Our cover story gives a behind-the-scenes look at Steven Furtick, New York Times bestselling author and lead pastor of Elevation Church.  Furtick founded Elevation Church in 2006, when he was just 26 years old; now the church, which has reached more than 12,000 in weekly attendance, is one of the fastest-growing in America.

—Steven Furtick

Take up to 50% Off John Wesley’s Works

John WesleyWho would have thought that “the best loved man in England” endured years of persecution and hate?

Today is the 310th birthday of John Wesley, principal founder of the Methodist movement. For decades, he faced down mobs, torments, threats, and jealousy from his fellow clergyman. His method of open-air preaching drew harsh criticism from his colleagues, but that did little to dampen his spirits. From fields to chapels to markets to fairs, Wesley shared the Gospel wherever there was air to breathe and an ear to listen.

In fact, he traveled more than 250,000 miles and preached more than 40,000 sermons.

Learn from one of the most profound Christian influencers with two special deals:

4 Interesting Facts about Saints Peter and Paul

Peter and PaulThe Orthodox Church remembers the apostles Peter and Paul each year on June 29, commemorating not only their divinely inspired writings in the New Testament but also their efforts as apostles of Christ.

Here are a few interesting facts about their lives and ministry:

  1. Peter and Paul both ended their ministry as apostles in Rome. The Gospel had reached Rome before their arrival, but they both saw it necessary to journey to Rome and bring apostolic leadership to the church there. Since Peter is not mentioned by name in Romans 16, he arrived in Rome at some point afterwards, perhaps in the late ’50s or early ’60s.
  2. Paul was called to be an apostle on the street called Straight. Acts chapter 9 tells the story of Paul’s mystical encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ. As a Pharisee, he was committed to the persecution of those following “the Way” (Acts 9:2), but was now being confronted by the Lord for his actions. “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” (Acts 9:4). In persecuting the Church, Paul was persecuting Christ himself, for the Church is his Body. Interestingly enough, this street called Straight exists to this day in Damascus, and is the headquarters of the Church of Antioch.

Introducing Noet: Scholarly Ebooks

NoetWhen I explain what an incredible tool Logos Bible Software is for everyone who studies the Bible, I am inevitably asked, “Have you considered using your platform for other kinds of books?”

The answer is yes, we have. But for many reasons we have not expanded beyond the disciplines of biblical and theological studies. When Logos was a desktop-only platform we weren’t sure there was enough digital content—or enough interest—to justify a desktop platform for other fields. Our tools were highly specialized for biblical content, and we were overwhelmed just meeting the pressing, obvious needs of our core market.

But things have changed. Logos is no longer just a desktop software package. Logos is a multi-platform ecosystem for working with electronic texts, which our users employ in different ways. Some work exclusively on the web, some on mobile devices, whereas others use all our interfaces, depending on whether they’re reading, studying, or writing. We’ve listened to our customers and expanded our library to more than 35,000 titles, ranging from ancient texts to reference works to novels. In the process, we’ve built a tool set that’s appropriate for every kind of text-based content. [Read more...]

Save Time on Sermon Prep with Proclaim

proclaim_rgb_400x200_v

Many pastors spend more than half their work week on Sunday sermon preparation, and sometimes that takes away from other important pastoral responsibilities. Saving time on sermon prep can be extremely beneficial.

Here’s how you can save a tremendous amount of time with Proclaim:

Store securely

You invest hours in every message. If you work in a traditional word processor or presentation software, it’s only a matter of time until a lightning storm or hard-drive crash wipes out all your work. Proclaim and Logos 5 eliminate this problem with cloud-based storage. Simply put, the notes you make in Logos 5 and the presentations you build in Proclaim are automatically backed up on our servers. That means that if your computer dies or you switch computers in the middle of preparation (for example, from an office desktop to a notebook at a coffee shop), all your work comes with you.

Collaborate in the cloud

Another benefit of the cloud: it’s easy to work with a team. Delegating responsibilities to others lightens your own load and gives others a sense of ownership. [Read more...]
