It’s All about Having the Right Tools for the Job


I remember a very important lesson my father taught me growing up. Having the right tools for any job was the difference between success and failure. Coming from a man who had spent the last 30 years of his life in the construction and aerospace industry, I stopped and listened. This lesson was particularly applicable when my father was teaching me how to restore my first car, a 1967 VW Beetle. Even the simple task of changing a spark plug required the right tools.

Geerhardus Vos’ Reformed Dogmatics Is Now Complete

Vos 5 Vol

The fifth and final volume of Geerhardus Vos’ Reformed Dogmatics is now available! For over five years, Richard B. Gaffin Jr. has been diligently working to bring this classic work into English for the first time ever. The first four volumes were extremely well received, with Michael Horton likening them to “a lost Shakespeare play recently discovered.”

This last volume presents Vos’ views on Ecclesiology, the Sacraments, and Eschatology. First, he deals with the essence and organization of the Church and its purpose. Then, Vos moves the discussion to the Means of Grace, going beyond merely the sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist into issues of the Word of God and Gospel Proclamation as well. Lastly, he concludes with his examination of eschatology both in the sense of “things to come” and also in the sense of the current state of the Church as existing in the “already, but not yet.”

How to Easily View Multiple Resources at the Same Time

view-multiple-resourcesAs you probably know, Logos 7 is here! So I hope you’re discovering and enjoying its many new features. Today I’ll highlight one new feature that has been much anticipated by many Logos users: Multiview Resources.

Multiview Resources is similar in that resources follow the leader, but now all the resources reside in the same panel! Let’s take a look at an example with daily calendar devotionals:

BlogImage620x324 (2)Its words convinced a fourth-century literature teacher named Aurelius Augustinus—later known as St. Augustine of Hippo—to abandon his sinful life and serve the Church. And it’s the biblical book that Martin Luther called “truly the most important piece in the New Testament.” Paul’s letter to the Romans has shaped how christians have thought, behaved, and believed for over 2,000 years, and some of Christianity’s most precious doctrines find their fullest exposition in its pages.
