Pre-order the Missions and Church Planting Bundle for 40% Off!

Logos_MobileEd_Bundle_CourseImageLogos Mobile Education’s four-course Missions and Church Planting Bundle is now available on Pre-Pub! Pre-order it today, and get ready to learn about the mission God has for his people.

In Genesis 12:2–3, God tells Abram:

“And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Michael Goheen states that this is God’s “blueprint for the entirety of redemptive history.” It’s a two-part plan, though, in which God first blesses his chosen people and then blesses all the nations through his people. We live in the second stage, and, as God’s people, we ought to feel the burden of carrying the blessing of the gospel to the ends of the earth (Matt 28:18–20).

The Joshua Group estimates that there are 7.1 billion people in the world today, and that 2.91 billion of them live in unreached people groups with little to no access to the gospel. We’re surrounded by those who have yet to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. From Memphis to Mogadishu, we have work to do!

Logos 5: Locate Noun/Verb Combinations

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

This question was recently submitted through our website:

I want to search for the combination of the word “spirit” and all the verbs used with that noun. How can I search for noun/verb combinations?

There are actually several ways to locate this information, but for now I want to emphasize a section in the Bible Word Study guide:

  • Choose Guides | Bible Word Study.
  • Type this in the word box: g:pneuma (A).
  • From the dropdown list, select the Greek word with the glossary breath; spirit (B).
  • If the report doesn’t generate on its own, press Enter to build it.

1-BWS-Greek-word

  • Navigate to the section called Grammatical Relationships. (Please note: this section doesn’t appear in the Starter base package.) (C)
  • Notice the subsection Subject of…, which lists all the verbs in the NT associated with this Greek word! (D)

2-Gramm-Rel

To execute the same search for the most prominent Hebrew word translated spirit in the OT:

  • Type this in the Word box: h:ruah (E).
  • From the dropdown list, select the Hebrew word with the glossary spirit (F).

3-Hebrew-word

  • Notice, again under Grammatical Relationships, the subsection Subject of…, which lists all the OT verbs associated with this Hebrew word (G).

40,000 Books in 18 Months: A Crowdsourced Tagging Project

The Logos forums are a wonderful place. There’s always someone ready to answer your questions and help you get the most from your Bible study. Never has this been clearer than in light of the thread “Theology/Denomination Tags,” which has been home to a fascinating crowd-sourced tagging project for the last 18 months.

A forum user suggested that Logos ought to tag all 40,000 resources on Logos.com by denomination, so that people could know each book’s theological tradition at a glance. That sort of tagging represents a tremendous amount of work, and the poster was initially misunderstood by several in the forum community. But he persisted and clarified his vision. Another user pointed out that users already have the tools to create these tags themselves, and suggested that the community take on the project. Slowly, the two of them won over a number of Logos power-users and forum MVPs. Together, over the course of 250+ posts, they did it. Now you can benefit from their work—just join the “Logos Library Theology/Denomination Tags” group on Faithlife.com!

What did they create?

The team made collection rules for every major denomination and theological category they could think of—78, to be exact.

A collection rule is a set of criteria according to which Logos can search your library. For example, I have a custom collection rule for Lexham Press books—”Publisher:Lexham.” It creates a collection for all the Lexham Press books I own; when I buy new ones, they’re added automatically. I can then quickly search my Lexham collection, or even add it to custom guides.

The forum team created a rule like that for every theological group, from the pre-Reformation to the Reformation and everything in between. Many of these rules are very involved—the Puritans rule, for instance, contains 26 authors, one seminary, and one publishing house.

How can I get it?

When the group reached consensus last month, a forum user created an open Faithlife group around the project. You can join it right now, click the Documents tab, and add their work to your Logos library.

Denominational_tagging_Faithlife

There are two major takeaways here:

First, the Logos forums host a very special digital community. If you’re not involved, you’re missing out. Join the conversation at Community.Logos.com.

