We’re About to Save You 1,360 Hours

lexham-bible-guides-pauls-letters-collection (1)If you research the Bible, prepare small group lessons, or preach, it would take you at least 1,360 hours of preparation to work through 1 Corinthians and supporting literature. That’s the equivalent of 170 workdays. How do I know this? Because we put more than 1,360 hours into Lexham Bible Guide: 1 Corinthians to save you time. Just think what you could do with that many hours:

  • Take about 12 semester-length college courses
  • Conduct more than 900 counseling sessions with members of your congregation, spending about 1.5 hours per session
  • Write your own book on 1 Corinthians—since you’ll have the historical and cultural background and the various viewpoints of top commentators from working through Lexham Bible Guide: 1 Corinthians
  • Develop 17 new outreach programs, spending about 80 hours planning each one
  • Work through a five-hour first-aid training course—272 times
  • Train approximately 170 volunteer staff members, spending eight hours with each one
  • Log all the required flight time to obtain a private pilot’s certificate, weather permitting
  • Spend 1,360 more hours with your family

 

One of the goals of Lexham Press is to create resources that reduce your preparation time so that you can teach and write more. The recently shipped 1 and 2 Corinthians volumes of the Lexham Bible Guides: Paul’s Letters Collection are perfect examples of this. We want to get you into the Word and reduce any friction that comes with doing so.

Pick up the Lexham Bible Guides: Paul’s Letters Collection and start saving time today. It will be well worth the investment.

Get Limited-Time Introductory Discounts on Noet Bundles!

Noet-bundles

Last week, we announced the free Noet mobile app. But the brand-new app isn’t the only exciting news—discipline-specific Noet libraries are shipping, too! Through January 27, you can take advantage of introductory savings on these powerful scholarly resources.

Students, professors, biblical scholars, book lovers—here’s what Noet bundles can do for you:

Students

If you’re studying the humanities, Noet gives you the academic advantage.

1. Noet bundles help you learn more, faster. You can search your whole library, see Greek and Latin definitions with a tap, save notes across all your devices, and more. You’ll spend less time flipping through tables of contents and scrolling through JSTOR, and more time on the real reading, writing, and learning.

Here’s just some of how Noet helps you out:


2. Noet bundles are a way better deal than textbooks. Right now, you’re probably paying hundreds of dollars for just one semester’s worth of books. With Noet, that same money gets you entire discipline-specific libraries. For just a fraction of what you already have to spend, add the Noet library that fits your study—a secret weapon that’ll help you for the rest of your academic career.

3. Noet bundles fit your major or emphasis. You’ll get the core texts in your field of study:

  • Philosophy major? Pick up the 18-volume Ancient Philosophy Bundle (Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle) and the 21-volume Modern Philosophy Bundle (Descartes, Spinoza, Hume, Kant, and others).
  • Classics or history major? Round out your library with the famous 51-volume Harvard Classics: Homer, Plato, Aurelius, Milton, Virgil, Shakespeare, Darwin, and much more.
  • English major? Add the 20-volume Harvard Fiction Collection—Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Dickens, and more.
  • Ancient-language major? Choose from the 7-volume Classical Latin Bundle (Cicero, Seneca, Virgil, and more), the 6-volume Biblical Greek Bundle (Nestle-Aland 27th Greek NT, Idioms of the Greek NT, Liddell and Scott Greek–English Lexicon, and more), and the 8-volume Classical Greek Bundle (LSJ, the Iliad, and texts from Aristotle, Aeschlyus, Herodotus, and others)
  • Or go with the library that’ll give you a leg up in every humanities class you ever take: the immense Classical Foundations Bundle.

You’re getting the best texts, the best study tools, and the best deal, all in libraries tailored to your interests. Take advantage of limited-time savings on the Noet bundles that fit your study.

Professors

noet-classical-foundations-bundleYou’re an expert in your field, so you want tools that know it just as well as you do. Tools that help you plan lessons, make connections, build sound arguments, and draw out nuance. Tools that make you even better at your job.

