With a 15% discount, interest free payment plan options, and credit, Christmas 2011 may be the best time ever to get a new Logos base package!

Base Packages: Tons of Content at an Incredible Price

Base packages are already your best bet to get thousands of dollars worth of resources for pennies on the dollar. If you are unfamiliar with the amazing content available in our base packages, check out our handy comparison chart. But I warn you, it’s going to take a while to wrap your mind around all the resources available in our base packages.

Just look at the sheer number of books available:

The sheer volume of content in Logos base packages makes them incredibly valuable—even at regular price. When you factor in the 15% discount—and all the extra content available with credit you’ll earn—it’s an unbelievable deal!

Take Advantage of Holiday Savings!

You can purchase any base packages at 15% off through January 2. This represents even greater savings on collections which are already a great value! With your holiday purchase of a base package, you can save anywhere from $22–$643. And our interest-free Payment Plans, let you stretch those payments out for up to 12 months!

On top of an already great price, through New Year’s Day, you can get a portion of your base package purchase returned to you in the form of credit. “How much,” you ask?

These amounts represent the credit earned on a base package purchase. Remember, the more you spend, the more you earn. Make sure you familiarize yourself the details of our Christmas Credit promotion.

An Example of Christmas Savings

If you were to pick up Scholar’s Platinum today, you would save 15%, spread those payments out for 12 months, and then receive $460.94 in credit to use in 2012. Just take look at all of the products available for $460, or put that $460 dollars towards a larger collection you want later—your credit will never expire!

So take advantage of Logos’ Christmas 2011 promotion, and purchase a base package for yourself or a loved one today!

Earn Credit with Your Holiday Purchases!

With the annual 12 Days of Logos sale and 15% off all base packages, you can save big this Christmas on!  But did you know that your qualifying purchases—made between December 1, 2011 and January 2, 2012—will count toward credit? That’s right! Not only can you save money now, you can also earn credit to spend later.

Sign Up for Christmas Credit!

You need to sign up to qualify for this promotion. So the first thing you want to do is head to the 2011 Christmas page and enter your email address to sign up. At the end of the promotion, all qualifying purchases made with the associated email address will be totaled and we will credit the appropriate amount of credit to your account.

Don’t worry. If you made a huge purchase earlier this month but hadn’t opted into the promotion yet, you can still get credit for that purchase. As long as you sign up by the end of the promotion (January 2, 2012), every qualifying purchase made during the promotion period (December 1, 2011 through January 2, 2012) will be credited to your account!

How Does Christmas Credit Work?

The total amount of your qualifying purchases made during the promotional period (before taxes and shipping) will place you in 1 of 5 tiers. Each tier offers a percentage of your total spending in credit (the percentage increases as your total spending increases). The credit you earn is determined by the price bracket you fall into at the end of the promotion.

  • Spend $10 to $99.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 15% of your total in credit (up to $15).
  • Spend $100 to $499.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 20% of your total in credit (up to $100).
  • Spend $500 to $999.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 25% of your total in credit (up to $250).
  • Spend $1,000 to $2,499.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 30% of your total in credit (up to $750).
  • Spend $2,500 to $4,999.99 on qualifying products, and you’ll get 40% of your total in credit (up to $2000).
  • Spend $5,000 or more on qualifying products, and we’ll match 50% of your total in credit (there’s no cap to the amount you can earn)!

Shortly after the promotion ends, you will receive your credit based on the amount of your qualifying purchases. You can then use your credit—which never expires—toward any live products!

What About Payment Plans?

With a Logos Payment plan, you can stretch out your payments for up to 12 months. Did you know that with the Christmas Credit promotion, not only can you use our interest free payment plan, but qualifying purchases can also earn you

This means you could purchase Portfolio at 15% off (all of our base packages are on sale through January 2), spread those payments out for 12 months, and then receive $1,458.60 in credit! That’s enough credit to purchase the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary (44 vols.)  and still have nearly $400 to spend on more great resources!

