2 New Free Hebrew Vocabulary Lists

The post from two weeks ago about the 2 New Free Greek Vocabulary Lists led to some new Hebrew vocabulary lists surfacing. I guess the OT guys didn’t want to be outdone by the NT guys. :) We now have the lists from Zondervan’s Basics of Biblical Hebrew by Gary D. Pratico and Miles V. Van Pelt and Baker’s Introducing Biblical Hebrew by Allen P. Ross.

This brings our total number of vocabulary lists up to 26: 14 Greek, 9 Hebrew, 2 Aramaic, and 1 Akkadian. Visit our Vocabulary Lists page to download these new lists.

Once you’ve downloaded them, you can access your new lists in Logos by going to File > Open, selecting “Vocabulary List” from the Types column, and then selecting the list of your choice from the Documents column. For additional help using them, see the previous post.

Have a vocabulary list from a Hebrew or Greek grammar that you’d like to see us make available? Send an email to suggest@logos.com, and let us know.

The Great Bible Giveaway

giveawaythumb.jpgWe’re about to give away 72 ultra-premium versions of the most amazingly bound Bibles ever printed. From the finest you can imagine top-end offerings in leather and calfskin—to the limited production run—“only a handful in existence” type heirloom quality of ultra-premium goatskin in a custom-carved Rosewood box imported from England!

Wow, was that breathless or what? …but seriously, if you are used to the feel of the paperback Bible you got from church the first day you visited youth-group as a teenager, you won’t believe how different these bindings can be.

We know “…the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” and we love it no matter what it is printed on and no matter what it is bound with. In fact, some of the most “heirloom quality” Bibles in the world are the most plainly bound, simple, worn and weathered Bibles. What makes many Bibles “heirloom quality” is the deep personal connection to God’s Word that they represent for those privileged to steward them.

So why are we giving away such high-end Bibles? Well, it all started when I received an ESV Study Bible in Premium Calfskin. I literally had no idea that leather could feel so supple, so smooth and so cottony-soft. I found myself wondering if it was fair to say that my new Bible could actually be creamy, velvety, and like butter all at the same time. When it came time to launch Bible.Logos.com I wanted to do something spectacular. I wanted to highlight the brand-new ultra-premium access to the Bible that Bible.Logos.com provides, with some ultra-premium print Bibles that people would be more familiar with.

Over the next 6 months Logos is giving away 72 premium print Bibles on Bible.Logos.com—worth over $11,500.00!

Every month from July thru December, we will give away 12 premium Bibles featuring the most popular translations from Bible.Logos.com, including ESV, KJV, NIV, NASB, NLT, and NKJV. These Bibles are the top-of-the-line versions and feature the highest quality leather and binding—some are valued at over $400.

This month we will be giving away these 12 Bibles:

  1. ESV Study Bible, Black Calfskin (Retail $239.99) from Crossway
  2. KJV Concord Wide Margin Reference, Black Goatskin (Retail $229.99) from Cambridge Bibles
  3. NASB In Touch Ministries Wide Margin Edition, Burgundy Calfskin (Retail $149.99) from Lockman Foundation
  4. NASB Large Print Ultrathin Reference, Black Calfskin (Retail $149.99) from Lockman Foundation
  5. NASB Side Column Reference Wide Margin Limited Edition, Black Calfskin (Retail $149.99) from Lockman Foundation
  6. NIV New Women’s Devotional, Espresso Renaissance Fine Leather (Retail $59.99) from Zondervan
  7. NLT Tyndale Select, Black Calfskin (Retail $135.00) from Tyndale
  8. NIV Study Bible, Black Goatskin (Retail $229.99) from Cambridge Bibles
  9. NIV Study Bible, Black Renaissance Fine Leather (Retail $124.99) from Zondervan
  10. NKJV UltraSlim Bible Signature Series, Black Calfskin (Retail $129.99) from Thomas Nelson
  11. NLT Tyndale Select, Black Calfskin (Retail $135.00) from Tyndale
  12. TNIV Reference Bible, Black Renaissance Fine Leather (Retail $99.99) from Zondervan

ESV Study Bible Coming to Logos

ESV Study BibleThe ESV Study Bible from Crossway is one of the best study Bibles on the market. This carefully crafted volume packs in 2 million words (including the ESV Bible text), 20,000 notes, 50+ articles, 200+ charts, 200+ full-color maps, 80,000 cross-references, 40 illustrations, and more. The ESVSB brings together a wealth of evangelical scholarship in a concise and refreshing way and is sure to help you understand God’s Word better.

This award-winning study Bible is about to get even better. It’s now available on our Pre-Pub page in two different versions—a notes-only version for those who already own the ESV Bible (which is included in all of our base packages) and a complete version for those who do not yet have the ESV.

The Logos edition of the ESV Study Bible puts the Bible text in one resource and all of the other content in a second resource. This enables you to view the Bible and study Bible content side by side—and even scroll synchronously when both resources share the same link set. The ESV Study Bible Notes resource will function just like any other commentary and will show up in the Passage Guide along with your favorite study Bibles and commentaries. So no matter what passage you’re studying, the ESV Study Bible with all of its rich content is always just a click away.

Watch the video below to find out why you should add the ESVSB to your digital library.

People behind the Product: Meet the Anchor Yale Bible Team

The Anchor Yale Bible was our biggest Pre-Pub ever in terms of its size, the number of hours it took to get it from print to digital, and the team assembled to tackle it.

Pictured below are the folks in our Electronic Text Development department who did the lion’s share of the work.

Several others are not pictured here because they forgot to wear their t-shirts! Many more were involved in other ways like working with the publisher and doing things like marketing, sales, testing, shipping, and support.

Since this was a special Pre-Pub, we did something out of the ordinary. One of our artists designed a t-shirt that those who worked closely on the project received. Here’s a close-up of someone wearing his new t-shirt proudly.

I know some of you are thinking how much you’d like to add this to your wardrobe. Well, if you wear a medium, you just might be able to. We have three medium t-shirts left. If you bought the Anchor Yale Bible and want one of these cool shirts, leave a comment below. We’ll randomly pick out three winners and send out the shirts in the next day or two.

Looking at all of the data, Dr. Heiser shows how to reconcile the conflicting sources.
