Free Book: What’s in the Word by Ben Witherington III

witw1We’ve teamed up with Baylor University Press to give you Ben Witherington III’s What’s in the Word: Rethinking the Socio-Rhetorical Character of the New Testament for free! Just use coupon code BW3BAYLOR to get your copy.

Understand Scripture in context

What’s in the Word, written in Witherington’s usual clear, clever style, is a collection of essays on topics like “oral texts,” pseudepigrapha, New Testament word studies in light of their socio-rhetorical backgrounds, and more. Preachers and teachers will especially appreciate how Witherington’s work helps establish exegetical study historically.

James D.G. Dunn once said that the autonomy of the biblical text is an illusion, and that Scripture will always be read in a context, whether modern or historical. In What’s in the Word, Witherington explains how the recognition of the oral and socio-rhetorical character of the New Testament and its environment necessitates a change in how we read the New Testament literature.

Use coupon code BW3BAYLOR through June 16 to get What’s in the Word for free!

    not sure if this is the right forum – apologies if not – but a bit miffed that my Libronix Digital Library is no longer available – I thought I could upgrade to Logos – but although what I have is ok so far – I have to buy a base package to get stuff I already have in Libronix. Am I getting this wrong? I am a lay preacher and long term unemployed (health) and can not afford umpteen pounds (sorry I'm in the UK) to purchase a lot of stuff I shall never use! just to get 'the features'.

  2. David, you might want to contact Logos sales. A minimal side-grade option might be what you need.

  3. John Grayston says

    Minimal upvgrade is not expensive and I still have access to all my library built up over the years.

  4. David, I had the same issues a few months ago. I contacted Logos customer service and they helped me install a minimal Logos 5 upgrade (not the base package) that has allowed me to continue to use my former Libronix Library. Hope this helps.

    ok thanks.
