When I read the New Testament, sometimes I feel like a director who has just been handed an unfinished screenplay. The dialogue and descriptions are scarce. The characters are doing things that don’t make sense. The story isn’t cohesive. The ending is bizarre.

When PowerPoint was released back in 1990 it revolutionized the presentation scene, and as a result became quite popular in the church. While PowerPoint may work in the church setting, there are simply too many things it can’t do.
Here are 4 reasons why you should put PowerPoint aside next service, and try Proclaim:

You get up early, you carve out time for Bible study, and you have an insight as you read. But reader beware: if you don’t write that insight down, you didn’t really have it. It had you. And it dropped you, perhaps never to pick you up again. Unless you have a steel-trap memory, you need to take notes.
I’ve been taking Bible study notes in various ways for almost 20 years. I also have hundreds of pages of sermon notes from world-class expository sermons. The first several years of those Bible and sermon notes were taken on a trusted, lasting technology called “paper.” But not long after Y2K I got a brand new, shiny Palm Pilot, and my note-taking habits changed forever. Since then, all my notes have been taken electronically, including many of them in Logos Bible Software.

The first reviews of The Unseen Realm have been posted and the consensus is overwhelmingly positive. People are raving about the astounding insights found in the book and the accessibility of the writing. Laymen and academics alike have shared their thoughts about The Unseen Realm and we’d like to share a couple of links where it’s being discussed.
This summer Mobile Ed wanted to take you beyond the studio, so we sent our film crew to Israel to collaborate with some of the world’s top archaeologists in order to build a course that teaches you how to do biblical archaeology. Dr. Craig Evans led our team overseas to capture the process, tools, and theory behind the science.
Logos Mobile Ed has worked with leading professors to deliver theological education that’s accessible anywhere. But talking about biblical events and places is not the same as being there. That’s why we’re excited to announce the next step in theological training: a Mobile Ed course filmed on site in Israel.
Whenever a resource you own is updated, you’ll get that new content—for free—so your Logos library is always becoming more valuable and staying up to date with the latest improvements.
Here’s a list of Logos resources that were updated throughout August.
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.
I recently received this question from a Logos user: I am trying to find Paul’s co-laborers who are women. Is there a way to search just for the women in Paul’s letters? Excellent question! Happily the answer is “yes” with the Concordance tool found in Logos Now.
If you’re not familiar with Logos Now please check it out because, in my humble opinion, the Concordance feature by itself makes Logos Now a worthy investment. Among many other things, the Concordance tool can build master lists of people in Scripture. Then we can filter those lists according to numerous characteristics including gender!

The September Free Book of the Month is here! Download Mentor Commentary: Amos, absolutely free!
When commentaries meet inductive study
The book of Amos is full of unfamiliar references, beginning in the very first verse. The inductive method of Bible study—the one that focuses on simply asking questions of the text—is an incredibly valuable and rewarding way of understanding what Amos is saying.
