Lewis’ influential legacy

C.S. Lewis has had an incalculable influence on Christianity in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. John Piper, in a lecture on the impact of Lewis in his own life, says, “Lewis gave me, and continues to give me, an intense sense of the astonishing ‘realness’ of things. He had the ability to see and feel what most of us see and do not see.” Commenting on Lewis’ death in 1963, J.R.R. Tolkien remarked, “So far I have felt the normal feelings of a man of my age—like an old tree that is losing all its leaves one by one: this feels like an axe-blow near the roots.”

Lewis was born to Irish parents on November 29, 1898. His early childhood obsession with fairy tales would go on to influence his most famous work, The Chronicles of Narnia. During his adolescence, Lewis rejected the idea of God as silly and without proof. Entering Oxford University in 1916, Lewis left the following year to serve as a soldier in World War I. He was injured soon after and was sent back to England where he resumed his studies at Oxford. After graduation, he joined the faculty of English literature at Oxford, where he befriended the unknown Anglo-Saxon scholar J.R.R. Tolkien.

His struggle with Christianity would come to a head in 1931 when, after a discussion with his friends Tolkien and Hugo Dyson, Lewis accepted the Christian faith after a visit to the zoo. From that point on, Lewis spent the rest of his life discussing and defending Christianity from modern ideas such as relativism and materialism. Near the end of his life, he penned his most enduring work, The Chronicles of Narnia, a children’s tale about the land of Narnia and its protector, the lion Aslan. He went on to marry Joy Gresham, who passed away in 1960. Lewis followed her in death on November 22, 1963, the same day as the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Add classic, enduring works to your library

This collection contains a variety of works from Lewis’ long writing career. His Christian works provide critiques of secular ideas, like materialism, as well as defenses of Christian doctrine, like the actuality of miracles. Mere Christianity, one of his most popular works, presents two of Lewis’ influential apologetic arguments for Christianity: the “trilemma” argument and the argument from universal morality. The Screwtape Letters is written from the perspective of a lead demon teaching his nephew how to lead humans to hell. And Miracles is Lewis’ argument for the presence of supernatural intervention in the natural world.

This collection also includes his three-volume science-fiction epic, The Space Trilogy, which follows the escapades of Dr. Ransom as he travels the solar system fighting the forces of evil. Although more popularly known for his fiction and Christian nonfiction writings, Lewis published many works of literary criticism on works by medieval poets, Paradise Lost, Norse mythology, and more, which are featured here.

Lewis’ collected letters are considered a goldmine of information regarding the progression of his thought during his lifetime. With the Logos edition of his letters, you’ll be able to perform searches based on the recipient of the letter and the date it was written. For instance, if you wanted to read every letter written to Tolkien during the 1950s, simply input these parameters and Logos retrieves all of Lewis’ relevant letters. For the Lewis scholar or enthusiast, Logos makes Lewis’ works more accessible than ever.

Learning Hebrew with Logos Bible Software

rich-penixToday’s guest post is from Rich Penix. Penix recently completed a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. He currently serves on the ministry staff at Eden Baptist Church in Burnsville, Minnesota.

When I first considered learning Hebrew online, I had my doubts. I was worried about the lack of classroom accountability and personal encouragement from fellow students. However, after hearing glowing reports from fellow seminary students about Dr. Mark Futato’s Logos-integrated approach to learning Hebrew, I decided to take the plunge.

After completing three semesters of Hebrew through a Logos-integrated approach, I’m sold.

Here’s why: I was shown how to use Hebrew with the instrument in hand that I plan to use for regular teaching and preaching in the years to come.

The challenge of bridging the gap

Dr. Mark Futato is the Robert L. Maclellan Professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. After years of observing students struggle to maintain their knowledge of Hebrew, Dr. Futato decided to create a teaching model that incorporates Hebrew learning within the context of Logos Bible Software. It is the intent in this review to both encourage teachers to creatively and strategically utilize Bible software into their teaching and for students to take such courses that recognize the enduring benefits of Bible software.

Many graduate from seminary with little resolve to maintain their knowledge of biblical Hebrew. One of the factors that contributes to such an attitude is the lack of clarity on how to bridge the gap between memorizing rules of Hebrew grammar and the joys of meaningful exegesis.

