“This book is marked by the careful exegesis for which Warfield was renowned, and lays a solid foundation for an acceptance of biblical authority. The argument is compelling; I do not believe it has ever been answered.”—John Stott
For nearly a century, Warfield’s writing has helped shape Christian’s perspectives on the authority and inspiration of Scripture.

On September 30 we released over 1,700 free books in the seven Perseus collections. With all the collections available for free download, a lot of people are asking “How can I use Perseus for Bible study?”
Dr. David Instone-Brewer, Senior Research Fellow in Rabbinics and the New Testament for Tyndale House, recently published an informative article on the combined efficacy of Perseus and Logos 4 in studying the Greek context of the New Testament.
“The combination in Logos of the Perseus material and the Duke Databank of Papyri makes this Logos collection more useful for NT research than any other collection of Greek literature,” says Dr. Instone-Brewer. “In my opinion, the Logos implementation of Perseus is now the best tool available for studying classical Greek background of the Bible.”
In the article, Dr. Instone-Brewer digs into the submission of women in the New Testament, and how to study this topic using Scripture alongside Greek classical literature from the Perseus collections.

The Liddell Scott Greek-English Lexicon (known as LSJ) has been a crucial resource for many Logos users in their Greek studies. Now, with the massive update released last week, LSJ is even better.
What makes LSJ so valuable is that it pulls from a massive pool of literature to help you better understand the Greek words you are studying. LSJ’s sources include the Septuagint, the Greek New Testament, a handful of early Christian literature, and thousands of Greek classics.
In light of the upcoming release of the Perseus Classics Collection, we have tagged nearly 200,000 references to the Greek classicsin the Perseus Classics Collection. Now, when reading an entry in this lexicon, you need only hover your cursor over a link, and a popup will show you the context of the resource it’s from. If you right click on the reference, you can go straight to the resource, or even the English translation if it’s available.

Last month we announced the release of nearly 1,500 resources in the Perseus Collection—for free. In case you were wondering why you should bother downloading such a large addition to your library, we’ve compiled five reasons why Perseus is incredible:
C. S. Lewis said, “Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.”Familiarity with the classics of Greek and Roman literature has often been a hallmark of a well-rounded education. Equally important is knowledge of one’s own history and culture. With the seven bundles included in our Perseus Collection, you can browse 340 volumes on 19th century American history, 22 volumes on the Renaissance, and even read hundreds of Greek and Latin classics such as Aristotle, Epictates, Plutarch, Homer, and many more.
In the Perseus Classics Collection we not only have a world class collection of Greek and Latin literature, but we have dozens of English translations as well. So don’t worry if you can’t read Sophocles in the original Greek. We’ve got you covered.
Dictionaries and Lexicons
Greek and Latin lemmas are tagged in hundreds of resources. With the click of a button, you can access dictionaries and lexicons in an instant. The Greek is morphologically tagged allowing you to perform advanced searches and Bible word studies right from your copy of Aristotle or Herodotus.
Believe it or not, adding hundreds of Greek classics to your library can seriously enhance your Bible study. Take Acts 18:13 for example:
“This man is persuading [ἀναπείθω] people to worship God contrary to the law.”
This word, anapeitho, occurs only once in the entire New Testament. It is helpful to have a word occur multiple times to enable translators to give it the correct meaning from context. With more data, it is much easier to determine the intended meaning.
Just by adding the Perseus Classics Collection to your library, you will not only find the one occurrence in the New Testament, but another 191 occurrences of this word being used in classical Greek literature.
If you really want to dig into the Greek New Testament and experience the words used in another cultural context, you are going to love the Perseus Classics Collection paired with Logos Bible Software.
Let’s be honest, isn’t this a great reason? We know you will enjoy these resources as much as we do, and we are thrilled to be offering them for free!
