Gain Confidence for Evangelism with Bobby Conway

bobby-conwayWhen I first sat down for lunch with Bobby Conway, I knew right away that it wasn’t going to be your average meal. It wasn’t the food that was exceptional—it was the fellowship.

Dr. Conway is one of those guys who, when you meet him, you think “this guy is for real.” There’s no façade, no masquerade. There’s just Bobby. I could see right away why people would lower their defenses around him and be willing to hear what he has to say about Jesus. This is a guy I need to learn from.

Infectious faith

Whenever you get Dr. Conway talking about his faith, he gets excited. He is truly passionate about sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with believers and nonbelievers alike, and his energy is infectious. He knows from personal experience and the testimony of Scripture that the Christian life is one marked by deep joy and fellowship with Christ, and he can’t help but invite people into that. Yet he is realistic about the questions, the struggles, and the doubts that go along with it. This level of honesty is both charming and refreshing.

After working with Dr. Conway in the Mobile Ed studio, I came away encouraged in my faith and more excited and equipped for evangelism than ever before. I trust that if you take this course, you’ll feel the same.

Logos 5: Use Proximity Search for a Phrase Search

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.

A Logos user recently emailed me stating he was studying Ephesians 2:4 and came across the phrase “but God.” He inquired about finding similarities to that phrase even though it may not be that exact English phrase, “but God.”

There are several ways to go about this, but here is fairly simple method that yields some good results:

  • Open a Bible containing the reverse interlinear option such as The Lexham English Bible (LEB) (A)
  • Navigate to a verse containing the desired phrase such as Ephesians 2:4 with the phrase but God (B)

1-LEB

  • Right click on the word but (C)
  • Select Lemma δέ (D)
  • Select Search this resource (E)

2-right-click-on-but

  • Notice the Search panel opens with the results (F)
  • Type this text after the search query that is the Find box: BEFORE 2 words (G)
  • Notice the search query now reads < Lemma = lbs/el/δέ > BEFORE 2 words (H)

3-search-results

  • Right click on the word God (I)
  • Select the second entry for the lemma which is Lemma θεÏŒς (J)
  • Select Search this resource (K)

4-right-click-on-god

  • Notice a second search panel opens with this text in the Find box: < Lemma = lbs/el/θεÏŒς > (L)

5-second-search

  • Copy / Paste the above query into the first search panel following the words BEFORE 2 words (M)
  • Notice the complete query now reads: < Lemma = lbs/el/δέ > BEFORE 2 words < Lemma = lbs/el/θεÏŒς > (N)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the results

You just located all the places in the LEB that the Greek conjunction de appears 1 or 2 words before the Greek noun theos!

Look carefully and you’ll see all of the results are not the English phrase but God. (O)

6-full-search-query

You’ll find many more searching instructions in the 2-volume set of Logos 5 Training Manuals.

Get 4 Free Volumes: Not Your Average Bible Study

not-your-average-bible-study-seriesIf you’ve already pre-ordered the Not Your Average Bible Study Series, you’re getting 1–3 John, 1 Peter, and the Sermon on the Mount for free too! This is in addition to the already free Jude–2 Peter volume that comes with every pre-order. We’re giving the same deal to anyone who pre-orders through Thursday, July 31!

When we first listed the Not Your Average Bible Study Series, we decided to give away the Jude volume to everyone who pre-ordered it, while pricing the nine-volume collection at the incredibly low price of $19.95. But it turned out that Jude worked better when paired with 2 Peter, so we wrote the 2 Peter study and combined it with the Jude volume, but we still made it free for everyone who pre-ordered the collection. Yesterday, as we were looking over the upcoming volumes in the series—1–3 John, 1 Peter, and the Sermon on the Mount—we decided that we wanted to do something really special: offer the forthcoming volumes for free too!

Improve your Bible study abilities while studying the Bible itself

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 is already tested—as we originally ran most of these studies in Bible Study Magazine. This is one of the most popular sections of Bible Study Magazine. We regularly receive kind emails about how these studies help people get deeper into the Word, teach them to study the Bible better, and help them apply the Word to their life. And that’s why we made these studies into books—to make them available to an even wider audience.

These studies include answer boxes to write in, prayer prompts, and insightful questions. They explore how the biblical story is our story.

This crazy deal will help you get into the Word

Here’s how our crazy deal is going to go:

  • Pre-order now for $19.95, and get four volumes for free: 1–3 John, 1 Peter, 2 Peter–Jude, and the Sermon on the Mount. You have until Thursday, July 31 to get this price. We will ship the first nine volumes on August 1—as promised—and the additional three free volumes will automatically download as they’re released.
  • Right after we ship on August 1, we’re going to raise the price to $24.95—we will be charging for 2 Peter–Jude at that point, but still offering a serious discount on the rest of the collection. We will also still be offering 1–3 John, 1 Peter, and the Sermon on the Mount for free, for a two-week window. This deal will be available until August 14.
  • Come August 15, the price goes up to the full list price of $54.95.

The Not Your Average Bible Study Series is designed for individual or group use. So tell your friends—on your social networks and in person. We believe in these studies and know that they will help you get deeper into God’s Word. Pre-order the Not Your Average Bible Study Series today to get the best price and four free volumes!