With Noet, you can:

  • Run powerful cross-library searches to find the arguments and references you need to know.
  • Set a primary source to scroll in sync with its commentary or translation.
  • See Greek and Latin gloss and morphology with a tap.
  • Save lesson-prep time with Noet’s quote slides and timelines.
  • Replace those inscrutable handwritten marginalia with highlights and searchable notes that sync across all your devices.

Don’t want to use up your book budget? Make it easy with a payment plan: you can lock in your launch savings, start using your new library right away, and spread out the payments over up to 12 months. (First, you can even try out Noet for free: download the 1,114-volume Perseus Classics Collection and the free Noet app and get to know the platform.)

Pick out the bundles that match your teaching load, or grab the entire Classical Foundations Bundle before the price goes up!

Biblical scholars

noet-biblical-greek-bundleYour core scholarly interest isn’t philosophy, history, literature, or the classics. It’s Scripture. But even if the Classical Foundations Bundle isn’t for you, you can still benefit from Logos’ work in the humanities:

  1. Download the Noet mobile app—it’s a free, useful resource for grasping context.
  2. Grab “the best tool available for studying classical Greek background of the Bible”: the free Perseus Classics Collection.

Then, depending on your area of study, you might still conclude that a Noet bundle is right for you:

  • If you’re interested in the early church, the Ancient Philosophy Bundle will set you up to study the Greek intellectual climate leading up to early Christianity.
  • If you’re interested in apologetics, the Modern Philosophy Bundle will help you get to know some of modernity’s best-known arguments both for and against God.
  • If you’re interested in exegesis and ancient languages, Noet’s Greek and Latin bundles—especially the Biblical Greek Bundle—will help you understand the NT as it was originally written.

Don’t have Perseus and the new Noet app yet? Download them for free, and then check out all the Noet bundles.

Avid readers & lifelong learners

noet-harvard-fiction-collectionMaybe you don’t read to improve your grades or prepare a paper. Maybe you read for the sheer pleasure of connecting with like minds across the centuries. “If you spend enough time reading,” said David Foster Wallace, “You find certain writers who [make] your brain vibrate like a tuning fork . . . . And when that happens, reading those writers—not all of whom are modern—becomes a source of unbelievable joy.”

The whole point of Noet is to break down the barriers between you and the text:

  • Even if you don’t speak Greek or Latin, you’ll appreciate original-language nuance.
  • Even if you’re not a trained historian, you’ll follow lines of influence through history.
  • You’ll get a library preselected for quality, making it easier to find books you love.

Plus, if you’re anything like us, your plans for 2014 involve lots of learning. Noet’s a really great way to hack your education: the free app lets you take otherwise wasted time—your bus ride, the five- or ten-minute chunks you spend waiting in line—and turn it into personal growth. Noet bundles help you optimize your learning even further by equipping you with the very best books and study tools.

So, this year, invest in more and better reading and learning—get limited-time introductory savings on Noet bundles.

* * *

Now’s the very best time to build your library with Noet bundles—these special introductory discounts are never coming back.

Don’t miss this chance: pick up your favorite bundles at Noet.com/Products before January 27!

 
P.S. Professors: if you’re interested in getting your whole classroom on the cutting edge of digital research in the humanities, shoot us an email at sales@noet.com. Students: interested in ditching your paper textbooks and adopting the Noet platform full-time? Ask your advisor about moving the syllabus to Noet. Not a student, but know and care for someone who is? Tell them about the free Noet app!

Life at Seminary: Inspiration and Advice

Seminary_Scholarship_WinnersDallas Theological Seminary student Jason Roszhart was the recent winner of the quarterly Seminary Scholarship: $1,000 and a Logos 5 Bronze base package!

Because all Dallas Theological Seminary students receive a Logos base package upon enrollment, Jason asked if he could pass along his base package to another deserving recipient. He selected his close friend of six years, Kyle Lundquist, a student at Talbot School of Theology, the seminary of Biola University.

