Do You Skip This Important Bible-Study Step?

LogosPro_blog
Scripture tells the stories of real people living in real places. Abraham left his father’s home in Ur, sojourned in Egypt, and was buried in the cave of Machpeleh. David was anointed by Samuel in Bethlehem, ruled for seven years from Hebron, and spent the rest of his reign in Jerusalem. Jesus performed a miracle at Cana, travelled through Samaria, and appeared on the road to Emmaus after his resurrection.

These aren’t fictitious places made up for a story. They’re real locations you can find on a map. That’s why a good biblical atlas is an essential tool for understanding the geographical and cultural context of the biblical world. [Read more...]

Chaplaincy: Bringing Hope through the Presence of God

Great deals on counseling resources from now until Memorial Day.
This article is part of the Logos Memorial Day Sale. It is written by special guest James Fowler. James is a National Presenter at Faithlife and currently serves as an Army Reserve Hospital Chaplain at Madigan Army Hospital in Washington state. He also helped build the Chaplain’s Library.

“I want to be that guy.” This influential thought was a catalyst that changed my entire life.

At 17 years old I joined the Army Reserve and went to basic combat training. If you are unfamiliar, basic training is an intense introduction to the Army—one that taxes your mind, body, and soul. For example, before going to basic I was not a runner, so I found the morning physical training sessions particularly taxing.

Suffering: The Key to Spiritual Maturity

A mother buries the child she loves. A hardworking husband loses his job. A family goes hungry. All of these scenarios beg the same question: If God is good, why do we suffer?

For some—including many Christians today—suffering is a sign of God’s absence or anger. For others, it is a sign of Satan’s attack. But what does the Bible reveal about suffering? And how did those in the early church interpret their suffering?

In PD201 Introducing Spiritual Formation, award-winning author and internationally-recognized speaker Dr. Gary Thomas (author of Sacred Marriage) teaches the biblical response to suffering and addresses why Christians are encouraged—surprisingly—to rejoice in suffering.

Find the Treasure and You May Win a Base Package!

Oak Island in Nova Scotia, Canada, is the home of the “Money Pit.” Some say it is an ingeniously booby-trapped treasure trove; others, a natural sink hole. It all depends on how skeptical you are.

When the “Money Pit” was first explored in 1795, 18-year-old diggers found a layer of flagstones and then layers of logs every 10 feet. Eight years later, the Onslow Company continued digging, only to discover log layers every 10 feet for 90 feet, plus layers of charcoal, putty, and coconut fiber (confusing, since coconuts are not native to Canada). At 40 feet, the excavators allegedly found a stone with markings. When translated it read: “40 feet below, 2 million pounds lie buried.” Then the excavation flooded, and they gave up.
