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.

A New Way to Study the Old Testament: Engage Your Eyes and Ears

hebrew-audio-pronunciationsAfter years of waiting, your dream of hearing Hebrew pronunciations during your original-language studies has finally come to fruition. Now you can hear the language, study the text, and uncover a new layer of linguistic study with Hebrew Audio Pronunciations.

This resource’s production was painstaking, but we’ve created a product we know you’ll love—a product that gives seasoned language scholars and beginning Hebrew students alike the ability to see and hear Hebrew in its original form, giving anyone a distinct advantage in Old Testament language studies.

DAL, a Logos user, states:

“Like others, all I can say is ‘Wow, wow, wow!!!’”

Learn from Dr. Randall Buth

Dr. Randall Buth is a leading expert in Hebrew and Aramaic and is the head of the Biblical Language Center in Israel. He has dedicated his life to studying God’s Word and his pursuit to understand Scripture’s original context led him to the Holy Land for biblical-language training.

Since then, Dr. Buth has worked with the Wycliffe Bible Translators, as well as the United Bible Societies as a Bible translator and consultant, but Dr. Buth’s quest doesn’t end there. More recently, he’s become a pioneer in developing curriculum and methodologies for teaching biblical languages—and we were blessed to work with him on this project. It was his knowledge and expertise that helped bring this project together.

More than just a book

The Hebrew Audio Pronunciations resource is more than an MP3 file, more than the Hebrew alphabet, and more than vocabulary. This resource also includes a thorough description of accents, symbols, and characters in the Hebrew language and provides the audio sounds in isolation for each one.

This resource is integrated into Logos 5, and you’ll find it within your interlinears and Hebrew Bibles. Simply right click, select the lemma in the context menu, and pronounce—you’ll hear the Hebrew pronunciation as spoken by Dr. Buth.

This powerful audio tool is featured in your Exegetical Guide under the word-by-word section, your Bible Word Study tool in the lemma section, and in the show-information panel next to the Hebrew lemma indicated by the small speaker icon.

Study Hebrew pronunciation as a whole by selecting Pronunciation from the tools menu, then click Hebrew Pronunciations (Buth) from the drop down menu. There the entire Hebrew alphabet, accents and symbols are further defined.

Intricately tagged throughout your Logos 5 library, Hebrew Audio Pronunciations will take your language studies even further.

Access Hebrew Audio Pronunciations on your mobile device

Hebrew Audio Pronunciations is featured on our mobile apps. Generate a word list from any tagged Hebrew Bibles or reverse interlinears, and the Hebrew Audio Pronunciations resource adds an audio-enabled section for your study. Export these word lists to the Flashcards for Greek and Hebrew app on your mobile device for an enhanced Hebrew study—word by word, wherever you are.

What you’ll get

Here’s a glimpse of what’s included:

  • Philosophy: Get firsthand exposure to the foundational philosophy of Plato, Aristotle, and others as you explore their dialogues and treatises in the original Greek and Latin, survey how they’ve been interpreted historically, and learn about their indelible impact on every person thereafter who asked “why?”
  • Poetry and drama: Experience the glittering Greek and Latin poetry of the ancient masters of verse—including the epics of Homer and Virgil, the tragedy of Sophocles and Aristophanes, and the lyrics and laments of Horace and Ovid.
  • History: Read the earliest Western historiography with the artful prose of Herodotus, Thucydides, Livy, and others as they tell the tales of how Greek and Roman borders were drawn and redrawn through the centuries.
  • Archaeology and sociological studies: Access the latest contextual insights into these texts, and see how these profoundly influential works fit into the ancient societies of Athens, Rome, and Constantinople—setting the course of all subsequent Western art, philosophy, and historiography.

Why Logos editions are better

In addition to the extra space on your bookshelf and cash in your wallet, these Logos editions provide additional layers to your study and research. Dive into the Greek of Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War using Logos’ language tools or read it side by side with the both the English and line-by-line commentary. Get cultural context using the Timeline to see what other events in history were happening at that time. Does the commentator’s reference to Herodotus pique your interest? Click the reference to jump to that exact section of Herodotus’ work—no page flipping required.

Remember, the two-week discount ends August 28. After that, prices will return to the normal Pre-Pub prices. To get the biggest discount, place your pre-order for the Bristol Classics Culture and History Bundle today!
