Here’s a look at this month’s top products:

Baker Studies on Preaching Collection (37 vols.)

Regularly $461.90—get it for $399.95!

This collection assembles 37 volumes filled with practical advice, strategies, and tips for preaching accurate, engaging, and meaningful sermons. Learn to effectively minister to both genders in your congregation, discover new approaches to preaching the Old Testament, and gain insight into the use of narrative exposition. This collection also includes numerous sermon-preparation tools, such as tips for preaching without notes, collections of illustrations for biblical preaching, guides for preparing a preaching plan, and ideas for special services. Beginners and experienced preachers alike will find this collection useful in making God’s Word come alive.

The New Daily Study Bible: New Testament (DSB) (17 vols.)

Regularly $199.95—get it for $179.95!

This fantastic commentary set for pastors, teachers, students, and laity features the words of William Barclay, which continue to inspire readers today with scripturally sound exegesis. Barclay’s purposefully accessible writing style is evidence of his passion for bringing God’s Word to both laity and biblical scholars. His thoroughly researched works begin with important historical background, clarifying the context in which each New Testament book was originally written. Then, launching into commentary, Barclay discusses the Scriptures a handful of verses at a time.

The Life and Works of George Whitefield (13 vols.)

Regularly $199.95—get it for $179.95!

In these volumes, you’ll find hundreds of letters and journal entries that illuminate George Whitefield’s character and his earnest desire to bring all whom he encountered to Christ. Five biographical works are included, each shedding a unique light on this traveling preacher who crossed the Atlantic Ocean an astonishing number of times throughout his life. Whitefield’s associations with the Wesley brothers, Charles and John, are also noted, particularly in an account of John Wesley and George Whitefield’s dealings with the Church of Scotland, aptly titled John Wesley and George Whitefield in Scotland.

New Testament for Everyone Series (18 vols.)

Regularly $199.95—get it for $159.95!

These volumes provide a series of guides to the New Testament. N.T. Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to furnish them with his own fresh translation of the entire text. Throughout the series, Wright’s own translation is combined with background information, useful explanation and interpretation, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today.

The Supremacy of God in Preaching, rev. ed.

Regularly $13.99—get it for $11.50!

John Piper contends that preaching is not simply an exercise in motivational speaking. The goal of preaching is to worship God and proclaim him as supreme. It is God’s desire to be glorified through the preacher, and the aim of the preacher is to respond accordingly. The Supremacy of God in Preaching is not another “how-to” guide for the pulpit ministry, but is a challenge issued toward every preacher to elevate the God of the Bible through sound biblical preaching.

Take time to honor your leaders

It’s not too late to let your pastors know how much they mean to you, so be sure to take time to show your gratitude before the month is over. And remember to continue to pray for your church leaders.

Introducing Logos Bible Software 6


Logos-6-launch-Small-Group-300x300We study the Bible for insight. We look to God’s Word to know his mind, to understand his truth, and to be reminded of his love. We seek insight for living our daily lives, and we aspire to share that insight with others.

Logos 6 is all about delivering insight.

Building on the innovations in Logos 4 and 5, the new release features new tools for exploring the Bible, connecting it to ancient and modern literature, and sharing your insights with others.

While our library of books is larger than ever, it is the new digital-first content that lets you explore the Bible like never before.


We’ve had scholars tag every cultural concept in the Bible, then extend that tagging to other ancient literature. This is a unique new database that helps you see connections that were nearly impossible to find before.

A new propositional outline of the Bible was created for the Greek New Testament, and it can be displayed as a live filter alongside your choice of English translations.

logos-6-launch-new-Mosiac-MediaA team of artists and animators created ready-to-use teaching slides, videos, and animations, using thousands of photos and the presentations of experienced seminary professors.

The all-new Bible Atlas will soon cover every mappable story in the Bible; it features new content in a pan-and-zoom interface as intuitive as any online mapping tool.

