The Email That Changed This Man’s Bible Study

logos-5-baptist-base-packagesOne of the best parts of working in social media is being a direct line of contact for Logos users to share their stories. Sometimes those stories describe how Logos has transformed their study of the Word, sometimes they share how Logos has helped them spread the Gospel, and sometimes they share stories of generosity.

Pastor Tony Walker had been curious about Logos for a while, so he posted a Facebook status asking friends if it was worth the investment. Along with receiving a unanimous “yes,” he also got a phone call. It was from a family member asking Walker about his interest in Logos, along with which authors he enjoyed reading the most. Walker told them that he thought it would be helpful in his role as a youth pastor, as well as in preparation for an upcoming revival where he would be preaching.

An hour after that phone call, Walker received an email informing him that a Baptist base package was purchased for him by his family member, along with The Select Works of Jonathan Edwards (one of his favorite authors).

Walker posted on Facebook:

There have been several times in my life where there was something I either needed or wanted when God used someone else to do what I was unable to do. Often I have used those times as illustrations of God’s provision for someone who is unable, yet also unworthy. Things like this are an example of true Christian charity, giving to someone who you know will more than likely never be able to return the favor.

Walker shared this story with us via Facebook, so we followed up with him to get the scoop on his Logos experience.

What has impressed you most about Logos?

“The value of it. The amount of resources I receive for the price is drastically lower than what I’d pay for those books at a bookstore. Also the iPad and iPhone apps are great—being able to carry my entire library around with me is extremely helpful.”

What do you use Logos for the most?

“I’m the youth pastor at my church, and I teach an adult Sunday school class. Logos has been a great assistant when it comes to preparing lessons for both of those roles.”

Which Logos tools have been helpful?

“I’ve dabbled with the Timeline feature and I’m excited to dive into it further. My wife and I teach a kids’ class once a month, so we’ve been creating word searches in Logos. They’re easy to make, and it’s nice to have the puzzles directly complement the lesson.”

What are your plans for the revival?

“Each night I plan to teach on an aspect of God’s love. The first night will focus on 1 John 4:8—so a broad scope of God’s love—and then become more specific each following night. Logos has already been very useful with preparation for the revival.”

Pre-order the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis

new-international-dictionary-of-new-testament-theology-and-exegesisThe New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology and Exegesis (NIDNTTE) is now available for pre-order! This collection is the second edition of one of the most valuable resources for pastors, teachers, and scholars for over 40 years.

The collection’s first edition was edited by Colin Brown and featured contributions from highly acclaimed scholars such as James D.G. Dunn and D.A. Carson. While this edition was treasured for over 35 years, the new edition, edited by Moisés Silva, will continue its legacy by assisting scholars around the world in their biblical study.

Enhance your Greek studies & more

The NIDNTTE provides you with Greek reference tools and its striking exegetical discussion of New Testament vocabulary.

Even if you already own the first edition, this new version will equip you with distinct and exciting new features. You’ll immediately notice new discussions and revisions, including the change of its alphabetical arrangement and overall uniformity.

Rather than searching for an English topic in order to find the desired Greek word, you now have the advantage of starting your searches with the Greek word itself. This transformation saves users a great deal of time whether looking up one word alone or for those who have a list of words that they would like discussed individually.

Don’t wait—pre-order this collection today to lock in the best price!

A Quote for Every Day of the Week

300-quotations-for-preachers-with-slides

I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.
—Marlene Dietrich

A powerful and insightful quote can be the perfect punctuation to an idea. And pastors and academics alike will find our quotations volumes immensely valuable.

We’ve collected 2,500 quotations and prayers into eight volumes with quotations ranging from Augustine and the early church to Charles Spurgeon and the modern church:

All of these resources include professionally designed slides for every quote so that you can easily insert them into your presentation or share them with friends and family.

It is a pleasure to be able to quote lines to fit any occasion . . .
—Abraham Lincoln

We have good news for you and for Mr. Lincoln.

The sheer number of quotations and prayers you’ll get with these volumes makes them worthwhile, but, when you pair these resources with the power of Logos Bible Software, they become even more valuable.

Each quote is tagged with Scripture references and themes so that you can quickly find the perfect quote that fits any occasion. We’ve also included a full bibliographic citation for each quote and a link to the original source if it’s included in your Logos library.

Here’s what a few prominent pastors are saying about these quotations volumes:

This is a robust set of volumes that has obviously been put together by a preacher who knows what preachers need in a quotation compendium. Preachers of every stripe will find this a beneficial addition to their Logos collection.
—J.D. Greear, pastor, The Summit Church

Preachers need to do better than merely combing resources for a pithy quote. They should invest themselves in the original sources as much as possible, and this makes it easy to dig into the original material.
—Joe Thorn, pastor, Redeemer Fellowship

For the last month, the Lexham Press social-media accounts have been posting a quote of the day every weekday using the hashtag #QuoteOfTheDay. Follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook, and you’ll get an exclusive coupon code for all eight quotations volumes.
