berit-olam-studies-in-hebrew-narrative-and-poetryThrough February 4, pre-order the 13-volume Berit Olam: Studies in Hebrew Narrative & Poetry commentary series and get $100 off!

Berit Olam (“The Everlasting Covenant”) gives you the latest developments in literary analysis of the ancient Hebrew texts. This collection is an enormous breakthrough in biblical scholarship and commentary—it’ll help you find answers that are both theologically meaningful and wide in scholarly scope. It represents some of the best linguistic and historical research available in English.

Immerse yourself in Hebrew storytelling & poetry

The authors reflect a variety of traditions, yet they share the same desire—to help you better appreciate the craft, poetry, and storytelling of the ancient Hebrew world.

The series looks not only at the historical context in which the Scriptures were written, but also at how Christians throughout the ages have interpreted them.

“Berit Olam, an outstanding contribution to biblical literature, is a multivolume commentary filling a needed niche in the field . . . recognizing the fine arts of storytelling and poetry that make up the biblical corpus and therefore contributing to a fuller understanding and appreciation of the art forms that constitute the biblical text.” —Robin Gallaher Branch

What stands out about this collection is that it doesn’t place any one hermeneutical method above the others. Instead, it combines a look at Christian thought throughout the ages and attention to historical detail to give you a well-rounded commentary on 27 books of the Bible.

The Works of Thomas Adams

Regularly $59.95—current bid is $24

The Library, one of the greatest accomplishments in ancient Greek literature, provides a plain, thorough summary of Greek mythology and legends.

Some of these works appear nowhere else.

Select Works of August Hermann Francke

August Hermann Francke was a Lutheran Pietist theologian, pedagogue, pastor, and social reformer. His work spanned everything from missionary coordination to preaching, from building low-income schools to teaching college-level theology, Hebrew, and exegesis.

Studying the Old Testament: 3 Terms to Keep in Mind

5 Types of Dictionaries You Need

Bible dictionaries are enormously helpful (especially in Logos!), and having access to multiple types is useful for comparing definitions, studying context, and making sure you have the most accurate information. If you start adding up how much it would cost to pick up several print editions, though, you might decide that multiple types of dictionaries aren’t worth it. Luckily, with Logos—especially with Pre-Pub and Community Pricing—you can get Bible dictionaries for a fraction of the price, in a far more valuable format.

Here are five types of dictionaries on Community Pricing, some of them for up to 91% off:

Logos Just Got Voted a Glassdoor Top Employer—Here’s Why

Glassdoor best places to work.jpgAs employees, we have a behind-the-scenes look at how Logos functions. We can give the most honest, accurate feedback about what it’s like to work here. This year, that feedback landed Logos among Glassdoor’s top 10 best medium-sized companies to work for!

Glassdoor lets employees leave voluntary, anonymous reviews of their employers. Here’s what some of us had to say:

“Most challenging and fulfilling place I’ve worked . . . The feedback is always constructive with a view to making things better or more efficient.”

“A company that is genuinely concerned about its employees and pushes them to grow.”

“I never want to work anywhere else . . . The best thing about Logos is the people. The caliber of talent is amazing . . . Our CEO is always asking how we can make Logos a better place to work and employee suggestions are taken to heart.”

“Challenging job with more opportunity than I could have possibly expected . . . Logos Bible Software is a great place to learn and grow as a software developer.”

You can get a totally candid look behind the scenes at Glassdoor’s page of Logos reviews.

Honor God. Love others.

As companies grow, rules and regulations often increase, and interaction with management often decreases. At Logos, I’ve experienced just the opposite. In fact, a couple years ago, our employee manual was trimmed to just four words: “Honor God. Love others.” Yes, we have an employee manual, but as you can see, it’s based more on how we treat each other, and less about day-to-day rules.

We’re free to make suggestions, free to try big things, and even free to fail: Recently, a fellow coworker made a mistake that cost us a lot of money. Our CEO, Bob Pritchett, responded by saying, “We made a mistake. We own it, we learn from it, and we welcome the chance to show our employees and our customers that we mean what we say about our values and ‘The Logos Way.'”

The Logos Way is what leads to us employees feeling trusted and appreciated. It’s why we give such positive feedback on sites like Glassdoor. Maybe it’s just our way of saying “thank you.” Because when employees are happy, it affects everything—our morale, our products, and our customers.

Don’t just take my word for it—check out Glassdoor’s full list of the best medium-sized companies to work for.
