Celebrate Your Pastor with Pastor Appreciation Month Specials!

“Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching.” (1 Timothy 5:17, ESV)

Pastor Appreciation Month Specials!

October is Pastor Appreciation Month, and a great time to recommit to praying for, encouraging, and honoring our clergy. To celebrate the value of pastoral ministry, Logos has created Pastor Appreciation Month Specials.

For every week of October we’ve selected a theme: Leadership, Worship, Pastoral Care, and Preaching. For each of these themes we’ve chosen five resources (books, collections, or other goodies) which we think could benefit a pastoral ministry. Check back every day to see what new deals we’ve released! You never know what discounts or freebies may await you!

Give the Gift of a Base Package

If your pastor is a Logos user, make sure to let them know about Logos’ Pastor Appreciation Month Specials. If your pastor is not a Logos user, then consider gifting them a Logos base package. Not only will it revolutionize their study, but you will be giving them the greatest gift possible—time. With a Logos 4 base package, your pastor can do more study faster. It is a ministerial lifesaver when the demands of ministry overwhelm an already busy week.

Get 15% off of a base package today when you use the coupon code BLESSING at checkout—your pastor will thank you!

And don’t forget to check back often to see the latest Pastor Appreciation Month Specials!

On Pre-Pub: The Missional Theology Collection

Missions are an important facet of the church’s participation in the gospel. Sharing the powerful message of divine reconciliation across cultures and language barriers is an integral part of Christian obedience. Jesus himself charged the church with the task of going to make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:19).

Missions require planning and effort. Learning to share the message in a relevant way, in an unfamiliar language, is a herculean task requiring some cultural, anthropological, methodological, and sociological understanding.

If your library could use quality books on mission related concerns, look no further than the Missional Theology Collection. This fifteen-volume collection of books from Paternoster Press offers nearly 4,000 pages of missions oriented material discussed from a distinctly twenty-first-century perspective.

In this collection you will:

  • gain understanding of the origins and spread of liberation theology
  • examine the biblical practice of using discipleship as an effective model for teaching attitudes, values, and behavior
  • challenge some misconceptions about Latin American evangelical theology
  • explore ideas for effectively engaging diverse cultures in areas like creative art, literature, politics, science, and business
  • find a critique of Clark Pinnock’s view of inclusivism
  • and much more
This collection is currently on Pre-Pub for over 60% off of the retail price—that’s nearly $300 off! Don’t miss this opportunity to add incredible insight into modern missional theology to your library.