And we’re introducing a new type of digital tool for highly specialized work in specific areas of Bible study. The Psalms and Proverbs explorers are specifically designed for exploring those books, and they feature original scholarship fully integrated into the tools. This is just the start of a series of new tools for going deeper in your Bible study.

The new Factbook connects the new datasets, tagging, and rich media, and it’s just one of dozens of significant improvements to the user interface.

We are so excited about Logos 6 because it manages to answer many requests and suggestions from our users while still delivering an incredible amount of new content and innovative features. It is at once a must-have upgrade and a whole new product to explore.

We hope you find it a useful tool in your study and ministry, and we welcome your feedback on how to make it even better.

When You Want to Yell at God: Introducing the Transformative Word Series

when-you-want-to-yell-at-god-the-book-of-jobLexham Press is proud to announce our new Transformative Word series—and the first volume, When You Want to Yell at God: The Book of Job, is now available on Pre-Pub!

The Bible is read and experienced diversely around the world. The New Testament has been translated in over 1,000 languages (and counting). Each culture brings a unique lens to the Bible. These perspectives are important, but we rarely get the chance to see them. Because of language barrier and distance, we have limited access. The Transformative Word series is designed to help illuminate these perspectives.

We’ve enlisted church leaders and scholars from around the globe to show us the transformative significance of each biblical book. Each contributor will write in their native language, and their book will be translated and published in multiple languages.

Our first book in the Transformative Word series is by series editor Craig Bartholomew. Bartholomew was born in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa, and he currently lives in Canada as a UK citizen. He has a PhD from the University of Bristol and is the H. Evan Runner Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Religion and Theology at Redeemer University College. He is also the author of Ecclesiastes in the Baker Commentary on the Old Testament Wisdom and Psalms series, an associate editor of the Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible, and the coauthor with Michael W. Goheen of The Drama of Scripture.

When You Want to Yell at God helps us see the book of Job with fresh eyes. Job’s story can be difficult to take in. Living a just and honorable life does not always guarantee blessing. Sometimes we are met with suffering instead. But by revealing Job as the height of biblical poetry, Bartholomew shows us that God is always faithful. Through Job, he shows us an inspiring and beautiful struggle that we can apply to our own lives.

Place your order and learn how Job’s story can transform your life.

We’ve already confirmed several books in this series, and the list continues to grow:

  • Gospel of Luke: Craig Bartholomew
  • Gospel of John: Nicolas Farelly
  • Acts: Mike Wagenman
  • 1 Peter: Ray David Glenn
  • Revelation: Matthew Emerson

Help get this series off the ground by ordering When You Want to Yell at God on Pre-Pub today!

Take Back the Screen with Proclaim

proclaim-simple-powerful-intuitiveIt’s Sunday morning.

You worked on your sermon all week, and today is the day.

You read countless commentaries, listened to other sermons, and even rewrote the whole sermon Saturday night. It feels like a really great Sunday.

Before the service, you’re welcoming the new family while the media team is frantically gathering USB drives and building the final presentation. It’s 10:01 a.m, the first song starts and everything feels wrong. You are preaching about one attribute of God and the song is about another. Clearly this is going to be a mess! This is not what Sunday should feel like.

Let’s tell this story the Proclaim way:

It’s Sunday morning.

You worked on your sermon all week, and today is the day.

You are able to greet the new family without any stress. No need to make sure all of your notes are on the computer, no need to see what songs the worship leader chose—with Proclaim, you were able to collaborate on Sunday’s service all week long.

In Proclaim, you started a conversation about your sermon and let everyone know the topic. This allowed the worship team to pick songs that complement the sermon and guide people to the corresponding Scripture. The rest of the team joined in, and today the service will focus on a single aspect of God’s character. The music and the graphics on the screen lead everyone to the Scripture while the sermon ties everything together.

Sunday shouldn’t be stressful

Let Proclaim Church Presentation Software help you take back the power. Build your service with Proclaim so all the elements come together seamlessly (and beautifully). Proclaim stores all your presentation media in the cloud, so it will be on the church computer when you need to present.

