The Lexham Bible Dictionary: A Growing, Dynamic Resource

In March, Encyclopædia Britannica Inc. announced that, after publishing encyclopedias for the last 200 years, they would not be printing books any longer. With information changing so rapidly, their encyclopedias were obsolete as soon as they were printed. Instead of focusing on physical books, Encyclopædia Britannica made the decision to focus on digital editions.

The beauty of electronic resources is that they don’t have to be static—they can be dynamic and flexible! As a world leader in electronic publishing, we’ve known this for a while. Take, for example, the Lexham Bible Dictionary.

The Lexham Bible Dictionary includes more than 1,500,000 words in 2,700-plus articles from over 250 different contributors. Not only can you expect in-depth, scholarly content—you can count on new articles and additions to existing articles developed in response to new discoveries, perspectives, and controversies. With the Lexham Bible Dictionary, you’re getting the latest information and the freshest perspective.

The Lexham Bible Dictionary is part of the bundle of resources that come with the Faithlife Study Bible. And you can get the Faithlife Study Bible for free with the coupon code FREE—through March, 2014. Once you download the Faithlife Study Bible, the Lexham Bible Dictionary will be part of your Bible study notes and a stand-alone resource you can access through Logos 4, with our mobile apps (iOS and Android), and on Biblia.com.

Free Book of the Month: The Epistle to the Hebrews

“Every student of the Epistle to the Hebrews must feel that it deals in a peculiar degree with the thoughts and trials of our own time.”

Thus begins Brooke Foss Westcott’s The Epistle to the Hebrews, August’s Free Book of the Month.

This classic reference work takes you deep into Hebrews through extensive verse-by-verse exegetical commentary and multiple dissertations on related subjects. An extensive introduction covers this important epistle’s title, history, and purpose.

“Bishop Westcott’s treatise is, and will doubtless finally take its place as, a classical work. This it deserves, not only from the fulness and completeness of the materials he has assembled, and the refined and scholarly judgment with which they are handled, but from the clear, the just, and the measured views which he takes on all the difficult problems connected with the Epistle. There is a wonderful charm too in his wider views, regarding the deep subjects treated of in the Epistle.”—The Church Quarterly Review, 1891

Westcott studied at Cambridge’s Trinity College from which he graduated in 1848. He stayed at Trinity, where, in 1849, he attained fellowship and was ordained as a deacon and priest. He received honorary degrees from Oxford (1881) and Edinburgh (1883). In 1890, he became bishop of Durham.

His Hebrews commentary is part of the 14-volume Classic Commentaries on the Greek New Testament. Enter to win this commentary set—worth $239.95—at our Free Book of Month page. And download your free book today!

3 Crucial Lessons from William Wilberforce

William Wilberforce, British politician and prominent abolitionist, died July 29, 1833. Here are three lessons from the man whose faith helped end slavery in England and inspire America’s abolitionist movement.

1. Experience life through the lens of faith.

Prior to his conversion, William was not known as an industrious individual. As a student at St. John’s College, he invested most of his time in social activities and idleness. William committed himself to frivolity, even after being elected into Parliament at 21. As he said himself, “the first years in Parliament I did nothing—nothing to any purpose.”

After a sudden conversion experience, William began to see his work (and world) in a whole new light.

“The gospel freely admitted makes a man happy. It gives him peace with God, and makes him happy in God. It gives to industry a noble, contented look which selfish drudgery never wore; and from the moment that a man begins to do his work for his Saviour’s sake, he feels that the most ordinary employments are full of sweetness and dignity, and that the most difficult are not impossible. And if any of you, my friends, is weary with his work, if dissatisfaction with yourself or sorrow of any kind disheartens you, if at any time you feel the dull paralysis of conscious sin, or the depressing influence of vexing thoughts, look to Jesus, and be happy. Be happy, and your joyful work will prosper well.”

2. Bloom where you are planted.

William struggled with his Parliament position in light of his new faith. Religious enthusiasm was not socially accepted in high society, and he worried about finding himself at odds with his peers. For advice, he reached out to Anglican clergyman John Newton (writer of “Amazing Grace”). Newton responded by telling William, “It is hoped and believed that the Lord has raised you up for the good of his church and for the good of the nation.” This gave William the encouragement he needed.

As he later wrote in his diary, “My walk I am sensible is a public one; my business is in the world; and I must mix in assemblies of men, or quit the post which Providence seems to have assigned me.”

His decision to stay in Parliament would help change the nation and end the slave trade.

3. Have the stamina to pursue your God-given passions until the end.

In William’s time, more than 11 million people had been captured in Africa and forced into labor in the West Indies, with Britain controlling the majority of that slave trade. Putting an end to Britain’s role in this unacceptable practice became William’s driving passion, no matter the cost to himself.

“As soon as ever I had arrived thus far in my investigation of the slave trade, I confess to you sir, so enormous, so dreadful, so irremediable did its wickedness appear that my own mind was completely made up for the abolition. A trade founded in iniquity, and carried on as this was, must be abolished, let the policy be what it might,—let the consequences be what they would, I from this time determined that I would never rest till I had effected its abolition.”

Slavery, a booming business, contributed much to the British economy. Though few were directly involved in the slave trade, most wealthy families benefited from it somehow. The resistance to abolishing slavery was fierce, but William was resolute.

For 20 years, William worked as an abolitionist, often without seeing positive results. But on July 26, 1833, the House of Commons voted to abolish the slave trade. Upon hearing the news, William said, “Thank God that I have lived to witness [this] day.” He died three days later.
