On April 27, Faithlife is partnering with Dr.’s Les and Leslie Parrott, authors of the much-praised premarital resource Saving Your Marriage before It Starts, for a free webinar on premarital counseling especially for pastors and ministry leaders. Faithlife spoke with the Parrotts about marriage and divorce in the church and what ministry leaders can do to strengthen Christian marriages.
You need only open a newspaper, scroll through Twitter, or log into Facebook to see them: shocking statistics on the state of marriage. Although oft-repeated claims of a 50% divorce rate in the church are misleading, the outlook isn’t exactly rosy. According to sociologist Bradley Wright, 38% of Christians who regularly attend church have been divorced. That number may seem shocking, but New York Times bestselling authors and marriage experts Les and Leslie Parrott offer what they see as an even more surprising statistic.

Most of the skills involved in good Bible reading are things people do intuitively anyway. So why bother reading a Bible study magazine or purchasing Bible software—plus all the resources (commentaries, books, hermeneutics manuals) that make that software worth having?

To some, the concepts of love and law contradict one another. While love conjures images of warmth and family, law conjures images of coldness and isolation. In our contemporary culture, loving others and believing in objective moral standards are often seen as mutually exclusive commitments. But love and law are not opposed to one another. In fact, according to the Bible, love and law fit together by faith.

During a recent study, I wanted to go to the verse where the biblical writer admonishes the lazy person to observe the actions of the ant. For the life of me, however, I could not remember where the verse was located.
I also didn’t want to interrupt the flow of my study to build an elaborate search so I turned to the Logos 6 feature called Inline Searching. Here’s how I leveraged the tool to quickly locate a verse:

Stop and be astonished, if you can, at a statement from Jesus in Mark 10 that certainly astonished his disciples: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven” (Mark 10:25).
It’s hard to be surprised by this little saying if you’ve grown up with the Bible, or even if you’ve just known it for a long time. It’s commonplace.
