Discover the Godly Women’s Collection

We’ve received some honest feedback on why only 7% of Logos users are female. While thinking about how to address this statistic, we’ve come up with some exciting ideas for this year! One way we’re starting off is by offering a special collection of titles focused specifically on women.

The Godly Women’s Collection (14 vols.) appeals to anyone interested in discovering old and new perspectives of the role of women in the church, involved in various women’s ministry, and curious about what the Bible says about being a godly woman.

This collection brings together fourteen diverse titles that address various topics and concerns related to women. Authors such as Elizabeth George, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, John MacArthur, Nancy Wilson and many others (both male and female) discuss becoming a godly woman by addressing a variety of areas like:

  • Women in the Bible
  • Complementarian and egalitarian views on women in the church
  • Troubles that women often face
  • Creating a women’s ministry
  • Motherhood
  • Many more!

This collection is a great way to discover a variety of opinions on the role of women in the church, gain insight on related topics, and learn practical Scriptural ways to address these issues.

We would love your feedback! How can Logos better serve women in the church? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.

50 Volumes of Ancient Religious Texts on Pre-Pub

50 volumes of Sacred Books of the East might seem like an odd offering from a Bible software company, but I’m looking forward to this as a valuable addition to my library. Here’s why you might like it, too:

Bas-Relief in Persepolis

  1. For about 200 years of the biblical timeline, Israel was under ancient Persian rule. Scads of commentaries make observations about various Jewish beliefs and practices that are often seen as influenced by, or even borrowed from, the Persians during this time. Even in the New Testament, the star-following magi may be of Persian origin. Persian influence is discussed in relation to the resurrection and afterlife, judgment, developments in monotheism as well as the kinds of dualism seen in the Dead Sea Scrolls between the ‘Sons of Light’ and the ‘Sons of Darkness’ (with parallels in the theology of the Fourth Gospel). But the writings of the Persians themselves haven’t been available in Logos Bible Software. 8 volumes of the SBE are dedicated to the literature of Zoroastrianism, the religion of ancient Persia. That means with this set, we’ll be able to start linking discussions in commentaries about the Persian influence on Judaism back to the most important source materials, and we’ll be able to read about one of the most ancient monotheistic religions in their own words.

Revised Edition of the Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament

A few years back, we released something we called the Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament (see the introductory blog post here). In this resource, we comprehensively listed citations of every form of every word found in the Greek New Testament, broken down by their Louw-Nida classification. We also included glosses of each Louw-Nida “sense”. Since the initial release in 2008, we have included it in the Scholar’s Silver, Gold, Platinum and Portfolio editions.

We’ve spent some time revising and updating the lexicon. The initial edition of the Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament was based on the NA27 edition of the Greek New Testament, and did not list forms from any other editions. We’ve updated it to use the SBL Greek New Testament (SBLGNT) as its basis, but we are also listing forms from NA27 and Westcott-Hort that are not found in the SBLGNT.

Why do this? It means that many forms you’ll find in untagged text (e.g. advanced or technical commentaries) will have a destination if you KeyLink from the untagged text into the Lexham Analytical Lexicon. Once you’re in the lexicon you can get to the head entry with a click of the lemma (headword) form in the right-most column.

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.
