Strengthen Your Ministry at Pastorum Live

Join us for the Pastorum Live conference in Chicago April 11–12, 2013.

At Pastorum, Bible scholars and pastors will unpack the mission of the church as displayed in Scripture, starting at the very beginning. You and your peers will overview God’s plan from Genesis to Revelation, and find ways for your local church to carry out the mission of our God and King.

Not only will you revive your theological knowledge—you’ll sharpen it with Drs. Mark Futato, Mike Goheen, John Walton, and others. During each session’s panel discussion, these speakers will share ideas for applying academic subjects in your church. You’ll see how the cultures of the Bible parallel or contrast with today’s environment.

Register by January 31 and pay only $79! The first 300 people to register will receive all Pastorum 2013 video content for free.

New DMin Track: Theological Exegesis

Today’s post is built around content from Michael Allen, coordinator of the theological exegesis track and D. James Kennedy Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at Knox Theological Seminary.

Knox Theological Seminary is proud to introduce the world’s first Doctor of Ministry track in theological exegesis. In this program, you’ll learn to interpret and explain Scripture in the context of theology, taking what has been mostly an academic conversation and connecting it to the lives and communities of Christians worldwide.

The track emphasizes canonical, creedal, and contextual biblical interpretation:

  • You’ll read each passage in light of the scriptural canon’s broader context, and you’ll see how each piece fits into the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and his kingdom.
  • You’ll use the church’s creeds and confessions (past and present) as prompts to refine your interpretive work, and you’ll learn to see the past as a constant presence for the community of faith.
  • You’ll understand the Word’s answers to modern questions and struggles.

Classes start this month with Michael Allen’s “Hebrews: Exegesis and Theology.” As you study Hebrews, you’ll learn to read the Old Testament overall by studying how the epistle’s anonymous author exegetes Israel’s Scriptures. You’ll familiarize yourself with both classical and contemporary works, growing in your capacity to recognize wisdom in disparate sources. And you’ll see how this ancient text addresses compelling issues today.

Knox’s theological exegesis track is your chance to master nuanced interpretation and life-changing preaching without giving up your ministry responsibilities. Take the first step toward your DMin—explore the new track at

Software Bíblico Logos: an Amazingly Successful Experiment / un experimento asombrosamente exitoso

It’s common to hear Hispanics refer to American society as “advanced” and express frustration at the difficulty of finding cutting-edge technologies south of the border. One notable exception, though, is in Bible-study technology. Logos has reimagined its software to suit the interests of Hispanics, offering a set of Bible-study tools as advanced as their English-language counterparts.

The intention was generous, and the move somewhat risky. By and large, Hispanics don’t enjoy the purchasing power of the American consumer. Their Bible-study habits generally stay at the devotional level, with little need for advanced technology.

But the experiment yielded an awesome response. From the get-go, Logos’ Spanish department has averaged over 30% yearly growth. Users have steadily proved their demand for better tools and content, some by paying a month’s wages. With 30 books, our very first package started timidly, but today the Biblioteca Premier offers 422 Spanish resources.

For Hispanics, this year closes with an stupendous gift opportunity. The recent released Biblioteca Premier features a bibliography covering every angle of Bible study: Bibles, commentaries, lexicons, theology, apologetics, evangelism, history, and more. What’s more, the new Logos 5 features will satisfy the homiletical yearnings of the many Hispanic pastors who prefer to study and preach topically rather than expositorily. To top it off, all Spanish libraries are discounted by 15% through the Christmas season.

How better to bless your Hispanic pastor friend or leader than by telling them about Logos? Or, better yet, by getting them this amazing blessing and seeing their awesome response?

*  *  *

Seguido los hispanos describen la sociedad americana como “muy avanzada,” con aire de desánimo, al percatarse de que las tecnologías más avanzadas no están fácilmente disponibles para ellos fuera de los Estados Unidos. Hoy día, no obstante, existe una notable excepción a esta norma. Se trata de la tecnología de estudio bíblico. Software Bíblico Logos ha tomado herramientas originalmente diseñadas para el consumidor americano y las ha re-adaptado para el mercado hispano.

La intención ha sido generosa pero no sin riesgo, comenzando porque los hispanos, en términos generales, no gozan del poder adquisitivo del consumidor americano. Además, sus hábitos de estudio bíblico generalmente permanecen a un nivel devocional que no demanda de mucha tecnología.

La gran sorpresa ha sido que el experimento ha resultado en una increíble bendición con una reacción inédita. Desde su comienzo, el departamento hispano de Logos ha promediado más de 30% de crecimiento anual. Los usuarios han comprobado su deseo de herramientas avanzadas y buen contenido de estudio bíblico. Algunos han estado dispuestos a pagar tanto como el equivalente de un mes de sueldo. El primer paquete comenzó titubeante, ofreciendo 30 libros. Hoy día la Biblioteca Premier ofrece 422 recursos de estudio.

Para los hispanos, este año cierra estupendo con una gran oportunidad de regalos. La Biblioteca Premier, recientemente debutada, cubre una bibliografía de todo ángulo de estudio: Biblias, comentarios, léxicos, teología, apologética, evangelismo, historia, y más. Además, las funciones de las nuevas bibliotecas de Logos 5 saciarán la sed homilética de muchos pastores hispanos con estudio y predicación por tópico más que expositiva, máxime cuando todas las bibliotecas se encuentran descontadas un 15% durante las fechas navideñas.

¿Qué mejor manera de bendecir a un amigo pastor hispano o líder que hablándole de Logos? Aún mejor, ¿obteniendo para su amigo una biblioteca Logos 5 y siendo testigo de la gran bendición y la inédita respuesta?

Through the end of our Christmas sale, you can save up to 75% off individual title prices—or, with a Master Bundle, up to 85%! On top of that, you’ll get a discount for any books you already own. This means if you already own resources in a bundle, you’ll get a deal tailored to your existing library. Don’t wait—prices double after January 2, 2013, when all bundles revert to their regular prices.

3. Your bundles are compatible with Logos 5
