Free books are always a good thing. Especially if you’re a lover of books like most scholars and pastors. But some free books are better than others. November’s free book of the month from Logos is R. T. France’s acclaimed commentary on the Gospel of Mark in the outstanding NIGTC series. Why is this such a good book choice? Because France is a premier example of a pastor/theologian and his commentary demonstrates how to couple intimate knowledge of the Greek text with spiritual profundity.
But who was R. T. France? Only one of the most respected British NT scholars of this generation! He earned his PhD from Bristol and ministered at numerous Anglican churches throughout the course of his life. After a few years teaching NT in Nigeria, he served as the librarian of Tyndale House (1973-1976), and was later elected Warden of that same famous evangelical library in the heart of Cambridge.
His academic posts included teaching NT at London Bible College and serving as principal of Wycliff Hall, Oxford. Although he left this world in 2012, his legacy of robust Christian scholarship remains with us in his numerous works, including Jesus and the Old Testament, The Evidence for Jesus, and Mark (NIGTC).
Get your free copy of France’s Mark today. No strings attached. Just a free book to add depth to your sermons and papers and open new doors of research insight.
And, if you plan to work on or preach through Colossians and/or Philemon anytime soon, Logos is offering James Dunn’s NIGTC for only $5 alongside Mark.
