And the Winner of the $20,000 Haddon Robinson Scholarship Is . . .

We have a winner! Out of more than 24,000 entries, Stephen L. Kolk of Madison, WI, won the Haddon Robinson Scholarship.

Stephen, a 12-year Logos user, was thrilled: “The Dr. Haddon Robinson DMin Scholarship excites me as I think about what I could do with it and how I could use it to build, expand, and apply my knowledge of Logos software. My wife and I talked about it, and she thinks this wonderful gift is something that suits my abilities and passions.”

Hailing from Grand Rapids, MI, Stephen is a 1976 Calvin College graduate. He has served the Christian Reformed Church in a variety of capacities—youth leader, deacon, treasurer, elder—and he’s currently teaching at High Point Church in Madison, WI.

Stephen and Trudi, his wife of 36 years, have raised two sons while living in Michigan, Connecticut, Minnesota, Washington, and Wisconsin.

From all of us at Logos and Knox Theological Seminary—Congratulations Stephen!

Biblical Sermons: How Twelve Preachers Apply the Principles of Biblical Preaching

Haddon Robinson presents 12 preachers’ expository messages, each illustrative of the principles of biblical preaching. For each message, Biblical Sermons provides Robinson’s accompanying comments, as well as an interview with each preacher.

“This volume is the flesh and blood which brings life to the skeleton in Biblical Preaching. Its clear and constructive content is both an intellectual and devotional experience.”—William McRae, Ontario Theological Seminary

Biblical Sermons provides greater substance and meaning to an appropriate approach to expository preaching.”—Gerald Mathisen, Moody Bible Institute

Each chapter contains discussion and reflection questions and a list of books for further reading. The book is well suited to pastors looking for refreshing insights into their preaching, as well as seminary students or lay speakers.

July 6, 1415: The Martyrdom of John Huss

“Lord Jesus, it is for thee that I patiently endure this cruel death. I pray thee to have mercy on my enemies.”—The last words attributed to John Huss

At the end of the fourteenth century, John Wycliffe’s influence was beginning to permeate the Christian world. Wycliffe’s convictions, such as his affirmation of the priesthood of every believer and his belief in the right of every believer to have access to Scripture in his or her own language, ran contrary to the era’s religious culture.

Wycliffe’s ideas were by no means universally popular. It is said that, upon reading Wycliffe’s works, an indignant scribe in Bohemia (now part of the Czech Republic) responded, “O good God, do not let this man come into our beloved Bohemia.” Wycliffe’s influence couldn’t be stopped, though, and his teachings circulated into Bohemia in the 1380s.

John Huss (born in Bohemia in 1369) discovered Wycliffe’s teachings while at the University of Prague. Huss went on to be ordained as a priest and, at the turn of the century, made rector of the University. Although many of Wycliffe’s works were  denounced by the church, Huss helped translate and distribute Wycliffe’s work. The Bethlehem Chapel, where Huss took over preaching duties, soon became a platform for Huss’ reform-minded teachings.

It wasn’t entirely Huss’ reformist thinking that put him outside the church’s good graces. Complex political and ecclesiastic issues, including an attempt to depose two popes (Benedict XIII and Gregory XII) and elect a third (Alexander V), were creating turmoil in the church. With King Wenceslaus of Bohemia, Huss backed this new pope. But when Huss took a stand against indulgences being sold to finance Alexander’s crusade against the other popes, he angered Wenceslaus and found himself at odds with the entire leadership of the church—with no king to protect him. Huss was excommunicated and forced into exile.

In 1414, the Council of Constance was organized to put an end to the church’s papal controversy. Huss was called before the council to give an account of his doctrine. Although he attended under the promise of safety, he was immediately arrested. During Huss’ incarceration, the council declared Wycliffe a heretic (May 4, 1415). Wycliffe’s books were burned and his body was exhumed and incinerated, his ashes thrown into the river.

Huss was brought before the counsel, and his beliefs—Christ (not the pope) being head of the church; predestination; separation of church and civil power; a belief that communion be available in both bread and cup to all (wine was often withheld from the laity)—were enough to have him condemned as a heretic.

On July 6, 1415, Huss was given an opportunity to recant. When he refused, he was taken to the cathedral, stripped, and led to the courtyard. Tied to the stake and given one last chance to renounce his beliefs, Huss responded, “Lord Jesus, it is for thee that I patiently endure this cruel death. I pray thee to have mercy on my enemies.” Peter of Mladonovice, a follower of Huss and witness to his execution, wrote that Huss sang Psalms while being engulfed by flames.

Huss’ execution started a rebellion. His followers (called Hussites) defeated many of the emperor’s attacks and continued to call for reforms. Hussite thought didn’t just outlive its founder—it went on to change the world. Wycliffe’s and Huss’ radical ideas were soon fanned into flame by Martin Luther.

Take the Tour Winner Visits the Logos Campus!

We launched Logos’ 20th-anniversary Take the Tour contest in February. Not only did Logos users come out of the woodwork to suggest witty captions for our virtual tour of the Logos campus, thousands entered to win a trip to Bellingham, WA, to see our facility first hand. When the smoke cleared, Irvine, California resident Jefferson Lee won an all-expenses-paid Logos tour.

