Baker Academic partners with Faithlife for the Logos Free Book of the Mon the in July 2023. This month’s Free book is C. Peter Wagner, The Book of Acts. This Acts Commentary was published in 2000. Wagner’s 600+ page commentary on Acts focuses on “Acts of the Holy Spirit,” as you might expect from church growth and spiritual warfare expert Peter Wagner.
Wagner is good, but check out this list of other discounted commentaries from Baker Academic this month. Commentaries by Hurtado (Mark) and Longman (Jeremiah) in the Understanding the Bible series, plus Jo-Ann Brant’s John commentary (Paideia) and
Two highlights for me. First, Galatians and Christian Theology: Justification, the Gospel, and Ethics in Paul’s Letter is a great collection of essays in Galatians, Essential reading for anyone studying Galatians. Second, Udo Schnelle, Apostle Paul: His Life and Theology for $ 10.99 is a great deal. I also enjoyed reading Steve Moyise, Paul and Scripture.
