Time’s Running Out: Save on This Top-Selling Commentary

Cornerstone CommentariesThe Cornerstone Biblical Commentary series (CBC) is famous for its evangelical scholarship. It equips you with important exegetical and theological knowledge: you’ll study the message and history of each key passage of Scripture, learning about both text and context. And through Friday, January 31, you can use coupon code CBC2014 to get it for 11% off!

“An enormously helpful series for the layperson and pastor alike because it centers on the theological message of each book and ties it directly to the text. This approach has been needed for some time and will be an invaluable supplement to other commentary series.” —Grant Osborne, professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

This commentary will equip you with the exegetical and theological knowledge you need to apply the Bible to modern life. You’ll study passage by passage, and pay special attention to context and important themes.

A trusted commentary on the whole Bible

The CBC is an amazing value, especially when you consider that it covers the entire Bible, allowing you to tackle even those hard-to-interpret passages. For example, take David Baker, Dale Brueggemann, and Eugene H. Merrill’s commentary on Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Many people don’t pay much attention to Leviticus, but Baker, Brueggemann, and Merrill explain three reasons you should: theological, religious, and historical. (Leviticus gives a history of the people of Israel, explains the who, where, when, and how of worship, and gives a background look at how Christians shaped the ancient Near East.)

Leviticus is just one example of an important yet sometimes-hard-to-read passage that the CBC helps you understand. Plus, with 40 contributors, the CBC is theologically balanced—you’re getting up-to-date, respected commentary you can trust.

Don’t wait—time’s almost up! Use coupon code CBC2014 and get the Cornerstone Biblical Commentaries at the best price.

That’s a huge time saver. Plus, your video lectures are completely searchable within your library, so you’ll be able to use them time and time again. This isn’t a textbook you’ll use for only one class. It’s a library of information you’ll keep pulling from long after you’ve finished your formal coursework.

One of the greatest benefits of Logos is that you can take your research, notes, and entire library with you no matter where you go—even on your smartphone or tablet. The same goes for Mobile Ed. Logos brings the professors, the library, the visual demonstrations of software features, and the online classroom community directly to you—on your desktop, laptop, or mobile device.

The series looks not only at the historical context in which the Scriptures were written, but also at how Christians throughout the ages have interpreted them.

“Berit Olam, an outstanding contribution to biblical literature, is a multivolume commentary filling a needed niche in the field . . . recognizing the fine arts of storytelling and poetry that make up the biblical corpus and therefore contributing to a fuller understanding and appreciation of the art forms that constitute the biblical text.” —Robin Gallaher Branch

Studying the Old Testament: 3 Terms to Keep in Mind

5 Types of Dictionaries You Need

Bible dictionaries are enormously helpful (especially in Logos!), and having access to multiple types is useful for comparing definitions, studying context, and making sure you have the most accurate information.

Luckily, with Logos—especially with Pre-Pub and Community Pricing—you can get Bible dictionaries for a fraction of the price, in a far more valuable format.

Logos Just Got Voted a Glassdoor Top Employer—Here’s Why

Glassdoor best places to work.jpgAs employees, we have a behind-the-scenes look at how Logos functions. We can give the most honest, accurate feedback about what it’s like to work here. This year, that feedback landed Logos among Glassdoor’s top 10 best medium-sized companies to work for!

Glassdoor lets employees leave voluntary, anonymous reviews of their employers. Here’s what some of us had to say:

“Most challenging and fulfilling place I’ve worked . . . The feedback is always constructive with a view to making things better or more efficient.”

“A company that is genuinely concerned about its employees and pushes them to grow.”

“I never want to work anywhere else . . . The best thing about Logos is the people. The caliber of talent is amazing . . . Our CEO is always asking how we can make Logos a better place to work and employee suggestions are taken to heart.”

“Challenging job with more opportunity than I could have possibly expected . . . Logos Bible Software is a great place to learn and grow as a software developer.”

You can get a totally candid look behind the scenes at Glassdoor’s page of Logos reviews.

Honor God. Love others.

As companies grow, rules and regulations often increase, and interaction with management often decreases. At Logos, I’ve experienced just the opposite. In fact, a couple years ago, our employee manual was trimmed to just four words: “Honor God. Love others.” Yes, we have an employee manual, but as you can see, it’s based more on how we treat each other, and less about day-to-day rules.

We’re free to make suggestions, free to try big things, and even free to fail: Recently, a fellow coworker made a mistake that cost us a lot of money. Our CEO, Bob Pritchett, responded by saying, “We made a mistake. We own it, we learn from it, and we welcome the chance to show our employees and our customers that we mean what we say about our values and ‘The Logos Way.’”

The Logos Way is what leads to us employees feeling trusted and appreciated. It’s why we give such positive feedback on sites like Glassdoor. Maybe it’s just our way of saying “thank you.” Because when employees are happy, it affects everything—our morale, our products, and our customers.

Don’t just take my word for it—check out Glassdoor’s full list of the best medium-sized companies to work for.
