I spent almost 23 years in the US Army. For nearly all of those years I had the privilege of serving in special operations or airborne units. I could go through the list of accomplishments that no one is concerned with—more than 300 jumps, more than 15 combat deployments to five war zones, lots of opportunities to do difficult or dangerous training. But what I cherish most are the relationships that I developed in the Army.
In The Lord and His Prayer, May’s Free Book of the Month, N.T. Wright provides valuable insights into the Lord’s Prayer, and appeals to the believer to return to a dedicated life of personal prayer. In Logos, this book becomes even more valuable with visual filters, search, collections, and more. Today, I’m going to show you some of the ways I’ve used Logos to get the most out of my study of Wright’s book.

The use of language, whether it’s Greek or English, spoken or written, is a true art form—perhaps the only one we practice every day. Instead of choosing colors from a palette or notes from a scale, we choose from a list of vocabulary, grammar, and linguistic devices in order to create meaning. The possibilities are endless.
This variety gives our speech and our writing vibrancy, but it can also cause confusion. How often do we stop and ask, “What did you mean by that?” Even though we practice the art of language every day, our messages are not always received as they’re intended.
When reading the New Testament we need this clarity more than ever. When we come across a confusing passage, we can’t exactly pick up the phone and ask an apostle, “What did you mean by that?” However, we can analyze the linguistic devices they used, and this can help us understand the New Testament authors’ true intentions.
No 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.
Have you ever been to Arlington National Cemetery? Have you ever had a chance to see the pride of the men and women who guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier?

It is moving!
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.
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.

It 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.
