How Your Logos Library Is Like Facebook

how your logos library is like facebook

Imagine being one of the first people to use Facebook. Without many others to connect with, would the social media company hold any value to you? Probably not.

But add a couple dozen of your close friends to the site, and suddenly you’d probably start to care—at least a little bit. Add another couple dozen coworkers, a few people from your small group, your kids, a hundred or so people from your alma mater, and a few of your favorite companies, and suddenly you’re checking Facebook every day. As more people join Facebook, the site’s value increases, and chances are the value increases exponentially, not linearly, as each additional person joins the site.

Your Logos Library is Like Facebook

The books in your Logos library are interconnected, like friends on Facebook. And the more books you add to your library, the more connections, or links, your library has between books. This causes the value of your books to increase exponentially as you add more. This Christmas season, the most affordable way to add hundreds of books to your library is the 500 Book Mega Pack, 2015 Edition.

Here’s how the Mega Pack will give you better search results and super-charge your library.

If you’re like I am, sometimes you’re tempted to quickly read familiar Bible stories without pausing to notice all of the details in the passage. Take for example the Christmas story in Luke 2. Look at all of the people, places, and things Dr. Luke mentions:

Why I Love December’s Top Product

Blog Image 630x349

Every month we feature a special discount on one of our top products. December’s top product is one that means a lot to me personally: William Barclay’s The New Daily Study Bible: New Testament.

I first stumbled across a volume of this series, in an older edition, at my local public library. Intrigued, I read it, and I eventually worked my way through every volume of the series. It was my first experience of reading any kind of commentary on the Bible, and although I’ve read many other commentaries since, Barclay’s works are still important to me.

The Meaning of Shalom and the Spirit of Advent

what does shalom mean

We’re celebrating Advent by giving away dozens of free books and beautiful Advent Art. In this post, Martin Weber reflects on the peace signaled by this season of anticipation. Martin is the author of numerous books, including My Tortured Conscience and God Was There: True Stories of a Police Chaplain. He currently manages SDA content for Faithlife.

As we scramble in and out of stores for holiday shopping, Salvation Army volunteers stand beside their red donation kettles, patiently ringing their bells. They invite us to remember those who shiver outside the circle of sharing. Many pastors answer that invitation by partnering with the Salvation Army, conducting funerals for homeless men and women without church or family.

During my last pastorate, I conducted one such funeral for a man named Scottie. With his drinking buddies scattered throughout the sanctuary, I eulogized Scottie’s life as of infinite value to God and to us all—no matter what his struggles and setbacks. Suddenly like a shout from hell, drunken hollering interrupted my tribute.
