Logos Bible Software’s Free Book of the Month promotion partners with IVP Academic for the month of June. You can add Hard Sayings of the Bible (IVP, 1992) to your Logos library for free. Four scholars, Walter C. Kaiser Jr., Peter H. Davids, F. F. Bruce, and Manfred T. Brauch, offer explanations of over 500 of the most troubling verses in Bible readers. The book covers a wide variety of Bible difficulties, ranging from discrepancies about numbers to questions about God’s justice.
As always Logos offers some deep discounts on other books from their featured publisher. This month you can add these excellent biblical commentaries and theology books to your library for a reasonable price:
- Alister McGrath, The Spirit of Grace, 99 cents
- Tremper Longman III, Psalms: An Introduction and Commentary (TNTC), $1.99
- Donald Macleod, The Person of Christ (Contours of Christian Theology), $2.99
- Linda L. Belleville, 2 Corinthians (The IVP New Testament Commentary Series), $3.99
- Greg K. Beale, The Temple and the Church’s Mission: A Biblical Theology of the Dwelling Place of God (New Studies in Biblical Theology), $4.99
- John Goldingay and Tom Wright, The Bible for Everyone, $5.99
- Desmond Alexander, Exodus (Apollos Old Testament Commentary), $6.99
- Stephen Smalley, The Revelation to John: A Commentary on the Greek Text of the Apocalypse, $8.99
- Gary Millar, Changed into His Likeness: A Biblical Theology of Personal Transformation (New Studies in Biblical Theology), (pre-order, $7.99)
Longman on the Psalms is brief, but very good, Belleville on 2 Corinthians is certainly a great commentary, but the real deal is Alexander’s Exodus commentary in the Apollos series. There are two volumes in the NSBT series, Beale’s The Temple and the Church’s Mission has been influential and is well worth reading.
In the “another Free Book” promotion, Logos is offering Augustine, Homilies on the Gospel of John 1–40 (New City Press, 2009) is free in the month of June. This is part of a forty-nine volume set from New City Press offering new introductions and translations of Augustine’s works.
In his Cistercian Studies Quarterly review of this volume, Michael Casey said: “In general the translation is fluid; it can be read aloud and is as comprehensive as the original allows. This is a good piece of work, a necessary acquisition for any monastic library and solid spiritual nourishment for any with a taste for the writings of this great Christian thinker.”
You can also add the following Augustine volumes from New City Press at great discounts:
- Revisions, $1.99
- Sermons on the New Testament, $3.99
- Teaching Christianity, $5.99
- Sermons Discovered Since 1990, $7.99
- Expositions of the Psalms, $0.99
- On Genesis, $11.99
