Logos is partnering with Eerdmans for their Free Book of the Month promotion. During May 2023, you can get a free copy of Mark Reasoner’s The Five Models of Scripture (Eerdmans, 2021. From the book blurb, “Mark Reasoner broadens the options for scriptural engagement by describing five models of Scripture: documents, stories, prayers, laws, and oracles. To illustrate each, he uses examples from throughout the history of interpretation. While he concedes that certain books of the Bible will naturally lend themselves to particular models, Reasoner shows how an appreciation for all five will enrich one’s scriptural insights while also bridging divides between the various branches of the Christian family.”
As usual, Logos offers a series of discounted resources along with the free book. This month, there is a very nice list of resources from Eerdmans. The Johanna W. H. van Wijk-Bos commentaries are excellent for the price, and Joshua Jipp, The Messianic Theology of the New Testament (Eerdmans 2020) is a great book, be sure to pick that one up while it is on sale. Although on the higher end of the price list, Zeba Crook, Ed., The Ancient Mediterranean Social World (Eerdmans 2020) and Sandra Huebenthal Reading Mark’s Gospel as a Text from Collective Memory (Eerdmans 2020) are excellent, recent academic works worth the investment. In fact, everything on this list is a great deal.