Imagine if your child took music lessons, but was only taught music theory. Wouldn’t it seem strange if your child rarely, if ever, touched the musical instrument with which he should use such knowledge? The same applies to learning a language. How much more effective is Hebrew when learned with the proper instrument in hand? Learning biblical Hebrew through Logos Bible Software helps bridge that gap.

Integrating coursework with Logos

In Dr. Futato’s own words, he states:

My Logos-integrated Hebrew courses are primarily geared toward training students in such a way that they will continually use their knowledge of Hebrew and technology throughout their ministries. By incorporating Logos into approximately half of the course, my desire is to equip students to be more precise and profound in the exegesis of the Old Testament, through a knowledge of basic Hebrew grammar and Logos software.

The course begins with a walk-through of how to organize one’s Logos library. Preferred Bible translations, Bible dictionaries, and Hebrew lexicons are organized in precisely the manner prescribed by the professor, so exegetical assignments may be completed in an organized, uniform manner.

Like any Hebrew course, there are regular quizzes and exams testing the student’s understanding of Hebrew grammar and vocabulary. However, a large percentage of the final grade is determined through weekly workbooks that record the student’s answers to exegetical questions that must be ascertained through one’s ever-growing dexterity with Logos Bible Software. Workbooks are graded upon the student’s ability to perform basic operations in Logos, such as morphological searches, syntactical searches, searching the semantic range of a word and other Hebrew word studies. Students are not simply asked to complete a given task in Logos, but to defend why they have made certain exegetical conclusions from the biblical data. This exercise in critical thinking serves the student well as they interact with the Hebrew text.

With an emphasis toward the faithful application of Hebrew, each student is asked to read and comment on the following works:

These works were enjoyable to read and provided helpful direction toward the ongoing use of Hebrew in the future.

The benefits of Logos-integrated learning

In summary, I wholeheartedly recommend learning Hebrew through Logos. As a result of studying Hebrew through this model, I instinctively gravitate toward using Logos to search Hebrew words and research syntactical questions in the same manner I was taught. By having a trusted Bible scholar walk me through how to use Logos, I was immediately shown how to practically use Hebrew for precise exegesis. This guidance was a tremendous gift.

If you are a seminary student, I’d encourage you to consider fulfilling your Hebrew requirements through a Logos-integrated approach. Chances are you will likely use some form of Bible software down the road for teaching or sermon prep. Whether you take one of Dr. Futato’s courses through the Global Campus of Reformed Theological Seminary or a similarly constructed course, I’d encourage you to capitalize on a method that teaches the essentials of the language alongside the essentials of Bible software—it’s a win-win!

Dot-to-Dot Puzzles, the Hierarchy of Understanding, and Logos 6



Logos 6: delivering insight

When we were deciding how to talk about Logos 6, we landed on the tagline “delivering insight.” We were very intentional with this message, which came out of conversations we were having about how one gains understanding in their field of study, then how they communicate that understanding to their audience.

We found that Logos users were looking for much more than just data, information, or knowledge; they were truly seeking wisdom.

In the Hierarchy of Understanding model, one moves from data to information, from information to knowledge, and finally from knowledge to wisdom.

connect-the-dots-lightbulb-logos-6Insight is the bridge between knowledge and wisdom

Remember when you were a kid and you did “dot-to-dot” puzzles? You know the ones I’m talking about. You would draw lines from dot to dot, and when you were done, it made a picture.

Insight is a lot like that. Insight happens when you connect all the dots and reveal something that was previously hidden or just not obvious. Insight is the “Aha!” moment of discovery when, after careful exploration and observation, you come to a new truth or realization that you’ve never had before.

However, there’s a real problem, which is that insight isn’t obvious. It’s elusive, hard to come by and frankly, pretty rare.

Insight comes when you connect the dots. But what do you do when you don’t have access to all the dots? When it comes to study of the Scripture and the ancient world, that question becomes even more complex: how do you connect the dots when the dots are dispersed over a few millennia of history, buried in books, logged in archaeological records, hidden in ancient manuscripts, and written in foreign languages?

l6-overview-gold-featuredLogos 6 is the ultimate “dot connector”

Built on a unique platform with hand‐tagged, fully interconnected biblical resources that are full of “dots,” Logos 6 is able to find and connect those dots with lightning speed and deliver insight by revealing truths that were previously hidden.

