We Messed Up, and We’re Sorry

Logos Base PackagesWe’re really sorry about the mess.

We admit it: things got confusing, difficult, and downright weird with Logos 5. We introduced all-new base packages with new names and prices. The website crashed. We threw in a completely new custom discount system. The Minimal Crossgrade came out. And it all went down during the busy holiday season!

That’s a lot to take in, and in the hullaballoo, you may feel like you missed out on the best upgrade opportunity:

The first few months of Logos 5 were crazy, and you’re wishing we’d given you a clearer upgrade message.

Did This Happen to You? Let Us Make It Right!

The confusion has died down. You’ve had time to play with Logos 5, explore the new and enhanced features, watch the videos, read the blog posts, and connect with other Logos 5 fans. You know more about the upgrade discounts than you did when you upgraded—and now you have a chance to get the base package you really want without missing out on that first-time-upgrade discount!

Just email our Sales Department and ask for the Second-Chance Deal, or call them at 1-800-875-6467. You’ll get a clean slate. You’ll get to pick your bigger, better Logos 5 base package and get the huge savings that come with it.

You deserve a shot at the best deal you can get during Logos 5’s introduction, and we’re sorry that we didn’t make all this easier to understand back in November. So seize this opportunity: contact Sales and enjoy the base package (and discount) you really want.

Let’s Get John Owen’s Latin Works Translated!

John Owen, one of the seventeenth century’s most prominent Puritan thinkers, left a body of work that’s been guiding Christians toward God for nearly 400 years. Roger Nicole called him “the greatest theologian who has ever written in the English language.” But not all of Owen’s work was in English, and some of it has remained untranslated since the 1600s.

So we’re undertaking the exciting project of translating The Latin Works of John Owen, in English (3 vols.)! The collection includes John Owen’s massive historical theology, Theologoumena Pantodapa—current translations are very difficult to find—as well as his never-before-translated poetry and lectures, which appear in Latin in the 24-volume Works of John Owen, already available in Logos. The translator is still to be announced, but stay tuned for updates in the near future.

By pre-ordering these three volumes, you’re doing more than just reserving your copy at the best price; you’re helping kick-start a monumental translation project, and helping produce works that previously were available only to scholars. Pre-order The Latin Works of John Owen, in English (3 vols.)

2 Ways to Transform Your Life with Faithlife

https://faithlife.com/bible-2013As long as you’re not a robot, you want a better you. Goals and resolutions are about the need to improve. The New Year brings on these thoughts so strongly because it reminds us of everything that didn’t happen in the last 12 months. By nature, then, our resolutions focus on the negative—that which we’re not. But when God set out to save all of us, by sending his Son to bear our sins, he determined something positive: we are worth saving. As a result, he believes in what we will be—people loving him and others fully (John 3:16–17; 17; Isaiah 53:10–12). Here are two positive ways you can move toward what God has decided you can achieve. I’ll use Faithlife products and resources to demonstrate these two practical ways to stay engaged.

1. Read what God has to say, daily.

Much of what is learned is merely temporary, but what God has to offer lasts for eternity. The investment in knowledge for knowledge’s sake is useless. This seems backward to many, but it was clear to the apostle Paul: “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the intelligence of the intelligent I will confound’”(1 Corinthians 1:18–19 LEB; compare Isaiah 29:14). God wants us to emphasize the message of the cross in our lives. Something so important should never be demoted to a status lower than the daily news. So make it your priority, daily, this year. Use the 365-Day Connect the Testaments reading plan, and follow through each day. (Using the Logos app, you can even export your reading to an Outlook calendar time with a reminder.) It’s not too late to start—just press “catch up,” when you begin, on Faithlife.com or in the Logos app.

2. Listen to what God says, often.

“For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man that is in him? Thus also no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God” (1 Corinthians 2:11 LEB). To know God, and his ways, we must seek his Spirit through prayer. For this purpose, we designed Connect the Testaments: A Daily Devotional, which is currently available for free with the Faithlife Study Bible app. Each devotional ends with a reflection question to help you listen to God. And the current Bible reading plan is designed to work with Connect the Testaments: A Daily Devotional, so that you have a seamless experience of the Bible each day. The devotional makes sense of the text, how it connects to itself, and helps you reflect on what God wants to do in your life. And on top of it all, when used in conjunction with the 365-Day Connect the Testaments Reading Plan, you’ll end up reading the Bible, in a fun format, over the course of the year.