“I was excited!” exclaimed Lee, the international philanthropy director at Wycliffe USA. “Then I thought . . . is this spam? I don’t normally win a lot of things, so it was really nice. I’d really like to visit their office since [Wycliffe] provides translations for Logos Bible Software.”

Wednesday, June 27, Lee and his family spent the day touring the facility and getting to know some of the individuals behind Logos Bible Software. The kids enjoyed some air hockey and foosball, and Executive Vice-President Dan Pritchett challenged Rachel Lee to a game of ping-pong, which she graciously let him win. (Truth be told, Dan plays a mean game of table tennis. If you have plans to tour the Logos campus, see if you can book a game with him.*) Meanwhile, Jefferson drank espresso and took in the view of Bellingham Bay from Bob’s office on the seventh floor of the Flatiron building.

Not only did the Lees enjoy a tour of the Logos campus, they took advantage of their Pacific Northwest visit to explore Seattle (coffee capital of America and home to Microsoft and Boeing) and Vancouver, BC, host of the 2010 Winter Olympics and neighbor to the world-famous Whistler Ski Resort.

We’d Love to See You Too!

If you ever find yourself passing through Bellingham, stop in for a visit. We do hundreds of impromptu tours every year for people who just drop in. We’d be happy to walk you through our offices. You might even get a game of ping-pong out of it.

We know you might not be able to make it in person. That’s why we created the virtual tour. You can take a 10-minute stroll through Logos and not miss a thing. If you’ve already seen it, watch it again: we recently released Take the Tour 2.0 with new footage and laughs.

Like what you see? Want your desk featured in a future iteration of the Take the Tour video?  If you are looking for fun, rewarding work, check out our Careers page. We might be looking for you!

*There’s a $100 Logos book credit for the first person who can beat Dan at ping-pong while visiting Logos.

Think you have what it takes to beat Dan? Let us know in the comments.

Is Your School a Logos Bible Software Partner?

You’ve seen announcements about our partnership with Knox Theological Seminary, and you know that Logos is the standard, indispensable tool for every one of Knox’s Preaching and Teaching DMin students. But what you may not know is that Logos Bible software is rapidly becoming an essential and fundamental tool for many Christian colleges and seminaries.

Logos Helps Students Succeed

Couple automatic, customizable citations for more than 27,000 available titles (and counting!) with the ability to do hours of research in seconds, and it’s no wonder that the students and faculty of educational institutions are making Logos a requisite in their regular curricula. Factor in the ability to use Logos on PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android, or the web and you’ve got one of the world’s most powerful and versatile tools for biblical research.

Students struggle to pay for higher education. The cost of credits and resources can often be prohibitive which leaves them to the hard, unnecessary choice of doing without the books they need to excel. When you factor in the time spent on research and homework, there’s often little time left for that important second job. With Logos, research is done in a fraction of the time, enabling students to do less searching and more reading. Our well-rounded base packages and bundles make books more affordable. Students are spending less money and saving more time, which results in a better educational experience.

Also, let’s be honest—many Bible colleges have amazing programs but struggle to keep up technologically. Students want a top-notch theological education without having to sacrifice the advantages that technology affords them.

Standardizing on Logos in their educational program keeps them on the cutting edge of Bible study while outfitting them with an amazing, portable theological library for life.

Here’s a sample of the prestigious schools that require Logos in their classes:

  • Dallas Theological Seminary
  • Harvard Divinity School
  • Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
  • Ashland Theological Seminary
  • Moody Bible Institute
  • Calvin Theological Seminary
  • Trinity Western University
  • Pacific Life Bible College
  • Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary
  • Florida School of Preaching
  • Liberty University
  • Concordia Seminary
  • Calvary Bible Theological Seminary
  • Texas Baptist Institute
  • Lancaster Bible College
  • The Master’s Seminary
  • And more

Include Logos in Your Curricula

The Preaching and Teaching DMin from Knox isn’t the only academic program requiring Logos. Institutions have made Logos a fundamental component for various classes, including:

  • Advanced Greek
  • Hermeneutics
  • Counseling
  • Bible Study Methods
  • Biblical Hebrew
  • Discourse Analysis
  • Computer Assisted Greek Study Tools
  • New Testament Biblical Theology
  • Old Testament Biblical Theology
  • Apologetics
  • And so many more!

The Holy Land: Help Logos Craft the Perfect Tours!

With Logos 4, you have tons of maps and pictures to help contextualize the text you’re reading. But imagine if you could actually gaze over the Sea of Galilee, walk the streets of Jerusalem, and stand on the Temple Mount. How would that enhance your understanding of—and perspective on—the Bible?

Now you have the opportunity to experience the Bible: to see firsthand the places and things you’re reading about. We’re introducing tours of Israel. To increase the appeal, we’re planning to offer a few different types:

  • General: This is the standard tour of Israel. Visit biblical sites with other tourists from around the world and learn from knowledgeable local guides.
  • Pastor/Church: How about a pastor-led tour of Israel? Your pastor can lead your church, teaching you as you go.
  • Author-Led: Enjoy a  tour of Israel led by your favorite author or theologian.
  • Scholarly: Be led through Israel by an expert in the area’s history and significant sites.
  • VIP/Custom: Tell us exactly what you want to see and we’ll customize the trip just for you. Want to take a more intimate group? Or really immerse yourself in one place?
