The first reviews of The Unseen Realm have been posted and the consensus is overwhelmingly positive. People are raving about the astounding insights found in the book and the accessibility of the writing. Laymen and academics alike have shared their thoughts about The Unseen Realm and we’d like to share a couple of links where it’s being discussed.
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.
Whenever a resource you own is updated, you’ll get that new content—for free—so your Logos library is always becoming more valuable and staying up to date with the latest improvements.
Here’s a list of Logos resources that were updated throughout August.
Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.
I recently received this question from a Logos user: I am trying to find Paul’s co-laborers who are women. Is there a way to search just for the women in Paul’s letters? Excellent question! Happily the answer is “yes” with the Concordance tool found in Logos Now.
If you’re not familiar with Logos Now please check it out because, in my humble opinion, the Concordance feature by itself makes Logos Now a worthy investment. Among many other things, the Concordance tool can build master lists of people in Scripture. Then we can filter those lists according to numerous characteristics including gender!

Download this month’s free book, open it up in Logos, and follow along with today’s study by clicking the red links.

The style and arrangement of words in your Bible is like wallpaper for most people: you only notice it if it changes, and maybe not even then. But in fact, the typography in our Bibles matters a great deal—and it matters because it means. For instance, when editors place line breaks between two sentences, they are communicating that there’s a shift in the flow of thought. We use paragraphs in modern typography to group related sentences together.
The biblical authors, as far as we know, didn’t use paragraph breaks as we do. And ancient biblical manuscripts have relatively few breaks of any kind. But like periods, quotation marks, and other modern conventions, they have to be there in today’s writing. Their absence communicates something as much as their presence. So editors at Bible publishing houses are forced to choose where to put breaks, and standard editions of the Greek New Testament even notate where paragraphs occur in various major Bible translations.
