Logos 5: Record Your Answers in Logos Resources

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

Have you noticed that much of our learning takes places through a question and answer model? When I became a Christian disciple in college, my pastor began mentoring me with the Design for Discipleship series from The Navigators. Using study guides filled with questions, I would read the Scripture and then record my answers in the space provided in the guides.

Logos tries to replicate this question and answer experience with text entry boxes scattered throughout numerous Logos resources.

Allow me to give you a specific example:

  • Click the title of the book in the list underneath the Command box to open it (B)

1-open-Holman

  • Type 150 in the resource’s reference box (C)

2-page-150

  • Press the Enter key to jump to page 150 (D)
  • Scroll until you see the section called Questions for Reflection (E)
  • Notice the text entry boxes underneath the questions (F)

3-questions

  • Type your desired text in the boxes just like you would record answers on lines in study guides (G)

4-answers

Currently this text is not searchable, but it does synchronize between your devices.

Be on the lookout for these text entry boxes all throughout your Logos resources, especially the ones containing questions!

If you enjoy these weekly tips, check out the Logos Bible Software Training Manual Bundle (print edition), which contains hundreds of pages on getting the most out of your software.

Mobile Ed Roundup: Douglas Moo, Studies in the Gospels, and New Podcasts

LME-LogoWith 63 courses available for purchase or pre-order, it’s been an exciting year! As our course offerings expand, we love hearing your feedback. Here’s what others are saying:

“The advantage of Mobile Ed is in the flexibility of accessing the material whenever and wherever I want and in having the lectures, both video and transcript, in my own library.”

“I’m really learning a lot with this course. I’m also taking a [traditional] class… but the videos associated with Mobile Ed give me time to learn without interfering with my job and day to day activities. The lessons are short, sweet and to the point. I wish my school would go to a format like this.”

“Mobile Ed suits my lifestyle, working full time, it works around my schedule rather than the other way around.”

Free R.C. Sproul Book! Surprised by Suffering

free book imageGet R.C. Sproul’s Surprised by Suffering: The Role of Pain and Death in the Christian Life for free through August 29!

In Surprised by Suffering, Sproul fearlessly dives in and answers one of life’s toughest questions: why does God let us suffer?

Sproul argues against the mentality of blaming God for our suffering. He says that pain and sorrow in this life should be expected. Sproul argues that some may be called to a “vocation” of suffering, and all of us are called to undergo the ultimate suffering—death.

Sproul also explains how God promises difficult times for us in his Word, but that he also allows suffering for our good and ultimately his glory. Explore these ideas and more when you get this book, republished in a revised and expanded edition.

In this book, Sproul is both realistic and comforting, offering solid biblical counsel to those undergoing suffering and to those who minister to the suffering. His advice helps believers stand with faith in a God during times of trial.

Plus, get Sproul’s The Holiness of God for only $4.95

Celebrating 25 years of publication, The Holiness of God helps you better understand the biblical picture of God’s holiness—and why it is so foundational to God-centered, God-honoring theology and Christian living. It is a profound, moving investigation of God’s character, which defines all we are and do as Christians. Sproul admits that encountering God’s holy presence is a terrifying experience, yet it’s the only way to cure our propensity to trust in ourselves instead of God.

You Can Still Get 3 Bible Studies for Free

Through September 4, you can get three free Bible studies when you order the Not Your Average Bible Study Series. You’ll get nine volumes for only $24.95, plus three more volumes that are still in production.

The story behind this series

not-your-average-bible-study-series-updates“Why has no one taught me to ask questions like these until now?” This was one of my first thoughts when working on my bachelor’s degree in biblical studies. In May 2008, when we started Bible Study Magazine, we decided to help people ask the types of questions scholars ask. We dedicated our “Not Your Average Bible Study” section to helping you draw your own conclusions about the biblical text, while showing how the Bible’s story is your story. Now, these studies are available for Logos Bible Software as digital books.

We want everyone using this series—we believe in it. This series will take you through a biblical book, verse by verse, showing you what the Scripture means for you today. But we don’t tell you what to think—we let you draw your own conclusions.

A series designed with today’s Bible reader in mind

The Not Your Average Bible Study Series empowers you to:

  • Understand the Bible’s ancient context
  • Ask the same questions scholars ask
  • Apply the Bible to your life, each step along the way
  • Tell the biblical story as part of your own story

This series works great for individuals or groups—it’s designed for both settings. We’ll even have print editions available later, for people who want to use them in a group but have group members who aren’t yet using digital books.

Whether you’ve been studying the Bible your whole life or you’re just getting started, this series will empower you to go deeper into the Bible.

Why you want to get it now

On September 5 this series’ price will go up to $54.95. We originally planned to only make this offer available until August 15, but we decided to extend the offer. Over 2,000 people have already ordered the collection and are enjoying the first nine volumes. Now’s your chance to jump into deeper Bible study.
