Pursuing the Knowledge of God with Mobile Ed and Logos 6

mobile-ed-bi100-learn-to-study-the-bibleI want to know God’s thoughts—the rest are mere details.

This quote is famously attributed to Albert Einstein. Though we probably don’t agree with his religious views and we don’t literally chase after the knowledge of God’s thoughts, this hyperbolic phrase captures something about the Christian’s heart. Those who follow Jesus are characterized by a desire to know God more deeply: to know his character, his intentions, and his desires. Thankfully we worship a God who speaks. His Word to us is his self-revelation, and through the reading and study of it, we know more of this God who called us out of darkness.

That’s why Bible study is important; we want to know God, and we know someone best through communication. My marriage would hardly be a marriage at all if my wife and I never spoke to each other. How could I really know her? But because we communicate daily, I continue to get to know my wife’s heart and our marriage grows stronger. Likewise, if we are not communicating with God through prayer and the reading of his Word, we cannot ever truly know him.

In Dr. Darrell Bock’s BI100 Learn to Study the Bible, he builds off this idea with Proverbs 2:1–5:

My son, if you receive my words
and treasure up my commandments with you,
making your ear attentive to wisdom
and inclining your heart to understanding;
yes, if you call out for insight
and raise your voice for understanding,
if you seek it like silver
and search for it as for hidden treasures,
then you will understand the fear of the LORD
and find the knowledge of God.

Dr. Bock says that “the reward on the other end is the reception of knowledge about God and the deepening of the fear or respect of God. In other words, our hearts are shaped as well as our minds.” It’s this conviction that helped drive Dr. Bock and Mobile Ed to create a new course specifically designed to help people grow in their Bible study.

Do better study with Dr. Darrell L. Bock

BI100 Learn to Study the Bible is a Mobile Ed course that will help you take your Bible study to the next level—beyond simply reading the text.

Save 30% on This Month’s Top Product

november-top-product-a-w-pinkThis month only, you can save 30% on one of our best-selling classic commentary series: the A.W. Pink Collection.

Through November, you can add this 40-volume collection to your Logos library at an incredible discount. Just use code AWP2014 at checkout.

Study with one of the greatest pastors of all time

Arthur Walkington Pink pastored churches in the United States and Australia for most of his working life. At age 24, Pink experienced an evangelical conversion and crossed the Atlantic from Great Britain to study at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. But after only six weeks, he left to take up a pastoral ministry. In 1922, he started a magazine titled Studies in Scriptures, which circulated among English-speaking Christians worldwide. The magazine “was feeding several of the men who were leading a return to doctrinal Christianity,” including Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Douglas Johnson.

Preparing the next generation of pastors

In his commentary on Ephesians for the Preaching the Word series, R. Kent Hughes relates how his life was changed through an encounter with Pink’s writings: “As a sixteen-year-old I read Arthur W. Pink’s The Sovereignty of God, through which I was made to see the transcendent holiness of God, my own utter sinfulness, and his sovereign working in bringing men and women to himself.”

Likewise, many Bible-college students and aspiring pastors get their first introduction to commentaries from one of Pink’s works. Biographer Iain H. Murrary observes, “The widespread circulation of his writings after his death made him one of the most influential evangelical authors in the second half of the twentieth century.” His writing sparked a revival of expository preaching and focused readers’ hearts on biblical living.

Discover the heart of A.W. Pink

The A.W. Pink Collection gives you Pink’s detailed commentaries, as well as his collected works covering the Beatitudes, divine healing, justification, eternal punishment, and more.

Take advantage of this limited-time savings on works that have influenced generations. Save 30% on the A.W. Pink Collection today when you use coupon code AWP2014 at checkout.

Regularly $199.95—get it for $179.95!

This fantastic commentary set for pastors, teachers, students, and laity features the words of William Barclay, which continue to inspire readers today with scripturally sound exegesis. Barclay’s purposefully accessible writing style is evidence of his passion for bringing God’s Word to both laity and biblical scholars. His thoroughly researched works begin with important historical background, clarifying the context in which each New Testament book was originally written. Then, launching into commentary, Barclay discusses the Scriptures a handful of verses at a time.

The Life and Works of George Whitefield (13 vols.)

Regularly $199.95—get it for $179.95!

In these volumes, you’ll find hundreds of letters and journal entries that illuminate George Whitefield’s character and his earnest desire to bring all whom he encountered to Christ.

The Supremacy of God in Preaching, rev. ed.

Regularly $13.99—get it for $11.50!

John Piper contends that preaching is not simply an exercise in motivational speaking. The goal of preaching is to worship God and proclaim him as supreme. It is God’s desire to be glorified through the preacher, and the aim of the preacher is to respond accordingly. The Supremacy of God in Preaching is not another “how-to” guide for the pulpit ministry, but is a challenge issued toward every preacher to elevate the God of the Bible through sound biblical preaching.

Take time to honor your leaders

It’s not too late to let your pastors know how much they mean to you, so be sure to take time to show your gratitude before the month is over. And remember to continue to pray for your church leaders.

A new propositional outline of the Bible was created for the Greek New Testament, and it can be displayed as a live filter alongside your choice of English translations.

The all-new Bible Atlas will soon cover every mappable story in the Bible; it features new content in a pan-and-zoom interface as intuitive as any online mapping tool.

And we’re introducing a new type of digital tool for highly specialized work in specific areas of Bible study. The Psalms and Proverbs explorers are specifically designed for exploring those books, and they feature original scholarship fully integrated into the tools. This is just the start of a series of new tools for going deeper in your Bible study.
