Logos Bible Software’s Free Book of the Month is William S. Lamb, Scripture: A Guide for the Perplexed (T&T Clark, 2014). Lamb is Vice-Principal and Tutor in New Testament Studies, Westcott House, Cambridge. T&T Clark’s Guide for the Perplexed series features excellent primers on complicated topics. In this volume, Lamb discusses “the questions posed by biblical criticism to the enterprise of Christian theology and the place of scripture in the life of the contemporary church.”

This is a great chance to add some recent ICC volumes to your collection. C. K. Barrett on 2 Corinthians is very good. There is a nice mix of biblical, theological, and historical studies on offer here. So head over to the Free Book of the Month page and buy as many as you like.
The Logos September Sale has got some great deals. Maybe too many. This is a rare time when you can save 25% on BDAG, the best Greek Lexicon available. It is still pricey but well worth the money. I glanced through the list. There are quite a few expensive bundles, but also some individual volumes, which are great deals. Poke around the sale and see what you can find.
Finally, Logos has a 40% off Zondervan resources, including the Zondervan Exegetical New Testament Commentary series (here is my review of Buist Fanning, Revelation). I have used several of these volumes; they are all very good, user-friendly, and helpful for academics and pastoral work. If you purchased some of the NIVAC commentaries on sale last month, you can fill-in that set for 40% off. Remember, Logos has this “dynamic pricing” thing where they credit you what you have already spent in a collection, so you do not pay for a book twice.
If you do not already own Logos, check out my first-look review of Logos 10. This month, you can save $100 on a Logos Starter Package (new users only). This special offer expires on September 15. Do not wait too long!
Current users have various upgrade paths, from “Not expensive at all” to “Who needs food?” and everything in between. You can still get Logos Fundamental ($49.99) or Basic (free) packages and take advantage of the free Logos Book of the Month promotion. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the free/cheap packages. All it takes is a Faithlife account, and you can read your books using the iOS or Android app, the Logos web app, or the (much more powerful) desktop version for both Windows and Mac.
