As Driscoll points out in the video below, whether you enjoy his teaching or you just want to criticize him efficiently and effectively, in a footnoted way . . . this is a great way to access his stuff!
The Mark Driscoll Sermon Archive contains nearly ten years of preaching and teaching by Mark Driscoll, the Preaching and Theology Pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington.
In this massive archive, the transcriptions of his audio sermons preached at Mars Hill Church, which work through fifteen books of the Bible and cover scores of topical issues, and at well over one hundred conferences around the U.S. and world will be made available for reading, searching, and study. That’s ten years worth of preaching and teaching from one of today’s most influential and provocative pastors now available in the most advanced digital format anywhere!

If you’re a Mac user, though, here are a couple of tips that hopefully will come in handy:
When you’re working in a resource window (Bible, commentary, dictionary, etc.) press the keystroke shortcut Tab (for Mac 1.2) to select the current location box. Now just type your new reference. This just saves you from having to click the mouse in the box every time you want to jump to a new location.
While you’re working in your Bible software choose Libronix DLS | Preferences | Appearance to customize your system.
The sixth issue of Bible Study Magazine is just around the corner. We’re putting the finishing touches on the last couple of articles before we hand it over to our design team to lay out and then send off to the printer.
The September–October issue looks like it’s going to be one of the best yet. It features a cover story interview with pastor and theologian John Piper—and lots of other great content to help you dig deeper into the Word.
With the first year of Bible Study Magazine coming to a close, that means it is time to renew your subscription. If you’ve been subscribed since our inaugural issue (the November–December 2008 issue featuring Josh McDowell), the next issue is the last issue you’ll receive unless you renew soon.
All you need to do is visit the Subscriptions tab in your Logos.com account and make sure that the “Auto-Renew” box is checked. Whether your subscription ends with the next issue or not, it’s a good idea to make sure that you’re all set to auto-renew when the time comes.
The next time your subscription is up, we’ll take care of renewing for you. One less thing you need to remember to do.

Four years ago, on July 29, 2005, Bob kicked off the Logos blog with this introductory post. Here’s why we started the blog:
Our goal is to make Logos more open and accessible and to improve our communication with you. Please join us in the process: ask questions, make suggestions, and tell us how we can serve you better.
From our perspective, the blog has accomplished its purpose fairly well. We’ve posted about 950 times—usually every Monday through Friday—more than 15,000 of you get our daily posts in your RSS reader or email inbox, and you respond with great questions and suggestions that lead us to improve our software, products, and websites.
But there’s always room for improvement.
What would you like to be different here at the blog? More posts? Fewer posts? More people blogging? More posts about Greek? Take our new poll, and leave your feedback in the comments or send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Exegetical Guide is perfectly suited for digging deep into the grammar and syntax of a passage of Scripture. It provides you with a wealth of information from your grammars, critical apparatuses, lexicons, and more.
When you’ve landed on a particular portion of Scripture that you’re going to study in depth in the original Greek or Hebrew—perhaps for a sermon or paper—the Exegetical Guide is the tool for the task. But sometimes you may just want to see what your grammars have to say about a verse here and there as you’re jumping from passage to passage following cross references and looking at parallel passages. Did you know that you can use the Exegetical Guide for this kind of study as well?
All you need to do is link your Bible to the Exegetical Guide by setting them to share the same link set (e.g., Link Set A), and the Exegetical Guide will follow you wherever you go—providing nearly instant access to every place your grammars discuss the passage you’re looking at. Just click the chain icon at the top of both windows, and set them to the same letter.
To keep the Exegetical Guide as speedy as possible, you can collapse the sections that you’re not as interested in. Just click the minus sign to collapse a section and the plus sign to expand it again.
This is perfect for the times you’re moving around and haven’t settled on just one passage to dig into to. Give it a try. It’s like having someone looking over your shoulder while you’re studying the Bible and finding every occurrence of the passage you’re in in all of your grammars—only instantly!
Today’s guest 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. In this series, Morris answers the question, “What’s in my library?”
Definition: In addition to providing definitions for Hebrew or Greek words, an analytical lexicon examines the various forms of words used in the original texts. In other words, it not only provides definitions for the lemmas (root words), it also offers information about the inflected or manuscript forms of the Hebrew or Greek words used in the Bible. The analytical lexicon is arranged alphabetically according to the Hebrew or Greek words.
Application: Imagine coming to the word “logos” in your study of John 1:1. You notice the word is used as a subject of a sentence but you’re curious if the word is ever used in a different case as a direct object. An analytical lexicon will get you well on your way to discovering the answer.
MacBibleSoftware.com now has 12 new training videos. If you’re looking to get the most out of Logos for Mac, you’ll definitely want to take some time to watch them.
Reuben Evans walks you through first-time installation, adding additional books to your library, and using the basic tools in the software like the Passage Guide, the Exegetical Guide, the Bible Word Study, the Topic Browser, and the Reference Browser.
He also shows you how to edit your preferences, manage your windows, create workspaces, collections, favorites, and bookmarks, type in Greek and Hebrew, and do various kinds of searches.

Netbooks like the Acer Aspire One, ASUS Eee PC, Dell Inspiron Mini, HP Mini, Lenovo IdeaPad, and MSI Wind are rapidly growing in popularity due to the amount of computer they pack into such a portable size at such a low price point.
One of the things that allows these devices to be so small is the absence of an optical drive. But with no DVD/CD drive, how are you supposed to install your software? There are a few ways to do it (e.g., see this support article), but they can be overly complicated for many users.
Most software still comes on a CD or DVD, but software companies are looking to alternate delivery methods to accommodate the growing number of computers without optical drives. Moving to downloadable software is one solution. It’s something we’ve been doing for a while with most of our add-on collections and books, and it’s something we’re considering for our base collections in the future.
Another option is to move to a smaller, more universal media format—and nothing is hotter right now than flash. The most popular and universal form of flash memory is the USB thumb drive. Every computer has a USB port. But thumb drives have the disadvantage of protruding outside of the computer, making them not a very good choice for long-term use; and they tend to be a tad pricier than other forms of flash memory.
For these reasons we’ve decided to start delivering a media-only* version of our base packages via SD cards. Most if not all netbooks have built-in SD card readers, and since the SD card doesn’t stick out, you can leave it in and run your books right off the card if you need the extra space on your internal hard drive or SSD.
