Logos monthly free ebook by John Stott (Aug)

John Stott
In a dark little chapel many years ago, a solitary schoolboy went in search of God and later gave his life to Christ. It turned out to be the most significant step he was ever to take. If it were not for Christ, he reflects, his would have been on the scrapheap of wasted and discarded lives. Instead, his life was used to lead countless others around the world to that same new life, and into a deeper understanding of the One who gave his life that we might live.


Fee's NT Exegesis on sale (Kindle)

New Testament Exegesis: A Handbook for Students and Pastors Kindle Edition 

3rd edition. Westminster John Knox Press, 2003. 

Building on the belief that the task of exegesis is to understand the divine-human intention locked within the biblical text, Gordon Fee provides a lucid step-by-step analysis of exegetical procedures that has made New Testament Exegesis a standard textbook for nearly two decades. Now more than ever, with an updated, newly integrated bibliography and an appendix directly addressing reader-response criticism, this essential, classic guide will assist students, scholars, and clergy in coming to grips with the New Testament.



good book on introduction to Psalms

by Gordon Wenham 

Digital List Price: $16.99
Kindle Price: US$3.99
Save $13.00 (77%)

 One of the most respected Old Testament scholars of our time introduces us to the history of scholarship on the Psalter and provides hermeneutical guidelines for interpreting the book— making accessible to us the transforming messages of the Psalms.

“This book’s many virtues make it instructive and refreshing: I appreciate its stress on the psalms’ place in public worship, and the speech-act notion of self-involvement in singing. Wenham also offers helpful arguments for respecting the titles of the psalms. And the creative approach to ‘canonical reading’ allows us to view each psalm both as a composition for public singing and as a part of the canonical book (which may guide our interpretation). I heartily commend this work!”
C. John CollinsProfessor of Old Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary


Logos monthly ebook: Verbum chosen instead (July)

I don't think July's Logos monthly ebook is so recommendable (but still, it's free: The Old Religion in a New World: The History of North American Christianity by Mark A. Noll)

Instead the Verbum one (the Catholic edition of Logos running on exactly the same platform) is way more attractive (even with the added Luke commentary by L. T. Johnson!):

Logos monthly free ebook (May)

  • I don't think Logo's free book of the month (May) is recommendable [well, you can still go there]. But this one from her sister company/program, Verbum is not bad, a classical work by an important early church father.

The Homilies on the Acts of the Apostles

The saint whose name means "golden-mouthed" earned this title because of his profound and eloquent preaching, which was often transcribed for wider distribution. That distribution has reached into our age, and we today can benefit from the wisdom he disseminated over 1,600 years ago. This Easter season dive deeper into the life of the early Church, whose impetus was the power of the Resurrection, an impetus which drives the Church today.

Various Authors
Brandon O’Brien and E. Randolph Richards shed light on the ways Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible. They identify nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what is going on in a text than what the context actually suggests. Drawing on their own cross-cultural experience in global missions, the authors show how greater understanding of cultural differences in language, time, and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways.

Disaster Ministry Handbook Kindle Edition 

by Jamie D. Atenand  David M. Boan 

IVP, 2015.

Digital List Price:

Kindle Price: US$4.99
Save $14.01 (74%)

When disasters happen, people turn to local churches as centers for response and assistance. When floods or tornadoes devastate an area, or when shootings and violence shock a community, knowing what to do can be the difference between calm and chaos, courage and fear, life and death. But few churches plan in advance for what they should do— until the storm hits.

Don't get caught unprepared. If a natural disaster or human tragedy strikes your community, your church can minister to the hurting. Jamie Aten and David Boan, codirectors of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute, provide a practical guide for disaster preparedness. Disaster ministry is a critically important work of the church, preparing for the unthinkable, providing relief to survivors, caring for the vulnerable and helping communities recover. Filled with resources for emergency planning and crisis management, this book provides best practices for local congregations. By taking action in advance, your church can help prevent harm and save lives during a disaster.

The time to plan is now. Be prepared.

Publisher: Eerdmans
$499.99  US$99.99
Save 80% (avg. US$8.3@ vol.)

The New International Greek Testament Commentary Series, based on the UBS Greek New Testament, engages in deep exegetical and interpretational study of the New Testament on a verse-by-verse level, providing readers with detailed textual commentary and scholarly research. An enticing series for any reader of the Greek New Testament at any level of comprehension of the Greek language, this series opens up new doors for a Greek-minded study of the Bible.
Consideration of theological themes sits at the heart of this commentary series. Bringing in historical and contextual aspects of interpretation, readers will see the New Testament as those who first read it two thousand years ago and understand the theological purposes behind each sentence.
This series is a must for anyone looking for an accessible, respectable commentary on the Greek text.

This Risen Existence: The Spirit of Easter

Paula Gooder

Paula Gooder leads us on a biblical exploration of the resurrection accounts in each of the Gospels and in Paul’s writings, as well as the account of the Ascension and coming of the Spirit at Pentecost in Acts. Arranged for daily reading through the seven weeks of Eastertide, the book opens with an extended reflection on ancient and contemporary understandings of resurrection. Subsequent chapters lead us on an exciting journey of discovery through the New Testament narratives in a quest to discover what resurrection tells us about life after death, the end times, and what it actually means to be a Christian.

"The Bible is what God has made. Sermons are what we make with what God has made." This is the foundation for developing expository messages, according to Ramesh Richard. His method, explained in Preparing Expository Sermons, has been field-tested in training seminars for thousands of preachers around the world.

Richard's book is a simple do-it-yourself resource for developing and preaching expository sermons. It guides the reader through a seven-step process, with many practical suggestions and illustrative charts along the way. In addition, there are eleven appendixes that include information on:
o how to choose a text
o preaching narratives
o understanding your audience
o forms of sermon introduction
A comprehensive sermon evaluation questionnaire is included as well.

Preparing Expository Sermons, an updated and expanded version of Scripture Sculpture, is ideal for beginning preachers, lay preachers without formal training, or any pastor who is looking for a refresher course in expository sermon preparation.