Second, Faithlife.com is the glue that holds together the Logos ecosystem. It enables community and collaboration on a remarkable scale. Join the “Theology/Denomination Tags” group, and start benefiting today.

Build Your Spiritual Foundation: Pre-order the Ancient Christian Writers Bundle for 20% Off

ancient christian writersDuring its first four centuries, Christianity produced some of the world’s most profound historical, theological, and philosophical literature. These writings are the foundation for almost all modern Christian theology—many of the beliefs you hold today are built on what St. Augustine, Justin Martyr, Athanasius, Jerome, and others had to say about the Bible so many centuries ago. With the Ancient Christian Writers Bundle, you can draw from nearly 20,000 pages of foundational Christian wisdom. Pre-order the bundle today to get 20% off—that’s over $150 in savings!

The library is neatly divided into four collections:

We’ve partnered with Paulist Press to bring you these theological pioneers’ beautiful writings, some of which had never been translated into English before. The bundle gives you an enormous selection of heart-wrenching martyrdom narratives, intimate letters, remarkable biblical commentaries, and penetrating philosophical and theological treatises.

Centuries of wisdom integrated into your library

Opposition to Christianity is not new. It may wear new faces, but its roots, like yours, grow from seeds that are centuries old. The ancient Christian writers were forced to divide a sea of disbelief to reveal the one true path, buried beneath the waves. This collection lets you consult their wisdom and draw from their inspiring peace, grace, and love.

Modern theologians constantly refer to the works of these ancient writers. Now you can, too. Adding these books to your library enhances the books you already use: these volumes pump the lifeblood of Christian literature into relevant resources, connect references to referents, and offer a deep pool of wisdom for you to plunge into no matter what you’re wrestling with.

Of course, 65 volumes is a lot. All of them add to the value of the resources you already own, but if there are one or two collections you desperately want, you can purchase them individually. Just remember that the complete bundle gives you by far the best deal!

Save Time with a Better Small Group Curriculum

studies-in-faithful-living-patriarchs-collection-complete-church-curriculumAs a small group leader, I’m always on the lookout for high-quality curricula that will save me time.

My church, like many others, increasingly relies on small groups to foster spiritual growth in the community through prayer, service, and study. Because of this, a lot of responsibility falls on the shoulders of small group leaders. It’s an amazing privilege and opportunity, but finding exceptional small group curricula is time-consuming. Great curricula include excellent academic content and conversation topics, but they’re not too challenging or inaccessible. I end up spending a lot of time tweaking and refining curricula to make up for missing aspects. What I want are multifaceted curricula that will give me this time back. The Studies in Faithful Living Patriarchs Collection has been my answer.

Spending your time wisely

The Studies in Faithful Living Patriarchs Collection is a three-volume resource with incredible time-saving potential. This collection includes all-encompassing character studies on three patriarchs: Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph. Group members can pick up the individual books, and leaders can benefit from discussion guides and videos in the complete church curriculum.

When my small group went through Abraham: Following God’s Promise, we found accessible biblical teaching, engaging prose, and motivating application. Every chapter focuses on an important event in Abraham’s life, beginning with an orientation on theme, literary context, and historical and cultural background. Then the chapter offers a deeper look into the story through the lenses of interpretation, original language, and theology. The Studies in Faithful Living volumes even show you how each event connects to other parts of the Bible and other ancient texts—something my small group found especially fascinating. Every chapter ends with application for everyday life and discussion questions that cultivate transformation and action.

The Studies in Faithful Living Patriarchs Collection offers me three valuable character studies that I’m confident my small group will engage and enjoy. I don’t have to spend time tweaking, altering, or tailoring—instead, I can use that time to plan service events or social activities. I can meet with group members individually, and I can pray for them outside small group. The possibilities are endless.

Start saving time, and breathe easy. Pick up the Studies in Faithful Living Patriarchs Collection for your small group today!
