How to Quickly Find Every Rhetorical Question in the New Testament

how-find-rhetoricalHow would you find all the rhetorical questions in the New Testament—like “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?”

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.

For years Logos has had the ability to link multiple panels so that they scroll together. For example, when we link a Bible to a commentary and jump to John 3:16 in the Bible, the commentary automatically follows along.

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:

Get Craig S. Keener’s Commentary on Romans—Absolutely Free!

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. It’s little wonder that commentaries on Romans are so popular, and so crucial for in-depth Bible study.

During the month of October, you can get Craig S. Keener’s New Covenant Commentary: Romans absolutely free.

2 Digital Bible Study Tips for Busy Moms

tips-for-busy-momsMy wife regularly works domestic miracles. Case in point: she actually reads her Bible first thing in the morning.

She’s a mother with young children and a lot of responsibility. We never know how much sleep Mommy will get on any given night, and she occasionally has to microwave her first cup of coffee several times before being permitted by circumstances—three circumstances between the ages of 2 and 6, to be exact—to drink any of it. So she doesn’t read her Bible every day. But every time I glance over her way at church I see that the ESV Readers Bible I got her has plenty of notes and marks in it; this is a mother who never stops trying to know and live the Bible.

She wants her Bible study to be rich and rewarding; she wants to hit the veins of gold sometimes far beneath the surface.

So I put my copy of Logos on her iPad (this is completely legal, by the way), and she has access to the same Bible study resources I use in pastoral work.

Busy moms—like the one to whom I’m married—are often pulled in a hundred different directions. They may be excused for thinking they have no time to learn complicated Bible software. Logos does have a learning curve, but you only have to go a short way up it to see a big difference in your Bible study. Here are two tips for doing just that (two instead of the usual three—since moms are busy and who has time to read the middle point in a blog post?).
