Book Suggestions

In order to properly utilize these suggestions, we need all the following information (all of which can usually be found on Amazon.com or on the publisher’s website):

1. Individual or series title. E.g. “The Fellowship of the Ring” for a single title, or “The Lord of the Rings” for the series title (one book or series per entry, please. If there are multiple books by various authors in one entry, we cannot properly track votes and the entry will be deleted)
2. The author(s)
3. The current publisher. E.g. “Baker” or “Hendrickson”.
4. The copyright/publication date
5. The ISBN (this is included on most Amazon.com book pages under “Product Details”)

  3. Glossary of Later Latin

    Glossary of Later Latin to 600 A.D. by Alexander Souter, Oxford at the Clarendon/Sandpiper, 1949, 0198642040. https://www.amazon.com/Glossary-Later-Latin-600-D/dp/0198642040/ref=sr11?keywords=glossary+of+later+latin&qid=1572414323&sr=8-1

    I'd LOVE to have a Logos copy of

    The Pentateuch as Narrative: A Biblical-Theological Commentary

    by John H. Sailhamer | Feb 21, 1995 It's the best commentary I've run across to help me understand how the Pentateuch is knit together, & to be able to see the final editor's intent in stitching together its various sources. As a conservative, I appreciated Sailhamer's honoring of the traditional authors, while taking into account current scholarship showing the presence of later hands in the edition we have. Because I liked the above resource so much, I took a chance on the Logos version…
