume was published with a different cover in 2017. Steve Runge, High Definition Commentary: Galatians is a great deal at only $9.99.
