Now on Pre-Pub: The Henrietta C. Mears Collection

“There is no magic in small plans. When I consider my ministry, I think of the world. Anything less than that would not be worthy of Christ nor of His will for my life.” —Henrietta Mears

henrietta mearsHenrietta Mears was one of the twentieth century’s great Bible teachers. For 35 years, she served as the director of Christian education at First Presbyterian Church in Hollywood, California. Her experience as a former drama instructor, gifts as a teacher, and penchant for memorizing large passages of Scripture brought the Bible to life. Through her leadership, First Presbyterian’s Sunday school attendance grew from 450 in 1928 to 6,500 in 1933.

Dissatisfaction with  available Sunday school curricula led Mears to found Gospel Light Publications in 1933 as a way to distribute her own curriculum. Gospel Light continues as one of the largest providers of Sunday school curricula today.

It would be impossible to assess Mears’ full influence. Not only has she touched the lives of those under her direct care; she has had a remarkable second-hand influence through those she mentored. Continue Reading…

Who was Thomas Manton?

Thomas Manton was an important Puritan preacher and a contemporary of John Owen’s and Richard Baxter’s. He preached hundreds of sermons on Romans 8, Psalm 119, Ephesians 1, Hebrews 6, 1 John, the prayer of Jesus in John 17, and nearly every other book of the Bible—often devoting multiple sermons to a single verse of Scripture.

Both J. C. Ryle and Charles Spurgeon regarded Manton as influential in their own preaching.

Five reflections from Thomas Manton on Romans 8

  1. “Our subjection to God, as our sovereign, is built on our total and absolute dependence upon him, both for our creation and preservation; for we could neither make ourselves, nor preserve ourselves; and therefore we are subject to the will of another, whose we are, and whom we should serve.” Continue Reading…

  3. “He is not to us a God afar off, with whom we have no immediate concern; but a God who is not far from any one of us, in whom we live, move, and have our being, who numbers the hairs of your head, and without whose notice a sparrow does not fall to the ground.”

  1. “Thus we, in our respective situations, may be called upon, by those who are in authority over us, to neglect or violate a positive duty: but we must not give place by subjection, no, not for an hour; but ‘must obey God rather than man;’ and must ‘resist unto blood, striving against sin;’ and glory in death itself, when sustained in such a cause.”
  2. “But the Lord Jesus Christ, by his obedience unto death, has both fulfilled its demands, and suffered its penalties, for us; and has thus freed us from it as a covenant, and has brought us into a better covenant, the covenant of grace.” Continue Reading…

Logos 5: Find Multiple People in the Same Passage

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.

I was recently presented with this question from a Logos user:

Jesus lived and ministered in the power of the Holy Spirit. Is there a Logos search that locates the passages in which both Jesus and the Holy Spirit are mentioned?

The affirmative answer to this question highlights arguably my favorite new Logos 5 feature: the Referent dataset. A Logos research team went through the Bible tagging all the words that point to people, places, and things. In other words, every he, she, we, me, etc., is connected to the correct person, place, or thing!

Using the Clause Search, we can now locate all mentions of people, places, and things, regardless of the words used to identify them. Continue Reading…

Earn 1/5 of Your DMin in Just 9 Days

maccsScripture is packed with striking imagery: the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the fruit of the Spirit, peace like a river, and the Lamb of God, to name just a few.

Although many of these images have become ubiquitous in Christian life, there’s a lot we don’t know about them. What did they mean to the early church? What do they symbolize, particularly in regard to creation and redemption? Which writers focused on which images, and why? Understanding biblical images is integral to interpreting Scripture, yet much of their meaning can be lost in translation. That’s why Knox Theological Seminary’s Dr. Warren Gage is coming to Logos’ headquarters to teach a new class devoted to biblical hermeneutics.

“Gospel Hermeneutics 1: Typology, Symbol, and the Christ” is a five-day course that will earn you three credits toward your DMin from Knox Theological Seminary. This class will examine the Bible’s key images and the meaning behind them. Continue Reading…
