We started performing maintenance on Notes sync during the U.S. holiday Monday, September 7th. We started Monday, September 7th at 2 PM PDT, and we originally expected the service to be offline until Tuesday, September 8th at 8 AM PDT, however, the process is taking about twice as long as our preliminary tests indicated. We now believe it will complete in the wee hours of the morning (PDT) of Wednesday, September 9th. Things are going well, just more slowly than we had expected.
We will perform maintenance on Notes sync during the U.S. holiday Monday, September 7th. We plan to start Monday, September 7th at 2 PM PDT, and we expect the service to be offline until Tuesday, September 8th at 8 AM PDT.
You will still be able to create notes. They will be stored locally, but they will not sync up to our servers until the maintenance has been completed. During the maintenance, there will be an exclamation point indicating that there is an issue with sync; this is expected and it will remain until the maintenance has been completed.
If you have questions, please join the discussion in the forums.

The Bible is composed of disparate pieces, each with their own author, audience, and purpose. It can be hard to come to full understanding of Scripture when we focus on each piece separately. Only when we step back to see the wider context can we begin to understand the mosaic of Scripture.
What happens, though, when we encounter a passage that doesn’t fit into our understanding of the full picture of the Bible? Dr. Michael Heiser helps us understand these difficult or troublesome passages in his new book, The Unseen Realm.
John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion is among the most important works of theology in church history. It’s a central text for Protestantism, especially the Reformed tradition, and continues to be read and referenced widely today, just as it was in Calvin’s day. But it was a long and winding journey that led to the version of the Institutes we now know.
You do and you don’t need Hebrew to understand the Old Testament.
You don’t, because the Bible has already been translated into English.
You do, because there are different levels of understanding: There’s your certified mechanic and your weekend warrior; there’s your freshman and there’s your professor.

Every month, we offer a special discount on one of our top products. September’s deal is the Westminster Bible Companion Series (33 vols.). This series offers something different from many commentaries. Instead of lengthy technical discussion, it offers concise, highly readable discussion that explains the biblical book in its original historical context and explores its significance for faithful living today. Much like William Barclay’s Daily Study Bible series, it’s a commentary that lends itself well to devotional reading.
The threads of the unseen realm are woven throughout Scripture. They begin before creation, can be seen throughout the Old Testament, and have major implications for Jesus’ mission in the New Testament. However, because of our modern perspective, these threads are often overlooked, ignored, or misunderstood.
