Digging into Ancient Culture with Logos

logos 6 cultural concepts
 
Digging is usually a part of any good treasure-hunting story. Some intrepid explorer hunts down a hidden “X,” then plows up the earth with a shovel. The problem is, some treasure is buried deep—really deep—and to dig it out with a shovel could take hours or even days. Wouldn’t it be better if you could use a big piece of equipment, like an excavator, to move the dirt more quickly? The Cultural Concepts tool in Logos 6 is like an excavator for ancient biblical cultures, so that you can understand Scripture in their original context.

An Apologist Confronts His Doubt

Mike Licona was at a spiritual crossroads, and he couldn’t have reached it at a more inconvenient time.
An apologist confronts his doubts
As the apologetics coordinator for the Southern Baptist Convention’s mission board, Mike gained the reputation of a stalwart defender of Christianity. He’d written two books on the historicity of the Resurrection. He traveled the country, debating the philosophical merits of Christianity on college campuses and in churches. But as he continued his doctoral studies, Mike felt a familiar presence lurking near the edges of his consciousness. The unsettling specter he thought he had banished had returned.

His wife Debbie could sense it too. Mike describes the moment they acknowledged its unwelcome reappearance. “One night I’m lying in bed and I figured my wife was asleep. We probably hadn’t said anything for half an hour. And then I just heard her voice pierce into the darkness. ‘You’re doubting again, aren’t you?’”

He could avoid it no longer. Doubt had made a dramatic re-entry into the apologist’s life. But this time was different. This time he would face it head on.

The IVP New Testament Commentary Series is on sale now through June 30th. Save $89 when you get the whole set.

A question I’m sometimes asked is, “Jonathan, do I really need another commentary series?” My answer is always a resounding, “Yes!”

I understand the hesitation: print books are heavy, are difficult to pack and store when you move, and become unwieldy when you try and reference multiple sources at once. If you’ve ever had your desk covered with commentaries, left for two minutes, and then tried to remember which commentary you were just reading, then you know the frustration. Logos fixes that.

Create About-the-Author Pages for Your Logos Resources

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.

As you well know, before reading a book, it’s helpful to become acquainted with its author. The more we know about the writer, the more we can place the words of the resource in the context of his or her worldview. For example, we enjoy the daily devotional, My Utmost for His Highest, but do we know Oswald Chambers? When did he live? What was his theological bent?