Jason, who currently works as a youth pastor, is pursuing his master’s in theology. Kyle is in his third semester of an MDiv; he works at his local church as a youth and young-adult pastor. We recently had the opportunity to talk with Jason and Kyle about life at seminary:

What inspired you to attend seminary?

Jason: My youth pastor was a DTS graduate, and he really showed the value of studying and understanding Scripture. Later on, Kyle and I spent four and a half months in India doing ministry work. There I met a lot of people who would love the opportunity to go to seminary.  Seeing that made me aware of what an opportune time this is in my life to learn about God’s Word in order that I might further His kingdom.  So many people in India asked us to share our testimonies, so to learn how to do that more effectively is important to me.

What do you hope to do after seminary?

Jason: I hope to be involved in international missions. Transportation and communication have been transformed by globalization, so why not use the benefits of globalization to share the gospel?

Kyle: I want to be working in church leadership for the rest of my life. To be part of a place that fosters community and relationship building. I’m currently working as a youth and young-adult pastor at my church, and it’s awesome to be working with an age group that’s so naturally inquisitive. They’re asking questions and starting to figure out the big reasons behind their faith. Being part of a community that can help answer those questions has been a huge blessing.

What’s your favorite part of seminary?

Jason: The conversations that happen after class, both with peers and with professors. You hear that lecture that stirs you up and makes you think about your faith and God in completely new ways. Then you talk about it. It’s awesome to be surrounded by godly people who also want to digest God’s Word and think biblically.

Kyle: Seminary has changed my life. Simply knowing God has changed my life, but seminary has made me in awe of Him in so many new ways.

What advice do you have to give to anyone interested in attending seminary?

Jason: Obviously, you don’t have to go to seminary to be a Christian. But there is a higher level of study and knowledge in the Bible that needs to be learned in order for it to pass down through generations. Listen to whether you’re being called to do this—to learn and communicate the intricate details and lessons the Bible gives us. Ask yourself if you feel called to church leadership.

Kyle: Be sure to get plugged into the local church. It’s easy to throw all your time and effort into your studies and the intellectual side of seminary, but everything you learn is to ultimately build Christ’s kingdom. And that happens through the relational side. Being involved in my local church makes seminary so much more real and directly applicable. I go to class and study the texts and I automatically see lessons that I want to communicate with the people I pastor.

Any final remarks?

Jason: I feel extremely blessed to be at Dallas Theological Seminary and to be able to utilize Logos resources. However, the sufficiency found in Christ and His willingness to come down to Earth to save us is infinitely better. How wonderful it is to serve a God who blesses us with all of these gifts.

500-book-mega-pack-blogThe year’s nearly over—there are only a couple of days left! If you have more 2013 book budget than you have time left to use it, here are some suggestions to help you take advantage of your funds while you still can.

1. The 500 Book Mega Pack

This isn’t just the biggest bang for your buck this season—it’s the greatest deal we’ve ever offered. You won’t find these 500 books in any base package, and you’ll get an unbelievable discount—more than 96% off! That’s an even better discount than you get with Portfolio.

These are resources you’d normally pay more than $10,600 for—and right now, you’re only paying $399.99. But you’ll have to hurry: this offer is only good through December 31. Come January 1, this collection will disappear entirely—you won’t find it at any price!

2. Logos bundles

Another great option for putting the rest of your annual budget to good use is to pick up one of our new, improved topical bundles, which come in various sizes to fit your budget. Whatever your interests—theology, language, ministry, culture—the perfect bundle is waiting for you. And for just a little while longer, all bundles are 50% off!

If you’ve already purchased one of last year’s bundles, now’s the perfect time to upgrade—you won’t pay for the books you already own, and you’ll get all the new content for half the price.

3. A new base package

Not a Logos 5 user? Now’s the time to jump into a new base package! Pick up one up today for 15% off, and put the power of Logos 5 to work for you.

Josh McDowell calls Logos “a must-have for anyone who is serious about understanding the Word.” You’re going to love doing deeper study in less time. And, as with our other deals, you’ll get a discount based on the titles you already own.
