Logos Free Book of the Month: N.T. Wright’s “The Lord and His Prayer”

LordAndHisPrayerEvery month Logos offers one free resource…always something to check out. To see what they have given away and to keep up with the latest including “The Lord and His Prayer” see this link.

This month’s is not one to pass up, N.T. Wright’s “The Lord and His Prayer.” This is a fantastic book on the Lord’s Prayer and I would consider it the “go to” resource on the subject. As always Wright’s writing is extremely helpful. He pulls in the needed Jewish historical background material to help you get more in tune with the wording of the prayer and how a Jew in Jesus day may have understood it in light of their world.

I used this to help in teaching a class on the Lord’s prayer a few months ago and I highly recommend it. It would fit for sermon/lesson prep. It would also be a fantastic resource for doing a personal study or even a devotional study of the Lord’s prayer.

Enjoy and check in next month to see what’s next!

Logos Review: Baker Exegetical Commentary on the Gospel of John (Vol 1 & 2)

This is one of those resources I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. I was prepping to teach a Wednesday night series on the Gospel of John and I just had to have Keener on my team. I have grown to appreciate Craig Keener’s work on Bible backgrounds as well as his book Paul,Continue Reading

Open Tombs, Fight or Flight and Making Sense of Mary in John 20

When you are young you do foolish things…things you look back on and wonder “What was I thinking?” or think about all the bad things that could have resulted from your decisions. We had a youth group that went through a season of seeking out scarey experiences. There were nights we would leave Wednesday nightContinue Reading

Integrity & Stewardship = Clarity

Integrity brings clarity. It is easiest to see what God is up to once you have cleared the junk out of the way and living with integrity helps clear things out. We cannot expect God to help us see the next step if we don’t care to live in line with Him in the stepContinue Reading

Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be…Preachers?

A few weeks ago I asked my Wednesday night class this question, “How many of you would want your children or grandchildren to be preachers?” There were a few who could make a case for it but many could not. We want our kids to grow up to be all sorts of things, but “preacher”?Continue Reading

Three Gardens

The opening scene of humanity is set in a garden..the perfect place. All is provided. Man and woman in perfect harmony. Naked and unashamed. God walking with man and woman…unhindered. Enter serpent, temptation, the desire to be like God…tranquility broken…unashamed no more. Sin had entered into the world starting in a garden and so…like allContinue Reading

Opposition: Satan vs God

When we talk about facing spiritual opposition in life the “go to” person to blame is typically Satan. His name, after all,  does mean an opponent or one who opposes so it makes sense that he is going to stand in our way from time to time. One reason he may be our “go to”Continue Reading

Great time at the 2015 Pepperdine Bible Lectures

Last week was exactly what Missy and I needed…a few days being uplifted, encouraged and instructed at Pepperdine. The theme this year was on the book of James with an emphasis on practice.  It was also great catching up with people and making new friends as well. Thanks to everyone who made last week amazing!Continue Reading
