The Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20) has driven the Christian mission since the birth of the church.

Much of this work is done upon the faith that God is actually directing our work, unseen from our physical world.

Freedom, Love, and the Law in Galatians

In Galatians 5 Paul discusses the freedom believers have in Christ. He writes, “For freedom Christ has set us free” (5:1), and, “You were called to freedom” (5:13).

using logos in seminary

When one of the Logos Pros traveled to Desiring God to train John Piper on how to use Logos Bible Software, we offered additional training to Bethlehem College and Seminary Faculty. In this post, BCS adjunct professor Dieudonné Tamfu writes of his own experience with Logos. 

My journey with Logos Bible Software began in 2005. At the time, I was a pastor in Cameroon and had limited resources to study the Scriptures. I cannot put into words the significant shift that the software brought to my studies. I spent much more time studying, not because of any weakness in the software, but because I now had resources to pursue almost endless in-depth studies of every passage of Scripture.
