In Memory of R.C. Sproul: 20 Quotes on the Glory of God

R.C. Sproul, beloved theologian, writer, and pastor, went to be with the Lord in the afternoon of December 14th. He founded Ligonier Ministries in the 1970s to provide theologically rich Christian teaching to people with little or no access to it. Using radio, print, and television media, Sproul introduced many people to the Reformed theology, advocating for a revival of Calvinism among evangelicals. [Read more…]

Introducing the New Logos Mobile App

Logos Pro Weekly Training: Studying Satan’s Tactics

The best defense, as they say, is a good offense. Put in prose, this means that it’s generally better to be proactive rather than passive toward your enemies. The same goes for the enemies of Jesus and his followers. The better God’s people know one of their premier enemies, namely Satan, the more effective they will be in overcoming his schemes.

In this week’s video, we’ll take a look at some of Satan’s tactics and pinpoint how specific workers of evil attack God’s people. As a second part to this exercise, launch your own study to determine how you should arm yourself to go on the offense. [Read more…]

How to Create a Slide Show with Sermon Editor

As you well know Logos Bible Software is huge, with many features. Depending on your wants and methods of study and lesson preparation, you may not need all that Logos has to offer. So I always tell people at Camp Logos, Use what you need, but always try to explore more available options. You may just discover a very helpful tool.

Let’s apply that advice to the Sermon Editor. As I’ve written before, with one Sermon file we can create up to four separate documents at once! You may, however, respond, “In my current situation, I just don’t need all that power and flexibility. So, I’m not using the Sermon feature.”

Fair enough. If, however, you’re like many Bible students and teachers, you at least occasionally need to prepare a PowerPoint slideshow of Scripture verses. If that’s the case, then just use the Sermon Editor to quickly create your slides. [Read more…]

The Collected Thought of a Renowned Theologian

Over the course of his noteworthy career as a theologian, John Frame corresponded prolifically with theologians, pastors, and students, answering their questions on matters of the faith, the church, and the practice of theology.

The Theological Correspondence of John Frame now makes this correspondence available exclusively through Lexham Press and Logos Bible Software. More personal, but no less theologically robust than his academic work, Dr. Frame himself states that this collection of letters is the single most comprehensive account of his theological thought.

How Evangelical Theologians Are Tackling the Doctrine of the Trinity

The Trinity is a hot topic right now—because of its relationship to discussions about gender (see 1 Cor 11:3) and its place in the perennial back-and-forth between more confessionalist and more biblicist strains of evangelical faith.

Recently I attended the annual Evangelical Theological Society meeting in Providence, Rhode Island, and I felt that if I was going to have a responsible view in these important debates, I needed to listen to people who’d studied the Trinity far more carefully than I have. You may feel the same way. [Read more…]

What Does It Mean To “Stand in the Council”?


Most people think a prophet is someone empowered by God to foretell the future. No doubt, prophets announced God’s intentions, but forecasting future events wasn’t their primary job description. A prophet’s chief task was to serve as God’s mouthpiece to His covenant people Israel and to her enemies. So how did someone become a prophet? Was there some sort of heavenly qualification? In fact, there was.

You might think the standard for a prophet was whether their words came to pass exactly as uttered (Deut 18:15–22). But that’s actually a by-product of the real litmus test, which we read about in Jeremiah:

For who among them has stood in the council (סוד, sôd) of the Lord to see and to hear his word, or who has paid attention to his word and listened? [The Lord says] … “If they had stood in my council (סוד, sôd), then they would have proclaimed my words to my people” (Jer 23:18, 22).

What does it mean to “stand in the council”? Jeremiah elaborates: “to see and to hear his word … to pay attention to his word and listen.” The one essential test of a prophet—that preceded their ability to deliver a divine message—was that the prophet had to see and hear God in His council.
