Find the Treasure and You May Win a Base Package!

Oak Island in Nova Scotia, Canada, is the home of the “Money Pit.” Some say it is an ingeniously booby-trapped treasure trove; others, a natural sink hole. It all depends on how skeptical you are.

When the “Money Pit” was first explored in 1795, 18-year-old diggers found a layer of flagstones and then layers of logs every 10 feet. Eight years later, the Onslow Company continued digging, only to discover log layers every 10 feet for 90 feet, plus layers of charcoal, putty, and coconut fiber (confusing, since coconuts are not native to Canada). At 40 feet, the excavators allegedly found a stone with markings. When translated it read: “40 feet below, 2 million pounds lie buried.” Then the excavation flooded, and they gave up.

Christmas Exclusive: Get Brand-New Commentary Collections

Logos-Christmas-Collections
This Christmas, we’ve hand selected 12 different Christmas collections full of great commentaries just for you. If you’re planning to preach on one of these books of the Bible, lead a Bible study during the Christmas season, or even just further your personal study on books like Luke, Matthew, the Psalms, and more, then these are the perfect collections for you. Each collection comprises over 40 volumes of commentaries that all focus on a single book of the Bible.

For example, here are just five of the volumes included in the Luke Christmas collection:

A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Gospel according to St. Luke

The depth of analysis found in the International Critical Commentary (ICC) has yet to be surpassed in any commentary collection. One of this series’ best features is the extensive amount of background information given in each volume’s introduction, where all the analysis is provided before the actual commentary begins. Each volume packs more information into the introduction than you’ll often find in the body of most commentaries!

The Gospel of Luke: The New International Greek Testament Commentary

This commentary series is established on the presupposition that the theological character of the New Testament documents calls for exegesis that is sensitive to theological themes as well as to the details of the historical, linguistic, and textual context. Such thorough exegetical work lies at the heart of these volumes, which contain detailed verse-by-verse commentary preceded by general comments on each section and subsection of the text.

Luke for Everyone

Tom Wright’s guide to Luke, which includes a wealth of information and background detail, provides insights for our understanding of the story of Jesus and its implications today. Here’s what others had to say:

In this series [Wright] excels as a communicator, making this the most exciting study guide since Barclay’s Daily Study Bible.

The Expository Times

College Press NIV Commentary: Luke

This commentary places modern readers in the shoes of the first readers of Luke’s Gospel. The assumption behind this commentary is that we can only know what Luke means if we know what Luke meant. We’re especially fortunate in this regard to be examining the Gospel of Luke, since Luke—more than any other Gospel writer—tells us what the message of Jesus meant in a later day. To give his readers this information, Luke provides a sequel—the book of Acts. This commentary therefore looks at the Gospel of Luke from the perspective of Acts, the best commentary on Luke’s Gospel, and with a view toward the modern church.

New American Commentary: Luke

Since commentaries are a fundamental tool for expositors or teachers seeking to interpret and apply Scripture in the church or the classroom, the New American Commentary focuses on communicating the theological structure and content of each biblical book. The writers seek to illuminate both the historical meaning and contemporary significance of Scripture.

When combined with the power of Logos 6, these commentaries become even more powerful, allowing you to quickly search and find your passage of study with just a few clicks!

These collections won’t be available for long, so don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of these deals!

Logos 5 Update: Smart Selection

Logos 5Late on Sunday, October 26, we will be pushing out a massive update to many of our major resources.

This update, due to its large size, will take quite a bit of time to download, depending on the size of your library.

Due to the change in these resources, your software will also have to index when finished with the update. It might be a good idea to start your software first thing Monday morning and let Logos begin to update and organize your library.

This update will allow a significant number of your resources to work with the new smart-selection feature. Smart selection is a new Logos 5 feature that will autoselect clauses, sentences, and sometimes even paragraphs as you start to select them from a resource. Once you move beyond a single word or a couple of sentences, Logos finishes selecting the logical phrase or paragraph that would match your selection.

The purpose of smart selection is to simply make it faster and easier to select the text you want. It changes the behavior of the normal click + drag selection from only selecting the characters you drag over to detecting the words, clauses, sentences, and paragraphs that you show the intention of selecting.

For example, in the sentence “I am testing Logos 5′s new feature.” selecting the “e” and “w” in “new” will select the entire word “new” (reaching the end of a word will select the beginning of the word as well). Selecting the “e,” “w,” and “f” in “new feature” will select both full words, and dragging into any other words will instantly select those whole words as well. Whenever you pass a word, phrase, sentence, or paragraph boundary, it begins selecting at that level.

Holding the Alt key (or Option for Mac) will allow normal selection, and Alt + right click (or Option + click for Mac) will select the word’s logical cluster. This feature will be enabled on all Logos 5 software, but if you want to check and be sure, just go to your program settings under the tools menu and check and see if the smart selection feature is set to “yes.”

Because this feature is so great, it takes a lot of data on the back end to make it work. Therefore, we will be implementing these updates late on October 26 to cause as little inconvenience as possible. Thank you for your patience!
