You know what time it is—free book time! (There’s also a book-buying hack for you to consider at the end of this post.)
This month’s free book is A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles by I. Howard Marshall, Emeritus Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Honorary Research Professor at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.
As Dr. Marshall explains in the 2004 preface, this commentary was written to fill a gap in biblical scholarship:
Since the publication of the original volume in the International Critical Commentary in 1924, there has been no detailed critical commentary on the Greek text of the epistles in English apart from the major work of G.W. Knight III (NIGTC) in a series intended primarily for students.
This commentary changed that. That’s why A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles is a landmark work.
Also in May, you can get both Acts volumes from the International Critical Commentary series (ICC) for under $5—a savings of nearly $50.
- A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles, Vol. 1 (covers Acts 1–14), now $1.99
- A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles, Vol. 2 (covers Acts 15–28), now $2.99
Both titles are written by C.K. Barrett and are praised highly in the Theological Book Review, Nouvelle Revue Theologique, and The Bible Today.
Here’s a little Logos trick for you: all three of these commentaries are part of the respected International Critical Commentary series (ICC) (62 vols.), which happens to be on sale for 40% off in May’s Top Picks.
That’s already a heck of a deal—it saves you nearly $1,000 on this set.
But because you never pay twice for something you already own in Logos, you can pull the price down even more by getting all three of these commentaries for less than $5, when they’d usually cost nearly $80.
