Here's the link to Logos' free book of the month for June 2012:

The Four Hundred Silent Years

by H. A. Ironside

http://www.logos.com/free-book-of-the-month

Overview

“History repeats itself in manifold ways,” writes Ironside in the introduction, “and he who is wise will not despise its instruction.” In The Four Hundred Silent Years, Ironside provides an easy-to-understand account of the period between the end of Malachi and the beginning of Matthew. In it, he provides not merely a chronological outline or a series of biological sketches, but traces the warnings of Ezra and Nehemiah, along with Josephus and other Jewish historians. He covers the end of the priestly rule, the days of the Maccabees, the end of the Asmonean Dynasty, and the Edomites. The final chapter is devoted to a brief commentary on the major writings of Jewish literature, including the Apocrypha. Ironside’s intention to draw practical lessons from the intertestamental period makes this the perfect book for anyone interested in an introduction to this important historical era and the implications for the modern church.

The only problem with the title of this book is that there were not 400 silent years.  Daniel was written during the time of the Maccabees and there were a number of apocalyptic writings (ascribed to figures of hoary antiquity since prophecy was supposed to have ceased).  These apocalypses are important for understanding certain portions of the NT.

It does not show as free, and a Coupon code is pre-filled (7MM12) but there is no button to apply the Coupon code.  I'm wary about pressing "Proceed" in case it will charge my account for the dollar amount.

Anyone else able to get it for free?

thanks

Peter

I was able to get it for free.  When I first tried, it came up as $9.95. It took me a second to realize it was because I had a previous book in my cart.  ;)

What in the world do u mean u were not able to complete it yesterday?  Complete what? U had a whole month to get it and u waited til the last moment? I think you're so full of it man.  Who are u trying kid around here.  Why don't u tell us the truth that u forgot there was a free book of the month and missed out on it period.  Don't be giving lies about how u weren't able to "complete it yesterday." U cannot get it it's too late so beat it and settle for this month's free book of the month.  Gees I swear this forum is making me sick more and more every time I come to read stupidities like this one or how by accident u downloaded the wrong book or didn't mean to purchase a book or how u're saying so long to logos because your stupid computer can't get downloads right.  Man!!!!
