Free Book of the Month: H. A. Ironside’s The Four Hundred Silent Years

“Harry Ironside is a great example of a preacher full of God’s Word.”—R. Kent Hughes

H. A. Ironside’s The Four Hundred Silent Years  is June’s Free Book of the Month!

Henry “Harry” Allen Ironside was one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers. He held honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was frequently invited to lecture at Dallas Theological Seminary.

After serving as a Salvation Army officer for a brief period, Ironside joined the Plymouth Brethren and started what would become a highly successful itinerant ministry of preaching and teaching. He served as pastor at Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, preaching more than 7,000 sermons during his lifetime.

In The Four Hundred Silent Years, Ironside draws from sources like C. M. Grant’s Between the Testaments and the Apocrypha to piece together the timeline between the prophet Malachi and the Gospel of Matthew.

You can get Ironside’s book free throughout the end of June, and when you visit the Free Book of the Month page, you can enter to win the 65-volume Works of H. A. Ironside collection.

Only 3 Days Left to Get May’s Free Book of the Month!

A. W. Pink’s The Godhood of God has been May’s Free Book of the Month, but the month is nearly over. If you haven’t downloaded this freebie, time’s running out!

What’s the Godhood of God? Pink explains this title as follows:

 “The Godhood of God! What is meant by the expression? This: the omnipotency of God, the absolute sovereignty of God. When we speak of the Godhood of God we affirm that God is God. We affirm that God is something more than an empty title: that God is something more than a mere figure-head: that God is something more than a far-distant Spectator, looking helplessly on at the suffering which sin has wrought. When we speak of the Godhood of God we affirm that He is ‘King of kings and Lord of lords.’ “

Biographer Iain H. Murrary says, “The widespread circulation of [Pink’s] writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century.”

When you visit the Free Book of the Month page, you can enter to win the 40-volume A. W. Pink Collection! Download the free book and enter to win the collection before June 1!

Logos 4: A Shortcut to the Harmony of the Gospels

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

mp|seminars Tips Some events in the Bible are recorded in more than one place. For example, the Ten Commandments appear in both Exodus and Deuteronomy. Qualifications for church leadership are listed in both1 Timothy and Titus. Passages in the Bible describing the same event are called parallel passages and a book containing parallel passages is called a harmony.

Perhaps the most popular harmony is a harmony of the Gospels, displaying in parallel columns the Gospels writers’ accounts of the same historical event. To use this resource in print we would normally go to the table of contents and look up an episode in the life of Christ such as his temptations from Satan. The table of contents would direct us to Matthew’s, Mark’s and Luke’s descriptions of the incident.

As you can see, there’s a lot of page-turning involved in using a harmony in print. Logos, however, locates the same information with just one mouse click!

  • Type A Harmony of the Gospels in the Command box (1)
  • Drag the resource from the drop-down list that appears under the Command box to the Shortcuts bar (2)
  • Notice that Logos creates a shortcut icon to open A.T. Robertson’s A Harmony of the Gospels (all Logos base collections except the Christian Home Library contain this book) (3)
  • Open a Bible to a passage in the gospels such as Luke 4.1 (4)
  • Click the new shortcut icon to instantly open A Harmony of the Gospels right to the page displaying Matthew’s, Mark’s, and Luke’s accounts of the three temptations of Jesus!! (5)

To see the other harmonies you own:

  • Open the Library
  • Type this text into Library’s Find box: type:harmony
  • Drag from the Library to the Shortcuts bar harmonies that cover other parts of the Bible such as Synopsis of the Old Testament and Pastoral Epistles.

When you’re reading in the Old Testament or the pastoral letters, click the appropriate icon to open the resource to the page showing parallel passages!

If you like this explanation of a harmony, then you’ll enjoy the new training tool, Introduction to Bible Study with Logos Bible Software, in which I describe numerous Bible study resources and explain how to use them in Logos.
