Take 50% Off Bible Study Magazine

Bible Study MagazineWe’re excited to feature some of today’s most active evangelists in the July/August issue of Bible Study Magazine.

Our cover story gives a behind-the-scenes look at Steven Furtick, New York Times bestselling author and lead pastor of Elevation Church.  Furtick founded Elevation Church in 2006, when he was just 26 years old; now the church, which has reached more than 12,000 in weekly attendance, is one of the fastest-growing in America.

“We find ourselves living a Christian life that is baseline . . . But this kind of thinking is absolutely deficient in [comparison to] the kind of freshness, vitality, and passion that God has called us to.”

—Steven Furtick

Our current issue also features an interview with author, speaker, and human-rights activist Christine Caine, a special article by John Piper, frequently asked questions about Satan, and much more.

Logos 5: Use “Send Hyperlinks Here” for Commentaries

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.

Recently, while reading Marvin Vincent’s Word Studies in the New Testament, I used a minor Logos feature to enhance my commentary work.

I was reading Vincent’s comments on Galatians 2:20, in which he references numerous Bible verses. When I clicked a blue cross-reference, my preferred Bible jumped there.  But I really wanted his commentary to look up the references, so I could read his additional thoughts on the same subject.

So here’s how to accomplish just that:

  • Type Word Studies in the Command box (A).
  • In the dropdown list, click Open Word Studies in the New Testament (B). (You can do this with any resource containing Bible cross-references.)

Take up to 50% Off John Wesley’s Works

John WesleyWho would have thought that “the best loved man in England” endured years of persecution and hate?

Today is the 310th birthday of John Wesley, principal founder of the Methodist movement. For decades, he faced down mobs, torments, threats, and jealousy from his fellow clergyman. His method of open-air preaching drew harsh criticism from his colleagues, but that did little to dampen his spirits. From fields to chapels to markets to fairs, Wesley shared the Gospel wherever there was air to breathe and an ear to listen.

In fact, he traveled more than 250,000 miles and preached more than 40,000 sermons.

4 Interesting Facts about Saints Peter and Paul

Peter and PaulThe Orthodox Church remembers the apostles Peter and Paul each year on June 29, commemorating not only their divinely inspired writings in the New Testament but also their efforts as apostles of Christ.

Here are a few interesting facts about their lives and ministry:

  1. Peter and Paul both ended their ministry as apostles in Rome. The Gospel had reached Rome before their arrival, but they both saw it necessary to journey to Rome and bring apostolic leadership to the church there. Since Peter is not mentioned by name in Romans 16, he arrived in Rome at some point afterwards, perhaps in the late ’50s or early ’60s.
  2. Paul was called to be an apostle on the street called Straight. Acts chapter 9 tells the story of Paul’s mystical encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ. As a Pharisee, he was committed to the persecution of those following “the Way” (Acts 9:2), but was now being confronted by the Lord for his actions. “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” (Acts 9:4). In persecuting the Church, Paul was persecuting Christ himself, for the Church is his Body. Interestingly enough, this street called Straight exists to this day in Damascus, and is the headquarters of the Church of Antioch.

Introducing Noet: Scholarly Ebooks

NoetWhen I explain what an incredible tool Logos Bible Software is for everyone who studies the Bible, I am inevitably asked, “Have you considered using your platform for other kinds of books?”

The answer is yes, we have. But for many reasons we have not expanded beyond the disciplines of biblical and theological studies. When Logos was a desktop-only platform we weren’t sure there was enough digital content—or enough interest—to justify a desktop platform for other fields. Our tools were highly specialized for biblical content, and we were overwhelmed just meeting the pressing, obvious needs of our core market.

But things have changed. Logos is no longer just a desktop software package. Logos is a multi-platform ecosystem for working with electronic texts, which our users employ in different ways. Some work exclusively on the web, some on mobile devices, whereas others use all our interfaces, depending on whether they’re reading, studying, or writing. We’ve listened to our customers and expanded our library to more than 35,000 titles, ranging from ancient texts to reference works to novels. In the process, we’ve built a tool set that’s appropriate for every kind of text-based content. Continue Reading…
