Introducing the 125-Volume Romans Collection

the-romans-collection-125-volumesWe heard you liked Paul’s epistle to the Romans.

So we handpicked 125 diverse and key volumes in the study, interpretation, translation, and exegesis of Paul’s magnum opus. We made sure to encompass a wide variety of traditions, perspectives, and levels of scholarly depth to create a well-rounded collection.

What exactly is it?

The Romans Collection is an enormous collection of modern commentaries, classic commentaries, and monographs that study Romans’ socio-historical context, Greek text, Pauline thought, Jewish background—you get the idea.

We’ve pulled together commentaries from Pillar, the New American Commentary, the College Press NIV Commentary, the Socio-Rhetorical Commentary, the International Critical Commentary, and many more.

This collection even features classics—Charles Hodge, John Calvin, Henry Cowles, J.B. Lightfoot, Charles Gore, Albert Barnes, and many others.

It also includes perspectives from almost every Christian tradition imaginable (Evangelical, Baptist, Methodist/Wesleyan, Anglican, Roman Catholic, Reformed, Charismatic/Pentecostal, Lutheran, Unitarian, and more).

That’s a lot of stuff on Romans

Yes, but we’re just getting warmed up. These statistics just scratch the surface:

  • Over 90 volumes are commentaries
  • Over 40 of those commentaries were published in the past 40 years
  • Over 40,000 pages contain verse-by-verse commentary (imagine that in your Passage Guide)
  • Over 30 volumes deal specifically with Paul based on the context or content of Romans

That must be expensive . . .

Individually, these volumes would cost you $2,838.50 from our store, but bundled together with an introductory discount, you save more than 70%! Right now, you can get this expansive for only $749.95. Don’t have $749.95 sitting around? Monthly payments come to around $67/month for just 12 months.

If $67/month is still too steep, don’t be surprised to find your personal price a bit lower. Dynamic Pricing can significantly lower your price if you already own any of this collection’s volumes. You’ll only pay for the books you don’t already own in Logos.

Visit Logos.com and sign in to see your personalized discount.

So, what’s the catch?

If it seems like a dream come true, we hate to burst your bubble, but this dream won’t last forever. The Romans Collection’s price is increasing to $1,199.95 on October 24, so act fast to secure these savings!

3 Ways to Get a Closer Look at the New Testament

stewart-custer-collectionYou already know about the New International Greek Testament Commentary. You’ve pored over Baker’s Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament. Now you’re looking for something in the same vein: exegesis, application, and Greek word and phrase studies. But, with 40,000 books to choose from, where do you turn?

Good news: we have suggestions!

1. Stewart Custer Collection

Regularly $167.95use coupon code CUSTER10 to get it for $149.95 through July 22

Stewart Custer is an underappreciated treasure. This unique collection gives you numerous commentaries on the New Testament, as well as guides to interpretation and exegesis. It emphasizes pastoral insight and practical application: ideal if you want to home in on helping others day to day.

ellicotts-commentaries-on-st-pauls-epistles2. Ellicott’s Commentaries on St. Paul’s Epistles

Regularly $82.95use coupon code ELLICOTT45 to get it for $44.95 through July 22

These frequently overlooked commentaries lead you through Paul’s letters verse by verse: each zooms in on the Greek, illuminating the translators’ choices, grammatical context and relevance, and the thought implied by the Greek phrasing. They’re excellent for a student or pastor aiming to apply more Greek word and phrase studies—someone who wants to master Paul’s logical structure, perhaps.

3. Guides to New Testament Exegesis

Many commentaries provide verse-by-verse interpretation, exegesis, and application—and stop right there. Baker’s Guides to New Testament Exegesis Collection provides something more: it shows you the key interpretive approaches to each NT book, including the history of interpretation, the literary context, the style and authorship of each book, and insights from the Greek. If you aim to teach the Bible, you shouldn’t pass this one up.

All these collections have recently been updated: just visit the product pages (and make sure you’re signed in!) to see which volumes are new to you. With Dynamic Pricing, you’ll only pay for the books you don’t already own. And, as always, interest-free payment plans make budgeting even easier!

Studying Romans? Here’s Why You Should Look to the Old Testament

romans-through-history-and-culture-seriesPaul’s letter to the Romans is as important as it is dense. In precise, nuanced Greek, Paul articulates Christianity’s theological foundations.

