Born 100 Years Ago Today: Leon Lamb Morris

LeonMorrisOne hundred years ago today, a theological powerhouse was born. Leon Lamb Morris poured his life into uncovering the deeper truths of Scripture. David Allan Hubbard (president emeritus, Fuller Theological Seminary) said, “Here was a man humble in his discipleship, unimpressed by his own learning, cordial in his friendship. His relaxed attitude toward his accomplishments particularly impressed me.”

Education and the gospel were his life. After teaching science for a short time, Morris was ordained by the Anglican church at 24. He received his ThL from the Australian College of Theology, where he was awarded the Hey Sharp Prize for being Australia’s top ThL candidate. He later received his PhD from Cambridge, where he eventually served as warden of Tyndale House and principal of Ridley College. His academic prowess was paralleled by an equally passionate ministry, including years as a missionary in the Australian outback.

“. . . a legion of Bible students have been convinced of the truth and power of the Gospel by Morris’ scholarship.”
—David Allan Hubbard

Hubbard said that for those who knew him, Morris represented a potent blend of “scholarly acumen, pastoral experience, innate commonsense, [and] keen concern for persons.” He once reminisced, “At heart, administration is the service of people—not the shuffling of paper. At such service Principal Morris excels.”

Experience his legacy

the-new-international-commentary-on-the-new-testamentMorris published over 40 books, including the commentary Christianity Today called “the best commentary on any book of the Bible by an evangelical in recent decades,” The Gospel according to John. Morris spent 10 years working on the volume, which United Evangelical hailed as “a masterpiece of scholarship and readability.”

Morris’ extended treatment of John gives you nearly 900 pages of exposition. You can get this powerful commentary in The New International Commentary on the New Testament. Likewise, Morris’ The First and Second Epistles to the Thessalonians is at the forefront of Thessalonian studies; Evangelical Quarterly says it’s “as readable as it is instructive.” Through the end of the month, you can get this invaluable work for 31% off as part of our March sale.

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.

A price this low won’t last long—bid on your copy today!

2 Essential Theology Tools

Crossway Classic CommentariesGood theology begins with both biblical and cultural study.

After all, isn’t theology but a bridge to understanding God inside and outside our own cultural context? Theology is made for man, not for God; it’s through understanding cultural context that we move from thinking about theology to living it every day.

The pursuit of theology isn’t limited to students and professors. We’re all called to live and grow in the Word of God, and yet we all live in cultures that grow and develop under not-so-Christian influences.

The remedy? Study the Word of God. Then study the culture around you and become aware of the lenses through which you view the Word and the world.

Here are two series that will help you meet these goals:

1. Crossway Classic Commentaries (26 vols.)

Doing solid Bible study means consulting solid commentaries and study Bibles, and biblical exegesis that’s disconnected from the past is disconnected from the majority of Christendom. The Crossway Classic Commentaries series helps keep traditional interpretations of the Bible alive in the modern age. Alister McGrath and J. I. Packer bring the voices of the past to contemporary readers, testifying to the unchanging meaning of the Bible throughout the ages. Now, with the inclusion of Martin Luther’s recently released volume on Galatians, this 26-volume series covers 33 books of the Bible, all expounded by the legendary exegetes themselves—Thomas Manton, John Calvin, Charles Hodge, and J. C. Ryle, to name a few.

Keep your study of the Word planted firmly in the body of Christian history. Start studying the Crossway Classic Commentaries today for less than $26/month.

2. Engaging and Exegeting Culture Series (14 vols.)

Once you have a solid grip on the meaning of the biblical text, it’s time to bring that truth to everyday life. But that’s much easier said than done, and “everyday life” can mean many different things. That’s why Baker Academic produces the Engaging and Exegeting Culture Series—it’s a scholarly attempt to look at day-to-day living from a biblical perspective. Theology, argues Kevin J. Vanhoozer in Everyday Theology, is both the study of the Word and the application of that Word to the world. He goes further, saying:

“The reason why theology must study God and contemporary culture is the same reason why preaching must connect both with the biblical text and the listener’s context: because disciples do not follow the gospel in a vacuum but wend their Christian way through particular times and places, each with its own problems and possibilities.”

Thus, Christians must understand culture from a biblical perspective in order to produce a biblical theology (and application) of it.

That leaves us with a very important question: how do you exegete culture?

You’ll have to dig into this series to find out! For just $27.50/month or less, begin reading these volumes today. The price you see is unique to you—you won’t be charged for the volumes you’ve already purchased. (Just make sure you’re signed in.)

How do you engage both the culture around you and the Word of God? Let us know in the comments!

New: 24-Month Payment Plans!

Logos 5You’re probably on a budget. Pastors often have a fixed amount they can spend on books every month, which makes any large purchase seem daunting. Students face a variety of costs—school, books, supplies. Everyone deals with day-to-day living expenses.

Big-ticket items, no matter how vital, can seem tough to budget for—that is, when you purchase them all at once.

The perfect budget-friendly solution

We introduced payment plans to address this problem, and now we’re sweetening the deal.

We’ve dropped the threshold for 18-month payment plans down to $900—that’s $1,000 less than it used to be! And now you can even go up to a 24-month plan on any purchase over $1,900.

What does this mean for you?

Let’s say you want to purchase Gold on a payment plan. Normally, you’d have to put it on a 12-month plan, and your cost would be $134/month. Now you can opt for an 18-month payment plan, and your monthly cost would drop to just $91!

But wait—there’s more. If you went with a 24-month payment plan, you’d be able to get Platinum for just $4 more a month! Who wouldn’t take that deal? You’d be getting a library worth $28,000 in print for just a few extra dollars each month. Or you could stick with Gold and add a few bundles or commentaries—as long as the cost ends up being $1,900 or more, you qualify for a 24-month payment plan.

Take advantage of a payment plan today!

If you’ve been on the fence about buying a Logos 5 base package, now’s the perfect time. Take advantage of our new payment-plan options—get Logos 5 today.
