Beloved preacher and Bible teacher Earl Palmer (First Presbyterian in Berkeley, University Presbyterian in Seattle, National Presbyterian in Washington DC, radio ministry, Kindlings Muse, etc.) has written a number of books of Christian living and accessible commentaries for laypeople. Logos already carries his commentary on 1, 2 & 3 John and Revelation (Preacher's Commentary Series) and Mastering Teaching (co-written with Roberta Hestenes and Howard Hendricks).

I'd like to see a collection of his other books in Logos format (in no particular order):

  • The 24-Hour Christian: Sheer Encouragement for the Christian in the World (Regent College Publishing, 2001); reprint of The 24-Hour Christian: How to Stay Close to Jesus When the World Tugs Hard (IVP, 1987)
  • Prayer Between Friends: Cultivating Our Friendship with God (Regent College Publishing, 1991; Revell, 1991)
  • Trusting God: Christian Faith in a World of Uncertainty (Regent College Publishing, 2006); might be a reprint of Signposts: Living with Christian Values in an Age of Uncertainty (Word, 1990)
  • The Book That James Wrote (Regent College Publishing, 2004; Eerdmans, 1997)
  • Laughter in Heaven: Understanding the Parables of Jesus (Regent College Publishing, 2004)
  • The Enormous Exception: Meeting Christ in the Sermon on the Mount (Regent College Publishing, 2001; Word Books, 1986)
  • Integrity: A Commentary on the Book of Philippians (Regent College Publishing, 1992); reprint of Integrity in a World of Pretense: Insights from the Book of Philippians (IVP, 1992)
  • The Humor of Jesus: Sources of Laughter in the Bible (Regent College Publishing, 2001); might have been previously published under the title Jesus Laughed: Sources of Humor in the Bible (publisher and year unknown)
  • The Book That John Wrote (Regent College Publishing, 1999); might be a reprint of The Intimate Gospel: Studies in John (Word, 1978)
  • Salvation by Surprise: A Commentary on the Book of Romans (Regent College Publishing, 1999); reprint of Salvation by Surprise: Studies in the Book of Romans (Word Books, 1975)
  • Old Law, New Life: The Ten Commandments and New Testament Faith (Abingdon Press, 1984)
  • 1 & 2 Thessalonians (A Good News Commentary, Harper & Row, 1983)
  • A Faith that Works: Weathering the Storms of Doubt (Regal Books, 1985)
  • Love Has Its Reasons: An Inquiry into New Testament Love (Word, 1977)
  • Alive from the Center - a commentary on 1 & 2 Corinthians (Word, 1982)

Incidentally, I have most of those in print. Earl Palmer was my pastor for many years at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle. He's a gem!
