Excerpt from the Award-Winning Lexham Geographic Commentary

Each year, Christianity Today honors outstanding books most likely to shape evangelical life, thought, and culture.

The Lexham Geographic Commentary on the Gospels, edited by Barry Beitzel, recently received this prestigious award for the category of Biblical Studies. The commentary delivers fresh insight by paying attention to an often overlooked component of the Gospel stories—their geographical setting.

Most houses (be they of a commoner or a king) had a guest–room or lodging place (katalyma) where a traveler could pause to eat or sleep for a period of time.

This excerpt explores—and challenges—the traditional understanding of the location of Jesus’ birth. [Read more…]

See How All Major Doctrines Relate to Each Other

The new Theology Guide in Logos 8 will do something most people consider it impossible to do: it will change theologians’ minds.

Theologians have long known that Logos is a good tool for the study of Scripture, but to some of them that’s all it was. Now, theologians, Logos can guide your studies, too.

Search for “Image of God,” for example, in the new Theology Guide, and you’ll get quick access to all the major tools of the Lexham Survey of Theology—and there’s a lot of them.

Let me explain how they work.

How to Use the Important Passages Feature in Logos 8

Usually when we’re studying a passage we like to explore cross-references related to that passage. For example, imagine we’re camped out in Luke 4:1 which states Jesus was full of the Holy Spirit, led by the Holy Spirit, and tempted by the devil. During our research, we may want to read other passages about Spirit fullness or guidance or temptation. Typically, however, we have to look up the cross-reference to see what it’s about.

That’s about to change with a new feature in Logos 8 called Important Passages. This Guide section not only lists a cross-reference but also tells us why it’s a cross-reference in the first place! [Read more…]

That’s why when we made Logos Bible Software 8, we challenged ourselves to create new ways for you to take the next step in your Bible study, whether you’re a Bible scholar or are just beginning to study the Bible for yourself.

And that meant making Logos easier to use than ever.

Bring Your Sermons to Life with These Massive Collections

What was the secret of Spurgeon’s most powerful sermons? While the Holy Spirit is the source of true power behind any preacher’s sermon, there’s a craft to sermon writing—and Spurgeon mastered it. And more than anything else, Spurgeon mastered the art of the perfectly placed and eloquently delivered illustration.

With The Biblical Illustrator Collections for the Old Testament (28 vols.) and New Testament (30 vols.)—both currently on Community Pricing—you’ll glean verse-by-verse insights from respected preachers such as Augustine, J.C. Ryle, Charles Spurgeon, and D.L. Moody.

The collections together:

  • Cover the entire Bible
  • Provide commentary, illustrations, application, and outline suggestions
  • Include contributions from celebrated preachers and theologians from throughout church history

Plus, when you add these to your Logos library, you’ll be able to consult The Biblical Illustrator alongside your preferred Bible translation and other commentaries while writing your sermon using the Sermon Editor. Open Logos’ Sermon Starter Guide or the Passage Guide to find sermon outlines, supporting quotes, or illustration ideas from The Biblical Illustrator and other Logos resources. Or use Logos’ in-depth search to find correlating ideas or illustrations on the passage or topic you’re studying.

These resources are on Community Pricing, so you can place a bid for what you’d like to pay for the Old Testament and New Testament collections. With Community Pricing, your bids tell us what you want to become a new resource in Logos, and when your favorite resources get fully funded, you get a great deal on classic works. Learn more about how Community Pricing works here.

Place your Community Pricing bid on The Biblical Illustrator: Old Testament Collection (28 vols.) and The Biblical Illustrator: New Testament Collection (30 vols.), and save when these come out!
