The Bible Speaks Today: New Testament is one of the most relevant resources for Bible study available. John Stott, series editor and author of eight volumes, and other biblical scholars accurately expound the texts, clearly explain the messages, and relate the books to contemporary life.

This extensive 22-volume set takes time to work through all New Testament passages and outline their relevance today.

Learn from John Stott’s careful exposition of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount:

“The followers of Jesus are different, different from both the nominal church and the secular world, different from both the religious and the irreligious. Here is a Christian value-system, ethical standard, religious devotion, attitude to money, ambition, lifestyle, and network of relationships—all of which are totally at variance with those in the non-Christian world.”

Discover David Prior’s fresh and gripping exposition of 1 Corinthians:

“We are unreservedly committed to the church of God where he has placed us . . . we are unhesitatingly confident about God’s desire and ability to make his church in that place like Jesus Christ; that we are uncompromisingly certain about the call for us to be holy, as he is holy.”

Raymond Brown shares encouragement and relevance in each passage of Hebrews:

“In a society obsessed by the lust for possessions, in which people who have never had so much are hungry for more, the Christian rejoices in what he has in Christ, the spiritual treasures which can never be taken away. One of the believer’s most priceless possessions is the promise of Christ’s sufficiency.”

How is Crime and Punishment relevant today?

At first glance, Crime and Punishment may seem like a long, delirious trip through the psyche of a tormented murderer, but it’s so much more.

This classic takes an in-depth look at alienation from society:

  • Dostoyevsky gives life to destructive experiences that tie with removing oneself from their own reality. He opens by exploring the superiority complex of the protagonist, Raskolnikov.
  • When Raskolnikov takes the leap from citizen to criminal, his feelings of alienation intensify; Dostoyevsky provides raw insights, such as: “What was taking place in him was totally unfamiliar, new, sudden, never before experienced. Not that he understood it, but he sensed clearly, with all the power of sensation, that it was no longer possible for him to address these people.”
  • The story continues and in the face of Raskolnikov’s alienation. He is led to the deconstruction of his pride, allowing him to finally care for the loved ones in his life.

Dostoyevsky built some of literature’s most enduring monuments on Christian foundations. Crime and Punishment will give you a clearer understanding of how the church has shaped the world:

  • Dostoyevsky holds the firm belief in a soul. He experienced miserable events that penetrated his life, and he believed happiness was independent of faith. Crime and Punishment focuses on fact that people do indeed have souls, but they can easily be tormented through bad decisions and lapses in judgment.
  • As Raskolnikov takes ownership of his murderous decision and confesses to Porfiry, he is reassured: “You must fulfill the demands of justice. I know that you don’t believe it, but indeed, life will bring you through. You will live it down in time. What you need now is fresh air, fresh air, fresh air!” Once justice is served, Raskolnikov’s soul can find redemption.

Understanding the story behind Crime and Punishment transforms it into a timeless masterpiece exploring relevant themes and topics in the modern world. Plus, you can explore this classic’s context even further with Noet’s enhanced study tools.

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.

“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.”
