Are you a biblical scholar, theologian, pastor/scholar, seminary student? Logos is holding a Black Friday event that will interest you greatly. Here are three deals that stuck out to me with the academic in mind:
Eighty Percent Off
First, pretty much every resource in the Logos digital library is on sale, with some items up to 80% off. Peruse the deals, or search for specific items to find your discount and build your library.
Second, the esteemed ICC Commentaries are on sale for $14.99 each. That’s a very low price for these scholarly kings of the commentary world, in the order of 60-70% off. Add more of the iconic green covers to your library.
Third, Logos is offering a number of so-called “legacy libraries” for sale. These are Logos 6 libraries (Logos is now in its 9th iteration) that many customers loved, which you can now get for a very low price, and incorporate into your newer version of Logos.
There are of course many more deals to find this Black Friday, so head over to Logos and find something special at a great price before the weekend is over.
One of the most important decisions you can make as a scholar of the Bible after your formal studies are completed is how and where you will continue to write and research. You’ve spent years gaining specialist skills in the original languages, critical thinking, and research methods. But where will you find the resources to continue a high level of scholarly output?
