Arguably, with the exceptions of Jesus and David, we have an opportunity to know Paul through the biblical text better than any other biblical character. Yet, he remains a mystery—distorted by the breadth and depth of his writings, the often confusing nature of the Acts account of Paul’s ministry, and the reams of literature written on Paul’s letters.
We need a guide through Paul’s letters.
We want to be grounded in the historicity and culture of his world, and the connection points to Acts, while being guided through the various views on his writing—the details are many. But until recently, no such guide has existed. That’s why Logos created Lexham Bible Guides: Paul’s Letters Collection.
Lexham Bible Guides enhance your investment in Logos Bible Software, bring clarity to the vastness of literature regarding a passage, and connect you linguistically, culturally, and historically to the context of biblical books.
Derek R. Brown, PhD, specializing in Paul, is bringing clarity and connection to the print equivalent of rows upon rows, shelves upon shelves—entire sections of libraries—of literature. He has done some of this work with the accompaniment of other researchers and under the editorship of Douglas Mangum, an Old Testament specialist—Paul draws upon the Old Testament often—and contributing editor to Faithlife Study Bible. This task is arduous, and that’s why we’ve done it for you.
For years, users (perhaps even yourself) have asked us to curate the vastness of their libraries—there’s just so much information. We have received requests to have a scholar filter through all of the content and provide a hand-edited framework for passages of the Bible; specific ideas have involved the recommendation of leveraging the content users already own and telling them about other content thus providing an even clearer way to approach the Bible. We know that time is short and we all need more of it. You want an expert to help you and want that expert on call 24-7. That’s what Lexham Bible Guides are for.
Lexham Bible Guides provide the research, the guide, and the media for sharing much of the material—this leaves the part you’re best at up to you. It’s like having a professional researcher alongside you as you read the Bible. If you’re not convinced yet, you can literally email me—the publisher—and I’ll tell you more.
