New: Mobile Ed’s Discipleship Training Bundle

mobile-ed-discipleship-training-bundlePart of living the Christian life is discipling others. In the Great Commission, Jesus commanded his disciples to go and “make disciples” (Matt. 28:19).

This is an intimidating mandate. When we’re still in the process of growing in our walk with Jesus (which is always), we may not feel adequate enough to walk alongside someone else and help them grow. We may be held back by questions like, “What if I can’t answer their questions?” or “What if I don’t have the insight they need?” Mobile Ed’s three-course Discipleship Training Bundle was designed to help Christians answer those questions and to disciple effectively.

In ED101 Introducing Discipleship, Dr. Greg Ogden, author of the book Discipleship Essentials, looks at the idea of discipleship in the Bible and covers how to go about the discipleship process, providing practical steps for implementing a disciple-making strategy in your church. In PC151 Theology of Everyday Life, Dr. Dan Doriani looks at what the Bible says about everyday aspects of life, which will help you answer questions about work and your “calling,” food and the body, play and rest, and more. In BI181 Introducing Bible Translations, Dr. Mark Strauss helps you understand the translation philosophies behind the different versions of the Bible. You’ll learn how each brings out different aspects of the original languages. The next time someone asks you, “Which translation should I use?” you’ll have an educated answer.

These courses will help equip you to disciple others. You’ll be better prepared to come alongside someone, answer their questions, and grow with them.

Order the Discipleship Training Bundle today, or get it for free (along with Dr. Darrell Bock’s BI100 Learn to Study the Bible course) as one of Logos 6′s introductory offers.

Spurgeon Commentary Collection: Shipping Soon

spurgeon-commentary-collection-new-testament-lettersCharles Spurgeon was one of the most influential and prolific preachers of the modern era. Last year, Lexham Press released the first volume of the Spurgeon Commentary Collection, Galatians. Since then, we’ve been working hard to complete the remaining nine volumes in this series. We’re nearing completion of these volumes, and we’re proud to announce that they’ll be released by the end of the year!

You can order all nine volumes in the Spurgeon Commentary Collection for over 40% off. But hurry—you’ll only be able to take advantage of a deal this good while it’s still on Pre-Pub!

What makes this commentary different

Spurgeon’s writings on the Bible fill dozens of volumes and encompass both published books and spoken sermons. The Spurgeon Commentary Collection looks to collect his thoughts from across his corpus in an easy-to-use commentary format that is tied to the biblical text. We’ve gone back and curated excerpts from Spurgeon where he’s explicitly citing a verse and from places where he’s alluding to the text—something a simple search wouldn’t be able to do.

We’ve also enhanced the Logos editions with amazing functionality, tagging illustrations and application content with preaching themes so that they pop up when you’re using the Sermon Starter Guide. This functionality saves time if you’re preparing sermons or are trying to find content from Spurgeon on specific topics.

A glimpse at what’s coming

Our editors have wrapped up the majority of these nine volumes.

Here’s an illustration from Spurgeon Commentary: 2 Timothy to show you a glimpse of just one of Spurgeon’s nuggets of wisdom:

Good Soldiers Are Obedient (2 Tim 2:3)

Preaching Themes: Courage, Obedience

A truly good soldier of Jesus Christ knows nothing about difficulties except as things to be surmounted. If his Master bids him perform exploits too hard for him, he draws upon the resources of omnipotence, and achieves impossibilities. Wellington sent word to his troops one night, “Ciudad Rodrigo must be taken tonight.” And what do you think was the commentary of the British soldiers appointed for the attack? “Then,” they all said, “we will do it.”

So when our great Captain sends, as He does to us, the word of command, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation” (Mark 16:15), if we were all good soldiers of the cross, we should say at once, “We will do it.”

Pre-order now!

Spurgeon was a truly gifted orator and author. The Spurgeon Commentary Collection is designed for functionality, usability, and readability to make Spurgeon’s writing easier than ever to understand and apply.

These nine volumes are shipping soon, and you can get over 40% off this collection on Pre-Pub—pre-order the Spurgeon Commentary Collection: New Testament Letters today!

Bible Study Software Put to the Test: Logos 6 in Review

logos-6-reviewsOver the last month, many ministry leaders, authors, and speakers have given Logos 6 a spin and shared their thoughts. They’re writing blog posts, planning sermons, creating lessons, and studying the Word with the most advanced Bible study tool on the planet.

Here’s what they’re saying about Logos 6:

Equipping church leaders

Communicating in-depth biblical insight to congregations is no small task. Tools like Cultural Concepts and Interactive Media are helping pastors put difficult ideas in simple, presentable terms. With Media Search, you get quick access to related images without interrupting study and planning!

Logos 6 does an excellent job of mixing classical study resources with interactive, digital resources. Logos 6 is a must have application for ministers, teachers, students, and anyone who loves to immerse themselves in biblical studies.

