Why a Bigger Library Is Better

Logos 5 Spring SaleLook at your bookshelf. How many books are there? 10? 100? 1,000? Now imagine viewing the entire Portfolio base package library on bookshelves—all 2,585 books lined up, row after row.

You may stop and wonder why anyone would need so many books. Even the most avid scholar would struggle to read all those books cover to cover. Why would you ever want or need more books? Because books power Logos 5’s features.

For example, imagine you’re studying 1 Corinthians and you find that it was a letter written by Paul to the Corinthians in about 55 AD. You go to the Timeline feature and see that Paul was on his third missionary journey and that during this period Nero was reigning in Rome. You click the Timeline event and you’re brought to a passage in The Complete Book of When & Where in the Bible and throughout History.

You read:

Nero Becomes Caesar

Get 30% Off the Oxford History of the Christian Church

William Faulkner famously wrote, “The past is never dead. In fact, it’s not even past.”

Nowhere is this more true than in the history of the church.

Why church history is important

The study of church history involves conversation with our brothers and sisters across time: how they read Scripture, how they wrestled with doctrine, how they worshiped, prayed, and practiced Christian formation. What were their challenges? What were their struggles and doubts?

Studying church history is important because studying the past helps us discern how God is guiding the church in the present. Often, our hopes are their hopes; our doubts are their doubts; our struggles are their struggles.

The church spans time and culture more, perhaps, than any other institution. Learning its history is vitally important. Continue Reading…

Spurgeon on Being Crucified with Christ

SpurgeonA friend asked me recently about what I was doing at work, and I told him a bit about compiling the Spurgeon Commentary: Galatians. He was incredulous. He asked, “You get to read Spurgeon all day?”

I don’t actually get to read Spurgeon all day, but I have been spending a lot of time with the Prince of Preachers lately. It has been a pleasure to comb through his writings on Galatians, find the best nuggets of wisdom, and put them in a format that’s accessible to today’s readers.

You can read more about this resource in my earlier post, and you can pre-order it today while it’s still at a discounted price. In the meantime, here are some of Spurgeon’s thoughts on one of the most popular verses in the book—Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.”

Crucified with Christ:

“When a man finds and knows himself to be linked with Christ, his life is altogether a new life. Crucified, then dead. Crucified, then the old life is put away. Whatever life a crucified man has must be new life. Whatever you have of life was not given you till you came into union with Christ. It is a new thing—as new as though you had been actually dead and rotted in the tomb and then had started up at the sound of the trumpet to live again.”

Understand Differences in Biblical Manuscripts

lexham-methods-seriesThere are translation differences, and there are source text differences. You know a source text difference when you see the notation “MT says” or “LXX says” in your Bible. These are the real differences in manuscripts. And unless you know what you’re looking at, they can be confusing, and perhaps even scary.

How do we trust that God’s Word has remained as he intended it? Textual criticism is the field of study that explores differences between biblical manuscripts and draws conclusions. It’s the field that determines the readings included in nearly all modern translations. It’s also the field behind all the challenging discussions about “biblical sources,” their “readings,” and their “vorlages” in Bible commentaries.

Few people work in this field of biblical studies nearly every day—our Bible scholars do. Their work in Lexham Methods Series: Textual Criticism, the first volume to be released in the series, makes textual criticism transparent and easy to understand. Learn about the technique, and grasp the terminology behind the very technical, but very important, work of discerning which biblical manuscript to translate and interpret. Continue Reading…

Place Your Bid on the Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge

Schaff CollectionFor more than a century, the Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge has set the standard for biblical and theological reference works.

In 1877, German theologian Johann Jakob Herzog asked Professor Philip Schaff to undertake an English reproduction of the second edition of Herzog’s Realencyklopadie fur protestantische Theologie und Kirche. Schaff’s work began in 1880, with the help of Clemens Petersen and Samuel Macauley Jackson.

Since then, this collection has seen the contributions of over 100 editors and 600 scholars, bringing together the most important scholarship from biblical studies, historical and doctrinal theology, archaeology, geography, church history, comparative religion, and more. The resulting work ranks among our time’s best-selling and most-cited Christian reference materials; it’s the first stop for pastors, teachers, parents, students, and scholars looking for comprehensive answers.

“The usefulness of this encyclopedia is to be found in its comprehensiveness. No extant work can match this. It is also particularly strong in biography, where it will be found an invaluable aid to investigation into the lives of the worthies of the past.”
