The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) is a beloved translation used by hundreds of thousands of Christians throughout the English-speaking world. Recently, Broadman & Holman have brought together some of the top biblical scholars to produce a revised edition of the HCSB: the Christian Standard Bible (CSB). Pastors and scholars such as David Platt, Tony Evans, Alistair Begg, and Robert Plummer have endorsed it, and David Dockery has touted the CSB as “a landmark achievement—beautifully combining accuracy and accessibility in a way that makes it ideal for Bible study, reading, teaching, and preaching.”

It’s near the end of the eighteenth century, and a German theology student is in distress. He had recently graduated from the University of Halle and moved to Berlin to become a chaplain at a local hospital. His readings at the university in rationalist philosophy and theology had led him to doubt his faith in the Christian doctrine taught since his childhood. Writing to his father, the young man confesses to him, “I cannot believe that he who called himself the Son of Man was the true, eternal God; I cannot believe that his death was a vicarious atonement.”
January’s featured product brings together 11 volumes by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, founder of Ariel Ministries and one of the foremost scholars on the Jewish character of the Scriptures. In these works, Dr. Fruchtenbaum covers a wide range of theological, spiritual, and practical topics, offering ground-breaking perspectives on the Bible, Jewish traditions, and Israel.

Throughout this Christmas season, we’ve been encouraging Christians to commit to look closer at God’s Word. We believe Scripture has the power to open our eyes to the wonder and power of the Christmas story.
That commitment to looking closer doesn’t have to end with the conclusion of the Christmas season. The start of the new year is the perfect opportunity to commit (or recommit!) to making Bible study a daily habit. As you meditate on the Word of God, new insights and reflections will be illuminated as you immerse your daily life with Scripture.

Christmas may be over, but there’s still time to save on resources to help you uncover the wonder of the Word. We’ve discounted over 130 Bible study resources: from commentaries and reference works, to theology, Mobile Ed courses, and even print books (perfect for any belated Christmas gifts)!
There are just seven days left to take advantage of these savings. Here are a few highlights you don’t want to miss.
With Christmas just a few days away, all the preparations should be complete. The tree has been decorated, the stockings hung, the presents wrapped, and all the dinners planned. Amidst all these arrangements, take a moment to pause and reflect on the Christmas story.
This Christmas, we’ve been encouraging Christians around the world to look closer at God’s Word. Because when we study it, reflect on it, and meditate on it, we can get fresh insight and discover new meaning within this familiar story.

This Christmas, we’re encouraging Christians to look closer at God’s Word—to be intentional about the time they spend in Scripture. Because when you spend a little extra time and effort looking closer at God’s Word, familiar stories come alive with details you’ve never noticed before, and God’s Word takes on new power.
One of the best ways to get a fresh look at God’s Word is to learn from those who’ve spent a lifetime studying it. Mobile Ed courses provide expert guidance for your journey through Scripture. They take you step-by-step through important issues on a score of biblical books, topics, people, themes, doctrines, and more. Each course is taught by a trusted scholar and includes fascinating video lectures, reading suggestions, reflection questions, and more.
Here are five Mobile Ed courses we recommend to lend you a little guidance for your journey through Scripture this season. (And each one is 30% for a limited time!)

A Mobile Ed Video and FaithlifeTV+ Church Subscription can help you with the plan. From apologetics and evangelism to discipleship and leadership; documentaries and dramas to music and even kid shows, there are over 8,000 videos to help prompt an engaging and edifying discussion during your next group study.
The fact is, every Logos user is different. Some of us are out to build our libraries bigger and bigger. Others are passionate about owning Logos features. Some of us just want to use Logos features, and ownership is less important. And for many of us, the bottom line is, well, the bottom line: price.
As we’ve spoken with customers the last few months, we’ve found that there are three upgrade options many are turning to. So which is right for you: a base package, Logos Now, or the Logos 7 Full Feature Set?
Read on. This post can help you decide.
Among the great “Christmas texts” in Scripture, there is, arguably, one passage that surpasses all others in both majesty and power. In John 1, the apostle manages to squeeze one of the clearest declarations of the incarnation in just 18 verses. Beginning with the pre-existence of the eternal Word, John describes in detail one of the central mysteries of the Christian faith: how the second person of the Trinity became man—in order to reveal the glory of God. It’s a familiar passage. But like so many familiar passages of Scripture, a closer look can reveal precious truths hidden beneath the surface. And in the case of John 1, it reveals a profound revelation concerning just what it means to be a child of God. [Read more…]
