Several months ago we created a Seminary Scholarship site, offering 3 seminary students per year a $1,000.00 tuition scholarship and a copy of Scholar’s Library. Upon launching it, we received numerous requests to start a similar program for those students attending a Bible College. I’m happy to announce that, today, we’re launching a Bible College Scholarship program!
If you attend a Bible College or Christian Undergraduate University, then this scholarship is for you. Three times a year we’ll be giving away a $1,000.00 tuition scholarship plus a copy of Logos Scholar’s Library. The application process is simple, and takes less than 15 minutes to complete. So head over and apply now.
Sharing is Caring
With most scholarships, you typically don’t want to tell your friends about it because the more applicants there are, the less chance you have of winning. With our Bible College Scholarship, the exact opposite is true. The more of your friends who apply, the greater chance you have of being awarded the scholarship!
Everyone who fills out an application is asked how they heard about the scholarship. If a person puts your name in as the one who referred them to the site and they win the scholarship, then we’ll give you the scholarship too!
Not only do you have the chance to win a great Bible College Scholarship, you can help others win it too!
Not a Bible College Student? We Need Your Help
The only way we can continue this scholarship program is if you help us spread the word about it. Please take a moment and share about the scholarship on Facebook and Twitter. Also, if you know any Bible College students personally, please send them an email or give them a call to let them know about this great opportunity.
It’s been six months since we shipped Logos 4, and today we’re releasing our third significant update to the Windows software. Version 4.0c, which will be available later today as a free download, brings many new features and improvements and fixes lots of little bugs. If you have automatic updating enabled (screenshot), which is the default setting, Logos 4 will notify you that updates are ready to be installed.
When you see the balloon tooltip window, right-click on the Logos icon in your system tray and choose to “Install update” (screenshot). If Logos 4 hasn’t downloaded the update by the end of the day and you just can’t wait any longer to get your hands on the latest release, type Update Now into the command bar (screenshot). This will force Logos 4 to check for any available updates (screenshot) and begin downloading them.
What’s New in 4.0c?
There are hundreds of changes in 4.0c. Here are the two biggest ones:
Legacy Reverse Interlinear Display: In Logos 4 we introduced a new layout for reverse interlinears. Most of you loved it, but some preferred the previous layout where the Greek or Hebrew text was directly below the English text. So we’ve decided to add it back in as an option (screenshot). Just click on “Display” and choose which lines you’d like to appear. You can use it along with or instead of the new-style reverse interlinear display.
Passage Lists: Save your Bible search results as Passage Lists, which were called Verse Lists in version 3 (screenshot). There’s also a command to import Passage Lists from version 3 into version 4. Use “Import Passage Lists” to import just the Passage Lists, or use “Import All” to import Passage Lists, Highlighting, Notes, Favorites, and Prayer Lists. One cool new feature of Passage Lists in version 4 is that you can merge lists to get the union, intersection, difference, or symmetric difference or multiple lists.
If you’ve been cautiously watching from the sidelines, waiting for the right opportunity to make the switch to Logos 4, now’s your chance. Logos 4 is better than ever. It’s had more than six months of extensive testing by thousands of users, and our team of developers has been fixing bugs, listening to user feedback, and adding some really cool new features.
There’s a lot more still planned. Version 4.0d is already underway, and we’re in the process of adding these additional features, as well as many others that we can’t tell you about yet.
There’s never been a better time to upgrade to Logos 4. It’s a powerful, stable, cutting-edge piece of software that just keeps getting better and better. Best of all, these regular updates don’t cost you a penny.
What about Logos 4 for Mac?
Progress on the Mac version of Logos 4 recently has been impressive. As Alpha 19.1 shows, it’s coming along quite nicely. We’ve doubled the size of our Mac development team, and they’re really cranking out new features at a fast pace. The consensus is that Logos 4 for Mac as an alpha is better than our previous generation software. So if you haven’t tried it yet, now might be a good time. Remember, you can safely use both Logos for Mac 1.2.2 and Logos 4 for Mac side by side. If you’re ready to help us test it, you can either upgrade your base package or download the core engine and start contributing in the Logos 4 for Mac forum.
