New from Morris Proctor: A Practical Video Course on Preaching

Preaching. When it’s great, you never want to go home. When it’s poor, your mind wanders and you day dream and suddenly develop keen insights into why so many people skip church.

I often ask, “Does your pastor preach well?” I often get the answer, “My pastor has a real heart for ministry and is a kind and compassionate person.”

This is good, but at the heart of the matter a preacher needs to be skilled at preaching. It is a New Testament prescribed method for building our faith by understanding God through his Word. Everybody knows that good preaching is a good idea, but few make it a priority.

I can think of no single thing that would have greater impact in the local church than absolutely great preaching during that single hour when the majority of the church members are present. With this in mind, I want to endorse Morris Proctor’s practical course on sermon preparation, the I-Beam of Message Building.

Whether you have been preaching for years and just need to revitalize your sermon prep or whether you want to be a better teacher, or perhaps you feel called to ministry but realize you will never be able to go back to school, this is the tool for you.

Logos 4: Display Basic Search Results Differently

mp|seminars TipsToday’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos
training seminars.

With the recent release of Logos 4.2a comes different ways to display Basic Search results. Here’s how:

Generate a Basic Search and select:

  • Ranked – to arrange the search results in order of relevance determined mainly (but not exclusively) by the number of hits compared to the total number of words in the article in which the hits were found .
  • By Title – to sort the search hits alphabetically by the name of the book then sequentially by chapter or article.
  • By Count – to display the search results in descending order according to the total number of occurrences in each resource.

Personally, I prefer viewing the results By Title because I like looking through a list books to locate just the specific results I need.

Logos 4: Read Your Books in Column Format

mp|seminars TipsToday’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos
training seminars.

One of the downsides to reading traditional print books is that the lines of text are usually very long. Our eyes are constantly moving from left to right and back  left again which slows us down. Newspaper articles, however, appear in columns with shorter lines of text. We read those articles up and down which increases our reading speed. We can now read our Logos books the same way with newspaper columns.

Here’s how:

  • Open a Logos resource such as a Bible or dictionary
  • Click the resource’s panel menu
  • Locate on the menu the option called Columns
  • Select the number of columns (1-5) you want to appear in the panel (Auto allows Logos to adjust the columns based on the width of the panel)

You can now read that resource just like a newspaper! To turn the pages, click the arrows in the lower right corner (lower left corner for right to left resources) of the panel.
