All of Logos 5′s features appear in Gold and above. When you upgrade to Platinum, Diamond, or Portfolio, what you’re investing in is valuable, often hard-to-find content, bundled to give you the best deal.
Here are four key resources included only in Portfolio:
1. BDAG/HALOT—A Greek–English Lexicon of the New Testament (BDAG) and the Hebrew & Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament (HALOT) stand as the authoritative texts on biblical grammar. These resources are must-haves for anyone looking to grasp original-language nuance. Jerker Blomqvist wrote in the Bryn Mawr Classical Review that BDAG “is without doubt the best tool of its kind that exists in any language, and the present edition is decidedly superior to the earlier ones.”
Most scholars pay extra to add the BDAG/HALOT bundle to their libraries—but if you upgrade to Portfolio, you won’t have to.
2. A. W. Pink Collection (40 vols.)—Widely considered the intellectual successor to Charles Spurgeon, A. W. Pink wrote widely about Christian doctrine and timeless cultural issues. Biographer Iain H. Murray notes that the widespread (and posthumous) circulation of Pink’s works “made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century.” With Portfolio, you can trace this important writer’s thought across 40 books, plus 68 pamphlets and booklets.
3. John Hunt Desk Reference Collection (4 vols.)—These volumes, packed with essential quotations, facts, events, and historical figures, represent thousands of hours of curation, organization, and fact-checking. You’ll get the Encyclopedia of Christian Quotations, The New Encyclopedia of Christian Martyrs, The Christian Book of Records, and Footsteps through the Bible, a year-long chronological reading plan.
4. The Origins of Christendom in the West—Church history is one of the evangelical community’s most underrated academic disciplines. Focusing on the church’s first four centuries, but looking forward to the future, this volume gives you a primer on the thinkers and events that brought about the Western church as we know it.
