How to Get the Best Deal on Books You Love

XL_Master_BundleTopic-specific bundles are one of the very best ways to build your library—these carefully curated collections let you add hand-picked books on the subjects you love.

Because they’re so focused, they’re already really good deals: you can take full advantage of Logos’ bundling discounts (which make the whole more affordable than the sum of its parts), without adding books you don’t want.

But, for just a little while, you can save even more—way more.

Here’s how:

1. Take 50% off bundles

Most of the year, saving 50% on bundles is an exclusive perk reserved for base package owners—you normally can’t get that special discount unless you’re buying a base package. But this Christmas, you can take 50% off bundles without the big-ticket purchase!

If you really care about a topic—Paul’s letters, let’s say—you know you’re going to end up accumulating years’ worth of books on Pauline studies. Why not proactively get them right now, start studying your new library today, and save 50% over the long run?

2. Take advantage of Dynamic Pricing

Of course, if you’re deeply interested in a topic, you probably already own lots of books in the field. Good—that’s where bundles really shine. Dynamic Pricing means you won’t pay twice for books you already own; instead, you’ll get a custom discount based on your current library. It’s especially valuable if you already own bundles from last year. Let’s say you own the Master Bundle: when you upgrade to this year’s expanded version, which gives you tons of new content, you’ll save a remarkable 62%! Bundles were a smart investment then, and upgrading to version 2 is a smart investment now.

3. Get lots of books

You already know that bundling books is a much better deal than buying them one by one. Bundling bundles is a much better deal, too. The Master Bundle, ver. 2 rounds out your library with a vast selection of premium content: 1,588 volumes in the XL version. If you chose that XL library, you’d get 69% off what you’d pay for the individual resources at their regular prices. And that’s before both Dynamic Pricing and your extra 50% off!

If you pass on the Master Bundle, you’ll still benefit from bundling discounts. Most bundles come in sizes small through extra-large, so you’re in charge of both the content and the price point. Pick the largest size you can and you’ll get the best bundling deal:

The takeaway? Short of upgrading your base package, there’s simply no better way to build your library, especially if you’re interested in a few specific topics. And the more books you add, the more you save. But you can’t wait—these triple discounts won’t be around for long.

Don’t miss this special opportunity: take 50% off bundles on the subjects you love.

Now Available: Evangelical Exegetical Commentary on Esther

Esther CoverThe story is a familiar one, made popular by Sunday school teachers, novels, and movies: her people threatened with extinction, Queen Esther must summon the courage to approach the Persian king Xerxes in order to save the Jews. But is the book of Esther only about being brave, or is there more to it?

Anthony Tomasino, director of the biblical studies program and associate professor of Bible, Old Testament, and Hebrew at Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana, examines this well-known story in Evangelical Exegetical Commentary: Esther. He studies the Hebrew text to bring out motifs of feasting, sovereignty, assertiveness, and reversal.

He also investigates the book’s connection with the celebration of Purim, the issue of assimilation into a foreign culture, the theme of the invincibility of the Jewish people, and the conspicuous absence of God’s name. He does all this while also stepping back to examine the big picture through the lens of biblical theology, helping readers apply the text to today by giving applications and devotional implications.

Evangelical Exegetical Commentary: Esther is the most recent volume in the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (EEC) series. If you have purchased the EEC, this volume will download to your account automatically.

The other currently available EEC volumes are 1, 2, & 3 John, Exodus, Ezra & Nehemiah, JamesColossians & Philemon, and Ecclesiastes & Song of Songs. Buy the whole set now and save!

Get 50% Off 300 Christmas Quotations and Prayers

Quotes_Book-Cover300x200Christmas is coming. The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and pastors are planning services that anticipate and celebrate the coming of God in the flesh. It’s a unique challenge every year: in an environment that too often focuses on “Christmas spirit” rather than the Holy Spirit, how can churches reach people in fresh ways with the good news of Jesus’ birth?

To help meet this annual challenge, we’re offering 300 Christmas Quotations and Prayers. Over the past year, we released 300 Quotations for Preachers, 400 Prayers for Preachers, and 1,500 Quotations for Preachers (a five-volume collection divided by church era). In the same vein as those editions, 300 Quotations and Prayers for Christmas:

  • Provides material for service planning and sermon prep—All quotations and prayers are organized by Scripture reference and theme (like Birth of Jesus, Epiphany, or Fulfilled Prophecy). This means that if you’re preaching or focusing your worship service on a Scripture or topic, you can quickly find relevant quotations and prayers. This saves you the hours you might otherwise spend hunting through your library.
  • Makes sharing easyEach quotation and prayer is accompanied by a professionally designed slide that contains an excerpt, making it easy to share.
  • Updates language—For some quotations and prayers, archaic language (like “thee,” “thou,” and “beseech”) has been updated, so they’re ready to use in a modern context.
  • Takes you to the source—Each prayer includes a bibliographic citation, enabling you to track it down in its original context.

300 Quotations and Prayers for Christmas features 250 quotations, 50 prayers, and 30 Scripture passages, all relating to Christmas, Advent, and Epiphany. We’ve also included five benedictions. Rather than going through the Pre-Publication process, we’re making it available immediately. Just use coupon code STOCKINGSTUFFERS to get it for 50% off!

With more than 3 million books sold and several decades of preaching and teaching under his belt, J. I. Packer is one of the most influential evangelicals in North America. In the J. I. Packer Bundle, he takes on some of the core tenets of Christianity: the Ten Commandments and the Apostle’s Creed. His revealing examinations tackle common misconceptions and give you a fresh perspective on Scripture.

What you get:

  1. Keeping the Ten Commandments: Packer dissects God’s intent for the Ten Commandments, arguing that that they’re not meant to be an antiquated list of legalisticKeeping the Ten Commandments rules, but instead God’s blueprint for living the best life possible.
  2. Affirming the Apostle’s Creed: Packer analyzes each phrase in the Apostle’s Creed—one of Christianity’s most loved and eloquent summaries. Packer’s discussion forces you to pause, reflect on each statement, and discover what it truly means to profess your faith.
  3.  A Grief Sanctified: In this book, Packer takes you on an emotional journey through six of life’s most powerful experiences and sensations: love, faith, death, grief, hope, and patience. Drawing on Richard Baxter’s poignant memoir about the passing of his wife, Packer reveals how Scripture guides us to cope with the tumult of emotions life throws at us.

Don’t wait: this bundle expires on December 7 at 7:59 a.m. (EST)! Get the J. I. Packer Bundle for only $9.99, and then check Vyrso.com for the next 24-hour bundle!