The Göttingen Septuagint represents the largest Septuagint project ever undertaken. Published between 1931 and 2006, the 24-volume Göttingen Septuagint contains the most authoritative critical apparatus of the Greek Old Testament ever assembled.
Combining textual evidence from countless manuscripts and ancient sources—including Philo, Josephus, and the Greek Church Fathers—the Göttingen Septuagint is the most detailed and elaborate critical edition of the Septuagint ever published.
The Göttingen Septuagint is the fruit of seven decades of research and publication work. Alfred Rahlfs began the project in the 1920s, and published the volumes on Genesis and Psalms before his death in 1935. William Kappler worked on the Maccabeus volumes before his death in 1944, and Robert Hanhart finished the volume on II Maccabeus and completed III Maccabeus in 1960. Between 1939 and 1957, Joseph Ziegler labored on the books of the prophets, as well as Ieremias-Baruch-Threni-Epistula Ieremiae, Sapientia Salomonis, and Ecclesiasticus.
At Logos Bible Software, we’re committed to promoting Septuagint scholarship and building tools and resources for effective research and study of the Septuagint. Now, we’re thrilled to announce that the Göttingen Septuagint is ready to go into development. Even though we don’t have quite enough orders to cover costs, this resource is simply too important for Septuagint scholarship to wait any longer.
Once this goes under development the price will jump, so you still have a few more days to lock in your order at the current price.
To give you an idea of how good a deal this is, remember that a print version would set you back over $3,000.00. Other digital editions cost $400.00 for just the Pentateuch. That makes pre-ordering the entire Göttingen Septuagint for $299.95 from Logos the right choice. That’s an amazing deal on 65 resources in 24 volumes!
Remember, when this goes into development in a few days, the Pre-Pub price will jump. But if you lock in your order now at $299.95, that’s the price you’ll pay for the entire Göttingen Septuagint on the day it ships.
Walter McDougall, professor of international relations at the University of Pennsylvania, has said, “We all must learn geography in order to learn history.”
This is valuable advice. Geography provides the context for history, and location genuinely matters if you want to understand many of the nuances in historical developments and situations. This is true for a well rounded biblical understanding as well.
In today’s video tutorial we are going to look at the Biblical Places feature that makes it easy to find information on over one thousand places named in the Bible!
In a previous blog post, I mentioned a theologian that influenced Millard J. Erickson—that theologian is Wolfhart Pannenberg. He was Erickson’s postdoctoral mentor. In fact, Pannenberg was one of the three people to whom Erickson dedicated his book, Christian Theology.
You may never have heard of Wolfhart Pannenberg, which is a tragedy, because his theological influence is monumental.
“[Wolfhart Pannenberg is a] German Protestant theologian. In 1950/51 he studied theology under K. Barth in Basle, proceeding to doctoral work in Heidelberg in 1951. During his Heidelberg years he co-operated with a group of younger theologians in the development of a new approach, both exegetical and systematic, to the theology of revelation. This led to the book, Offenbarung als Geschichte, ed. by Pannenberg (1961; Eng. tr., Revelation as History, 1968). After teaching appointments in Wuppertal and Mainz, in 1968 he became Professor of Systematic Theology in the Protestant Faculty at Munich, where he remained until he retired in 1993)” (The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, page 1222).
Pannenberg is best known for this three-volume work, Systematic Theology. One scholar says that in Systematic Theology Pannenberg offers “a voluminous account of every question before offering his own construction. Thus one may count on him for thorough background to most any debate, or one may move directly to the end of the section for Pannenberg’s own argument” (The Dictionary of Historical Theology, page 420). In other words, if you want to get into theology, you need Pannenberg.
