Last Chance to Enter Scholarship Giveaways: $1,000 for Seminary or Bible College Tuition

Seminary ScholarshipAdmit it. You would love to start the new year with an extra $1,000 to cover your tuition costs. And how would you like to own a Logos Bible Software Scholar’s Library, a digital theological library which contains almost 500 titles, would cost nearly $8,000.00 in print equivalent, and would be with you well after you graduate and are in the ministry?

To put it another way, wouldn’t you love a full-time personal research assistant to help you through Seminary or Bible College and for this research assistant to foot $1,000 of your tuition bill? That is what we are giving away—soon!

In a few days, on January 10, 2011, Logos will be awarding at least two applicants exactly that through our SeminaryScholarship.com and BibleCollegeScholarship.com giveaways—which means you still have only few more days to enter!

With most scholarships, you typically don’t want to tell your friends about it because the more applicants there are, the less chance you have of winning. With our scholarship giveaways, the exact opposite is true. The more of your friends that apply, the greater chance you have of being awarded a scholarship! Like I said, at least two people will win, but possibly up to four.

If you refer someone to our scholarship and in their application they indicate that you referred them, if they win the scholarship, then we’ll give you a scholarship too! You could both get a $1,000.00 tuition scholarship and a copy of Scholar’s Library. But first you’ll want to apply!

Apply for our Seminary Scholarship.
Apply for our Bible College Scholarship.

Then to make it easy to share, here’s what you’ll want to do:

Post a link to SeminaryScholarship.com or BibleCollegeScholarship.com on Facebook, Twitter, or your blog. You could even send your friends an email or give them a call. The most important thing is to remind them to put your name in the "other" section of the "How’d you hear about the scholarship?" That way we can make sure you get a scholarship too, if they win.

So what are you waiting for? I’m sure it would feel great if you won the scholarship. But wouldn’t it feel better if you helped someone else win it too?

mp|seminars Tips

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

Sometimes you’ll find yourself wanting to make a list of Bible cross references from a resource like New Nave’s Topical Bible or The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge. With Logos that process is very simple:

  • Chose File | Passage List
  • Name the Passage List
  • In the resource, select (highlight) text containing Bible cross references
  • On the Passage List click Add | . . . selected text

All of the verses you highlighted in the resource are quickly added to your Passage List at the same time!

By creating numerous Passage Lists you can build your own collection of verses for various topics such as heaven, justification, holiness, etc!

Of course you can return to the File menu to reopen and edit these lists.

Logos 4: Wildcard Searching

mp|seminars Tips

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

A Logos user recently e-mailed me this question: How can I find all of the “obedience” words in the Bible like, obey, obedience, obeyed, obedient, etc?

Here’s all you have to do:

  • Click the Search icon to open the Search panel
  • Select Bible as the search type
  • Select the desired range and Bible(s) to search from the drop down lists
  • Type this in the Find box: obe*
  • Press the Enter key to initiate the search

The asterisk (*) is a wildcard representing any number of characters. So you’re searching for all the words beginning with obe followed by anything. This search finds the obedience family along with Obed as well. To remove Obed from the search type this:

obe* ANDNOT obed

As you can see, this wildcard search comes in handy when you’re looking for similar word forms at the same time!

Logos 4: Linking

mp|seminars Tips

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

Think back with me to the "old days" when we primarily studied with print books. Quite often we had a Bible and commentary open at the same time. When we turned the pages in the Bible, of course we did the same for the commentary so it would keep up with our study of a passage. Those days are over because Logos Bible Software 4 turns the pages for us. Here’s what I mean:

  • Open a Bible and commentary onto the screen
  • Click the panel menu in the upper left hand corner of each resource
  • Select Link set A on each menu
  • Go to a different location in the Bible
  • Watch the commentary follow right along with you

This feature is called Linking. Link as many Bibles and commentaries as you like in the same Link set. Where one goes, they all go!

