Logos Free Book for November 2022 – Luke (Preachers Commentary)

 

Logos Black Friday

From November 15-24, Logos is offering a wide range of Commentary Mini-Bundles. Rather than invest in whole commentary sets, you can get more affordable sections of a series. For example, get just the 17-volumes of the Anchor Bible Historical books, or the Gospels. They have similar bundles for the New American Commentary series, the Preaching the Word Commentary series, and the Tyndale Old and New Testament Commentary series. There are quite a few individual commentaries on sale as well. This is a great time to stock up on commentaries for your Logos Library.

For the whole month, there are three publishers in this month’s Spotlight: Crossway, Moody and WKJ. For example, you can pick up the 34-Volume MacArthur New Testament Commentary set for 40% off or the 26-volume Crossway Classic Commentary set for 40% off.

Logos Free Book

Logos is giving away two resources for pastors as part of their Logos Free Book of the Month promotion in November 2022. Until the end of the month, you can add  both Get The Preacher’s Commentary: Luke and Jon Courson’s Application Commentary: New Testament for free to your Logos Library. Edited by Lloyd Ogilve, the Preachers Commentary Series combines rich resources of historical setting and textual interpretation with spiritual insights and contemporary illustrations specifically designed for communicators. The result is a resource by preachers/teachers for preachers/teachers. It is complete with outlines, section by section expositions, illustrations, and applications. Jon Courson is the founding pastor of Applegate Christian Fellowship and writes with a very readable and comfortable expositional style. This one-volume New Testament commentary published by Thomas Nelson  is 1800+ pages and gets great reviews on Amazon.

Along with the Logos Free Book, there is a wide range of discounted books this month. I will admit, the list looks weak early on, but by the middle , there are some great deals of good commentaries from Zondervan. The NIVAC volumes are certainly worth getting, as are the Story of God commentaries. I am currently using Scot McKnight, Sermon on the Mount commentary as a textbook in my Gospels class, and I have used Longenecker and Still, Thinking through Paul: An Introduction to His Life, Letters, and Theology for several years (priced at $9.99, that is a great deal!) There are a few older Word Commentaries, but the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary series are very good. Well worth the price.

  • J. Vernon McGee, Thru the Bible Vol. 56: The Epistles, 99 cents
  • Did You Know? More Than 6,000 Bible Questions and Answers, 99 cents
  • MacArthur’s Quick Reference Guide to the Bible, $1.99
  • Boa and Lorenzen, Visual Survey of the Bible, $1.99
  • Jon MacArthur, God in the Manger, $2.99
  • Herbert Lockyer, All the Parables of the Bible, $2.99
  • KJV Parallel Bible Commentary, $3.99
  • David Hubbard, Proverbs (The Preacher’s Commentary), $3.99
  • Scot McKnight, 1 Peter (NIV Application Commentary), $4.99
  • Scot McKnight, Sermon on the Mount (Story of God Bible Commentary), $4.99
  • John Byron, 1 and 2 Thessalonians (Story of God Bible Commentary), $5.99
  • Douglas and Tenney, eds., New International Bible Dictionary, $5.99
  • Roland Murphy, Ecclesiastes (Word Biblical Commentary), $6.99
  • Packer and Tenney, eds., Illustrated Manners and Customs of the Bible, $6.99
  • Joel Barker, Joel (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament), $7.99
  • William MacDonald, Believer’s Bible Commentary, $7.99
  • Mark L. Strauss, Mark (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament), $8.99
  • Ajith Fernando, Acts (NIV Application Commentary), , $8.99
  • George R. Beasley-Murray, John, 2nd ed. (Word Biblical Commentary), $9.99
  • Longenecker and Still, Thinking through Paul: An Introduction to His Life, Letters, and Theology, $9.99
  • Pre-Order and Save: Leviticus: A Discourse Analysis of the Hebrew Bible (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament), $34.99

You do not have to buy them all, but head to the Free Book site and grab as many as you want. Something to consider is “dynamic pricing.”  This means if you buy a book and it later appears in a larger collection you purchase, you will not be charged a second time. I have picked up quite a few of the NIVAC series from these discounted lists, so if I were to buy the whole NIVAC my price would be discounted accordingly.
