Logos Co-Founder Speaks about the Best-Selling Pre-Pub of All Time

Dale Pritchett

Today’s guest post is from Dale Pritchett, Senior Vice President and Co-Founder of Logos Bible Software.

In the eighteen years we’ve been in business, the single most popular, and perhaps most important, Pre-Pub title we have ever offered is Learn to Use Biblical Greek and Hebrew with Logos Bible Software.

For many years now, schools have been downsizing Greek and Hebrew programs due to decreasing demand. Students have been opting-out of the rigorous language programs in such numbers that we now estimate that less than fifteen percent of all seminary students complete a Greek or Hebrew language course as part of their degree program. You have to believe, as a result, the exegetical skills in the pulpit have been greatly reduced. This concerns us greatly.

This is something we care about.

To change the status quo, we developed Learn to Use Biblical Greek and Hebrew with Logos Bible Software. This series is targeted at the eighty-five percent who opt-out of traditional language programs, as well as those who need to re-invigorate their once-learned skills. We hoped this series would help reverse the trend and make original language studies more accessible to average students. Little did we know how huge the response would be.

Everyone should experience the Bible in the original languages.

We are reaching out this one last time to encourage you to place your Pre-Pub order right away before the price goes up. We encourage you to join literally thousands upon thousands of Logos Bible Software users across the world who are committed to taking their Bible study to the next level by digging into the original languages, perhaps for the first time ever.

You can do this.

The videos are step-by-step. Self-study at your own pace. No previous knowledge of Greek or Hebrew is required. Even English grammar is explained. No rote memorization of forms or paradigms either. You can do this, and we are here to help.

A couple of weeks ago, the two instructors sat down to talk about their experience with the project. Listen to their thoughts here:

The time is now.

Logos users have chosen to pre-order this video series more than any other product we have ever offered on Pre-Pub. In fact, we even had to delay the ship date by two days just to account for the sheer quantity of DVDs we had to order. The good news for you is that it gives you one final chance to get in on the discount.

The training you need to finally get into the original languages is ready. Read more about this incredible training series, watch the introductory videos, preview some of the videos in the series, and place your order right away before the price goes up.

    Hey Dale, Great to see a picture of you after all these years! Tillie and I still remember those days at DTS a few years ago. We still have a piture of me and Andrea that you took.

    I missed this prepub by an inch! I was going to finally place my order yesterday morning, but I left my wallet at home. My plan was to charge it to my new credit card because I didn’t have enough funds in my debit card that I have on file. Anyway, when I got home for lunch, I guess the prepub period was up because the price had gone up. I was under the impression that yesterday (all day) was going to be the last day to order, but I guess it was only half a day.
    It’s alright, I shouldn’t have hesitated that much.
    What I would love to hear, though, are the reviews of those who placed their prepub on time so I can know how the product is. Who knows, it might be something I might purchase in the future. So whenever you get to see the videos make sure you keep those reviews coming!
    Have a great day!

    “We still have a piture of me and Andrea that you took.” How can you still have a picture of you and Andrea if he took it? LOL J/K

    Douglas,
    We’ve set up specific forums for the video series. That’s the best place to get in on the discussion and read reviews as they come.

    That is an alarming statistic (guestimated statistic). If it is even close to being true – where will we be in a generation?
