Get Introductory Savings On the Eerdmans Gospel Studies Collection

Eerdmans Gospel Studies CollectionRight now, you can pre-order the Eerdmans Gospel Studies Collection for over $30 off!

This 19-volume collection examines the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. You’ll learn about Jesus’ use of parables, analyze the literary features of the canonical Gospels, and assess the Gospel of Thomas. The collection includes an introduction to the Synoptic Gospels, studies on the Gospels’ named women, and comprehensive guides to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Here are just some of the titles you’ll get:

Jesus and eyewitnesses

Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony

In Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness TestimonyRichard Bauckham argues that the four Gospels are closely based on the eyewitness testimony of those who knew Jesus personally.

“Bauckham has delivered a remarkable and insightful volume that is sure to offer a much-needed challenge to the status quo in modern gospel studies.” —Westminster Theological Journal

Women in the BibleGospel Women: Studies of the Named Women in the Gospels

Richard Bauckham offers an in-depth study of both the individual women who appear in the Gospels and the specific passages in which they appear. This unique approach reveals that there is much more to be known about these women than previous studies have assumed.

“The texts that deal with women in the New Testament have been worked over so often it might seem that there is nothing left to say. In this masterful study Richard Bauckham easily proves this is not the case.” —Marianne Meye Thompson, professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

Studies on Jesus parablesStories with Intent: A Comprehensive Guide to the Parables of Jesus

Klyne Snodgrass explores, in vivid detail, the context in which Jesus told his parables, the purpose they had in his message, and the ways they have been interpreted by the church and modern scholarship.

“I have been looking for a book like this on the parables all my career. I celebrate its appearance.” —Charles H. Talbert, distinguished professor of religion, Baylor University

These thorough studies are ideal for scholars, students, and anyone else interested in furthering their study of the Bible.

How Well Do You Know These 2 Surprisingly Complex Biblical Stories?

rethinking-david-and-goliath (1)

You may have noticed that, in the past year or so, we’ve been publishing books on subjects as varied as the epilogue of Ecclesiastes, Augustine’s and Luther’s views on marriage and sexuality, and Christianity and Judaism in Revelation 11. These books all started out as dissertations, and we thought they deserved a broader audience than they would have found sitting on a shelf in a seminary library.

We have two more dissertations on Pre-Pub that you won’t want to miss:

What’s the message of David and Goliath?

In Rethinking David and Goliath, Lisa A. Eary examines the familiar story of the Israelite shepherd boy fighting the Philistine giant (1 Samuel 17). Rejecting some popular understandings of the story, she argues that it’s less about overcoming giants than it is about seeing situations from God’s perspective and acting on faith in that belief. Eary’s dissertation was just completed in 2012, and you can help turn it into a book! Pre-order Rethinking David and Goliath today.

From Babel to Babylon

the-biblical-polemic-against-empires (1)

In The Biblical Polemic against Empires, J. Lanier Burns, research professor of biblical studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, explores the Bible’s attack on Babylon. He started out with an interest in the events of Revelation 17–18 and continued into an exploration of the Old Testament, particularly Genesis 10–11 and various passages in the Prophets. He discovered that the biblical critique of Babylon is dominated by themes of deity, kingship, and city.

In summary, Burns writes, “Ancient Babylonians believed that gods, which were the personified, generative forces of the environment, governed the universe and could be manipulated through cult [that is, a sacrificial system]. This was the basic background of the biblical dispute (and the basic contrast of biblical theology). The faithful Hebrews believed that their personal, righteous, and living God governed creation according to His revealed will, and the cult memorialized His redemptive, historical acts for His covenant people.” Keep learning about the biblical critique of Babylon: pre-order The Biblical Polemic against Empires now.

These books won’t be on Pre-Pub much longer—pre-order yours today!

Free Book! Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church: A Guide for Ministry

biblical-theology-in-the-life-of-the-church-a-guide-for-ministryFebruary has begun, and it’s time for another free book. We’ve teamed up with 9Marks to give you a free copy of Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church: A Guide for MinistryGet yours now.

“I thoroughly appreciated Lawrence’s fresh approach to ecclesiology. While there are many treasures in this book, its primary richness comes from following the flow of redemptive history five times over . . . Looking at biblical theology like one stone with many facets was an exceptionally enlightening approach. This is a book to be read and reread.” —John MacArthur, pastor at Grace Community Church

Ideal for scholars and students

Michael Lawrence assesses the pastor’s tools of the trade—exegetical, biblical, and systematic theology—and commends biblical theology as the most useful. He helpfully distinguishes between biblical and systematic theology, but also emphasizes the importance of their collaboration in ministry.

Biblical Theology in the Life of the Church gives you an understanding of how each part of the Bible fits together. It presents the practical importance of biblical theology for ministry, using the discipline to give a complete history of the Bible from multiple angles. The book is rich in application and practical insight into counseling, missions, caring for the poor, and church relations.

Here’s what people love about Camp Logos 1:

“Absolutely the best in Logos training; each new session builds on the previous one, and you can watch it over and over again!!!”

“It is a very good course. I have had Logos for several years, but I am using it far more effectively since going through these DVDs. I did not know how much I did not know until I finished going through the DVD training. If you already payed for the Logos software and the books, the cost of the training so you can use the material more effectively only makes sense.”

“I’ve studied the Camp Logos 1 DVD-ROM; the training is amazing, simple, concise . . . After following the first camp, I realized that, ‘Did you know that most Logos users only utilize 10% or less of Logos 5’s full potential?’ is really true.”

Logos Named a Best Christian Workplace for 7th Time

Best Christian Workplaces 2014Logos Bible Software has been recognized as one of 2014′s Best Christian Workplaces by the Best Christian Workplaces Institute!

The BCWI surveyed over 135,000 employees from 575 organizations across the globe, including Christian ministries, schools, publishers, and radio stations. The award is based on a 50-question survey that covers job satisfaction, commitment, personal growth, pay, and benefits.

We first won this award back in 2006, when we had around 100 employees. Now we have close to 400. Despite that increase, our work environment still reflects the same core commitments: Honor God. Love others.

Bob Pritchett, Logos president and CEO, said:

“We’ve worked hard to create a great workplace—a  place where our employees can learn, grow, and create a product that helps people all over the world study the Bible.

What makes this award so special is that it’s a reflection of our employees’ feedback. It is based on responses from the people who know Logos best, and that’s very rewarding.”

We’ve recently hit a number of other incredible milestones. Just a few weeks ago, we reached 40,000 resources available in the Logos or Vyrso formats. Earlier this year, we hit 100,000 forum members and half a million posts, and next month, we plan to expand our team into a fourth building in downtown Bellingham, WA.

Despite such huge growth, some things still remain the same: Bob Pritchett still meets and interviews every new employee, and Dan Pritchett, vice president, still takes new hires out to lunch to get to know them better. On their first day, every employee is introduced to our values: HOAGIES, for Honesty, Openness, Awesomeness, Growth, Initiative, Elegance, and Shipping.

You can learn more about our corporate culture by checking out our employee handbook.

Join the team!

We have over 70 positions open, for both employees and interns, across all departments—marketing, ministry development, sales, and more!
