Logos is powerful—so powerful that understanding how to use its many capabilities takes some time. That’s why we have the Logos Pros, our team of expert Logos users. The Pros are dedicated to helping you implement Logos features into your Bible study. And this Friday they’ll show how to use the very latest Logos features in a live, free, online training event.
In celebration of Pastor Appreciation Month, you can enjoy special pricing on some of our best pastoral resources! This includes works like N.T. Wright’s New Testament for Everyone series, the Journal of Biblical Counseling, and the Logos 6: Training Manual Volumes 1 and 2. With so many great choices, it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why we’re highlighting this weekend’s special: the John Piper Sermon Archive (1980-2014).
This month, get the book Luther in English totally free. And, you won’t want to miss our Plus One, Grace and Reason: A Study in the Theology of Luther for only $1.99!
As Brian Gerrish notes in his introduction to Grace and Reason, “‘Luther on reason’ is a vast subject—perhaps, surprisingly so—and even when the ground to be covered has been carefully mapped out, it would not be difficult to lose one’s path.”
Today, we’ll be examining snippets from this book and expanding our research using Logos. To start, I open the resource in my Logos software.
We believe amazing things happen when people study the Bible for themselves. That’s why we make the most advanced Bible study software in the world. You use Logos, so we know you share that same passion. We want to give you a chance to share what you love with your friends and family—and say thank you for making what we do possible.
There is way too much information out there for you to ever read, let alone process and assimilate. I dare you to click the “Random Article” link on Wikipedia and see how many clicks it takes you to get to a topic you really know something about. It took me 41 clicks before I reached State highways in Virginia (I grew up there).
And that’s just the English version of Wikipedia. German took me 52 clicks (I got lucky); Spanish, 23 (super lucky); French, 48; and please don’t malign me for giving up on Polish before I began.
Media Ecologists such as Neil Postman, Marshall McLuhan, and evangelicalism’s own T. David Gordon have observed/complained that the amount of available information in the modern West is actually an obstacle to knowledge. How can you determine which information is worth having as the flood rushes by? How can you make sense of the relationships of things when those things are constantly swirling around you?
For 3 years, I was a college campus pastor. That trying and rewarding experience gave me a deep appreciation for the commitments, passions, and challenges of pastoral ministry.
In college I had this amazing friend.
He was stupendous at Bible study because he had this really cool system. He had taken two copies of Strong’s Concordance and sliced up the pages so that every entry was its own slip of paper (he needed two copies of Strong’s so he could have entries from the front and back sides of pages). He had carefully arranged all these slips on the university gym floor, and he had marked up every single slip: “S” for when the word was used as a subject in that context, “O” for when it was used as an object. Words of Christ were highlighted in red, plural words in purple, singular in chartreuse.
Any time someone writing a theology paper needed to know which plural words Jesus used as objects in his sentences, my amazing friend was their man. He’d disappear into the gym and come back in a few hours with a bunch of slips—and he threatened them within an inch of their life if they didn’t return them all.
Darrell Bock, Craig Evans, and Douglas Moo are three people whose names come up often around here—and for good reason. Their biblical commentaries and reference works are studied in seminaries across the globe. They are continual best-selling authors and have trained pastors and students of the Bible for decades. Many people would love to take a front row seat in each of their classrooms, but that would require moving across the country … three times.
That’s why we created Mobile Ed—to bring their teaching to you.
We invited each of these scholars (and over a hundred more) to record their course material in our studios. Then we enriched their lectures with “smart” transcripts, recommended readings, quizzes, and more.
So that we can share their insight with as many people as possible, we are giving open access to three lectures from our most popular courses. You’ll learn four steps for better Bible study, experience life under Roman rule, and improve your understanding of Paul’s letter to the Romans.
