Exploring C.S. Lewis’ Wisdom in Mere Christianity


In Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis records a series of radio broadcasts. These broadcasts, now transcribed into a single volume, contain some of the most powerful apologetic elements of the Christian faith. Get this work, and 29 others, when you pre-order the C.S. Lewis Collection.

The four divisions

Mere Christianity is broken into four sections:

  • Right and Wrong as a Clue to the Meaning of the Universe
  • What Christians Believe
  • Christian Behaviour
  • Beyond Personality: Or First Steps in the Doctrine of the Trinity

What Christians believe

In the segment “What Christians Believe,” Lewis introduces one of the best-known apologetic arguments—that Jesus cannot simply be a good moral teacher:

One part of the claim tends to slip past us unnoticed because we have heard it so often that we no longer see what it amounts to. I mean the claim to forgive sins: any sins. Now unless the speaker is God, this is really so preposterous as to be comic.

A moral man would not make such a claim unless it was true, and no simple human can truly forgive the sins of the world. Now, there remain two options:

This man we are talking about either was (and is) just what He said or else a lunatic, or something worse. Now it seems to me obvious that He was neither a lunatic nor a fiend: and consequently, however strange or terrifying or unlikely it may seem, I have to accept the view that He was and is God. God has landed on this enemy-occupied world in human form.

Few things exhibit Lewis’ sharp intellect better than his logical paradigms. His clear, rational thinking has led to the conversion and assurance of many, yet he maintained a deep humility throughout his life.

Read Lewis like never before

In Logos, you can search Lewis’ writings to compare not only the progression of his thoughts through a single book, but through time and the surrounding context. With the 30-volume C.S. Lewis Collection, you’ll get digital, searchable volumes of Lewis’ best works that allow you to study his insights like never before.

For a limited time, get the C.S. Lewis Collection for 30% off. Pre-order now to lock in this special price!

5 Cost-Effective Ways to Build Your Logos Library

l6-overview-gold-featuredYour Logos library becomes more powerful (and valuable) when you add resources. Besides providing you with new content and reading material, additional resources are one of the easiest ways to get more out of what you already own—they create connections that you wouldn’t have been able to find otherwise.

If you don’t yet have a Logos 6 base package, that’s the best place to start: base packages give you the best value when you’re building your library.

But if you already own a base package, here are five of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to build your Logos library:

1. Upgrade to a higher base package

During the Logos 6 introductory sale, you can take advantage of promotional discounts paired with Dynamic Pricing when you upgrade your library—you’ll be able to add resources found in Logos 6 without giving up any books you already own. And if you’re already using Logos 6, you’ll only pay for the books and tools that are new to you—you’ll never pay for the same datasets, media, or other resources twice.

But Logos 6 introductory offers end February 2: now’s the best time to save on an upgrade. You’ll get a custom discount based on your Dynamic Price, you’ll get the 15% promotional discount, and you could qualify for gifts with your purchase. You can also use an interest-free payment plan to spread the cost over up to 24 months.

Upgrade your base package today >

2. Add another base package

One of the best ways to add tons of new books at great prices is to get a second or third base package. Once you own all of Logos 6’s tools, datasets, and media, you can get additional base packages and only pay for the books that aren’t already in your library.

Check out base packages based on different faith traditions or special interests—you can choose the perfect collection of books to round out your library for your faith or expertise. You can also pick your library based on the specific resources included. If you see a base package with collections or series you’ve been eyeing, you could get each new volume for just a few dollars.

Browse all base-package tracks >

3. Get book bundles on the topics you care about most

If you often focus on a specific area of study, topical bundles are a great way to get high-quality resources at a fraction of their regular prices. These bundles are tailored to excel in Logos 6: you’ll get key resources that enhance the tools and capabilities built into your software.

When you add bundles that fit the areas you’re most interested in, your study becomes more powerful. Having more books on specific topics will create more connections between them, empowering you to discover new insights.

Choose from bundles on Greek and Hebrew studies, church history, pastoral care and counseling, and much more. Or, get them all with the Master Bundle!

Explore topical bundles >

4. Monitor the monthly sale

If you’re looking for individual resources, start with the monthly sale: you’ll find deals at every price point on a variety of topics. And don’t forget to check your wish list—chances are good you’ll see something on sale you’ve been wanting! You can get big savings on commentaries, reference works, biblical-studies resources, and more.

See what’s in the monthly sale >

5. Claim your freebies

What’s better than adding free books to your library? You can often find free books attached to different sales, so watch for these opportunities throughout the year.

However, some titles are free year round—for example, get R.C. Sproul’s Crucial Questions Series and add 20 volumes on various theological topics, including the Holy Spirit, baptism, and more.

