How to Study the Bible’s Key Themes

The Bible wasn’t written as a subject-by-subject textbook—its themes and topics are all spread out. That where Logos 5’s Topic Guide comes in.

With the Topic Guide, it’s easy to study the Bible by subject: just search and go!

Explore topics in depth: In addition to biblical texts, you’ll be prompted with relevant material from your library, giving you a deeper understanding of even the most complex biblical topics.

Discover biblical connections: Never miss a related verse. The Topic Guide connects passages from your Bible in a network of themes and concepts. As you delve into your topic, you can always get more specific or more general—jumping from “baptism” to “infant baptism,” for example.

Make a message: Need some inspiration for your sermon or lecture? The Topic Guide is a great way to get started. Then launch the Sermon Starter Guide from the Topic Guide for more teaching and preaching ideas.

God’s Favorite Place on Earth: An Interview with Frank Viola

Gods favorite place on eartFrank Viola is a blogger, speaker, and writer. Viola, the author of several titles available through Vyrso and Logos, has just completed a book titled God’s Favorite Place on Earth. We interviewed Viola to get his perspective on his latest work. 

You recently released a new book, God’s Favorite Place on EarthWhat’s behind the title?

When he came to earth, Jesus was rejected everywhere he went. There was only one exception. In the book, I detail what that exception is, and I show that God wants all of us, as well as our churches, to be his “favorite place on earth” today. The book unfolds how that can be done and what it entails.

Reading the story of Jesus as a narrative may be a new idea for some people. What do you hope people will gain from reading this?

It puts readers into the story. I also blend a great deal of first-century history into the narrative. The result: the Gospels open up and Jesus comes alive. Continue Reading…
