The High Definition Commentary: Philippians Is Shipping Soon!

High DefGraphics play a huge role in the world around us today; they are everywhere! But one of the places where they are long overdue is in the area of teaching. A picture is worth a thousand words. Graphics provide an engaging alternative to text-only descriptions. Graphics not only make things more understandable, they make them more memorable.

Writing and speaking by themselves often are insufficient to really anchor something in our memories. Imagine that I have preached the standard 30 minute sermon with main points (alliterated, of course!). Prudence demands that I reiterate the big ideas before concluding, right? If I have a graphic associated with each point, including the graphic in my summary helps people call to mind the relevant information. They recall far more of what was said compared to using only a verbal summary.

Here’s what I mean. In the Philippians volume of the High Definition Commentary, 2:1-2 opens with a series of “if” statements designed to make us agree to do whatever it is that Paul is going to ask of us at the end: “If A is true, if B is true, if C is true, then we are compelled to do D.”

Geerhardus Vos’ Reformed Dogmatics: A First-Ever English Translation

Reformed DogmaticsMany important theological works have not been translated into English. For most of the church’s history, the majority of theological writing has been done in Greek, Latin, German, French, Italian, Dutch—not English. There are countless works in the fields of biblical and theological studies that remain untranslated—and therefore inaccessible to English-speaking pastors, Bible students, and scholars.

Logos is changing that. As a start, we intend to translate Geerhardus Vos’ Gereformeerde Dogmatiek into English.

Now on Pre-Pub: The Reformation Trust Collection

Reformation Trust CollectionFor over forty years, R. C. Sproul has been teaching and preaching the Word of God. In 1971, he founded a little ministry in Ligonier, Pennsylvania, with the idea that there was a gap between Sunday School and seminary that needed to be filled.

R. C. Sproul’s passion for God spread like a wildfire—he soon became a highly sought after speaker, and his books sold as fast as they could print them. He started a radio program that is now heard in over forty countries worldwide, he is the executive editor of Tabletalk magazine, and he was the general editor for The Reformation Study Bible.

Ligonier Ministries, now located near Orlando, Florida, has become an international multi-media ministry, bringing people closer to God from many different platforms.

Preview the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary

We are hard at work on final editing of the first volume of the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary, scheduled for release on June 1, 2011. In fact, we’re now far enough along that we’re ready to release a few previews.

We’ve posted the previews on EvangelicalExegeticalCommentary.com/Volumes under the Ezra and Nehemiah section. The first several preview pages show you excerpts from the Introduction. Most of the previews, however, show you the first section of commentary from Ezra.

Evangelical Exegetical Commentary

You’ll notice that the commentary for each pericope is divided into six sections:

  1. Introduction
  2. Outline
  3. Translation
  4. Commentary
  5. Application
  6. Bibliography

Robert J. Morgan Endorses The I-Beam of Message Building

I-Beam of Message BuildingWe received this endorsement of Morris Proctor’s The I-Beam of Message Building from best-selling author and pastor of The Donelson Fellowship in Nashville, TN, Robert J. Morgan. We just had to share it:

Being a good preacher is like being a NFL quarterback, only harder. On any given Sunday, a quarterback has to complete an efficient pass to an alert receiver. But a preacher has to first construct the football; then he has to deliver the thing to receivers who may not be paying attention (maybe because they’re thinking about the Big Game).I’ve been listening to preaching for 59 years and trying to do it for about 40 years; and on any given Sunday I’m likely to get shaken up on the play. But I do believe with all my heart that God’s Word is sufficient for every human need; and that it is best preached expositionally.Like all of us, I just need some occasional coaching.

I’m glad to recommend Moe to everyone who stands behind the pulpit, or who doesn’t use a pulpit at all. Whether we’re rookies or pros, whether we’re in robes, suits, or jeans, whether we’re traditional or contemporary, we can benefit from huddling with Moe long enough to learn about I-Beam. You and your church will be thankful, on any given Sunday.

What About the Theological Lexicon of the New Testament (TLNT)?

Lexicons are some of the most helpful tools in one’s study, particularly when striving to understand how a word or phrase was originally used, and what it might’ve originally meant in a given context.

For Greek lexicons, most folks will say you need BDAG. And you do, it really is the first place you should go when looking deeper into words found in the Greek New Testament. But there are other lexicons too. One that is an excellent supplementary lexicon is Ceslas Spicq’s Theological Lexicon of the New Testament (TLNT), translated (from the original French into English) by James D. Ernest. The TLNT is not exhaustive (it does not treat every word found in the Greek NT), but its entries are helpful and substantive.

10 Powerful Resources for Lent

user wikiFor those who follow the Western church calendar, today is Ash Wednesday—the beginning of Lent.

Lent is a season of preparation that traditionally includes penitence, prayer and fasting, and culminates in the celebration of Easter.

In addition to my regular Bible reading, one tradition that I began a few years ago was deliberately choosing books to read during Lent that would focus my mind and heart on Jesus. I’ve come up with a list, by no means exhaustive, of books that may make for good Lenten reading.
