Get Your Journals as We Complete Them

Journal Bundle blog post imageNo one likes to wait. Since we began work on Logos 6, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the completion of our journal bundles—definitive collections of some of the most celebrated scholarly journals out there.

We’ve been hard at work tagging over 1,200 volumes. Soon, you’ll be able to search for a Scripture in the Passage Guide or Sermon Starter Guide and see every relevant article in every journal in your library.

The journal bundles are due to ship in September, but we just can’t wait any longer. And we don’t want you to either.

We’re giving you the chance to gain instant access to journals in these bundles as we complete them.

Introducing the Reformed Commentary Bundle

Reformed Commentary Bundle.jpg

Building a library that suits your needs as a Reformed pastor, layman, scholar, or academic can be cumbersome and expensive. Even if you can afford the best commentaries available, there are so many great resources you may not know where to start.

Enter the Reformed Commentary Bundle.

We’ve compiled over 150 commentaries featuring top scholarship from the Reformed tradition and made them available in one massive bundle. This bundle combines expositional and exegetical works, with time-tested classics, and contemporary, world-class scholarship. Best of all, this may very well be the most affordable bundle of commentaries we’ve ever offered.

Study the Bible like a Scholar with the Not Your Average Bible Study Series

not-your-average-bible-study-seriesIt can be easy to reduce Jonah’s story to the version we might have learned in Sunday school when we were young. Being swallowed by a “big fish” is a story that engages our imaginations and teaches a valuable lesson about obedience. But by focusing on Jonah and the fish, we miss the important themes of mercy and grace that are present throughout the book.

Digging into the Scripture is the best way to expand your understanding of Jonah’s story. And once you’ve grasped all the nuances of the text, the next step is to apply these lessons and themes to your own life in practical ways.

But it can be difficult to take this next step.

Mark Futato Explains How to Teach and Preach the Psalms

Mark Futato-Edit-BW

 

John Calvin called the Psalms “an anatomy of all the parts of the soul,” meaning there is not a single emotion in all of life that is not articulated in the book of Psalms.

When Dr. Mark Futato realized the Psalms’ broad relevance to all of life, it sparked a deep-rooted passion for researching and teaching this rich book of the Bible in a way that helps others do the same.

He brings that passion to his new two-course Mobile Ed bundle, Understanding the Psalms.

Reveal the Poetic Structure of the Psalms in Seconds

LogosPro_blog

C.S. Lewis once said, “The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express the same delight in God which made David dance.”

Poetry has the unique power to evoke the vast and varied expanse of human emotion. And the Psalms have it all—from fiery, righteous indignation to wild, unbridled joy and profound bewilderment.

How do they do it? What is it about these ancient songs that still captures our hearts, and, like Lewis said, compels us to delight in God?

Can You Spot a Heresy?

Mobile_Ed_LogoThe history of the Christian church is riddled with teachers whose work looked and sounded like orthodox Christianity—but wasn’t.

Sometimes their teaching was so close to Christianity it was hard to tell the difference. The same is true today.

Can you spot the difference between Christian orthodoxy and heresy?

This Feature Makes Searching Your Logos Library a Breeze

One of the greatest benefits of Logos is the ability to find anything in your library.

When you open the Search panel and set the search type to Basic (A), you can select All Resources (B) or Everything (C).

Everything Search

 

I’m often asked, “What’s the difference between these two search types?”

Simply put, All Resources searches all of your books while Everything searches all of your books plus the Factbook, Atlas, Community Tags, and more!

Imagine you’re studying Jesus’ prayer in Matthew 26:36. When you read that he was in the Garden of Gethsemane you say to yourself, “I know I need info about Gethsemane, but what do I need—and where do I start?”

In times like these, try an Everything Search:

  • Open a Bible to Matthew 26:36 (D)
  • Right click on the word Gethsemane (E)
  • Select the English word Gethsemane on the right side of Context menu (F)
  • Select Search: everything from the left side of the context menu (G)

Everything Search 2

When the Search opens, it is set to Basic (H) and Everything (J). As you peruse the search results, notice:

  • Preferred Bible lists occurrences of the word in your designated Bible (J)
  • Factbook links you to reports containing your word (K)
  • Topic shows links to articles about your word (L)
  • Media displays images related to your word (M)
  • Atlas Results provides links to relevant maps (N)
  • Library Results presents every occurrence of your word in the Library (the same as searching All Resources) (O)

Everything Search 3

As you can see, the Everything Search provides a buffet of choices to further your study.
