mEd_SummerSession_LogosBlog

For most of us, September to May is the busiest time of the year. Even if you wanted to further invest in your studies, there’s little time. But with the summer season, things begin to slow down and suddenly there’s time for all those books you’ve been meaning to read and all those activities you’ve been putting off.

That’s why we’re introducing Mobile Ed Summer Session.

197 Reformed Commentaries for 75% Off!

Reformed Commentary BundleHow did you start building your theological library? If you’re like a lot of pastors, scholars, or seminary students, you put it together one piece at a time—book by book. You began a study on a book of the Bible, bought the most respected commentaries (if you could afford them), rolled up your sleeves, and got to work. Then when the next paper or sermon series rolled around, you did the same thing.

That method often leaves huge gaps in your library. Maybe you have five commentaries on Romans, and Galatians, but how’s your Minor-Prophets shelf looking? Remember that study you did on eschatology? You bought 10 commentaries on Revelation and Daniel. But what about the book of Numbers, or Deuteronomy?

Incorporate David Platt’s Sermons into Your Bible Study

David Platt Sermon ArchiveGod is passionate about missions. As an influential textbook on missiology boldly declares, “The clear affirmation of Scripture is that our God is a missionary God.” Not only has God sent his Son Jesus to be the savior of the world’s sins, he has also given believers the privilege to share this message with our friends and enemies, neighbors and strangers, those at home and those abroad. The Bible is clear that God’s blessing goes with us as we take the message of salvation to others: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” (Rom. 10:15)

David Platt has spent years teaching and preaching on God’s heart for the nations to hear the good news of the gospel. His runaway best seller, Radical, inspired readers to abandon the American dream and pour themselves out for God. In 2014, sensing the call to equip the next generation of missionaries, Platt became the president of one of the largest missions organizations in the world, the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Platt’s desire to teach the gospel, “making disciples, sharing, showing, and teaching God’s Word in everyday life,” has led to a prolific preaching ministry at the Church at Brook Hills in Alabama.

Now, for the first time, hundreds of Platt’s sermons are available for pre-order on Logos.com!

Andreas Köstenberger on Studying Primary Sources

LogosPro_blog
This week’s Logos Pro post is by Andreas Köstenberger. Dr. Köstenberger is Senior Research Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He’s also a long-time user of Logos Bible Software.

In most areas of scholarship—and biblical research is no exception—engaging the primary sources is exceedingly important. There is no substitute for interacting directly with the text of the Bible and contemporaneous literature in the original languages. I have found that Logos Bible Software is an excellent tool for doing careful original-language work.

The Smallest Big Addition to Your Library

 

BlogTDNTAbridged

The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament (10 vols.) is a monumental reference work, considered by many scholars to be the best New Testament dictionary ever compiled.

At 9,073 pages, covering over 2,300 theologically significant New Testament words, TDNT is perfect for deep, serious Bible study.

Sometimes, however, the sheer amount of information can be hard to wade through.

That’s what makes The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, Abridged in One Volume so helpful. Condensing the massive content of its elder brother to a more manageable 1,356 pages, the abridged version includes only the most important and useful information that pastors, students, and laypeople will return to again and again.

Kay Arthur on Balancing Ministry and Your Spiritual Walk

Kay Arthur

If you’re a pastor, scholar, or church leader, you’ve probably experienced it. You spend hours in the Word preparing sermons, Bible studies, and Sunday-school lessons. Yet even as your understanding of the Bible increases, you find yourself slipping into a state of spiritual fatigue. Your congregation or students thank you for the insight you’ve provided, for the difference your study has made in their lives. But you know God has used you in spite of the distance from him you feel at the moment. You may have crafted the perfect sermon, but your spiritual well has run dry.
In this excerpt from Bible Study Magazine’s exclusive interview with Kay Arthur, the beloved Bible-study expert shares how she maintains vitality in her spiritual life through personal quiet time and by refusing to separate her lesson preparation from her own spiritual walk.