Why You Should Integrate Audiobooks into Your Daily Routine

the-cost-of-discipleshipDon’t let day-to-day activities compete with your Bible study—instead, make them work together with audiobooks.

Audiobooks are perfect for when it feels like life is getting in the way of your study. They increase your productivity, help you integrate the Word into your life, and keep you grounded and focused on the things important to you. The struggle to choose between important day-to-day tasks and productive study doesn’t have to be difficult—with an audiobook, you can accomplish both.

Working out, hiking, driving, cooking, and other regular activities are all part of a healthy lifestyle. But when you’re doing them, you can’t read a book or study in front of a computer screen. It’s during these times that audiobooks shine: just choose your reading pace, then listen, learn, and find inspiration—regardless of what else you’re doing.

Audiobooks help you find time to think about important questions and find answers in places you may have overlooked. Watch this short video to see how you can integrate audiobooks into your daily routine:


Choose from 100+ audiobooks

Visit Logos.com/Audiobooks to see a selection of well-regarded works from respected authors and theologians.

Many of these audiobooks are currently on Pre-Pub, which means you’ll get the best deal when you pre-order them. When they ship, you’ll be able to listen to them on both your desktop and your mobile devices. And your play data will sync across platforms—you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off last time, regardless of the device you’re using.

Logos 5: Attach Notes to Headwords

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.

Last week’s blog post about adding notes to verses generated some questions and comments, so I’m following up with a similar discussion about adding notes to headwords.

I’ll introduce the subject with a personal story. I remember years ago when I first started studying Scripture, every topic was brand new to me. As I studied passages, I investigated individual words and topics like Paul, redemption, Corinth, kosmos, and on and on. For every subject or word, I read articles in dictionaries, encyclopedias, and lexicons recording my findings on paper. Inevitably in a few weeks, I’d come across the same topic or word in a different text, so I’d either rifle through paper looking for my previous findings or start the study from scratch again. Digging a deep well from which to draw water was slow going for me in the beginning.

With my testimony as a backdrop, imagine every time you study an English, Hebrew, or Greek word, you deposit your discoveries safely in a notes document. Then the next time you study that same word, Logos will indicate that you’ve been down that road before, and with the click of a button, all of your previous research will be available to you!

Here’s how to do just that:

  • Choose Documents | Notes
  • Name the Notes file something like “English Words” (A)
  • Open a Bible to a passage like Acts 4:36, in which Barnabas is mentioned (B)
  • Double click the word Barnabas to open a dictionary article about him (C)


  • Right click anywhere within that article (D)
  • Select Headword Barnabas from the right-click menu (E)
  • Select Add a note to “English Words” (or whatever you named the notes document) (F)


  • Notice that Logos creates a note in the file named Barnabas (G)
  • Also notice that Logos places a note indicator next to the headword in your dictionary (H)
  • Add all your research about Barnabas to the content box (I)


  • Continue to add more text to this same content box as you conduct your normal research about Barnabas throughout various books
  • Close all the panels except your Bible
  • Pretend it is now weeks into the future
  • Take your Bible to Galatians 2:1, in which Barnabas is referenced again (J)
  • Right click the word Barnabas (K)
  • Select Selection Barnabas (L)
  • Select a resource, other than the one you previously opened, from the menu (M)


  • Notice it opens to an article about Barnabas (N)
  • Look what is next to the headword in the dictionary: a note indicator saying you’ve studied this word or subject before
  • Rest the cursor on the indicator to see a preview of your content (O)


  • Click the indicator to open the note

Since you added the note to the headword, every topical book containing an article with the headword Barnabas will have an indicator pointing to your notes document!

I encourage you also to create notes documents named “Hebrew Words” and “Greek Words“. With these files created, follow the same steps as you study Hebrew and Greek words. Over time, you’ll end up with your own personal “dictionaries” with riches you’ve mined from various resources!
