November Preview Resources

NewInVerbumNow

For the month of November, Verbum Now members enjoy free access to:

Modern Christian Theology

Christopher Ben Simpson tells the story of modern Christian theology against the backdrop of the history of modernity itself. Modern Christian Theology examines the many ways that theology became modern while seeing how modernity arose in no small part from theology. These intertwined stories progress through four parts, spanning from the beginnings of modernity in the late Middle Ages and progressing through the Protestant Reformation, the Enlightenments and awakenings of the eighteenth-century, the nineteenth-century, and through the twentieth-century’s crisis—covering each key personalities or movements from Karl Barth to the nouvelle théologie, liberation theology, and conservative Protestantism in America.

The Apostolic Fathers, part 1, vol 1 and vol 2: St. Clement of Rome

Joseph Barber Lightfoot was an important nineteenth-century Anglican scholar of the Apostolic Fathers, who published editions and translations of them and is particularly known for his defense of the authenticity of the letters of St. Ignatius. Part 1 of his Apostolic Fathers includes his edition and studies on the writings of St. Clement of Rome.

NewInVerbumNow

If you’re subscribed to Verbum Now, you just got access to a bunch of new features! Take a look at what we’ve added:

Parallel Passages in the Pauline Letters

Explore the Pauline letters like never before with the Parallel Passages in the Pauline Letters resource. We’ve thematically organized Paul’s letters for quick comparison and in-depth study. Explore the differences in each of the Pauline greeting formulas; find where Paul shares his longing to visit the Romans, Corinthians, Thessalonians, and Philemon; or see everywhere Paul talks about the relationship between Adam and Christ. If you’re studying Paul, this is an essential resource to quickly see and compare his perspective on a range of specific topics.

Lexham Discourse Bible

The Lexham Discourse Bible features datasets and visual filters that allow you to quickly identify and search the discourse devices in the Old and New Testaments. Discourse Analysis is the study of how authors use linguistic devices to effectively communicate their message. Drs. Runge and Westbury have painstakingly analyzed the discourse of Old and New Testament and annotated it with 20 devices that are common to all languages. These annotations are searchable, so you can find every occurrence of a specific discourse device like direct address or changed reference. And with the use of our reverse interlinear data, you can use the Discourse visual filters to view these annotations in several different English, Greek, or Hebrew bibles. Explore the biblical texts with these datasets and visual filters to provide you with greater insight into the thought and rhetorical strategy of the biblical authors.

Emphasize Active Lemmas Visual Filter

Understanding words and their meanings is foundational to biblical study—that’s why lexicons and Verbum’s Bible Word Study tool are essential for discovering the enduring truths of biblical texts. With the new Emphasize Active Lemmas Visual Filter enabled, Verbum will automatically highlight the word you’re studying in the Bible Word Study tool, your lexicons, and your English, Greek, or Hebrew Bibles. Work seamlessly between the biblical text, your lexicons, and the Bible Word Study tool—and never lose your place again.

Cascadia Syntax Graphs of the LXX Deuterocanon/ Apocrypha

The Cascadia Syntax Graphs of the LXX Deuterocanon/Apocrypha is a syntactic analysis of the entire Greek text of the LXX Deuterocanon and Apocrypha using The Old Testament in Greek edited by Henry Barclay Swete. The database includes graphs that display the syntactic structure of these texts. With this dataset, you can visualize the syntactical components of a clause or sentence to better understand the relationship of its parts to the whole clause.

3 Biggest Discounts during Easter

Verbum Easter Sale

We’ve hand-picked 12 of our most popular resources to discount during the Easter Sale. Check out the 3 best deals below, and visit Verbum.com/Easter to see everything that’s on sale.


1. 52% off
The Works of St. Thomas Aquinas (18 vols.)

St. Thomas Aquinas is perhaps the most influential theologian of the last 800 years. His prolific writings and personal sanctity earned him the title of “the Angelic Doctor,” and his works are consistently cited by prominent philosophers and theologians (Pope Francis cited St. Thomas 19 times in his recent Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitita). The Works of St. Thomas Aquinas (18 vols.) comprises all of Aquinas’ most famous works, including the Summa Theologica, the Summa contra Gentiles, the Catena Aurea, and a variety of insightful commentaries and homilies. This collection was a bargain at its regular price of $629.99, but it’s currently on sale for just $299.99—that’s 52% off!

 


2. 29% off
The Way of the Lord Jesus (3 vols.)

First published in 1983, Germain Grisez’s masterful series on moral theology is widely referenced by seminarians, scholars, and studious Catholics. Much like the Summa Theologica, The Way of the Lord Jesus takes an analytic approach to moral theology, offering detailed, relevant answers to common questions and concerns. In print form, this series would take up significant shelf space and cost upwards of $100. During the Verbum Easter Sale, you can get a superior electronic edition for just $59.99!

 


3. 28% off the
Catholic Mariology Collection (13 vols.)

Drawing from authors such as Pope St. John Paul II, St. Louis de Montfort, Scott Hahn, and others, this collection offers a solid foundation for studying Mary’s role in the Church. Whether you’re looking to deepen your devotion to the Blessed Virgin or simply understand the doctrines surrounding her, the Catholic Mariology Collection (13 vols.) is a valuable resource—all the more so with a $40 Easter discount!
