monthly Logos free ebook (April)




Various Authors
Brandon O’Brien and E. Randolph Richards shed light on the ways Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible. They identify nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what is going on in a text than what the context actually suggests. Drawing on their own cross-cultural experience in global missions, the authors show how greater understanding of cultural differences in language, time, and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways.

[Kindle sale] handbook on practical theology

Disaster Ministry Handbook Kindle Edition 

by Jamie D. Atenand  David M. Boan 

IVP, 2015.

Digital List Price:

$18.99
Kindle Price: US$4.99
Save $14.01 (74%)

When disasters happen, people turn to local churches as centers for response and assistance. When floods or tornadoes devastate an area, or when shootings and violence shock a community, knowing what to do can be the difference between calm and chaos, courage and fear, life and death. But few churches plan in advance for what they should do— until the storm hits.

Don't get caught unprepared. If a natural disaster or human tragedy strikes your community, your church can minister to the hurting. Jamie Aten and David Boan, codirectors of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute, provide a practical guide for disaster preparedness. Disaster ministry is a critically important work of the church, preparing for the unthinkable, providing relief to survivors, caring for the vulnerable and helping communities recover. Filled with resources for emergency planning and crisis management, this book provides best practices for local congregations. By taking action in advance, your church can help prevent harm and save lives during a disaster.

The time to plan is now. Be prepared.

Publisher: Eerdmans
$499.99  US$99.99
Save 80% (avg. US$8.3@ vol.)

The New International Greek Testament Commentary Series, based on the UBS Greek New Testament, engages in deep exegetical and interpretational study of the New Testament on a verse-by-verse level, providing readers with detailed textual commentary and scholarly research. An enticing series for any reader of the Greek New Testament at any level of comprehension of the Greek language, this series opens up new doors for a Greek-minded study of the Bible.
Consideration of theological themes sits at the heart of this commentary series. Bringing in historical and contextual aspects of interpretation, readers will see the New Testament as those who first read it two thousand years ago and understand the theological purposes behind each sentence.
This series is a must for anyone looking for an accessible, respectable commentary on the Greek text.

  • new and good volumes: Mark by R. T. France; 1Cor by Thiselton (Romans by Longenecker but not in this bundle; James by Davids is not bad) (note my previous comments on this platform's limitation)

This Risen Existence: The Spirit of Easter

Paula Gooder

Paula Gooder leads us on a biblical exploration of the resurrection accounts in each of the Gospels and in Paul’s writings, as well as the account of the Ascension and coming of the Spirit at Pentecost in Acts. Arranged for daily reading through the seven weeks of Eastertide, the book opens with an extended reflection on ancient and contemporary understandings of resurrection. Subsequent chapters lead us on an exciting journey of discovery through the New Testament narratives in a quest to discover what resurrection tells us about life after death, the end times, and what it actually means to be a Christian.

"The Bible is what God has made. Sermons are what we make with what God has made." This is the foundation for developing expository messages, according to Ramesh Richard. His method, explained in Preparing Expository Sermons, has been field-tested in training seminars for thousands of preachers around the world.

Richard's book is a simple do-it-yourself resource for developing and preaching expository sermons. It guides the reader through a seven-step process, with many practical suggestions and illustrative charts along the way. In addition, there are eleven appendixes that include information on:
o how to choose a text
o preaching narratives
o understanding your audience
o forms of sermon introduction
A comprehensive sermon evaluation questionnaire is included as well.

Preparing Expository Sermons, an updated and expanded version of Scripture Sculpture, is ideal for beginning preachers, lay preachers without formal training, or any pastor who is looking for a refresher course in expository sermon preparation.

Logos Bible Software 7 Basic Edition --free today (not sure when it will end)

Logos Bible Software 7 Basic Edition


Logos 7 Basic is the free version of our Logos Bible Study application, allowing you to try a limited-feature version until you’re ready to get the fully-featured version of Logos 7. With no credit card required, you can get started with Logos 7 Basic today and enjoy a few of the features we’ve included, as well as select datasets, books, and other resources*.
If you’re on a previous version of Logos, Logos 7 Basic will update you to the Logos 7 version of our software. While Logos 7 Basic is not the full-featured version of Logos 7, it is an application version update, with a few additional datasets and resources added in.
*The features, datasets, and books provided in Logos 7 Basic are “access-only”, which means you have access to them, but do not own them permanently.

短評:
  1. 對從未有Logos的人——Logos其本上是一個電子書平台,提供研經及神學的電子書。現在這個Basic版跟Lexham English Bible, 其他有些用的書有:Faithlife Study Bible Notes, DIY Bible Study及 Lexham Bible Dictionary. 但它的真正強項在於integrate不同resources, 即是把經文和與其相關的書籍(註釋書、聖經詞典)串連一起,聖經和書籍能並排而且同步閱讀 (特別那些你未買的好書, 大概在你安裝後不久,便會有電郵向你推銷)。可以接受會有不斷擴展的誘惑的話,則裝也無妨...(Logos每月也有一本免費書和一本兩三元美金的書供選購。) 
  2. 對已買過任何版本的Logos的人——不用問,絕對應upgrade (曾買Libronix的朋友請記得用你之前註冊的名登入Logos 7,以能在v.7開啟你以前的書)。 
  3. Logos對系統資源有一定要求,不宜安裝在舊款電腦中(其手機Apps應不在此限)。它有中文電子書可供購買,但對比其本身的英文書,暫時仍未有太多選擇。
