How to Create Links to Specific Logos Resources

how to create links to books in logos bible software
I have redesigned quite a number of church websites, and there is one thing I never carry over from the previous design: written directions to the church.

I never give directions or ask for them. I can’t remember the last time I said to someone, “First, you head east on . . .” Instead I text someone a link. And I admit I get impatient when someone tries to give me directions instead of just providing me an address I can type into my smartphone.

Similarly, I try to avoid giving people complicated software directions: “Click the menu item, then click the dialog box, then click ‘Okay,’ then head east. . . .” Everywhere I can in my digital life I instead send direct links.

Study the End Times, Heaven, and Hell with Trusted Resources

the end times heaven and hell

Christianity insists that the events of history are not the random effects of chaos; God’s invisible hand is guiding the ages toward a definite goal—a new heaven and new earth. Eschatology—the study of the end times—is largely concerned with future events, but it’s profoundly practical for the here and now. Eschatology reminds us that the conflicts of this age will one day pass away, and that in Christ, God is indeed making all things new (Rev 21:5).

Pastors and other Christians often turn to the books of Daniel and Revelation to understand what the Bible teaches about the end times. There are scores of interpretations to these important books, and none of them are without controversy. It’s easy to become so focused on decoding the meaning of the books’ startling imagery that we forget the essential hopefulness of the prophets’ messages. Thankfully, Christians have been exploring these biblical books for thousands of years. Solid biblical resources from a variety of viewpoints can provide sure theological footing in a treacherous interpretive landscape.

We’ve pulled together over 100 resources on eschatology to help you navigate the complexities of eschatological interpretation. Today we’re highlighting four of the best commentaries on Daniel and Revelation featured during this special event.

labeling your bible

Most of the skills involved in good Bible reading are things people do intuitively anyway. So why bother reading a Bible study magazine or purchasing Bible software—plus all the resources (commentaries, books, hermeneutics manuals) that make that software worth having?

Because, ironically, we are blind to things we do intuitively. It’s by acknowledging, describing, and finally naming our reading practices that we grow in our ability to read the Bible (or any book).
