How to Enhance Personal Books in Logos, and Why You Should Do It

Guest writer Adam B. Shaeffer holds an MA in Spiritual Formation from Talbot School of Theology and a PhD in Theology from Durham University. He is already a big fan of Logos 8.

In my previous post, I discussed C.S. Lewis’ introduction to a translation of St. Athanasius’ The Incarnation of the Word of God. If you’ve read his introduction, and if you’re like me, you want to read the version he introduced. Unfortunately for us, that version isn’t yet available in Logos and isn’t in the public domain.

Guest writer Adam B. Shaeffer holds an MA in Spiritual Formation from Talbot School of Theology and a PhD in Theology from Durham University. He is already a big fan of Logos 8.

There’s a feature in Logos 8 that may have sneaked past you—I know I missed it at first—and that is author guides.

Author guides offer a brief overview of an author’s life, social network, geography, and notable contributions, enhanced with links to the Factbook and Timeline. [Read more…]

This Is Probably the Best Time Management Book Ever: Interview with Matt Perman

Matt Perman deserves credit for helping a lot of people do more stuff. But that’s not the point of his book. Matt actually wants to equip you to do stuff that matters. I interviewed Matt recently on his exceptional time management book, What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done

Speaking personally, this book has been a game-changer for me as I balance family, PhD, work, exercise, artistic endeavors, ministry, sleep, really everything that goes into every single day to make it worthwhile. And, I know I’m not alone in that level of busyness. Enjoy the interview, and I encourage you to get your (digital) hands on this book now early in the New Year (or get a copy for your loved ones; they will thank you).

Read Some Old Books in 2019

Guest writer Adam B. Shaeffer holds an MA in Spiritual Formation from Talbot School of Theology and a PhD in Theology from Durham University. He is already a big fan of Logos 8.

In my previous posts, I’ve highlighted some of the new features in Logos 8, but in this post, let me turn to an oldie but goodie: Reading Plans.

As I’ve already made clear in another post, I love C.S. Lewis. His imagination and clarity have been gifts to me through the years. It’s fair to say that he has shaped my thinking in some significant ways, and one of those is in his insistence on the value—no, the necessity—of reading old books. [Read more…]
