How to Open Your Favorite Logos Books to the Right Spot, Every Time

sync logos across all devices

A fellow Logos user recently emailed this question to me:

I do my Bible study in the morning which usually consists of reading Scripture followed by reading commentaries and other Logos resources. Often times, I don’t have time to finish the commentary reading at home, so how can I access it later in the day on my iPad and finish reading?

Excellent question with a simple solution through the power of synchronization!

What Does It Mean to Be Unequally Yoked with Unbelievers?

unequally yoked

How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep.”

When Frodo Baggins says these words at the end of the movie The Return of the King, they carry the full weight of someone who is grieving deeply. These words echo some of my relationships. I often wonder: “With all the damage that has been done, how can we ever return to how things used to be?” And, “Was there ever really anything to our friendship at all?”

4 Simple Ways to Make Your Easter Service Awesome

Easter sun rays

Easter is a huge opportunity for your church. There are more people attending church than almost any other time of year. Your Easter sermon is arguably the most important sermon your church will hear all year. And people who almost never go to church and know little or nothing about the Bible will be sitting among your congregation.

You do this every year—so how do you keep it interesting?

You have to decide if things that worked well in the past are reusable. Can you recycle some Easter sermon ideas you used a few years ago? Did you nail the Easter stage design last year? Does your team have the perfect worship set for Easter?

Those are all things for your staff to prayerfully consider and prepare based on the needs and resources of your church.

If you’re looking to freshen up your Easter service this year, Proclaim Church Presentation Software has some free Easter media to help you with the details, so you can focus on what matters—whether you own Proclaim or not you can use our free media to create smooth transitions, set the tone for your service, and compliment your sermon.

Why the Questions Jesus Asked Were about More Than Answers

Jesus questions

Sometimes you have this question about the Bible, this burning desire to know. And you want to know what the whole thing has to say about that question. Ideally, you’d have a year to read through the whole of Scripture, marking it up and taking notes on every passage that spoke to your question.

And I say, don’t give up that ideal. Go for it. But reserve that method for only the most important questions. For others, use the search tools in Logos to “read” all of Scripture for you.

The True Story of An American Missionary on Trial

When Dietrich Bonhoeffer was just a 27-year-old lecturer at Berlin University, he made a bold move: denouncing the principles of the new German chancellor, Adolf Hitler. Bonhoeffer was one of the first Germans to publicly challenge the new fuhrer, criticizing Hitler during a radio address. But before he could finish his talk, Bonhoeffer’s microphone was cut off. (Some speculate the young theologian was one of the first targets of Nazi censorship—others attribute the sudden ending to a technical glitch.)

Bonhoeffer’s Christian faith led him to spend his few remaining years taking a stand against the Nazis—leading an underground church movement, training new pastors, writing Christian books, and even plotting to assassinate Hitler. Twelve years after that broadcast, the Nazis executed Bonhoeffer at the concentration camp in Flossenburg.
