With so many people around the world being stuck inside, a handful of Christian publishing companies are currently running some really great deals on eBooks. For those interested in snagging some theology books on the cheap, here’s some info and a few recommendations (#notsponsored lol).
Note: These sales are temporary, so get ’em while the gettin’s good!
Zondervan Academic is offering the Kindle versions of some of their Counterpoints books at a big discount. These books take a controversial theological topic and present essays from different authors arguing different perspectives. Here are some you won’t want to miss:
– Four Views on the Book of Revelation
– Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy
– Five Views on Sanctification
– Remarriage After Divorce in Today’s Church: 3 Views
– Understanding Four Views on the Lord’s Supper
Eerdmans has a number of theology titles discounted — you can see the full list here. These are ones I’d say you shouldn’t miss:
- Becoming the Gospel: Paul, Participation, and Mission by Michael J. Gorman — A scholarly study of Paul’s understanding of mission. I’m reading it now and loving it!
- Evolution and the Fall edited by William Cavanaugh & James K. A. Smith – Set of essays discussing how one might integrate acceptance of evolution with a Christian view of the fall/original sin.
- Inspired: The Holy Spirit and the Mind of Faith by Jack Levison — Looks at the relationship between the Holy Spirit’s influence and human reasoning.
- Life After Death: A New Approach to the Last Things by Anthony Thiselton
- Paul and the Gift by John Barclay — A very important recent work in Pauline studies, looking at Paul’s understanding of “grace.”
- Paul’s Letter to the Philippians: A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary by Ben Witherington
- The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ by Fleming Rutledge
- The Gospel in a Pluralist Society by Lesslie Newbigin
- The Inspiration and Interpretation of Scripture: What the Early Church Can Teach Us by Michael Graves — Very helpful examination of the doctrine of Scripture in church history.
- 1 Samuel as Christian Scripture: A Theological Commentary by Stephen B. Chapman
Fortress Press is running a massive spring eBook sale, with hundreds of titles up for grabs. You can see the full catalog here, but here are a few of my recommendations:
- Divine Immutability by Isaak August Dorner — A classic treatise arguing that classical formulations of unqualified divine simplicity and immutability not only contradict the central christological and trinitarian distinctions but also render implausible any positive relation between God and his creation.
- Paul and Palestinian Judaism by E. P. Sanders — This groundbreaking study changed the face of Pauline studies in the twentieth century, forming the basis for the New Perspectives on Paul movement.
- Paul and the Faithfulness of God by N. T. Wright — Wright’s magnum opus on Paul; a must-read for serious Pauline students.
Let me know in the comments if you’ve come across any other worthwhile deals I failed to mention here.