Logos 4: Quickly Locate Pictures

mp|seminars Tips

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

If you’re like me, when you’re reading the Bible, sometimes you want to see pictures or images about the things in a passage. For example, imaging reading Acts 18.4 where Luke says Paul, "reasoned in the synagogue." We may wonder, what does a first century synagogue look like? Or if we’re in Ephesians 6.14, we may like to see an image of the breastplate Paul referenced. With Logos Bible Software 4 that image is just a click a way. For example:

  • Open an English Bible to Acts 18.4
  • Right click on the word synagogue
  • Select from the right menu Thing synagogue
  • Select from the left menu Biblical Things

The Biblical Things tool opens showing you pictures and images from your library, all related to synagogue. Keep these steps in mind when you comeacross most any object in the Bible: gazelle, cornerstone, lily, you name it.

Logos 4: Auto Bookmarks

mp|seminars Tips

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

After reading a while in your Bibles and books you’ll begin to notice little gray hash marks in the vertical scroll bar of the resources. These marks are called Auto Bookmarks.

Imagine as you read print books that you “dog ear” each page you read. That’s what these gray marks are. They indicate every place you’ve been in a particular Bible or book. Rest your cursor on an auto bookmark and you’ll see a preview of the text on the page. Click the mark to jump to that location.

If, however, you’d rather not see the auto bookmarks you can easily hide them:

  • Choose Tools | Program Settings
  • Set Show Auto and Favorite Bookmarks to No

If you have a change of heart, just return to Program Settings and reset the option to Yes.

Logos 4: Create Your Own Study Bible

mp|seminars Tips

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

With Logos Bible Software 4 you can in essence create your own study Bible. Think about this: a study Bible is simply the biblical text along with notes attached to verses. You can easily replicate this resource with you own notes. As you study the Bible along with commentaries, dictionaries, lexicons, and the like, you pull from each book the best it has to offer about specific verses. Why not save all of this research in a note file for future use: thereby creating your own personalized study Bible? Here’s how to do it:

  • Choose File | Notes to create an Untitled Note File
  • Name the file something like My Notes
  • Open any Bible to any verse
  • Right click on any word within that verse
  • Select from the right menu Reference ‘your verse’
  • Select Add a note to ‘your note file’ at the bottom of the menu

Logos creates a note in the file with the name of your verse. Underneath the note name is a content box. You can type or copy and paste text into this box. So as you investigate those commentaries, dictionaries, etc. copy text from them into your note file.

Notice in the Bible a yellow box next to your verse. Rest your cursor on the box to see a preview of your note. By the way, this yellow box is placed in all of your Bibles! Click the yellow box to jump to the note file.

Replicate these steps for each verse you study. After a while, as you read through the Bible, you’ll have yellow boxes next to many verses. Your own study Bible is well underway. Also, remember the note file does not need to be open to see the yellow boxes in the Bible!

Logos 4: Instant Information

mp|seminars Tips

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

As you know, we live in an instant world: instant coffee, instant oatmeal, instant potatoes! Sometimes, even as we study the Bible, we need instant information. We need a quick definition, a pronunciation of a Greek word, a few cross references and the like. Well, Logos is here to help:

  • Open an English Bible such as the ESV to a specific passage like Acts 17.16
  • Choose the Tools menu
  • Select Information
  • By default the Information panelopens on the right hand side of the screen

Now rest your cursor on a word like Athens. Notice the data in the Information panel. Now move to the word provoked. More instant information! This panel is available to you wherever you are in the Bible offering previews oftremendous amounts of research. When you need to dig deeper, just click one of the links in the Information panel.

Logos 4: Bible Search Results to a Passage List

mp|seminars Tips

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

Years ago when I used print books, I always had a legal pad on my desk so I could record a list of verses as I studied. I would do all sorts of things with these verses: memorize them, create a handout to distribute to the congregation or class, file them away for future reference and so on. With Logos 4, it’s very easy to create, save, and reopen such a list with a file called the Passage List. Here’s just one way to create a Passage List:

  • Click the Search icon
  • Select Bible as the Search type
  • Set your search criteria by using the drop down lists
  • Type a word or phrase in the find box such as mercy or "but God"
  • Click the search arrow or press the Enter key
  • Click the Search panel menu (top-left corner of panel) when the Bible search results appear
  • Select Save as Passage List

You’ll notice that a Passage List file is created. You can now name the file, select the Bible(s) to be used in the list and so on. Anytime you want to reopen and use the list choose the File menu and click the desired list to open it.

You can create as many Passage Lists as you want. I encourage you to make numerous lists as you study topics such as forgiveness, angels, and so on. Then, when you need to see verses for a particular subject, just return to the File menu.
