Understand the Legacy of the Reformation

42509Edited by Richard Muller, author of the magisterial Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics, the Texts and Studies in Reformation and Post-Reformation Thought series engages original texts in Reformed history with care and precision, bringing to light neglected texts that deliver crucial insights into Reformed thought.

The high level of scholarship and use of rare original sources make this collection a valuable addition to the library of any student of the Reformation.

Examine key figures of the Reformation and Post-Reformation such as John Calvin, John Owen, and Philip Melancthon. Each volume tackles a separate topic in Reformation studies. Here are some highlights:

Explore the heart of Calvin’s theology

In Calvin’s Theology of the Psalms, Herman Selderhuis’ shows how Calvin’s treatment of the Psalms reveals the very heart of the great Reformer’s theology. Selderhuis’ deft analysis even draws out details about Calvin’s faith and life through his comments on the Psalter.

Learn about a neglected Reformer

In Heinrich Bullinger and the Doctrine of Predestination, Cornelis Venema argues that Bullinger belongs squarely in the great Reformed tradition—despite being overshadowed by Calvin, Luther, and Zwingli.

Discover Luther’s concept of the two kingdoms

Examine the relationship between the sacred, the secular, and the role of the church and the Christian with Martin Luther’s Understanding of God’s Two Kingdoms. This volume explores how Luther’s two-kingdoms theory sustained his understanding of God’s lordship over all creation.

Delve into the Reformers’ thought on predestination and freedom

The Reformed understanding of God’s sovereignty and human freedom is probably the most controversial aspect of Reformed thought. Reformed Thought on Freedom demonstrates the nuanced arguments the early-modern Reformed tradition developed.

See Every Major View of a Bible Passage, All in One Place

Lexham Bible Guide: 1 CorinthiansWhat do you do when you come across a difficult Bible passage? Chances are, you open a trusted commentary and see what it has to say. Sometimes, the first commentary you check has the answer you’re looking for. But more often than not, you want to reference several sources to see the different conclusions scholars have come to.

Your Logos software simplifies this process, allowing you to easily switch between commentaries keyed to the verse you’re examining.

But it can still take a while.

Lexham Bible Guides make it easy

What if you had a summary of all the relevant literature for any given passage? Lexham Bible Guides have become some of my personal favorite resources because they provide just that. I like to think of each Lexham Bible Guide as a multiple-views commentary. Look up a given passage, and you’ll find summaries of all the major viewpoints of recent scholarship.

Lexham Bible Guides work great as stand-alone study tools, but they also excel as starting points for further research. Each of the summarized views links to its primary resource. So, once you find an explanation that makes sense, you can follow through to get all the details.

For example, let’s say I’m reading through 1 Corinthians 15, and I come to verse 29—the mysterious “baptism of the dead” passage. What am I supposed to do with this? I could go through my commentaries one by one, but as the Lexham Bible Guide: 1 Corinthians points out, “The number of proposed interpretations of this issue is confounding.” In other words, that could take a while.

Thankfully, the Lexham Bible Guide puts all the major views together in an easily accessible format. After providing an overview of the issue and the general approaches that have been taken, the guide summarizes the perspectives from each scholar. Here are a few examples:

Baptism of the dead

For this particular passage, the Lexham Bible Guide: 1 Corinthians includes the perspectives of 14 different scholars, including Gordon Fee, Richard Hays, and Leon Morris. I can follow through to their original resources to get all the insight they have to offer.

Now available individually

Up until now, most of the Lexham Bible Guides have only been available through the 13-volume Paul’s Letters Collection. This is still the best value if you want them all, but we recently made each volume available for individual purchase!

Just want to finish reading about the “baptism of the dead”? Then pick up the Lexham Bible Guide: 1 Corinthians! Have some other particularly difficult passage you’re working on? Then pick up the Lexham Bible Guide you need from the available volumes below:

Douglas Moo’s Organizing Principle for New Testament Theology

New Testament theology is a vast subject. It can be daunting to even know where to begin. The New Testament includes writings in several different genres by several different authors. Each book was written for a specific situation and has its own unique emphases and even vocabulary. How do you begin to organize these different writings into an overarching structure for doing New Testament theology?

New Testament expert, professor, and author Douglas Moo deals with this dilemma in his Mobile Ed course NT305 New Testament Theology. In this sample clip, Dr. Moo talks about what he uses as a basic organizing principle for doing New Testament theology:

Dr. Moo goes on to show how this contrast between two realms shows up in the teachings of Jesus, Paul, and John. He looks first at the old realm, surveying the effects of sin, the nature of humanity, and the purpose of the Old Testament law. He then shows how the person of Jesus Christ is the center of the new realm, how his work ushered it in, and how God’s grace enables us to enter it. Dr. Moo then examines what the New Testament has to say about how we are to live as people in the new realm.

NT305 New Testament Theology will give you a greater understanding of the overall message of the New Testament. You’ll better appreciate how the various books come together to reveal God’s plan in a fuller way. Order it before April 16 and get 40% off the full price!

Deciphering the Book of Acts with DIY Bible Study

diy-bible-studyLearn how to study the Bible and immerse yourself in its wonder with DIY Bible Study.

This highly visual curriculum leverages the power of Logos Bible Software to help you take your Bible study to the next level. With application-focused content, beautifully designed images, and practical video tutorials, DIY Bible Study gives you everything you need to study the Bible to the fullest extent.

This incredible resource is now available as an individual add-on—and right now, it’s on sale for 20% off!

Better Bible study

We built DIY Bible Study to be fully integrated into Logos Bible Software. We’re leveraging all of Logos’ amazing tools to help you study the Bible. As you work through this resource, your learning is framed by sections that teach you Bible study principles that are demonstrated within Logos itself. You’ll learn how to study the Bible and use the most powerful Bible software to accomplish your goals.

There’s also a prebuilt, year-long reading plan included with DIY Bible Study. In just 10 minutes a day, you can go through the entire resource, digging deeper into the Bible with each lesson. It’s also easily used as a handbook during your regular study. We wanted it to be as flexible and as accessible as possible so anyone could benefit from it, no matter where you find yourself on your walk with Jesus.

Step into the Scriptures

Following the grand narrative of the Bible can be difficult if you haven’t spent years studying the Scriptures. Following the narrative of a single book of the Bible can be just as difficult. With DIY Bible Study, both of these endeavors become much easier.

The book of Acts is a labyrinthine story about establishment of the early church and the spread of the gospel. It bridges the gap between the life of Christ (the Gospels) and the teachings of the church (the New Testament letters). Acts is a witness to the Holy Spirit’s work in the lives of people, the direct continuation of Jesus’ ministry.

Geography plays an important role in Acts, as Luke traces the progress of the Gospel away from Jerusalem out to the “end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). DIY Bible Study gives you the tools to help you understand the structure of the book, geographically and temporally.

This map depicts many of the locations in the Graeco-Roman Empire—the setting of the book of Acts:

DIY_Acts Map

And there are so many events to keep track of in the book of Acts, it takes two slides to recount all of them:

DIY_Acts Timeline 1

DIY_Acts Timeline 2

Once you’ve wrapped your head around the physical themes of the book, you can start to tackle the theological themes presented by Luke. Acts is an inspirational account of the early church, stirring us to move forward with the work of God, toward the “end of the earth.”

The Bible is your story

With DIY Bible Study, you’ll get an overview of the entire Bible, one study at a time. You’ll also discover methods to improve your study, and you’ll be introduced to helpful study tools.

DIY Bible Study is now available as an individual add-on and is in most Logos 6 base packages.
