Liz Curtis Higgs: Overjoyed with Logos Bible Software

Sheila Walsh and Liz Curtis Higgs

Today’s guest post is written by Liz Curtis Higgs. Liz is a New York Times bestselling author of Mine Is the Night, and 27 other books, including her million-selling Bad Girls of the Bible series.

When it comes to biblical research for teaching, speaking, and writing, I’ve always been strictly old school: reference books stacked on my desk, commentaries piled around my feet, and a Strong’s Concordance within reach.

It was cozy and familiar. . . but not very efficient.

I’d waste countless minutes—if not hours—trying to find the right piece of information or a much-needed quote for my work-in-progress, and pulling out my thinning hair in the process.

Then along comes Logos Bible Software, which puts everything I need at my fingertips.

I love the way it looks, like a newspaper on the screen. Simple to navigate, easy to customize, this is a software program for all ages—twenty-something, forty-something, sixty-something—and all levels of computer savvy, from novice to geek.

A Special Word for My Sisters Who Love the Word

Logos 4 is very chick friendly. I watched 40 of us click away like pros after a short, helpful tutorial at the Women in Ministry Summit. It could’ve been the complimentary Starbucks from Team Logos—boosting our brain power, but I still remembered how it all worked when I got home. So I’d say good programming, rather than my Chai Tea Latte, deserves the credit.

We also got a sneak peek at Vyrso, a Christian reading app and ebook store, which Logos recently launched. I was tickled to find my upbeat devotional book, Rise and Shine, among the thousands of titles they’re now offering in Vyrso.

Continued blessings on your efforts to grow and expand. Logos Bible Software makes Bible study not only deeply fulfilling, but also fun!

Here are a few pictures from the Summit. Check out our Facebook album for more snapshots of the day!

The Influential Words of Richard Sibbes

Richard Sibbes was one of Puritan England’s most influential theologians. He was ordained in the Church of England, lectured at Holy Trinity Church in Cambridge, and served as the preacher at Gray’s Inn, one of the most well-known pulpits in London.

While serving at Gray’s Inn, Sibbes grew as a preacher and became very influential among other preachers and theologians.

Sibbes’ thoughts, which influenced the writings of Thomas Goodwin, John Cotton, and others, can be found in The Works of Richard Sibbes (7 vols.). On Pre-Pub now, The Works of Richard Sibbes includes over 3,700 pages of his writings including a commentary on 1 and 2 Corinthians, expositions on the Pauline epistles, sermons, a biography on Sibbes, and more.

Here’s what others have said about Richard Sibbes’ writings:

“Sibbes never wastes . . . time. He scatters pearls and diamonds with both hands.”—C. H. Spurgeon

“I shall never cease to be grateful to Richard Sibbes, who was balm to my soul at a period in my life when I was overworked and badly overtired, and therefore subject in an unusual manner to the onslaughts of the devil. . . . I found at that time that Richard Sibbes. . . was an unfailing remedy. His books The Bruised Reed and The Soul’s Conflict quieted, soothed, comforted, encouraged, and healed me.”—Martyn Lloyd Jones

“A ‘soul of goodness’ informs every fiber and filament of his thinking…there is not a page without food for the spiritually hungry.”—Rev. Alexander Ballock Grosart

Be sure to take advantage of this great deal while The Works of Richard Sibbes is on Pre-Pub for just $79.95—that’s under $12 per volume!

Bestselling Author Carol Kent Raves about Logos Bible Software

Carol Kent and Logos Presenter Scott Lindsey during the Women in Ministry Summit.

Last week we ran a blog post on one attendee’s experience at the Women in Ministry Summit Logos hosted. We wanted to share another testimonial of how this day of training and fellowship positively impacted these ministry leaders.

Today’s guest post is from the founder of Speak Up Ministries, Carol Kent, who attended the Summit. Carol is an international public speaker and the bestselling author of several books. She blogs and directs an annual Speak Up Conference to equip the next generation of speakers, writers, and leaders.

Do you have a heart for teaching God’s Word, but a limited budget? Have you ever wondered which reference books you should purchase to best get prepared to minister to others? Do you love the Bible and long to share truth with your Bible class, retreat group, or small group?

I could have answered “Yes” to all of those questions before I was introduced to Logos Bible Software. Now, instead of spreading reference books all over my dining room table to prepare for a message, I have an entire library loaded on my laptop, so I can study on a plane, in my home, or on the road.

Logos Bible Software has revolutionized the way I do Bible study. I have Greek and Hebrew definitions of Bible words at hand by hovering my curser over any verse.

Preparation that used to take me twelve hours for one message now takes only a third of that time.

I love this software, but the best part of Logos is the people who work for this remarkable company. I have never experienced customer service that is so personalized and helpful. Scott Lindsey and the Logos team who sponsored The Women in Ministry Summit in Dallas made learning fun! They were patient, long-suffering, humorous, giving, and encouraging.

I am impressed with their program, but even more, I appreciate the way in which—even at the summit—they created an atmosphere for learning that made the most technologically challenged person feel included. The Women in Ministry Summit rocked in every way.

Here are a few of Carol’s pictures from the Summit. Check out all of the photos from the Women in Ministry Summit in our Facebook album.

Logos Inspires at the Women in Ministry Summit

Some of the attendees of the Summit included (from left to right) Stormie Omartian, Carol Kent, Lysa TerKeurst, Pam Farrel, and Lisa Whelchel.

Logos recently hosted a Women in Ministry Summit where 40 women’s ministry leaders gathered together for training on Logos Bible Software and fellowship with one another.

Today’s guest post is from author and speaker Lysa TerKeurst, who attended the Summit. Lysa is a New York Times bestselling author of Made to Crave and 13 other books. She blogs daily and is the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries.

Have you ever sat down to do Bible study and felt overwhelmed at where to begin? Or, heard a pastor unpack a Scripture in a way you’ve never thought about and wondered why the Bible doesn’t seem as applicable when you study on your own? Or needed to prepare a lesson and felt inadequate because you don’t have a seminary degree?

Me too.

And I’m a Bible teacher.

I’m passionate about studying God’s word. But that doesn’t mean it has come easy.

Until now.

My Bible study world went from black and white to Technicolor when I attended the Logos Women in Ministry Summit. I never knew using Logos software could aid me in my Bible study preparations with such ease, fun, and absolute thoroughness.

I’m amazed.

And not only did I get inspired with this new tool, I got to connect with other women who do what I do. It’s so rare to be with other women who do exactly what I do and know the unique pressures that come along with being a woman in ministry. Logos did such an amazing job of taking care of us, encouraging us, giving us time to connect on a personal level, and pampering us!

Thank you Logos!

I am a raving fan of Logos—the Bible Software and the staff!
