Marriage conferences are a great way to strengthen and encourage couples in your congregation, but hosting one can be a logistical nightmare—not to mention expensive. This February, Faithlife is partnering with Matt and Lauren Chandler to bring an affordable, user-friendly marriage conference to your congregation—no matter where you are.
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.
A Logos user recently submitted this question to me:
I own the Logos edition of Robert Morgan’s book 100 Bible Verses Everyone Should Know by Heart. How can I get these verses into a Passage List so I can use the Scripture memory feature with them?

It’s barely November, but already stores are stocking Christmas decorations and carols are playing on the radio. It all feels a bit early—but if you’re preparing sermons, lessons, or papers based on Christmas passages, now is the time to prepare. That’s why we’ve partnered with Fortress Press to offer Matthew 1–7 from the Heremeneia Commentary Series totally free this month. When you add Matthew 8-20 for only $1.99, you’ll gain insights from the book of Matthew as a whole, not just the birth narrative. Get both now.
Today is J.I Packer’s 90th birthday! Packer is perhaps one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Like C.S. Lewis before him, he has spent a lifetime popularizing complex theological ideas and reaching a diverse audience through winsome writing alive with passion and charisma. The author of many classic books on the Christian life and theology, the 90-year-old theologian continues to inspire Christians across the theological spectrum.
In honor of his birthday, we’re sharing some of our favorite Packer quotes. Be sure to share your favorites—just hover over an image to reveal sharing options. And let us know the impact Packer has made on your own Christian life or ministry.
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.
Last week, we announced a new series of translations of Abraham Kuyper’s writings in public theology. This monumental series is comprised of eight key works across 12 volumes. While most of the translation has already been completed, producing these volumes will take some time. The first volume, Our Program, will be released on November 10 and another volume should be finished before the end of the year. Our goal is to have all 12 volumes completed within two years.
“Love” is the third most commonly looked up word at Merriam-Webster.com. Do you want to know what “love” means? You ought to. “Love God” and “love others” are the two most important commands of the Bible, on the authority of Christ himself.
Maybe you’ve already heard that agape (ἀγάπη) is the standard word for love in the Greek New Testament, and maybe you’ve heard that it points to a specific kind of love: a selfless, giving, non-emotional love—as opposed to the friendship love of philia (φιλία).
But I want to question these common assertions, give you a liberating tip for using Greek in your Bible study (whether you know Greek or not), and then apply that tip to one passage in which the meaning of agape figures prominently.
