Early Praise for Lexham Methods Series

Lexham Methods SeriesThe Lexham Methods Series has been on quite the roller-coaster ride:

  • First, we moved it from Pre-Pub onto Community Pricing so that you could have a say in its final price.
  • Then we cut the price by over 75% so that even more of you could benefit from this amazing resource.
  • Most recently, we had some of our contributors tell you how the Lexham Methods Series will help make your Bible study better.

We’ve even created a print proof (above) of the first volume in the series, Textual Criticism of the Bible. Check it out!

Why people love it

Now that the book is in print, we’ve been able to send out advance copies to external readers—seminarians, professors, and other experts in the field—for feedback. Here are a few of the things they had to say:

“First, I am a huge fan of how this volume is organized. It is easy to read through in a few sittings or to use as a reference guide. The table of contents is easily navigated and labeled so that it is simple to find the subject matter you might be looking for.

“This volume is perhaps one of the most thorough yet accessible introductions to textual criticism available. For the most part it finds a good balance between scholarly treatment of the issues and accessibility to the average reader. The sections on both Old and New Testament textual criticism have sub-sections on how to do textual criticism. These sections themselves are reason enough to get the volume.”
—Matt McMains, PhD student at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and blogger at The Beginning of the End

“I thought it had good information and was very readable. I’m going to recommend it to the MDiv students I know who have an interest in textual criticism.”
—Ruth Whiteford, PhD student at Concordia Seminary St. Louis

“Organizationally, it’s fantastic. It addresses all the key issues without dumbing them down and yet balances scholarship and accessibility quite well.

“In short, readers of this book will learn why textual criticism matters and will be introduced to the method well enough to understand how it works and why it matters—as well as having a good foundation for further research.”
—Jim West, pastor of Petros Baptist Church, professor of biblical studies at Quartz Hill School of Theology, and blogger at Zwinglius Redivivus

Right now, the four-volume Lexham Methods Series is just $60 on Community Pricing—that’s $15 per volume. Place your bid today!

Your True Gold Savings: Upgrading vs. Buying Individual Resources

Gold-PackageLogos 5 base packages offer massive discounts compared to purchasing individual resources. For example, if you purchased every individual resource in Logos 5 Gold, you’d pay more than $10,000.00. With Gold, though, you can add all 1,076 resources for just $1,549.95—you’re getting thousands of dollars in savings!

And when you factor in your limited-time upgrade and ownership discounts, you can save even more.

Then, with Logos 5’s powerful tools, you can make new connections across your library, contextualize Scripture, find answers in seconds, and better understand the Word.

In a nutshell: upgrading your base package is the smartest, most affordable route to more rewarding Bible study.

What if I just want to pick and choose my resources?

L5 Upgrade SaleFair enough. So, let’s say you start with the basics: a few commentaries, a theological dictionary, a contextual resource, and handbooks on the Old and New Testaments. With this in mind, you could get these five resources:

  2. Kittel’s Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (10 vols.) | $199.95

Get 82% Off Ben Witherington’s Mobile Ed Course!

WitheringtonWe always aim to offer you the best, most important content at the best price. That’s why we’ve decided to keep Ben Witherington III’s Mobile Ed course on the Johannine literature on Community Pricing for a little while longer!

This is your chance to get the best price on a top-notch course from one of the world’s leading Johannine scholars. If you’ve already placed your bid, you’re in luck: now more people can bid, which means there’s a good chance your price will go even lower.

Study the wisdom of John

NT 221 walks you through a full third of the New Testament, covering several genres—you’ll encounter these familiar books with fresh eyes.

Dr. Witherington examines the Johannine literature not only as a group but also individually, with an emphasis on the social and historical context of each book. He packed three decades of research into this course, designed specifically for the Mobile Education format. You’ll get more from the Johannine literature, and you’ll deepen your understanding of God’s Word.

What makes Mobile Ed different

logos-mobile-education-nt221-the-wisdom-of-john-a-socio-rhetorical-commentary-on-johannine-literatureWorld-class instruction isn’t the only thing that sets Mobile Ed apart. Here are three key advantages to the format:

  1. Courses built for Logos. The centerpiece of the Mobile Ed courseware is the Logos digital library—the premier research tool for the twenty-first century. Reading lists link directly into a massive digital library; they complement the lectures, add depth, and provide richer perspectives. Self-assessments ensure that you’ve mastered the material and you’re staying on track. Mobile Ed is one of the only distance-education programs that integrates fully with an all-digital library.
  2. Education that meets you where you are. The Mobile Ed curriculum includes courses on theology, interpretation, church history, original-language study, counseling, ministry, and more. In addition to high-quality coursework, Mobile Ed brings the professors, the library, the visual demonstrations of software features, and the online classroom community directly to you, on your desktop, laptop, or mobile device.
  3. Practical insight for ministry. Mobile Ed doesn’t just teach you academic content; it teaches you to get more from Logos and study more efficiently. This combination of biblical learning and practical training helps you prepare better sermons, faster.

NT 221 is on Community Pricing for a little while longer, but it won’t be there forever.

