Offline Word Lookup in the Logos Mobile App

The Logos Mobile app allows you to study the Bible anywhere on your mobile device. Now you can even study Hebrew or Greek words when you’re offline.

(This feature is currently only available in the iOS version of the Logos Bible app.)

To look up words offline, download one or more morphologically-tagged Greek or Hebrew Bibles and at least one Greek or Hebrew lexicon. (This step requires an internet connection.) [Read more…]

How to Choose Your Next Read

I used to feel a lot of pressure to read must-read books. I felt guilty when I saw books on my friends’ shelves that I clearly should have read by that time. Things like Calvin’s Institutes, and whatever else my more advanced peers in biblical studies had read. I still feel some of that pressure, and I think some of it is healthy.

But then one of my favorite writers, Alan Jacobs, liberated me. He recommended that I drop out of the Vigilant School of the Must-Reads and live my reading life under the sign of Whim. I should read what I want. [Read more…]

June’s Free Ebook: Escape from Reason by Francis Schaeffer

Christian apologist Francis Schaeffer profoundly impacted twentieth-century evangelicalism. And few books have shaped the modern Church’s understanding of the culture more than his classic work, Escape from Reason.

Escape from Reason is Schaeffer’s masterpiece of postmodern analysis. He unpacks humanism’s presuppositions and pushes post-modernism to its logical conclusion–total meaninglessness. But in that despair, he counters with the answer to modern man’s existential crisis—the gospel of Jesus Christ. [Read more…]

How to Transition from BibleWorks without Losing All Your Work

We’re sorry to hear about BibleWorks closing. At the end of the day, we’re all in this to help Christians grow through deep study of the Word.

If you’re a BibleWorks user, you may be considering next steps. Should you transition to another Bible software? What will happen to the notes and data you invested into BibleWorks? We’ve spent the last few days working on some ways to help. Here’s what we’ve come up with so far.

BW Crossgrade and Upgrade

Some BibleWorks users have expressed interest in transitioning to Logos. We understand you’ve already made an investment in your BibleWorks library and want to access those same resources if you switch to Logos. [Read more…]

An Introduction to the Men-De Greek Discourse Feature

I was recently studying 1 Peter 3:18 which in the ESV ends with:

being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit

Using the inline interlinear feature I observed at the beginning of the first clause was a Greek word (μέν or men) that wasn’t translated. Then at the beginning of the second clause was a Greek conjunction (δέ or de) which was translated but. [Read more…]

Fighting Spiritual Fatigue with True Soul Rest

In the midst of a cacophony of noise, finding true soul rest is nearly impossible. With so many responsibilities and distractions vying for our attention, too many of us have built unhealthy cycles of rest. As a result, we burn ourselves out, striving and straining against God’s intent for our lives. In Soul Rest, Curtis Zackery reveals how our misaligned view of rest has its roots in an identity that is out of rhythm with God. [Read more…]

Defending Truth in an Age of Confusion: Why Apologetics Matters

This is a guest post from Bobby Conway, pastor of Life Fellowship Church and author of The One Minute Apologist. Get it on Pre-Pub for a limited time.

Like most people, the first time I heard the word “apologetics” I was befuddled. I was driving down Interstate 5 in Southern California en route to work at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, and for the life of me, I couldn’t understand why there was such a stress for Christians to apologize. After showing up at work, I asked a fellow Christian what the word meant—and that’s when I discovered, to my relief, that apologetics means “to defend the faith.”

How to Use Logos Like a BibleWorks Pro

My first serious Bible software program (December, 2002) was BibleWorks, and as soon as I got it I was hooked. I persuaded dozens of others to get it, and I even became an unofficial BibleWorks trainer for about ten years. I taught multiple whole-Saturday sessions on the software. I still use BibleWorks for one ongoing project. Everyone I knew from the company was a true Christian brother and a class act. I’m genuinely sad to find out that BibleWorks is closing up shop.
