Logos monthly free ebook by John Stott (Aug)

John Stott
In a dark little chapel many years ago, a solitary schoolboy went in search of God and later gave his life to Christ. It turned out to be the most significant step he was ever to take. If it were not for Christ, he reflects, his would have been on the scrapheap of wasted and discarded lives. Instead, his life was used to lead countless others around the world to that same new life, and into a deeper understanding of the One who gave his life that we might live.

Fee's NT Exegesis on sale (Kindle)

New Testament Exegesis: A Handbook for Students and Pastors Kindle Edition 

3rd edition. Westminster John Knox Press, 2003. 

Building on the belief that the task of exegesis is to understand the divine-human intention locked within the biblical text, Gordon Fee provides a lucid step-by-step analysis of exegetical procedures that has made New Testament Exegesis a standard textbook for nearly two decades. Now more than ever, with an updated, newly integrated bibliography and an appendix directly addressing reader-response criticism, this essential, classic guide will assist students, scholars, and clergy in coming to grips with the New Testament.

good book on introduction to Psalms

by Gordon Wenham 


Digital List Price: $16.99
Kindle Price: US$3.99
Save $13.00 (77%)

 One of the most respected Old Testament scholars of our time introduces us to the history of scholarship on the Psalter and provides hermeneutical guidelines for interpreting the book— making accessible to us the transforming messages of the Psalms.

“This book’s many virtues make it instructive and refreshing: I appreciate its stress on the psalms’ place in public worship, and the speech-act notion of self-involvement in singing. Wenham also offers helpful arguments for respecting the titles of the psalms. And the creative approach to ‘canonical reading’ allows us to view each psalm both as a composition for public singing and as a part of the canonical book (which may guide our interpretation). I heartily commend this work!”
C. John CollinsProfessor of Old Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary

Logos monthly ebook: Verbum chosen instead (July)

I don't think July's Logos monthly ebook is so recommendable (but still, it's free: The Old Religion in a New World: The History of North American Christianity by Mark A. Noll)

Instead the Verbum one (the Catholic edition of Logos running on exactly the same platform) is way more attractive (even with the added Luke commentary by L. T. Johnson!):