Logos 6 sets the stage for those elusive “Aha!” moments of insight, helping you bridge the gap from knowledge to wisdom.

Find out which base package will help you connect the dots you need to deliver insight!

Evaluating Textual Variation with Logos 6

textual-variants-tool-logos-6Most guides to exegesis include an important step in pursuing the exegesis of a given passage: establishing the text. This is the exegetical step where textual variation is taken into account, and one notes and weighs the variations in a passage to determine the text that will be exegeted.

In previous versions of Logos, the Exegetical Guide included a section called “Apparatuses,” which was the primary source of information to be used in establishing the text for exegesis.

In Logos 6, the Exegetical Guide’s Textual Variants section is a complete redesign of what used to be the Apparatuses section. The goal of the redesign is to make it easy to get to information in your library that may help with evaluating textual variation.

There are six parts to the Textual Variants section, each representing different types or classes of resources or data relevant to examining textual variation:

  • Textual commentaries
  • Apparatuses
  • Editions
  • Transcriptions
  • Ancient versions
  • Online manuscripts

Textual commentaries

These are specialized commentary resources that comment on units of textual variation instead of commenting with exegetical information. The most commonly known example of this type of resource is Bruce Metzger’s A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament.

Most textual commentaries have been focused on the variations found in the New Testament. For Logos 6, we’ve created a new textual commentary, targeted at the lay user with little Hebrew or Greek knowledge. It covers over 2,000 variation units throughout the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament.

The textual-commentaries section extracts the first portion of the note for the verse under study. This helps you get an idea what the variation is about, and it might help determine if you need to research the variation in more depth.

Other textual commentaries (such as Metzger’s) are listed in the Textual Variants section; if you click the title in your software, it will open the resource to the appropriate entry.


Apparatuses are those things at the bottom of the page of some editions of the Hebrew Bible and of the Greek New Testament. They are typically laden with abbreviations, cryptic to read, and difficult to understand. They are highly compressed forms of variation data. This section largely reproduces what Logos 4 and 5’s Apparatuses section did: provide appropriate links to apparatuses so that the textual evidence for a given variation can be further evaluated.


For the purposes of the Textual Variants section, an “edition” is a version of an original-language text produced in the modern era. The use of “modern era” is wide, so these are essentially editions (not transcriptions) produced after 1500.

This section lists editions of the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament—such as the Lexham Hebrew Bible (LHB), the Biblica Hebraica Westmonasteriensis (BHW), the SBL Greek New Testament (SBLGNT), the Nestle-Aland 28th edition, and the like. Editions of the Septuagint are also included for references covered by that corpus.


Different than an edition, a transcription is an attempt to transcribe the text as it occurs in a particular manuscript. These also often include the pagination and line breaks of the manuscripts in question. Items included in this section would be the Qumran Biblical Dead Sea Scrolls, The Text of the Earliest New Testament Greek Manuscripts, Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Bezae Cantabrigiensis, and others.

Ancient versions

We read our Bibles in our own language, as they have been translated by experts for those who do not know the original languages. This is not new; translations of the Bible have been made from ancient times. What we call the Septuagint is a translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek. There are other of these ancient or “early” versions, including versions in Aramaic (the Targums) and Latin (the Vulgate) as well as Coptic, Syriac, and all sorts of other languages. If you have access to any of these in your library of Logos resources, they will appear here for you to consult.

Online manuscripts

At present, this feature only works for New Testament references. It relies on information provided by the Institute for New Testament Textual Research (Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung, or INTF) which is the organization behind the critical editions of the Greek New Testament: the Editio Critica Maior, the Nestle-Aland family of texts, and the United Bible Societies editions of the Greek New Testament.

The information behind online manuscripts is provided through a web service operated by the INTF, known as the New Testament Virtual Manuscript Room (NTVMR). This web service offers a public interface to much of the data that is used by the textual critics at the INTF in their work preparing editions of the Greek New Testament. In other words, where available, these are the transcriptions and the manuscript images being used to inform textual critics as they prepare critical editions of the Greek New Testament.

In Logos 6, whatever data is available to the public via the NTVMR is made available for your consultation. This may simply be indexing data that confirms a manuscript contains some portion of the specified passage, or it may be images or transcriptions of manuscript pages that contain that passage.

