Göttingen Septuagint on Pre-Pub

Göttingen Septuagint (64 Vols.)If you’re into studying the Septuagint—and we think you should be—you’re going to love what just hit the Pre-Pub page!

The Göttingen Septuagint (a.k.a. Septuaginta: Vetus Testamentum Graecum. Auctoritate Academiae Scientiarum Gottingensis Editum) is the most important edition of the Greek translation of the Old Testament ever published. At present it spans 24 print volumes and nearly 7,000 pages, setting the bar high for text-critical studies.

For optimal use in Logos Bible Software, these 24 print volumes will be split into 65 digital resources. This means you’ll be able to view the Greek text right alongside of the apparatus, and in several cases multiple Greek translations with multiple apparatuses. By linking them all together, they will stay in sync as you scroll or jump from passage to passage.

This is without question one of the best deals that we’ve ever had on Pre-Pub. The print set could easily run you $3,000. But for a limited time, we’re making it available on Pre-Pub for only $299.95. For more than 90% off the print cost, you can add this definitive critical edition of the Septuagint to your Libronix digital library. So if you are serious about studying the LXX—or its use in the NT by Jesus and the Apostles—do be sure to check it out.

Mark Driscoll Comes to Logos Bible Software

Logos Bible Software came to Mark Driscoll several years ago, and he’s a fan. Now Mark Driscoll comes to Logos. We just launched two brand new Driscoll titles: Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1 & 2 Peter and the Mark Driscoll Sermon Archive.

Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1 & 2 Peter, by Mark Driscoll [DOWNLOAD]Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter

Trial is a nearly 200-page Bible study guide on Peter’s letters. It was written to supplement Mark’s current series that he’s preaching at Mars Hill. If you attend Mars Hill or just like to listen to Mark’s preaching via the internet, adding this title to your Logos Bible Software library would be the perfect complement.

But it doesn’t have to be used in conjunction with the sermon series. Used by itself, it would make excellent material to work through in your personal Bible study, your family Bible times, your small group, or your Sunday school class. Pastors will get loads of practical applications for their preaching on these important letters.

It’s available for immediate download for only $9.95, but you can get it for free through the end of March when you purchase a subscription to Bible Study Magazine. Visit BibleStudyMagazine.com for all of the details.

Mark Driscoll Sermon Archive

Mark Driscoll Sermon ArchiveJust as cool, if not cooler, is the new Mark Driscoll Sermon Archive.

Driscoll has preached through fifteen books of the Bible and has spoken at well over a hundred conferences around the U.S. and world. These audio sermons are being transcribed, formatted, tagged, and integrated into the most power digital library system available. There’s no better way to find out what he says on a passage or an issue than the Mark Driscoll Sermon Archive.

Mark Driscoll hits today’s issues head on. This collection is sure to provide you with a wealth of relevant information on hot topics. The Mark Driscoll Sermon Archive is currently available for only $89.95, so be sure to place your pre-order soon and lock in the lowest possible price.

Darwin’s 200th Birthday

On February 12, 1809, two hundred years ago today, Charles Darwin was born. It’s difficult to overstate the impact that his theory of evolution has had over the last 150 years.

The book by which he is best known, Origin of Species (or On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life), is available in our Harvard Classics and Fiction Collection (71 Vols.), which is currently on Pre-Pub. If you haven’t yet pre-ordered this set, be sure to check it out. It’s an incredible value—about $1.41 per volume!

In light of this important day and the impact Darwin has had on the relationship between science and the Christian faith, we put together a Creation and Science Product Guide, which features all of our titles on creation, evolution, and science.

In the product guide you’ll find three collections and almost 30 individual titles:

The titles are written from a variety of perspectives and will help you grapple with the relationship between faith and science. So be sure to check it out and see which ones might be good additions to your library.

By the way, if you purchased the B. B. Warfield Collection (20 Vols.), you might want to read Warfield’s article “Charles Darwin’s Religious Life: A Sketch in Spiritual Biography” (The Works of Benjamin B. Warfield, Volume 9: Studies in Theology [Bellingham, WA: Logos, 2008], 541-81). It’s a fascinating look into Darwin’s spiritual journey.

Happy International Septuagint Day

Okay, so we’re a couple of days late, but we didn’t want to miss out on International Septuagint Day, which apparently was this past Sunday.

We’ve addressed the LXX on the blog a couple of times in the last year, so I thought I’d point you to those posts just in case you missed them. They nicely illustrate the benefits of studying the Greek translation of the Old Testament.

To celebrate International Septuagint Day we’re offering a 25% discount on our Lexham Greek-English Interlinear Septuagint—the first ever Greek-English interlinear of the LXX available for any Bible software platform. Use coupon code LXX during checkout. The discount is good through the end of Valentine’s Day PST.

To see all the resources we have available on the Septuagint, be sure to check out our newly updated Product Guide to Resources for Septuagint Study. For the new titles, see especially the Additional Titles section.

Counting the Ten Commandments

Counting the Ten Commandments -- at BibleStudyMagazine.comThe January-February issue of Bible Study Magazine had a very helpful article by Dr. Michael Heiser on the Ten Commandments (pages 21-23). In it he discusses the various ways different religious groups have divided the commandments. While everyone agrees that there were only 10, there is disagreement surrounding which verses go together and whether some portions constitute one commandment or two separate commandments. A helpful chart lays out these differences that exist among Judaism, most of Protestantism and the Orthodox church, and Roman Catholicism and Lutheranism.

If you haven’t yet subscribed to Bible Study Magazine, it’s not too late to get a copy of the January-February issue—but the deadline is today (Thursday, February 5). So you need to subscribe very soon! All orders placed tomorrow will start with the March-April issue.

Want a sneak peek of what’s inside? The full text and the chart of Mike’s article, “Counting the Ten Commandments,” is now available at BibleStudyMagazine.com.

Wallace, Runge, Decker, and Conrad Talk Greek

If you enjoy Greek grammar and linguistics, you’ll definitely want to read the fascinating discussion that’s been taking place over on Steve Runge’s blog, NT Discourse.

Steve’s post Markedness, Part 2 is what got things going. Rod Decker, Daniel Wallace, and Steve had a profitable three-way exchange in the comments.

Steve followed up with a second post What does ‘syntactic force’ mean? The back and forth continued in the comments with Carl Conrad (of the B-Greek list), Daniel Wallace, and Steve.

While Steve’s perspective is on the surface quite a bit different from the way Greek is taught in most Bible colleges and seminaries, there is actually significant agreement between well-respected Greek grammarians like Wallace, Conrad, and Decker and Steve.

Wallace, whose Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics has been used by tens of thousands of Greek students, sums it up well when he says, “It shows that we [grammarians and linguists] can cooperate in these projects and learn from each other. I believe that both sides have much to offer.”

If you’re interested in Greek studies and where they are going, be sure to read the dialog.
