Free Stuff Fridays (MasterLectures)

Free Stuff Fridays

This week’s Free Stuff Friday is sponsored by MasterLectures, the video streaming platform from Zondervan Academic, who also sponsored the blog this week.

They are giving away five copies of Faith Alone: The Doctrine of Justification, by Thomas R. Schreiner. In this book, Dr. Schreiner looks at the historical and biblical roots of the doctrine of justification. He summarizes the history of the doctrine, looking at the early church and the writings of several of the Reformers. Then, he turns his attention to the Scriptures and walks you through an examination of the key texts in the Old and New Testament.

I also want to remind you that Tom Schreiner and I are hosting a 5-week study of the book of Galatians starting Monday. We’ll be following Dr. Schreiner’s Galatians videos on Zondervan’s MasterLectures platform and discussing the videos each week in a private Facebook group. This will be a unique chance to go deep into Galatians together with a well-known New Testament scholar.

Here’s how to join the Galatians study with Tom Schreiner:

  1. Sign up for the Galatians video course through your MasterLectures account (and be sure to use the code TIMCHALLIES to get the discounted rate).
  2. Then, request to join the private Facebook group.

We’ll begin our study this coming Monday, May 11, so you still have a few more days to sign up. I hope you’ll join us.

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God. The Bible’s life, its voice, its feet, and hands are the life, voice, feet, and hands of God extended toward his people. For that reason among others it is always worthy of our time, our attention, and our dedication.
