Are Goals Really That Important for Christian Leadership?

Christian leadership

First and foremost, Christian leaders are followers. They trust the Holy Spirit’s lead, urging those in their care to join them as they go where God has called them. Seems simple enough. But how important is it to know exactly where you’re going as you follow the Spirit’s lead? Is good Christian leadership dependent on setting clearly defined goals?

Unearth the Biblical World with the Mobile Ed Course Filmed in Israel

archaeology in action

This summer Mobile Ed wanted to take you beyond the studio, so we sent our film crew to Israel to collaborate with some of the world’s top archaeologists in order to build a course that teaches you how to do biblical archaeology. Dr. Craig Evans led our team overseas to capture the process, tools, and theory behind the science.

Logos Mobile Ed has worked with leading professors to deliver theological education that’s accessible anywhere. But talking about biblical events and places is not the same as being there. That’s why we’re excited to announce the next step in theological training: a Mobile Ed course filmed on site in Israel.

7 Themes to Explore in the New Biblical Theology Collection

Explore biblical theologyMany of us have a strong selection of systematic theologies in our libraries, but a paltry sampling of resources on biblical theology. That means we’re missing an opportunity to draw on scholarship that can help us understand some of the most important themes in scripture.

Robert Yarborough says that biblical theology “seeks to discover what the biblical writers, under divine guidance, believed, described, and taught in the context of their own times.” It’s a discipline that considers the progressive nature of revelation, and interprets it accordingly. There’s no small disagreement over the exact nature of biblical theology, and are perhaps as many definitions as there are practitioners. But for evangelical scholars, at least this much is certain: biblical theology offers the unique opportunity to gain a sense of the grand narrative of Scripture while diving deep into theological themes played out in specific books or across the entire canon.

4 Steps to a Bigger, Stronger Logos Library

build a better library

I still remember walking slack-jawed into my systematic theology professor’s study. I was instantly surrounded by the faded spines of thousands of books, dodging wobbly towers of commentaries, encyclopedias, and monographs stacked floor to ceiling. There was an entire wall devoted to decades’ worth of theological journals. Still another wall of shelves housed over 100 volumes of commentaries on the book of Romans alone. As a young Bible college student, I wasn’t just impressed, I’d discovered what would become one of my life’s passions: the accumulation of books—and lots of them!

Don’t Underestimate the Importance of Dictionaries

LogosPro_blog
Like any specialized field, theology and biblical studies have developed their own unique vocabularies. That terminology has been refined over thousands of years—and often familiar terms are used in unique ways. For instance, although the terms “dichotomy” and “trichotomy” can be used in a variety of contexts, in theology they have a very distinct meaning—namely, they identify two major views regarding the makeup of human beings. Trichotomists say human beings are comprised of body, soul, and spirit, while dichotomists argue for a two-fold distinction: soul/spirit and body.
