In the a priori series we put three questions to scholars undertaking important research in biblical studies, theology, ethics, and more. We seek out the authors whose work may be poised for future renown in this early stage in their career, whose mission is the church, whose vocation is research. This week we hear from Xiaoli Yang and her work on Intercultural Theology, meshing the poetry of Haizi and the Gospel of Luke.[Read more…]
If you’re planning on doing serious research in biblical Hebrew this year, or preaching from the Old Testament and planning on spending many hours in the original Hebrew, then consider pre-ordering any of the following upper-level academic resources currently gathering interest in Logos.
Resources in Logos that are currently “gathering interest” are pending publication on our digital platform until a certain number of orders are placed. Pre-order deals are a special opportunity to get in early on a book or collection in Logos, and pay a reduced price compared to the cost post-publication. They represent good value for the busy scholar or pastor.
Here’s a short list:
Brill Hebrew Reference Collection (5 vols.) – Brill is renowned as one of the preeminent publishers of biblical studies resources in the world. This elite collection includes a lexicon of Late Biblical Hebrew and a comprehensive encyclopedia of the Hebrew language. The complete history of the Hebrew language is presented, with a focus on Late Biblical Hebrew. With Brill’s collection, you can study Hebrew’s linguistic evolution, and track its diachronic developments through history.
Linguistic Studies in Ancient West Semitic Update (7 vols.) – This fine collection from Eisenbrauns includes monographs, collections of essays, and text editions informed by the approaches of linguistic science. Languages covered include Hebrew, Aramaic, Ugaritic, and more.
Learning Biblical Hebrew Interactively (2 vols.) – Interested in teaching Hebrew to your next class using the interactive method? The foundation for Paul Overland’s exciting work is the theory and practice of Second Language Acquisition (SLA). Students work through the book of Jonah actually communicating in Hebrew. A worthy choice for those whose Hebrew has slipped, and want to dive back in using a fresh approach.[Read more…]

Both Brill’s new Dictionary of Ancient Greek (GE) and Liddell and Scott Greek–English Lexicon with Revised Supplement (LSJM) are more or less the same size and length. As a publishing decision, this introduces an important set of constraints upon GE’s editors, who must make various judgments, comprises, and decisions in what they choose to prioritize.[Read more…]

Brill’s Dictionary of Ancient Greek is finally here for Logos. Or, at least, it’s finally available for pre-order. Many of us Greek language geeks have been rather eagerly waiting for its digital appearance on Logos, though perhaps other Logos users might be wondering what Brill’s GE (the editors’ preferred abbreviation) can contribute to their libraries. Here are some questions that you be asking yourself already:[Read more…]
Let’s talk about Greek. And what you need to master it. To gain fluency.
Study. Years of hard labor bent over grammars and ancient texts. Speaking Ancient Greek with strangers on Skype. Dreaming in Koine.
Right. Perhaps mastery at that level isn’t a priority. Exegesis is.
Good. Then I want your participation in a project, one that will facilitate your exegesis.
The Brill Greek Reference Collection is a high-level academic powerhouse for anybody working in this, the language of the gods, the philosophers, Josephus, the New Testament.
This 5-volume collection is currently in pre-pub, and includes both:
- The 3-volume Encyclopedia of Ancient Greek Language and Linguistics
- The 2-volume Etymological Dictionary of Greek
I highly recommend that you add these elite resources to your digital research library. To posses them in hardcover sounds lovely, but, really?
Don’t let the Brill Greek Reference Collection molder on your shelf, become a display piece, sold off in a garage sale when you die.
Possess the fully functional, fully searchable powerhouse in its absolutely best format: in your Logos digital research library.
Keep your bookshelves for Harry Potter.
The pre-pub price of the Brill Greek Reference Collection is currently $499.99, compared to the retail digital price of $899.99 and the retail print price of $1,709.
I’ll let you do the math, but those are huge savings. Take advantage.
And help get this powerful collection to publication today.
Brill volumes have a special place in my heart. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing as bound physical monographs, with utmost attention to detail in their craftsmanship of cloth-bound covers and gold-letter embossing, but the aesthetics also extend to the written text. [Read more…]