Plus, every month, check out the Free Book of the Month—over the course of a year, you’ll add 12 additional titles to your library at no cost.

Why I Bought Another Base Package


logos-6-goldI got Logos 6 Gold the day it came out. For me it was a no-brainer. The combination of new tools like Visual Copy, Interactive Media, and a solid set of reference works—many of which I’d already been eyeing—made it an easy decision.

At the time, I was deep into a study of Old Testament altars, and Cultural Concepts helped me make connections that I would have otherwise missed. My love for Logos 6 hasn’t waned an ounce since then. Every time I open the software I learn something new.

But last week I noticed something. Many users, especially Logos 6 owners, were buying second and third base packages. I had never considered doing this; one research library seemed to serve me just fine. I wondered, “What do these people know that I don’t?

So I did a little investigating, and it turns out that I could add some very valuable reference works to my library at a huge savings if I picked up a second base package.

baptist-bronzeI started with the Baptist track because it’s the most familiar to me. (I grew up Baptist, and my father is still a Baptist pastor in the southeastern US.) And sure enough, Logos 6 Baptist Bronze included 63 books that would be new to me.

The tradition-specific base-package tracks share many of the same reference works that powered my library, but they also included some works that I lacked, including:

Thanks to Dynamic Pricing, I could add these 63 titles to my library for just $175.66—that’s $2.76 per title! This seemed like another no-brainer to me.

reformed-bronzeThen I jumped over to the Reformed track, and found much of the same. Dynamic Pricing offers me Logos 6 Reformed Bronze (and its 26 books new to me) for less than $100. The price per title was a little higher—at $3.17—but the quality of works included was also high:

So for less than $3.25 per title, I could add nearly 100 more exceptional reference works to my Logos library. I was missing out!

If, like me, your appetite for learning seems to outrun your book budget and you’re always on the hunt for a bargain, I’d encourage you to add a second (or third) base package to your library.

Base packages are the most cost-effective way to grow your theological library, especially for those of us who have been Logos users for a long time and can—by virtue of our existing libraries—make good use of Dynamic Pricing. Base-package families enable us to augment our library with teaching from the traditions we’d like to explore further.

With introductory offers like 15% off and up to $900.00 worth of gifts available, this is the best time to buy. These offers end soon, so take advantage of them before they’re gone!

Vos’ Reformed Dogmatics: “Like a Lost Shakespeare Play Recently Discovered”

reformed-dogmaticsOnly a profoundly influential work could warrant such high praise. Some view Geerhardus Vos’ Reformed Dogmatics as the foundation for modern Reformed biblical theology. For the first time ever, Reformed Dogmatics is available in English—and the first three volumes are out now!

Vos’ strong grounding in biblical scholarship and biblical theology makes his Reformed Dogmatics unique. A fresh biblical perspective is brought to Vos’ systematic theology, giving this work a broad appeal to academics, students, pastors, and those with a great interest in biblical theology.

An example of this wide interest can be found in this photo:

Vos at ETS

At the Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society in San Diego last November, three prominent modern theologians came together and celebrated the printing of volume 1 of Reformed Dogmatics (from left to right, Michael Horton, Scott Hahn, and Michael Bird).

What people are saying

On the Lexham Press blog, we rounded up some of the buzz surrounding the release of Reformed Dogmatics in English. Here’s some of the praise Vos’ Reformed Dogmatics has received:

Like books, people can become ‘classics.’ Great in their day, but richer and more fulfilling with time. Not yet a classic, Vos’ never-before-published Reformed Dogmatics is more like a lost Shakespeare play recently discovered. There seems to have been a flurry in recent years of systematic theologians writing with an eye for biblical theology. With this series we now have a biblical theologian writing a systematic theology. Thanks to Lexham Press for giving us such a long-awaited but impressive access to this much-discussed gem.

—Michael Horton, professor of theology and apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

The state of access to deep, historic, orthodox Reformed theology has progressed exponentially in the last decade or so. Resources previously inaccessible to many have now become available to a vastly wider audience. In my view, the capstone of this accessibility is in this masterful work of Geerhardus Vos. Vos has the singularly unique accumen and ability to summarize and state concisely some of the deepest truths of Reformed theology. These volumes will now be my first recommendation to anyone who wants to understand the riches of the Bibles’ teaching in a compressed and clear way. Thanks to Richard B. Gaffin Jr., to the translators, and to Lexham Press for putting this work into our hands.

—K. Scott Oliphint, professor of apologetics and systematic theology, Westminster Seminary California

Get it today!

For the first time ever, you can now access Reformed Dogmatics in English, translated and edited by biblical theologian and Vos expert Richard B. Gaffin Jr. You’ll gain valuable insight into the formative thought of this influential theologian.

The first three volumes are available now, with the final two volumes forthcoming over the next two years.
