Thousands of readers have already recovered the supernatural worldview of the Bible by reading The Unseen Realm by Dr. Michael Heiser. New connections across Scripture have been revealed as our understanding of the supernatural realm grows. Scholars and reviewers are raving about the insights found in The Unseen Realm—one reviewer even called it “the most thought provoking, thrilling, insightful book I have read all year.”
From age four to age 18 I read the KJV pretty much exclusively. All my Scripture memory in kids ministries was taken from the KJV, and I even begged my second-grade teacher at my Christian school to let the class speak in King James English for a day. She actually said we would do it, but she never followed through . . . (My belly hath been made bitter even unto this day.)
First and foremost, Christian leaders are followers. They trust the Holy Spirit’s lead, urging those in their care to join them as they go where God has called them. Seems simple enough. But how important is it to know exactly where you’re going as you follow the Spirit’s lead? Is good Christian leadership dependent on setting clearly defined goals?
The Bible is a rich text containing a complex mix of literary genres, and the story it tells spans multiple centuries. Understanding how to properly read and interpret it is challenging! In the Biblical Interpretation Bundle (7 courses), some of the brightest minds in biblical interpretation will teach you their methods. You’ll learn how to study Scripture in its original historical and literary contexts and how to grasp the overarching messages of the Old and New Testaments. Here are seven skills you’ll learn with this bundle.
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.
To do a passage study, we can use the Passage Guide. Is there something similar for a book study? What tools/feature should I use for effective book study?
I was happy to respond that Logos has tucked away inside the Factbook a feature called Bible Book Guides. This tool assembles background and survey types of information for each book of the Bible. This simple-to-use tool provides a great start for book study. Here’s all you have to do:
The Great Books of the Western World gives you instant access to the major ideas, stories, and discoveries that shaped Western culture. The 60 volumes contain 517 works written by 130 authors: Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, Calvin, Pascal, Kant, Kierkegaard, Melville, Shakespeare, Dickens, Marx, Freud, and so many others. Pre-order now to get $50 off the collection’s normal Pre-Pub price.
Logos is powerful—so powerful that understanding how to use its many capabilities takes some time. That’s why we have the Logos Pros, our team of expert Logos users. The Pros are dedicated to helping you implement Logos features into your Bible study. And this Friday they’ll show how to use the very latest Logos features in a live, free, online training event.

This month, get the book Luther in English totally free. And, you won’t want to miss our Plus One, Grace and Reason: A Study in the Theology of Luther for only $1.99!
As Brian Gerrish notes in his introduction to Grace and Reason, “‘Luther on reason’ is a vast subject—perhaps, surprisingly so—and even when the ground to be covered has been carefully mapped out, it would not be difficult to lose one’s path.”
Today, we’ll be examining snippets from this book and expanding our research using Logos. To start, I open the resource in my Logos software.