—Eric Dye (read the full review at ChurchMag)

As I go on using Logos, I am increasingly impressed by some of the technical tools available to me, tools that I am still discovering. These add, if not vast swathes of usefulness to my study processes, at least some real and helpful insights and nuances.

—Jeremy Walker (read the full review at reformation21)

Authoring new books

For the first time ever, Logos 6 gives you access to a semantic outline that covers the entire New Testament: the Propositional Flow Outline. Hours of exegetical research have already been done for you, taking the process out of your research and study. Your writing process is made even more simple with automatic citations, ensuring that you never forget where your information came from while securing your credibility as a writer.

Logos 6 will ever be before me during my work on the Philippians volume in the Baylor Handbook on the Greek NT.

—Dr. William Varner (read the full review at DrVarner.co)

. . . already my Bible study is reaching a new level of depth, and really, bringing me back to a passion for pursuing Jesus in his Word . . .

—Zach Hoag (read the full review at The Nuance)

Better Bible study

Logos 6 is your central place for all things related to Bible study. Using the new Everything Search, you can quickly assemble all of your resources on a given topic in one place, with one search. Factbook is the new encyclopedia for Bible information—use it to build a general understanding of a topic or to follow links to all your related resources for specific insights.

. . . Logos 6, is an amazing compendium of data and tools that comprise an exhaustive library of Bible study resources just a mouse-click away.

—Steve Howells (read the full review at Search The Bible)

After finishing Micah, I wanted to dig a little deeper on some of the themes from the book. I was able to search ‘justice,’ ‘mercy,’ and even ‘Micah’ to learn more. Logos pulled a plethora of resources from commentaries, Bible dictionaries, books on the topics, ancient texts, and even illustrated encyclopedias. I could see maps of where Micah lived and preached, a timeline that explained his place in relation to the other minor prophets, and an easy-to-understand overview of Micah.

—Amy Jackson (read the full review at Christianity Today)

At the forefront of academic research

Studying the ancient languages has never been easier. Logos 6′s new Ancient Literature section takes parallel passages and intertextual connections to a new level, exposing shared language and thought across relevant literature. And your scholarly journals are now more accessible with the new Journals Section—instantly connect your search queries to the latest theological discoveries and to insights from today’s leading scholars.

For personal and professional study—preparation of Sunday school lessons, for example, or of classroom lectures—Logos allows me to focus on the content rather than the process of getting it.

—Dan Olinger (read the full review at BJU.edu)

With the advent of Logos 6 comes some great new features for both pastors and scholars.

—Danny Zacharias (read the full review at DannyZacharias.net)

Bible study on the go

Logos’ mobility makes it a great tool for busy travelers. With new interactive infographics and Interlinear Explorers, not only can you study on the go, but you can prepare your message and create unique, engaging visuals for your next presentation. Capture complex concepts visually with the new Psalms Explorer and updated Timeline.

I’ve always loved reading the Bible but here’s the thing. I want to be able to do it on my computer. I want to be able to study the Bible in-depth wherever I am without lugging a pile of books along with me.

—Darlene Schacht (read the full review at Time-Warp Wife)

The ‘media’ search allows me to search all the media in my personal library and online. This is a wonderful tool for someone who is trying to put together a multimedia presentation on a particular topic.

—Stephen Altrogge (read the full review at The Blazing Center)

Empowering the Christian community

Logos 6: Factbook

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

Just like the CIA publishes The World Factbook with facts and figures about the countries of the world, Logos 6 presents the Factbook (replacing Bible Facts in Logos 5), which produces reports about biblical people, places, things, and events, as well as a host of other subjects. In addition to being opened from numerous hyperlinks throughout the program and the Context menu, the Factbook is housed and accessed from the Tools menu.

Try this:

  • Choose Tools | Factbook
  • Type a subject in the box (A), such as a:
    • Biblical book, like Ephesians
    • Biblical person, like Moses
    • Biblical place, like Jericho
    • Biblical thing, like sandal
    • Biblical event, like feed 5000
    • Biographical person, like John Wesley
    • Topic, like baptism
    • Cultural concept, like marriage
    • Preaching theme, like mercy
  • Select your desired item from the drop-down list (or press the Enter key if your item is already highlighted in the list) (B)

morris-proctor-factbook-1 
The various sections in a report differ depending on the subject under study, but expect to see information types like:

  • Media
  • Dictionary articles
  • Search results from your library
  • Referent dataset
  • Community tags
  • Miscellaneous links to Wikipedia and searches

For quick access to the Factbook, right click a word in a Bible and open the Factbook from the Context menu! The more you use it, the more you’ll be impressed with this goldmine of information neatly organized in a hyperlinked article for almost any subject related to biblical studies.

For complete written instructions on all the new Logos 6 features, check out the Logos 6: What’s New? Manual or attend our in-depth Camp Logos in Arizona or Tennessee.