One example is Mark 13:8. The NTVMR contains data from many majuscule (uncial) and minuscule (cursive) manuscripts for this reference:

When a manuscript such as Sinaiticus or Bezae is available as a resource inside of Logos, the title of the manuscript is linked to the Logos resource. The links to transcriptions and images outside of Logos are available for consultation as well. Additional data entries about the manuscript (date, contents, page layout, and language) are also given.

In other words, for many major manuscripts (and several not-so-major manuscripts), you now have links straight to reputable, verified, and accurate manuscript transcriptions and images. For those who work though the text at this level, this is an incredible treasure trove of information.

Dig into valuable insights

If you’re only interested in short descriptions of variations, you can focus on the textual-commentaries section to see what variations, if any, have been noted by other studies and grow into the other sections as your studies require and skill grows. If you require more information on a given variation, you can dig straight into an apparatus, or into comparisons of modern editions you have access to in your Logos library. If you have transcriptions of material available such as the Qumran Dead Sea Scrolls, or ancient editions such as the Targums, Vulgate, Syriac, or Coptic versions, these are presented as well. Finally, transcriptions and images of several major and minor New Testament manuscripts are available through the interface to the New Testament Virtual Manuscript Room (NTVMR).

Logos 6’s Textual Variants section handles more data than previous versions of Logos Bible Software and presents it in a more meaningful and easier-to-use manner.

3 Tips for Sticking with Daily Bible Readings

Logos-6-launch-Small-Group-300x300The new year is the perfect time for a fresh start: we get the chance to reset and create goals for ourselves in hopes of improving our lives. But even if we start the year with the best intentions of developing positive changes, they often fall by the wayside.

One common New Year’s resolution is to read Scripture, whether it’s the Old or New Testament, the entire biblical text, or even just a few verses a day.

Ultimately, it’s not about a New Year’s resolution; it’s about cultivating a daily habit of spending time in the Word.

And with Logos 6, you’ll get the tools you need to stay on track, remain accountable, and reach the goals you set out to accomplish.

Here are three ways Logos 6 will help you stay in the Word this year:

1. Get daily readings delivered to your desktop.

In Logos 6, you’ll always find your daily reading right on your homepage, making it convenient to jump right into your daily passage. Check off each passage when you’re done, then come back the next day—a new passage will be set up and ready for you.

You can start a reading plan in two different ways: either create a custom reading plan by choosing your text and breaking up the readings into manageable sections, or select a premade reading plan to take you through a specific book of the Bible, a thematic topic, or a set of seasonal readings.

Here are some premade reading plans you can choose from:

  • 5 Days on Spiritual Growth
  • 7 Days on Jesus’ Birth
  • 10 Days on Patience
  • 14 Days on Grace
  • 21 Days on Prayer
  • Advent Reading Plan
  • Luke 1 Month
  • The Bible’s Story in 30 Days
  • And many more!

Select these premade plans from either your desktop software or through the free Logos app—your selection will sync across your devices, so you can stay on track no matter where your day takes you.

2. Gain support and accountability through community.

One of the obstacles to sticking with a reading plan on your own is a lack of accountability—it can be difficult to stay motivated or to catch up if you fall behind.

Logos 6 has two types of reading plans: private and group. Group plans provide accountability and follow-through that you don’t have on your own.

If you’re part of a Faithlife Group, you can set up a plan and read together. Not only will reading together hold you accountable, but you’ll also be able to share your thoughts and insights through Community Notes.

You can create a reading plan for your Bible study group, your class, or even your entire church! Let’s say you meet with a small group once a week: instead of having to recall what you read seven days prior, you’ll be able to ask questions and share ideas as you read.

3. Map out a manageable plan in seconds.

When you create a custom reading plan, you get to set your own parameters. Just choose your Bible translation and set a schedule, and Logos will automatically break up the text and generate a plan that fits your criteria.

If you’re not sure where to start, why not go from the beginning? In fact, if you create a plan to read the entire Bible in 90 days starting January 1, you’ll be done by Easter. Your first reading will explore Genesis 1–11, exploring the story of Creation, Noah, and the Tower of Babel. Here’s a taste of what you’ll read:

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

Genesis 1:1–5
