Logos for Spiritual Formation: the Lectio Divina Workflow


Guest writer Adam B. Shaeffer holds an MA in Spiritual Formation from Talbot School of Theology and a PhD in Theology from Durham University. He is already a big fan of Logos 8.

In this post, I’ll be exploring one of the ways Logos 8 can play a vital role in our spiritual formation.

One of the primary aspects of how we change is establishing new habits, new ways of doing things, and new ways of engaging with the world around us.

Many of us have good habits, but how often do we ask if the habit could be improved? Just because our habits are good doesn’t mean that they are bearing fruit in our lives. Our good habits can actually sabotage our transformation if we do them thoughtlessly. This is, to my mind, one of the primary motivations behind the ancient practice of Lectio Divina. [Read more…]

Kuyper: Are You Keeping Watch over Your Flock?

Many of us reread the Christmas story every year with a sense of routine, or perhaps even staleness. It can be all too easy in our rereading to miss how the Christmas story challenges us in new ways.

In the following excerpt from Honey from the Rock, a brand-new book from Lexham Press, Kuyper invites us to put ourselves in the shepherds’ shoes. Instead of passing over their work as part of the background, Kuyper challenges us to learn from their watch over all that God entrusted to them. [Read more…]

Is Logos for Everyone? Here’s One Simple Reason It Is

Logos can perform some technical Bible study tasks, like morphology queries and syntax searches. That’s why a lot of pastors and scholars use it.

But if you don’t know what morphology is, is Logos beyond you?

Not at all. [Read more…]

How to Use the New Theology Guide

As I’ve talked to Christians throughout the years, I’ve often heard statements like: Theology is just for pastors. I’d like to study different doctrines in the Bible, but I don’t know where to start. Understanding doctrine is difficult.

If you’ve ever expressed such sentiments, I’ve got great news for you. In Logos 8 we have a brand-new research assistant called the Theology Guide. This Guide, based on the resource, Lexham Survey of Theology, assembles various pieces of information in one place so we gain a good survey of major doctrines in Scripture.

Let’s take it out for a spin: [Read more…]

Get 3 Books for under $3

There are only a few days left to get this month’s Free Book of the Month: New Covenant Commentary: 2 Timothy and Titus.

The first Thessalonian church was grieving over those who had died, enduring harsh persecution, and struggling with questions about the future. But according to author Aída Besançon Spencer, Paul offered more than wishful thinking or pie-in-the-sky comfort to the Thessalonian church. He offered the comfort and reassurance of hope in the Messiah Jesus. [Read more…]

I Already Have Logos. Is Upgrading Just Buying It Again?

If you’ve invested in previous versions of Logos, you may look at Logos 8 and think, “Why would I pay for something I already have?”

The short answer is, you wouldn’t. And you won’t.

This post is about Dynamic Pricing, and why it means:

  1. You never pay for Logos features and resources you already own
  2. Upgrading to Logos 8 will cost less than you may think

How Many Times Is Jesus Coming Back?

Few things in the Bible attract more attention than prophecies about the end times. Even people with only a passing acquaintance with the Bible know that it foretells a second coming of Jesus. Those who study the Bible know the book of Revelation reveals that the second coming brings an end to the reign of the antichrist (the “beast”; Rev 19:11–21). The risen Christ, the incarnation of God, returns to earth not as a suffering Savior, but as the glorious warrior-king. But does the Bible describe an earlier return of Jesus—one that precedes this triumphant arrival? [Read more…]
