Someday, when I have the confidence . . .

Someday, when I have the time . . .

Someday, when I am an expert . . .

Someday . . .

We all want to be the best versions of ourselves. We want to impact others and change lives, but we don’t always have the tools, skills, and knowledge needed to do the job.

Knowing God by J.I. Packer (with Audio)

A lifelong pursuit of knowing God should embody the Christian’s existence. According to eminent theologian J.I. Packer, however, Christians have become enchanted with modern skepticism and have joined the “gigantic conspiracy of misdirection” by failing to put first things first. Knowing God aims to redirect our attention to the simple, deep truth that to know God is to love his Word. Pre-order it now!

the-religious-affectionsThe Religious Affections (with Audio)

The Religious Affections—quite possibly the most important book written by America’s greatest theologian—explores the nature of true religion, true revival, and true conversion. Carefully distinguishing true Christianity from false faith, Jonathan Edwards uses his experiences as a pastor and leader of the Great Awakening as the basis for this book. Considered a masterpiece of religion and philosophy, this book continues to influence church leaders today. This product includes both the audio and Logos version of The Religious Affections. Pre-order it for 25% off!

The Cost of Discipleship (with Audio)

This book is quite simply one of the most profound and important books of the twentieth century. Dietrich Bonhoeffer lived his witness, and was both a thoughtful and engaging writer. Viewed against the background of Nazi Germany, Bonhoeffer’s book is striking, and it shares with many great Christian classics a quality of timelessness, so that it has spoken, and continues to speak powerfully, to the varied concerns of the contemporary world. Pre-order it now for 20% off!

Why a Bigger Library Is Better

Logos 5 Spring SaleLook at your bookshelf. How many books are there? 10? 100? 1,000? Now imagine viewing the entire Portfolio base package library on bookshelves—all 2,585 books lined up, row after row.

You may stop and wonder why anyone would need so many books. Even the most avid scholar would struggle to read all those books cover to cover. Why would you ever want or need more books? Because books power Logos 5’s features.

For example, imagine you’re studying 1 Corinthians and you find that it was a letter written by Paul to the Corinthians in about 55 AD. You go to the Timeline feature and see that Paul was on his third missionary journey and that during this period Nero was reigning in Rome. You click the Timeline event and you’re brought to a passage in The Complete Book of When & Where in the Bible and throughout History.

You read:

Nero Becomes Caesar

Pop Culture, Church History, and St. Patrick


While St. Patrick’s Day is rooted in religion, today’s pop culture has surrounded the holiday with drinking, luck, and Irish patriotism. This attempted marriage of religion and culture shows up most clearly in the contradictory definitions of St. Patrick’s Day’s most popular symbol: the shamrock.

On one extreme, the four-leaf clover has been commercialized to simply represent good luck. On the other extreme, however, many scholars argue that St. Patrick himself deemed the four-leaf clover a religious symbol, with the three leaves representing the Holy Trinity (one for the Father, one for the Son, and one for the Holy Spirit) and the final leaf representing God’s grace. Between these two extremes lies a murky middle ground, where some argue that each leaf stands for a separate idea: one leaf for hope, one for faith, one for love, and the fourth for luck.

With this strange union of pop culture and religious history, the impact of St. Patrick on church history is often neglected—even on the day that was established because of the saint and his work.

So Logos is offering up to 40% off resources to help you delve deeper into church history and the work of St. Patrick. These resources will examine questions such as: Is St. Patrick responsible for single-handedly converting Ireland to Christianity? Was he the only true apostle of an embattled, crumbling empire? In short, these resources will help you learn why St. Patrick’s Day exists at all.

The Logos St. Patrick’s Day Sale will run from March 15 through March 17 only.