What Makes Platinum So Valuable?

platinumOne of our most popular base packages is Platinum, which gives you all of Logos 5’s advanced tools, as well as a library of 1,370 resources that boasts a print value of more than $28,000. (Thanks to Logos’ bundling discounts, though, you won’t pay anywhere near that much!)

Why it’s special:

With any base package, you get a library that’s integrated with data, smart tools, and a clean, fast interface to access everything. All your books are interconnected, which means more cross-references between books, more valuable original-language data, and more relevant results in the reports you run—the Passage Guide, Exegetical Guide, Bible Word Study, and more.

Platinum shines because of the terrific resources it adds to your library. Here are just a few:

A Greek–English Lexicon of the New Testament (BDAG), 3rd ed.

“It goes without saying that all scholars and students of early Christianity will profit from BDAG and will want to own a copy of this fine new edition.”
Review of Biblical Literature, October 2002, by John T. Fitzgerald, University of Miami

“It is without doubt the best tool of its kind that exists in any language, and the present edition is decidedly superior to the earlier ones.”
Bryn Mawr Classical Review, June 2001, by Jerker Blomqvist, Department of Classics, Lund University

“In all, an excellent alternative format with distinct advantages that many will prefer to the print version.”
Religious Studies Review, April 2003, by Michael Holmes, Bethel College

Lenski’s Commentary on the New Testament

lenskis-commentary-on-the-new-testament“A great work of exegesis, every page the result of long meditation, based on rich scholarship, warm with holy reverence for the Word of God.”
Moody Monthly

“Lenski is one of the most helpful commentators on the New Testament you’ll find—especially for his knowledge of the original Greek text. No serious exegete should neglect his insights.”
The Discerning Reader

“A conservative, very extensive and generally helpful exposition based upon an exegesis of the Greek text. Armenian in doctrine, maintains a rigid approach to Greek grammar, and follows an amillennial interpretation of eschatology. Exceedingly helpful background material and abounds in good preaching values.”
—Cyril Barber, The Minister’s Library

Charles Simeon’s Horae Homileticae Commentary

“[Horae Homileticae] is the best place to go for researching Simeon’s theology. You can find his views on almost every key text in the Bible. . . . What Simeon experienced in the word was remarkable. It is so utterly different from the counsel that we receive today that it is worth looking at carefully.”
—John Piper, Desiring God

“One can easily find suggestive and practical helps in the preparation of sermons, devotional talks, young people’s messages, prayer meeting talks, Sunday School lessons and personal Bible study. The study of these outlines will contribute greatly to expository preaching.”
Bibliotheca Sacra, B.B. Siegel

“If Wilberforce is the most famous evangelical layman in the Church of England, then Simeon is the most famous evangelical clergyman.”
Who’s Who in Christian History

This Isn’t Your Average Bible Study: Get It for 50% Off!

not-your-average-bible-study-series-2Lexham Press recently announced a new nine-volume series: Not Your Average Bible Study. Right now, you can get it on Pre-Pub for 50% off!

Since its inception, Bible Study Magazine has included these studies in each issue. Over time, we’ve developed a new kind of Bible study—one that’s informed by scholarly discourse and ancient context, but readily applicable to your life today. When you dig into Scripture with these studies, you’ll find that your faith life is deeply affected.

Here’s Lexham Press’ publisher, John Barry, on the series’ origins:

 

Building a print book in a digital world

One of the unique things about this series is that it was designed with both print and digital in mind. When we create digital-first books, things like page count don’t matter. We can create books that are thousands of pages long or just a few pages long—there’s no back cover!

Designing for print completely flips that strategy. Not only do we have to think about page counts; we also have front and back covers to consider. We’ve responded by putting together volumes that are concise and laser-focused on application. And, as you can see, the print proofs look amazing:

Get 23% Off the Gospel according to the Old Testament Series

gospel-according-to-the-old-testament-seriesIf you’re studying Jesus’ background, life, and significance, it’s important to know how the Bible fits together as one unified story. One of the best ways to do that is to supplement your Bible reading with the writings of expert scholars.

Know the entire story of Jesus

The Gospel according to the Old Testament Series shows you how the Old Testament finds its fulfillment in the gospel of Jesus Christ—not just in occasional Messianic prophecies, but in the OT’s essential message. You’ll look at the Joseph story, the books of Judges, Zechariah, Hosea, and Daniel, the lives of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Old Testament presentation of Israel’s worship, and far more.

As D.A. Carson puts it:

“One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one ‘story line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way to meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.”

The series’ exegetically grounded exposition shows how all Old Testament doctrine and drama is about Christ, even when he’s not on stage.

Logos brings you far beyond the texts themselves. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and original-language texts, and important theological, exegetical, and redemptive-historical concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. You’ll be able to perform powerful searches by topic and find out what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about Old Testament typology, the apostolic hermeneutic, redemptive-historical interpretation, and more.

Pre-order it today and get 23% off!

For just a little while, you can pre-order the Gospel according to the Old Testament Series for 23% off! It’s shipping on July 9, though; after that, the price will go up.