See what the Bible has to say, using the Faithlife app as a catalyst. See the connections in the Bible, see the connections to your life, and see the connections to the lives of others—begin Read the Bible together today.

Introducing 1,500 Quotations for Preachers

I have always enjoyed collections of inspiring quotations, but finding the right quotation is not always easy. Whether I’m looking for something relating to a topic or a to Bible passage, I often find that I miss good content because I’m not sure where to look. I attempted to solve that problem a few months ago with 300 Quotations for Preachers, which categorizes quotations by multiple themes and Scripture references, making them easier to find. The book also updates archaic language to make quotations easier to use in a modern context, and features excerpts of each quotation on an accompanying slide.

There was such a positive response to 300 Quotations that we have now undertaken a more ambitious project: 1,500 Quotations for Preachers. It does the same work of selection and categorization as the earlier book, but on a larger scale and with even more categories. This is new content; none of the quotations from the earlier book are repeated.

1,500 Quotations for Preachers features five books of quotations from different eras of church history—this is our additional level of categorization:

  • The Early Church
  • The Medieval Church
  • The Reformation
  • The Puritans
  • The Modern Church

With Logos 5, these quotations are integrated into the Sermon Starter Guide. It’s easy to find a relevant quote, whether you’re looking for information on a passage or on a topic. This integration can be seen already with 300 Quotations for Preachers and its companion volume, 400 Prayers for Preachers. I searched “resurrection” in the Sermon Starter Guide and found quotes and prayers on that topic:

resurrection

If I click on the first item under 300 Quotations, I get this quote from influential French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal (1623–1662), along with a slide that makes it easy to share:

PascalIt would be impossible to find this quote by searching my library for “resurrection”—even though resurrection is the subject, Pascal doesn’t use that word. Sending the slide to PowerPoint or Proclaim allows me to view it at a larger size and incorporate it right into my sermon slides:

Pascal Slide

With 1,500 of the best quotations selected from almost 2,000 years of church history, you will have even more quotations to choose from and share. Pre-order 1,500 Quotations for Preachers today!

Building a Sermon with Logos 5

It’s Saturday night, and your preaching pastor or Sunday school teacher is sick / has a family emergency / is on a plane to Hawaii. And now you’re suddenly teaching in the morning. What do you do?

I’m going to show you how to build a memorable, powerful sermon with Logos 5’s new Sermon Starter Guide. Hopefully this will shave hours off your prep time—hours that you can spend with your family or give to other ministries in your church.

Let’s build a sermon on Philippians 2:1–4.

I’ll start by typing in Php 2:1–4 in the Sermon Starter Guide search bar:

Logos automatically recognizes that the core message of this passage is humility. What a terrific place to begin! As soon as I hit enter, Logos 5 populates my list with thematic outlines and topics that I can click on to explore things like humility, encouragement, or pride.

Logos 5′s thematic outlines are particularly time-saving in the sermon-building process. They provide lists of cross-references, set up in bullet-point outlines of particular themes you may want to treat in your sermon. If you’ve found one that you’d like to use as a foundation, export it to your word processor—Word, OpenOffice, etc.—or, if you want to show it off to your church or group, put it straight into a presentation program like Proclaim.

I want to focus on “Christlikeness” as my core message, so I’ll pick that outline. Once I’ve exported it to my word processor, I can delete points or add my own.

My sermon now looks like an outline of Bible verses summarized with headers. While it would be great to simply read the Bible to my audience, I think it might be helpful to look up other quotations, sermons, and stories that relate to becoming like Christ. Further down in the Sermon Starter Guide is a section called “Illustrations,” which has its own section on Christlikeness. I find some quotes I like in Nelson’s Complete Book of Stories, Illustrations & Quotes, namely from Charles Spurgeon, which leads me to Spurgeon’s sermon “Christ’s People—Imitators of Him.”

The Sermon Starter Guide has given me several threads to explore, with dozens of resources I can pull into my sermon to help me explain the passage to my group. Whether I want to make my sermon more conversational for a general audience or more exegetical for an informed audience, I can easily follow these threads deeper and deeper until my sermon has the substance and strong points I want, all guided by a single theme.

Every step of the sermon-building process in Logos 5 has been designed to give you substance and save you time. In less than 20 minutes, you can have an outline supported by a dozen or more Scripture passages and guided by a single theme. You can be well on your way into researching illustrations, stories, and visualizations to make your sermon come alive.

Sermon Starter is available only in Logos 5 Bronze and higher, so upgrade your base package now to experience the best in Bible study.