Perseus and the Greek Background of the New Testament

On September 30 we released over 1,700 free books in the seven Perseus collections. With all the collections available for free download, a lot of people are asking “How can I use Perseus for Bible study?”

Dr. David Instone-Brewer, Senior Research Fellow in Rabbinics and the New Testament for Tyndale House, recently published an informative article on the combined efficacy of Perseus and Logos 4 in studying the Greek context of the New Testament.

“The combination in Logos of the Perseus material and the Duke Databank of Papyri makes this Logos collection more useful for NT research than any other collection of Greek literature,” says Dr. Instone-Brewer. “In my opinion, the Logos implementation of Perseus is now the best tool available for studying classical Greek background of the Bible.”

In the article, Dr. Instone-Brewer digs into the submission of women in the New Testament, and how to study this topic using Scripture alongside Greek classical literature from the Perseus collections.

The Perseus Collections are free, so if you haven’t downloaded them yet, download all seven collections today!

An Interview with Dr. William Varner

Dr. William Varner’s To Love God and to Love Others: A Devotional Commentary on James is now available on Pre-Pub. I had the honor of sitting down with Dr. Varner at this year’s Evangelical Theological Society’s meeting in San Francisco to ask him a few questions about his new commentary on James.

Logos: Thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions Dr. Varner. Could you tell our readers a little bit about yourself?

Dr. Varner: I was saved at the age of 17, did my undergraduate work at Bob Jones University, and then went on to receive my M.Div. and Th.M. (NT) at Biblical Seminary in PA. Along the way I also picked up an M.A. in Judaic studies at Dropsie College and an Ed.D. in theological education from Temple University. I teach at the Master’s College in Santa Clarita and I also pastor the Sojourners Fellowship at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, CA.

Logos: How did this devotional commentary on James come to fruition?

Dr. Varner: Last winter I published a technical commentary on the Greek text of James. It was aimed at scholars and developed a discourse analysis perspective on the book. By the way, it is also available through Logos! The flock of three hundred folks that I pastor was mostly unable to benefit from the commentary due to its technical, linguistic nature. So I began posting on my blog some practical comments on James based on my research, but not expressing the ideas in technical language. I then edited those posts, added some new material, and also added a personal prayer after each section. Logos liked the idea and the rest is history.

Logos: What makes To Love God and to Love Others different from traditional commentaries on James?

Dr. Varner: Only that I try to work harder at applying the practical message of James even more than good traditional commentaries. Pastors and teachers can also utilize the comments since they are presented in outline “sermonic” form. Because James uses so much of the teaching of Jesus, it was easy to come up with the title, To Love God and Others, since Jesus uses such a “creed” to summarize the OT (Matt 22:37-39). James does the same, with a strong dose of our horizontal love to others. But he does not neglect our vertical love to God either. There is more theology in James than many realize. He is not just a moralist. His ethics are theologically grounded.

Logos: How can one incorporate your devotional commentary into their daily Bible study?

Dr. Varner: The reader can work through the sections of James one at a time, say six days a week, and finish the book in about five weeks. I have included the entire English text of James, so you can read a passage of 4-5 verses, and then read my devotional comments. Finally—and this is something that a commentary rarely does—I append a brief personal prayer at the end of each section where I try to formulate the truths in that passage into the petitions of the prayer. I try to follow the old three step approach: observe, interpret, apply.

Logos: Do you have any other writings on James forthcoming?

Dr. Varner: I am glad you asked. I am presently finishing work on another exegetical commentary on James, to be included in the series called the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary. It is about twice as long as the discourse commentary that I previously mentioned and probably 10 times longer than the devotional commentary. I might add that Logos is sponsoring the publication of this significant set of commentaries on the entire Bible. I think that mine will be the second New Testament volume to appear.

Logos: Thanks Dr. Varner for taking the time to answer some questions.

If you want to get To Love God and to Love Others: A Devotional Commentary at the amazing Pre-Pub price of $6.95 make sure you place your order soon.
