Learn from the Experts with the Lexham Methods Series

lexham-methods-series (2)A few weeks ago, we dropped the price of the Lexham Methods Series to $60: that’s over 75% off, an incredible discount on such a valuable resource. Have you placed your Community Pricing bid? If not, you should bid right now—a price this low won’t last long!

Need a bit more convincing? Our team of scholars has put hours of research and writing into the resource, but to make it even better, we’ve also called on a number of expert contributors. Lexham Methods is a collaboration between professors, linguists, and our in-house research team.

Here’s what our partners have to say about their work on the Methods series:

What’s most rewarding about working on the Lexham Methods Series?

David B. Schreiner (PhD): My favorite part of working with the series is rising to the challenge. Writing on a particular interpretive method forces you to know all aspects of the method. Writing for an audience that’s not necessarily restricted to the academy forces you to be on top of your game. You have to communicate ideas in a way that ensures broad-scale understanding.

Amy Balogh (PhD candidate, Iliff School of Theology & University of Denver): The best part about working on the Lexham Methods Series is the opportunity to share my understanding of the biblical text as a skillfully crafted work of art. Knowing that all who read from this series will come away with fresh, new insights into the text makes the project one that’s worthy of the time, effort, and care going into it.

How can the Lexham Methods Series help our users make their Bible study better?

John DelHousaye (PhD, associate professor, Phoenix Seminary): The Lexham Methods Series takes many of the best insights of biblical scholarship in the last two centuries and presents them in an understandable, practical way for the serious student of God’s Word.

Douglas Estes (PhD, lead pastor, Trinity Church & adjunct professor, Phoenix Seminary): With the Logos platform, Bible students of all levels can use this series as an easy-to-understand reference running parallel to the text. As a result, it has great potential to eliminate the divide between the professional scholar and the everyday Bible student.

What sets the Lexham Methods Series apart from similar products?

Judith Odor (PhD candidate, Asbury Theological Seminary): The brevity of the chapters—of each treatment of each method—makes the LMS unique in its field. There may be other introductions to various methods that offer the same depth of material, but they’re much lengthier, they’re more involved, they’re less approachable, and they don’t offer such a wide range of methods for your perusal, refreshment, or education.

Jeffery Leonard (PhD, assistant professor, Samford University): One of the best things about the Lexham Methods Series is the way it walks the reader step by step through each individual method, giving examples and comparisons along the way. It does a great job of balancing theory on the one hand with practical examples on the other.

Save Over 75% on the Lexham Methods Series

LMSWhen a product goes up on Community Pricing, you and other customers have control of the price before the resource goes into production. Usually we don’t start developing a product until it meets costs. But we’re so confident in the value of the Lexham Methods Series that we’ve already started development.

We want as many people as possible to benefit from this resource. So not only have we started production, but we’ve lowered the Community Pricing bid as well!

A few weeks ago, a miscalculation on our end led to an error on the Lexham Methods Series product page. We quickly fixed it, but some of you reached out immediately to express your excitement at seeing these resources at a lower price point. Between forum posts and the feedback we’ve received through the product reviews, we’ve heard your calls for a lower price.

Just how low has the price been slashed? That’s entirely up to you! The series is still on Community Pricing, so let’s look at some data:

  • The Lexham Methods Series started on Pre-Pub at $249.95. The community bid is now $60. That’s over 75% off. And the price could drop even lower.
  • As seminary students know, the average price of a single textbook for a biblical research methods or hermeneutics course is about $70. At just $15 per volume, the entire four-volume Lexham Methods Series costs less than one of these textbooks.

And the Lexham Methods Series is more than a textbook. This series covers all the major methods of biblical interpretation, guiding you through each method, its history, and its purpose. Each chapter leads you through a self-study—including a how-to section with numerous examples—and ends with a discussion of the interpretive method’s implications for ministry. Our research team has carefully presented each method so that you’ll be able to dig deeper into your research.

Lexham Press is committed to helping you better interpret the Bible. We believe the Lexham Methods Series will simplify your learning process and enhance your research.

Why Browse When You Can Pinpoint?

lexham-bible-guides-pauls-letters-collection (1)When I was in college, I dreaded embarking on any kind of heavy-duty research project. What should have been the most exciting part of the learning process became a nightmare—I would comb through countless books to find even a scrap of relevant data. I quickly learned that looking at the sources top scholars reference in their own work would lead me to the most pertinent information. But those of us who are already stretched thin by other responsibilities—ministry, family, career—simply don’t have time to spend hours in the library searching through the literature.

Revolutionize the way you research

The Logos platform overcomes these difficulties. With Logos’ interconnected library, I can quickly and easily find the best resources, leverage them for efficiency, and jumpstart my research process.

Look at the Lexham Bible Guides: Paul’s Letters Collection, for example. Logos’ professional research team has done all the heavy lifting. Each volume presents the most highly regarded scholarship, curated to represent all major viewpoints and annotated to provide the depth of information you’re seeking.

Say you want to research 1 Corinthians 13:1–3 to prepare a sermon or write an exegetical paper. Start digging and you’ll find a wealth of literature on these three verses—a daunting research challenge. With the Lexham Bible Guide: 1 Corinthians in hand, you hold the most relevant commentary on these verses, with scholars’ annotations and references right in line.

Why Context Is Key—and What to Do about It

Bible-in-7-Acts_cover_6In The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Peter Jackson devotes the first seven minutes to the story of the creation of the One Ring and the war against Sauron. Without this historical perspective, the audience would have no background for any of the events in this epic trilogy—context matters.

God’s story of redemption spans thousands of years, from the beginning of civilization to the destruction of the Second Temple and beyond. The Bible in Seven Acts brings the Bible’s historical and cultural context to life. Each volume provides comprehensive, in-depth analysis of biblical history’s most important people, places, and events.

Understand the context of Jesus’ birth

Say we want to understand the political and cultural climate in Judaea when Jesus was born. We could turn to Act VI: Herod to Jesus to find timelines that provide historical context for the reign of Herod the Great.

We quickly learn that Herod “quelled all rebellion, and . . . seized control of key Jewish institutions . . . using them in concert with his personal army to maintain control of his kingdom.” 

B7A_6-MessianicExpectations

This insight into the fragile relationship between Herod and the Jewish people helps us understand Jewish hopes and expectations during the intertestamental period.

Perfect for studying and teaching alike
