monthly Logos free ebook -recommended! (Dec)


Tremper Longman III
In How to Read Proverbs, Tremper Longman provides a guide to understanding and savoring the Proverbs for all their wisdom. By studying the book of Proverbs as a whole, you’ll gain greater insight as you discover its relation to other Scriptural wisdom literature and even ancient non-Israelite wisdom.

Plus, add How to Read the Psalms to your digital library for US$1.99!

Tremper Longman helps us overcome the distance between the psalmists’ world and ours. He explains the various kinds of psalms, how they were used in Hebrew worship, their relationship to the rest of the Old Testament, and how Christians can appropriate their messages and insights today.

How to Preach and Teach the Old Testament for All Its Worth

Many preachers ignore preaching from the Old Testament because they feel it is outdated in light of the New Testament and difficult to expound. On the other hand, some preachers will preach from the Old Testament frequently but fail to handle it correctly, turning it into moralistic rules or symbolic lessons for our spiritual life. In How to Preach and Teach the Old Testament for All Its Worth, Christopher J. H. Wright proclaims that preachers must not ignore the Old Testament. It is the Word of God! The Old Testament lays the foundation for our faith and it was the Bible that Jesus read and used.

Looking first at why we should preach from the Old Testament, the author moves on to show the reader how they can be preach from it. Covering the History, Law, Prophets, Psalms, and Wisdom Literature, interspersed with practical checklists, exercises, and sermons, he provides an essential guide on how to handle the Old Testament responsibly.

 Few topics can grab headlines and stir passions quite like politics, especially when the church is involved. Considering the attention that many Christian parachurch groups, churches, and individual believers give to politics—and of the varying and sometimes divergent political ideals and aims among them—Five Views on the Church and Politics provides a helpful breakdown of the possible Christian approaches. Readers will find themselves equipped to think more deeply about the relationship between church and state in a way that goes beyond mere policy debates and current campaigns.

Zondervan Statement on another New Testament Commentary of O'Brien

//It is with sadness and regret that we have concluded this volume does not follow commonly accepted standards for the use and documentation of secondary resources. Dr. O’Brien is revered by his colleagues in the academy and by his former students. His commentaries, including volume 44 in the WBC, have been used with great benefit by the thousands who have purchased them. While we have no reason to believe that Dr. O’Brien intentionally misused secondary resources, our commitment to high publishing standards leaves us no choice but to put volume 44 of the WBC out of print in both its print and digital formats and to destroy the remaining inventory.//
