SBL/AAR 2014: The Best Exhibitor Discounts

sblThe Annual Meeting for the Society of Biblical Literature and the American Academy of Religion is this week: November 22-25.

I’m not going, but if I were, here are the three exhibitor booths I would head to first:




Front CoverI love Eisenbrauns’s books. Look especially for this deal.

And Carta is fast becoming one of my favorite publishers. At the very least, treat yourself to a look inside Carta’s magnificent Sacred Bridge (or see some images here). Carta will be featuring new titles like Understanding Biblical Archaeology (by Paul Wright) and Understanding the Alphabet of the Dead Sea Scrolls.




Acc 11_Simply Brilliant_logoYou can see Accordance 11 for yourself. Check out their booth for some even-better-than-usual conference discounts this year, as well as some new releases.

More specifically, at SBL/AAR (and ETS) you’ll find:

  • 20% discount on general purchases
  • New N.T. Wright modules
  • 50% off the Essential Collection (for new users only, have to show a conference badge), which is a deal I can’t recommend highly enough
  • Anchor Bible Commentary (86 volumes) for $1099


FORTRESS PRESS (Booths #734 and #735)


DBWE17You can get the whole 17-volume set of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works at a discounted price ($564; regular price is $940), which includes a free copy of Interpreting Bonhoeffer (a good book). See my look inside the brand-new DBWE 17.

Fortress has just released The Fortress Commentary on the Bible, which they’re offering at the special conference rate of $78 (regular price is $120).

There’s a 30% general discount, too, with some deeper discounts on ebooks. All of what Fortress has to offer (including sessions) is here.


Really Cheap Ebooks (Whether You’re At the Conference or Not)


Whether you’re at the conference or not, here are three collections of really low-priced ebooks.

Happy book-hunting!


UPDATE: I nearly forgot to mention again that the BHS Reader’s Hebrew Bible is 50% off at Hendrickson’s booth. More here.

    1. I believe Carta has a storewide/display-wide discount which would include SBL, but am not sure of any more details than that. Definitely worth checking out, though!

What do you think?
