The Best Bible Study Software just Got Better. Logos 9 is Here!

I’ve been using Bible Study Software for over two decades. I have used various versions of nearly everything on the market, including numerous software packages that are no longer available. About ten years ago, I started using Logos Bible Software, and have never looked back! And this year’s version, Logos 9, is the best version yet! Before you reader further, know that if you want to get Logos, you can get an exclusive partner discount on Logos Bible Software by following THIS LINK. The following post will cover some of the updates and items in the new version of Logos Bible Study Software, but let me share with you something that I am particularly happy about, which has been around for a while, but I have only recently started using… At my place of work, they recently installed new comp...

Study the Bible this Year

I will be returning to publishing my Bible Studies and podcasts next week so you can learn the meaning of some tricky passages in Scripture. Hopefully these studies will continue to help you in your spiritual growth in 2020 the way they have for the past 20 years. Can you believe it? I’ve been writing and teaching online for TWO DECADES!

Give the Gift of Bible Study for Christmas!

I read and study Scripture every day, not only for personal and spiritual growth, but also because I like to teach others what I have learned from the Bible. As I study, I normally like to read and study using paper books, but in recent years, I have found that Bible study software is increasingly helpful. Bible study software reduces the time I spend reading and studying, and also helps me use the powerful search functions. In the past, I have used two different Bible study software resources: BibleWorks and Logos Bible Software. I used BibleWorks for Greek and Hebrew studies, and Logos Bible Software for everything else. But BibleWorks has gone the way of the Dodo. They shut down last year and will no longer be selling their software. Thankfully, Logos has me covered. They have an excell...

Putting on the Belt of Truth (Ephesians 6:14a)

It has been said that truth is stranger than fiction. This is definitively the case with the following true facts: Most animals don’t eat moss because it’s hard to digest and has little nutritional value. But reindeer fill up with lots of moss because it contains a special chemical which helps keep reindeer warm in the icy arctic temperatures. Moss, for the reindeer, acts like antifreeze in a car. A lightning bolt generates a temperature five times hotter than the sun. One cup of neutron star weighs about 480 million tons. If you lived in Virginia 300 years ago, you could have paid your taxes with tobacco. If you are scared of spiders, you will be happy to learn that you are more likely to be killed by a champagne cork than by a spider. One thousand years ago, the Grand Vizier of Persia ha...

NICNT and NICOT on Sale at Logos

The New International Commentary on the Old Testament (NICOT) and New Testament (NICNT) is easily my favorite series of commentaries. I own almost all of them in the hardback versions, but recently had the chance to fill out my set through Logos Bible Software. I chose the volumes on Job, Psalms, Matthew, John, and Hebrews. Logos is having a major sale on the sets, with the full collection (53 vols) at 48% off. You can can individual volumes for $29.99 or less. If you don’t have Logos Bible Software, you can use my code, REDEEMINGGOD8, to get 10% of your purchase, PLUS 5 free books. Even though I have most of the NICNT and NICOT series on hardback, I love using Logos for these commentaries because I can search through the volumes much more quickly than with the paperback versions. For exam...
