Every now and then, I’ll agree to do a post like this. Rather than noticing this sale on my own, I was told about in advance and received a few books in exchange for taking some time to tell you about this pretty stellar deal. That’s a pretty fair deal when it comes right down to it, I just thought I’d cut the copy for a moment in the interests of full disclosure.
Anyway, if you like getting commentaries on Kindle, and you also happen to like studying the Gospels, this sale is for you. Zondervan has selected commentaries from its NIVAC, ZECNT, SGBC, ZIBBC, and EBC, as well as Studies on the Go. If you’re not familiar with the previous acronyms they are:
- NIV Application Commentary (very useful for what the title suggests)
- Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on The NT (one of the best series in my opinion)
- The Story of God Bible Commentary (only one volume pertains here: Sermon on The Mount)
- Zondervan Illustrated Bible Background Commentaries
- Expositor’s Bible Commentary (includes the Luke-Acts volume in this deal)
I mostly use commentaries in Logos, so to be honest, I won’t take advantage of any of these deals. However, that shouldn’t stop you. I have gotten commentaries on Kindle in the past, and actually have the SGBC Sermon on The Mount volume that way. I also reviewed it once upon a time. I have several NIVAC volumes that way as well, but have since migrated to Logos. For people that don’t have or use Logos, getting some of these weightier books on Kindle might just be the way to go.
That is especially true of the big volumes on the Gospels in the ZECNT series. Currently, they are:
In addition to those, I’ve posted reviews on the rest in the series:
- James (ZECNT)
- Ephesians (ZECNT)
- Galatians (ZECNT)
- Colossians/Philemon (ZECNT)
- 1 & 2 Thessalonians (ZECNT)
- Acts (ZECNT)
- 1, 2, 3 John (ZECNT)
You might also find this post on the Logos version of Galatians/Ephesians helpful since it shows some screenshots of what a digital version looks like. I believe my James post in the list above gives the rundown on the series as a whole so you can see what the hype is about.
Anyway, if I were you, and you are a person who doesn’t already have a commitment to commentaries in Logos, I’d take advantage of this eBooks sale in order to grab the ZECNT volumes at the least. You can certainly get some more, and should probably do the Matthew all in one deal in the picture. The deals on those are hard to beat for what you’ll get in return in the next few months/years of study.
