Ah yes . . . that demure grey cover, concealing a brilliant blue cloth cover embossed with distinctive gold lettering. The iconic design of a Mohr Siebeck volume leaves the impression of professionalism and integrity. But the innovative force of a Mohr Siebeck monograph is the text printed inside.
There is a new bundle from Mohr Siebeck currently in pre-production on the Logos library, the 7-volume Academic Studies of the New Testament. If you’re unfamiliar with the terminology “pre-pub,” it’s essentially an opportunity for you to get in early on great deals for resources not yet fully funded for the Logos digital library. The pre-pub price is typically far lower than the price post-pub, and an even deeper discount from physical copies of those same books.
So what makes this NT bundle so exciting? Three things:
First of all, if you jump in now, you’ll own seven Mohr Siebeck volumes for $100. Frankly, that’s unheard of. To put this in perspective: Last month, I bought a print copy of a Mohr Siebeck edited volume for my research and paid $146, for just that one volume. And that was at a 30% discount! The total price for all seven of these NT monographs (which are not edited volumes) is around $750. This is a no-brainer in terms of savings and value.
Purchasing the Mohr Siebeck NT bundle is akin to inviting seven brilliant scholars into your living room for a chat over coffee. Each one of these monographs is more than a research tool; they are conversations. These books offer dialogues between you and Jimmy Dunn, you and Richard Bauckham . . . you get the idea. Mohr Siebeck doesn’t accept just anybody into their elite cadre of authors, so you’ll be thinking along with the best.
Indeed, these books have each made an impact in their own subdiscipline of NT studies. There really couldn’t be a better use of your time than to invest heavily into reading these volumes with careful attention. Even if your personal area of research is another aspect of biblical studies, you will find here the finest examples of world-class NT research. You invest in yourself when you invest in a Mohr Siebeck.
Finally, the sheer usability of the Mohr Siebeck NT bundle is the most compelling reason to buy this bundle on Logos. You already know you’re getting quality academic content due to the publisher. You already know the price is a steal due to the digital format and the pre-pub discount. But what is the use of any of those things if the content cannot be quickly and efficiently accessed? $100 would be a great price for seven physical books, but you wouldn’t want to lug them down to your local coffee shop.
On the Logos platform, however, you can instantly look up keywords pertaining to your research, or find other authors referenced in each work in a split a second (for example, where does Dunn refer to Luther). You can take prolific notes right there in your Logos program, to be indexed and searched easily when writing up your drafts. You can also copy and paste quotations that will automatically input perfectly formatted footnotes into your word processor. There really is no better way to do research.
I invite you to take advantage of this offer from Logos and get in early on the pre-pub pricing. You will be helping move an exciting project to publication (tell your friends as well), and at the same time getting a great deal on a lifetime investment.
More than that, I hope you flourish from reading and using these volumes in your own pursuit of a deeper understanding of the New Testament and its surrounding literature. Enjoy the conversation.
