Eerdmans Commentary Collection (13 vols.)

If you’re looking for thoughtful, scholarly insight into the Scriptures, look no further than the 13-volume Eerdmans Commentary Collection. Written by the some of the most respected scholars in biblical studies, this collection will enlighten and inspire you for years to come.

Order it before Monday, December 2, to get the best Pre-Pub savings!

This collection includes:

1 & 2 Timothy and Titus by Robert W. Wall

“I commend Rob Wall for offering us, and the wider church, his canonical readings of the Pastoral Epistles. Rob does not shy away from the many tough passages in these letters, always trying to present what he sees as the ‘plain sense’ of the text in relation to other historical, ecclesial, and cultural understandings. The combination of commentary and reading by the ‘rule of faith’—supplemented by three interesting case studies—provides a thorough canonical understanding of these crucial letters from the standpoint of one who is immersed in what it means to understand the Bible as the church’s book.”
Stanley E. Porter, president, dean of theology, and professor of New Testament, McMaster Divinity College

Mark: A Commentary on His Apology for the Cross, vols. 1 & 2 by Robert H. Gundry

“A major contribution to Markan scholarship . . . An indispensable resource for scholars, students, and pastors.”
John R. Kohlenberger III, lecturer, consultant, and adjunct instructor in Bible and biblical languages, Multnomah Bible College and Western Seminary

Matthew: A Commentary, vols. 1 & 2 by Frederick Dale Bruner

“This is the kind of commentary that I most want—a theological wrestling with Scripture. Frederick Dale Bruner grapples with the text not only as a technical exegete (although he also does that very well) but as a church theologian, caring passionately about what these words tell us about God and ourselves. Here he places his considerable teaching gifts at the service of the Christian community, caring as much about us as he cares about the text. His Matthew commentary is in the grand traditions of Augustine, Calvin, and Luther—expansive and leisurely, loving the text, the people in it, and the Christians who read it.”
Eugene H. Peterson, emeritus professor of spiritual theology, Regent College

A Commentary on Micah by Bruce K. Waltke

“No one knows the prophecy of Micah more thoroughly than Bruce Waltke. No one is more deeply ingrained in the secondary literature that discusses and debates this prophet. No one is better positioned to be a helpful guide to the correct interpretation and application of this marvelous book. It’s rare when a commentary is helpful to scholars, clergy, and laypeople alike, but Waltke has accomplished this masterfully.”
Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College

Right now, you can pre-order the 13-volume Eerdmans Commentary Collection on its own and save over $70, or pre-order it as part of the 309-volume Eerdmans Bible Reference Bundle and save $1,000. But hurry: both Pre-Pub prices go up Monday, December 2!

On Remembrance and Veterans Day

Veteran's DayAt the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the hostilities of WWI came to an end. Although the war didn’t officially end for another 7 months, countries around the globe commemorate the armistice on Remembrance Day.

This special day is acknowledged throughout Great Britain, Canada, India, South Africa,  Australia, and New Zealand. It’s also observed by other countries who fought alongside the British Empire during WWI, like Kenya, Bermuda, Barbados, and Mauritius.

On November 11, 1919, President Wilson called for the United States to recognize the first Armistice day:

“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”

In the summer of 1926, the United States Congress passed a resolution officially recognizing Armistice Day with the following resolution:

Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation of the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations, which we hope may never again be severed, and

Whereas it is fitting that the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations; and

Whereas the legislatures of twenty-seven of our States have already declared November 11 to be a legal holiday: Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), that the President of the United States is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples.

In 1954, after suffering through WWII (the largest deployment America had ever seen) and the Korean War, veterans’ organizations appealed to the 86th Congress to modify Armistice Day to honor the American veterans of all wars. Congress responded by changing Armistice Day to Veterans Day.

Whether or not you live in a country that observes Remembrance Day or Veterans Day, take a few moments today to thank someone who has served your country and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Canada’s New Logos Ambassador: Greg Monette

gregToday’s post is by Greg Monette, Logos’ new Canada market manager.

Over the next few months, Logos will increase its focus on serving the thousands of Canadian users who already know the software’s benefits firsthand, as well as the thousands of future users who will soon experience them.

A lifelong Canadian resident (currently living in Nova Scotia), I was hired to bring a fresh perspective to the Canadian market. Canada’s been a strong supporter of Logos from the beginning, and I’m looking forward to serving as the ambassador between Logos and my home country. After all, behind the US, no other nation has more Logos users than Canada.

I received my Master of Divinity and my Master of Arts (theology) from Acadia Divinity College in Nova Scotia, and I’m a PhD candidate in New Testament at the University of Bristol in England. I’m a massive fan of Canadian hockey, and I’m even more passionate about helping people discover the tools they need to understand the Bible.

How can I serve you?

In the months and years ahead, this new role will bring many challenges and joys. I need your help! If you’re Canadian and you have a desire to help others understand Scripture, I’d love to hear your ideas about how we can help multitudes of Canadians get more out of their Bible study with Logos. Head over to the forums and introduce yourself. I’ll respond as quickly as I can!

Helping people grow deeper in their knowledge of the Bible is one of the greatest privileges I can think of, and I’m excited to help Canada connect with Logos.