So how do we decipher the meaning of this ancient, foreign text? Here we have arguably the key to understanding the faith—and it’s packed with references to Jewish covenantal law, natural law, and the cultural background shared by Paul’s Greco-Roman audience, all in a language marked by countless dialects.

How can anyone hope to really understand this essential treatise?

Get ready to let Logos do the heavy lifting. Here are four reasons a strong background in the Old Testament will be an important asset in your study of Romans:

1. Paul was a rabbi

I’ve never met a rabbi before—let alone one from the first century—but Paul’s participation in the highest form of Jewish devotion and scholarship introduces an enormous package of context that you wouldn’t find in, say, Mark or Luke. Paul’s rabbinic background affected his interpretation of the prophets of the Old Testament—and you can bet he had the whole of Torah memorized.

2. Christianity: the prophesied Jewish eschatology?

Since Christianity is founded on the texts and traditions of Judaism, understanding how Judaism sees itself ending (its own eschatology) is key to understanding Christianity and the church. And what of the Jewish eschatology discourse from Romans 8:18–11:36? Paul introduces Old Testament quote after Old Testament quote in support of his theological conclusions—but how familiar are we with what he’s quoting?

3. Paul speaks often of the “Jew and Greek”

In Romans 3, Paul speaks often of what it means to be Jewish and what it means to be Gentile or Greek (and, ultimately, what it means to be Christian) in the first century. Is the weight of this argument lost on us? Perhaps some of it—but, by studying the Old Testament, we can get a perspective on the ethnic identity adapted by Israel over the centuries.

4. The Abraham discourse of Romans 4

How can we understand Paul’s argument for justification in chapter 5 if we don’t know, from chapter 4, who Abraham was? I don’t mean the bedtime-story Abraham—I mean Israel’s Abraham, the father of nations and the beginning of the Jewish ethnic heritage.

Let’s study the Old Testament and Romans!

Four of our most recently updated collections emphasize Romans or the Old Testament. Here’s how each can improve your study:

baker-walter-c-kaiser-collectionBaker Walter C. Kaiser Collection (6 vols.)

Mission in the Old Testament: Israel as a Light to the Nations is an important volume for understanding Jewish identity and God’s mandate to the Jewish people. If you plan on studying the latter half of Romans (8–16), this kind of background information might be useful. But it’s even more useful if you’re a pastor or student: numerous volumes cover teaching, preaching, and exegesis for the church.

Romans through History and Culture Series (5 vols.)

Romans was one of the theological texts at the epicenter of theological debate during the Protestant Reformation. The Romans through History and Culture Series takes you through the interpretation and application of Romans, from medieval and ancient times to today, to provide both a broad and a precise view of how Romans was read by Augustine and the early Church Fathers.

teach-the-text-commentary-seriesTeach the Text Commentary (6 vols.)

Teach the Text: Romans by C. Marvin Pate provides an outstanding high-level overview. Pate discusses Romans’ major hermeneutical issues, including the New Perspective on Paul (at Romans 3). You don’t need to know Greek to understand this, and even if you read it fluently, the rhetorical analysis will be invaluable.

Works of N.T. Wright (48 vols.)

Paul for Everyone: Romans parts 1 and 2 provide readable, scholarly approaches to Romans. N.T. Wright adapts the New Perspective on Paul very naturally, if that interests you—but he doesn’t hit you over the head with it, so you can disagree and still find value in his commentary. This collection also contains endless discourse on the man himself, so if you’re itching to study Paul, look no further!

No other work covers so much: you’ll get over 8,000 pages, most of them written by Bonhoeffer himself.

4. William Mitchell Ramsay Collection

W.M. Ramsay, an atheist, set out to Asia Minor to demonstrate the implausibility of the New Testament. He ended up affirming its historical integrity. This expanded 24-volume collection gives you a fascinating window into the Holy Land, unearths valuable proofs of the testimonies of Luke and Paul, and follows Ramsay’s journey from atheism to faith.

5. Baker Millard J. Erickson Collection

A leader in contemporary theology, Millard J. Erickson provides tightly argued theological teachings. Along with the latest edition of Christian Theology, this collection (now expanded to eight volumes) contains his contemporary theological books on the Godhead, eschatology, and postmodernism. You’ll see how theology is shifting during the present generation, and you’ll get a solid backdrop of core Christian teaching with which to analyze current theological trends.
