How would this Ancient Context, Ancient Faith series contribute to Bible Background commentaries by Keener and Evans and others I already have? Each volume is $7.99


They are not commentaries (not versified) so you need to be happy reading them to benefit from them.
Good for background from the descriptive narrative if you have the time for reading. Not really so suitable for quick checks. They try to give you a verbal picture of the life at that time.

Thanks! I bought all except one (Bringing Jesus to the Desert).  The background information is good.  I like Kenneth E. Bailey better, but these will do for now.  Hopefully, Bailey can be on sale next month.  I’m interested in this volume https://www.logos.com/product/45821/poet-and-peasant-and-through-peasant-eyes-a-literary-cultural-approach-to-the-parables-in-luke as I have his others and they provide excellent background material.  Too bad these other volumes are not versified.  I think they should be.

Your wish came true. Not sure if 20% off is as much as you were hoping for though!

It's possible this discounted price will stick around as no specific sale is mentioned in connection with the discount.

Thanks, Paul! If the coupons come in on time I might be able to get it for $5 bucks which is even cheaper than I can dream of 👍😁👌 I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hope to get my 3 $5 coupons soon.

How helpful do you think this is as a resource for preaching? I already have Stories with Intent. How much more does Bailey add to the discussion that might be useful in preaching?

I tend to only buy resources now that are beneficial for preaching. Bailey is always interesting on background. My only hesitation in buying the book will be finances as I note that my other Bailey books cover all the same material except LUKE 11:5-13 and 16:9-13.

Thanks! 

Looking at my books by Bailey, I'd suggest this one is probably best value for money in terms of breadth of coverage of passages that will prove useful in preaching on the Gospels, if you don't have any of his books:

If preaching on 1 Corinthians, this might prove useful:
