Jonathan Ray:

Paul Caneparo:

I've always valued your input before. Can you say why you've had Garrett systematic theology in your wishlist?  I've never come across it before and have always been satisfied with Grudem as my go-to. $9.98 is a compelling price for an alternative. Will I find anything new or better?

I've also added Garlington's Galatians commentary. I wouldn't regard myself as New Perspective, but at $4.99 it seems a good option for a well regarded exponent of the NP. Have you had any experience of the commentary?

Yeah, I am super excited about this sale. I too had to pick and choose which ones were top priority. Garrett is a Baptist and has taught at Southwestern, which should give you some indication of where he is coming from. There have been some solid evangelical systematics in the past couple decades, but I cannot remember an extensive Baptist systematic theology in that same timeframe. Strong’s Baptist two-volume work is a little outdated to say the least at over 100 years old!

When it comes to Garlington’s Galatians commentary, he’s even says in the title that it is a NPP perspective. Commentaries on Galatians by Dunn and Hays incorporated NPP views and were sort of trendsetters. Gatlington‘s work is fairly recent, so he has had an opportunity to respond to modern arguments against the NPP. My thought is that he will be good to read along with Moo’s BECNT volume that is more traditional.

The issue that I come across over and over again with trying to acurately understand the NPP is that commentaries and monographs are out of date within a couple years of publication. Any chance I get to pick up a 400+ page commentary on Galatians from an overtly NPP author for $5, I’m going to take it every time!

Thanks Jonathan. I'm UK Baptist in theology, but serving in an Anglican Church. Not sure how different that is to US Southern Baptist. Wayne Grudem and Sam Storms would probably be where I'm at theologically. I'll pick up the Garrett books mid month when my next credit card statement is due. I've picked up the Garlington Galatians book for the reasons you outline. Moo and Schreiner will probably remain my go-to commentaries for Galatians, but it's good to have a cheap up to date commentary from a New Perspective viewpoint.

Michael S.:

There are a couple on this list that I always considered Baptistic but not self-labeled. Following the links you provided makes me rethink that conclusion on several of those volumes. Thanks!

Wow!  And Newbigin And Hauerwas.  FTW!  Thanks Faithlife!  Pretty stealthy sale here.

Who?

Lesslie Newbigin - cross-cultural experience in India for many years gave him great insight into the post-Christian West upon his return there.  I particularly appreciate how he consistently addresses the divide between facts and values from the Enlightenment on.  Good advice on how the church bears witness not to a private truth, but a truth that is public (for all), the gospel.

And Stanley Hauerwas..

https://www.logos.com/products/search?q=hauerwas&Author=15018%7cStanley+Hauerwas&redirecttoauthor=true&start=0

I first encountered him in "Resident Aliens", and then "Naming the Silences: God, Medicine, and the Problem of Suffering".  He's an American Theologian that helps think and live Christianly in a culture that largely isn't.

Two volumes by Gary Habermas, one of which is on his research on Near Death Experiences (NDE), and the other one a transcript of his debate with Anthony Flew (the famous debate that caused Flew to renounce atheism).

Thanks for highlighting Habermas’s works! It’s cheaper right now to buy them separately than as a bundle 👍😁👌

Daniel L Block‘s and Gary Habermas’s collections are awesome! 👍😁👌

Though I must agree, that this sale came in at a somewhat bad time. Too many discounted goodies that can add up to a lot of money if one is not careful. ☚ī¸

Buy responsibly!

Agreed. I am trying to purchase judiciously. For all who are being tempted to splurge--remember you have till the 30th to decide!

Also, this awesome publishers' sale gives me hope that it will occur again sometime in the future. That is helping me decide if I really need a title or not.

And since I only had the bundle on my wish list, I didn't notice initially.

Checking all bundles on your wishlists could be worthwhile.
