I thought Faithlife was offering a free book each week in connection with the back-to-school sale. I got the Leviticus commentary last week, but haven't seen any more free books offered. Nor have others I've talked to. Am I missing something?

I think it was said they release it on Saturday.

Cynthia is correct, Cale. 

We will release the next volume on Saturday.

Thanks!

What Cynthia has stated is correct. The 1st one (Genesis) I noticed was released when advertised (not sure of the day), the 2nd one (Leviticus) was definitely last Saturday.

EDIT: Jonathan has chimed in with the official answer. Probably while I was composing mine Smile

Thank you all! I was thinking I got the Leviticus commentary last Friday, but no, it was Saturday. Working on patience. Smile

This is another high quality resource being offered. Unfortunately I already have it but I'm sure many others will enjoy picking it up.

I don't yet have any from this series, so it is very much appreciated Yes

André Kamphuis:

I certainly appreciate the people at Faithlife and Fortress Press for offering these titles for free. Here's what D. A. Carson had to say about Paul J. Achtemeier's 1 Peter commentary in his New Testament Commentary Survey (6th edition):

The fullest commentary in English at the exegetical level is that of Paul J. Achtemeier (/Hermeneia; 1996, $50.00). It is a masterpiece of careful scholarship. The parallels are full but not intrusive. Achtemeier has a knack for getting to the heart of an issue quickly, while his footnotes allow more advanced readers to pursue fine points. The writing is clear, and much of the exegesis admirable. Nevertheless, he tentatively holds that the epistle is pseudonymous, opting for a date in the 80s or 90s. His exegesis at a few critical points (e.g., 2:13) strikes me as being far more controlled by contemporary agendas than is warranted by accurate handling of the text. Nevertheless, it is much stronger than another one of similar length—the AB commentary by John H. Elliott (2000, op/$60.00), which is so controlled by Elliott’s “home for the homeless” thesis (see below) that most of the vision is driven by social-science perspectives. (136)

How does it work? I put it on Twitter, but I can't download the free book. So actually I am not speaking the truth on Twitter.

I had to use Opera browser instead of IE 11 and twitter since IE 11 did not light up orange. Deleted the tweet and tried again from Opera and worked fine.

IE is being relegated to MS' graveyard. Firefox had no trouble for me. Great commentary for us. Thanks Faithlife! Geeked
