December’s Free Book: Study Doctrine in Acts

Throughout December, you can download Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible: Acts for free. In Logos’ Free Book of the Month, Jaroslav Pelikan (a well-respected scholar on Christian history) offers an insightful, well-written commentary ideal for pastors and teachers. From the in-depth introduction and theological analysis of Scripture, you can gain new observations of Acts to share with your congregation, small group, or class.

This volume—and the entire the Brazos Theological Commentary series—helps readers focus on biblical themes and doctrines and break away intellectual and spiritual apathy. This excerpt from the introduction provides more explanation of why these are a worthwhile resource for pastors, students, and Bible scholars alike:

This series of biblical commentaries was born out of the conviction that dogma clarifies rather than obscures. Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible advances upon the assumption that the Nicene tradition, in all its diversity and controversy, provides the proper basis for the interpretation of the Bible as Christian Scripture. God the Father Almighty, who sends his only begotten Son to die for us and for our salvation and who raises the crucified Son in the power of the Holy Spirit so that the baptized may be joined in one body—faith in this God with this vocation of love for the world is the lens through to view the heterogeneity and particularity of the biblical texts. Doctrine, then, is not a moldering scrim of antique prejudice obscuring the meaning of the Bible. It is a crucial aspect of the divine pedagogy, a clarifying agent for our minds fogged by self-deceptions, a challenge to our languid intellectual apathy.
