Logos 5: Save a Guide for Future Study

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.

Has this ever happened to you? As you’re reading a book, you come across a topic you’d like to investigate further for personal study or a future message, but you just don’t have time for it right now. So you make a mental note to return to that subject in the coming days or weeks. Unfortunately, when time does allow for the study, you’ve already forgotten what the topic was to begin with. I confess this happens to me more times than I care to admit.

If you can relate, try this helpful hint:

  • Open a Logos resource to a specific location such as Alone with God to page 43 (A).
  • Notice the word justification in the second paragraph on this page (B).

In celebration of Augustus Hopkins Strong’s birthday, you can use coupon code STRONG13 to take $20 off his entire collection through August 5!

Who was Augustus Hopkins Strong?

Strong was among the most notable Baptist theologians of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His theology combined traditional Reformed emphases with Baptist convictions. Renowned for his work in Systematic Theology, Strong influenced generations of believers with his focused historical criticism of the Scriptures. Now, with this 15-volume collection, you have access to this American theologian and professor’s insights, observations, and wisdom.

About his works

Strong’s approach to Scripture was reverent and thoughtful. His most famous work, Systematic Theology (included in this collection), is one of the most respected texts of its kind. It remains a required textbook in seminaries, pays attention to detail despite its vast scope, and continues to be used for personal studies decades after being published. Here are some highlights from this three-volume edition:

“A perfect system of theology is impossible. We do not expect to construct such a system. All science but reflects the present attainment of the human mind. No science is complete or finished.” Continue Reading…

Lexham Bible Guides: Your Tools for Better Research

lexham-bible-guides-pauls-letters-collectionMy first college class on Paul’s letters overwhelmed me so much that I chose Paul’s shortest letter for my final paper. I knew that if I focused on anything longer than Philemon, I might miss something—there’s just too much published research about Paul and his letters.

As it turned out, I was right: I watched students around me struggle as they tackled Galatians, Romans, and Paul’s other long letters. In the sea of commentaries, they missed major points. If the Lexham Bible Guides had existed back then, my fellow students and I wouldn’t have had this problem.

Biblical research shouldn’t be this difficult. A requirement for entry shouldn’t be how fast you can read or access the right material.
